I just did day 2 on 30 day shred. I only have 8 lbs. weights at home so I've been using those and I can hardly lift my arms now because they're SO tired from the moves on the dvd. Does Jillian ever mention how many lbs. the weight should be or do people just use whatever? Thanks for your input!
First goal: under 180:
Second goal: 175 or below:
Third goal: 168 (no longer overweight):
Fourth goal: 160 or below:
Final goal: 145-155 (not sure if this will ever happen):
8lb is very impressive! I have 3lb, 5lb and 10lb weights that I use for Jillian, depending on the exercise. The 10lb I pretty much only use for the chest flys. And somehow I am always sore, especially if I have left a week or more in between doing the video. I don't think she says anywhere what weight you should use, although they look like 2-3lb in the video.
I started with 3 lbs, and now use 5 lbs as much as I can (although the V lift thing in Level 2 I can still only use 3 lbs and hate it!). I want to get some 8 lb weights for bicep work and chest flys, but need to wait until my budget can take it.
