Default 30 Day Shred Question

I am just beginning Jillian Michael's 30 day shred and I was wondering if people who have tried it have noticed any significant muscle building? I am using 5 lb weights instead of the 2-3 lbs recommended. From what I read, it seems like there is no substitute for lifting heavy, but I thought this would be a good introduction to using weights for me. Any success stories?

If you stick with this DVD along with reducing your calories you will have significant fat loss and tone up quite a bit.

Good call on the 5p weights that's what I use too. I highly recommend this DVD - I love it. Great results. Also, take before pictures and measurements because the scale might not budge for a while but you will see size loss. Good luck!

I use 5 lbs too! I def. have seen a great change in muscle tone, esp. when you add the pushups and once I stopped doing them on my knees, I noticed great things!
