Default Ripped in 30 Support

I will be wrapping up Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred tomorrow followed by a rest day, then I plan to start Ripped in 30. I have the DVD and I'm ready to go, but I was hoping some others who are currently doing, or planning to start Ripped in 30 might want to come together for some support and encouragement and then to hopefully share some outstanding results.

Looking forward to this next exercise challenge!

I'm planning to join you on this one, but have to finish 13 more days of 30DS first.. So I'll be a little bit behind but whatever.
Can't wait to hear what you think of it!

I'm so excited to see this thread! For some reason ripped in 30 isn't catching nearly as much popularity as 30ds even though it's the same kind of concept. I've done 30ds a few times in the past and just was not into doing something old I get bored.

Anyway, I started yesterday so today I will be on day 2 today. I want to actually take some before pics this time. Goodluck btw... I found the first workout a lot harder than the first one of 30ds, it might have been because I used 8lb weights, I will probably use the 5lbs for the rest of week1.

Welcome luckyme0510! I noticed the same thing about RI30 not being as popular and I couldn't find a recent thread on 3FC (only 1 from over a year ago). I'm excited to get started but I'm going to make myself take my rest day tomorrow. I will also drop back to the 5 lb weights to start. I've been starting each level in 30DS with 5s (started level 1 with 3s) and moving to 8s once I get the hang of the moves, around day 3 or so.

Level 1 Day 1 done!

I really enjoyed Ripped in 30. It was definitely tough. I prefered the 3 exercise cycle on the 3 minutes of strength instead of the 2 exercises in that part of 30DS. I'm excited and I like the idea of 7 days on each level rather than 10 (I always started to feel my interest wane around day 7 or 8).

I dropped down to my 5 lb weights for most of the exercises but used 8s on some of them. I only modified 1 exercise (the side lift ab one - I did with the knee support on the one leg instead of all the way up on both feet and one hand).

I can say I gave it my all!!!!

Level 1 Day 2 done! Today was my "cheat day" so I was sluggish and struggled to find my motivation, but once I got going I went for it 100%.

I bought both 30ds & ri30 and did find 30 ds seems to be more popular. Probably because it says in the title to lose weight. I think most of us want to lose weight then worry about toning. I wish I would have focused on toning much sooner cause now that I am at goal I now have a goal if being toned. Think this goal is going to take longer than the weught loss one. I just started level 2 of 30ds but will soon enough be joining u guys. I played with the idea of doing 30ds in the morning and ri30 at night instead of my usual cardio at night, but didn't get to, or was scared to get around to doing that. The shred has me skimping in the elliptical going from 50 mins to 30 to 20 and even 10 today after level 2 kicked my butt. I Originally bought both to research them and then decide which to keep. 30ds seemed like the beginner video. But have decided what's 10 bucks so I am going to unwrap it tonight, to show that I plan on doing it. I am cheap and if I open it, better believe I am gonna do it, just not until I finish the shred. Is it like the shred with 3 levels, if so might just try each level once on my off days to see what it's like. So will Forsure be joining in 21 days or 22 if I need a break. So how do u like it, is it really tough, what r the differences between the two.

RI30 is 4 levels so you do each for a week instead of changing every 10 days. Its a similar set up to 30DS: 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, and 1 minute abs (3 rotations of that like 30DS). One difference is that the 3 minutes of strength uses a rotation of 3 exercises rather than a rotation of 2. I really do enjoy it and I prefer the rotation of 3 strength exercises. Of course I'm on level 1 so I may not be as enthusiastic in a week or 2

I can see why not repeating the same exercise might be a little less boring. I hope I get to post here soon about starting ri30

I definitely want to give ripped in 30 a shot! I officially began day 1 of 6 Week 6 Pack this morning, I have done the exercise a few times the last few weeks to make sure I am keeping good form, but I definitely want to do Ripped in 30 too! Go girl!

I ordered 6 week 6 Pack and Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism on Amazon and they should be here tomorrow. I'm trying to ramp things up since I'll be in a bathing suit situation at the end of April

Level 1 Day 4 down. I really tried to talk myself out of it since I have a headache (knowing exercise usually makes my headaches worse) but I pushed through and persevered.

Yes I have to be in a bathing suit starting near the end of May and my husband and I are taking our honeymoon (we wanted a lot of time to save money to go somewhere nice!) this fall/winter, so I have got to get my butt in gear!! I was thinking about doing Ripped in 30 or 30 Day Shred along with 6W6P.

Great job with day 4!
