Hello! You've probably seen my posts on the forum and just wanted to say good luck! I have really enjoyed my first week on the program, and posting my progress really fuels me to keep it up. I'd like to add extra cardio during my Level 2, let us know how you feel adding that to your routine. Have fun Shredding!

Great! I'm glad I've got some buddies Shredding with me! I loved it tonight, and the walk/jog after actually felt great because it felt like I was kind of stretching. It wasn't a super vigorous cardio workout I did after (3.5 miles in 45 minutes) but it felt good. Hopefully I'll still be singing the same tune in a few days when the soreness sets in!

Great Nurse! Can't wait to see your update. I just updated my original post. I got up early this morning and did the shred and a little shorter amount of cardio. I have a client dinner right after work today and wont be home until very late, so I decided NO EXCUSES this time and got up at 6am (I HATE getting up early), but now I'm glad I did. I need to be committed to the 30 days.

I have a feeling the soreness will set in tomorrow. For those of you who are further along, when you are sore is the video impossible? Or do you just do the shred without weights?

Also, how many days are you planning on staying at each level? I was thinking 10 for each, but not sure.

When I get sore, I just try to grin and bear it, you know, work through the pain. It's not so bad after the first set of exercises As for days, I'm doing 10 days per level, like you were thinking. Today is Day 8, I'm hoping to fit it in!

Thanks Tina, that was what I was planning - grin and bear it! Good luck on day 8, I'm sure you can find the 20 min. somewhere to squeeze it in. Do you feel like Level one is getting much easier for you?

Today time isn't the factor, it's my husband is off work again, and he hogs the TV all day...literally! I'll probably end up doing it late at night again. Oh well, as long as I do it!

YES! Level 1, if I do it the way I did it on Day 1 (girly push-ups, staying with Anita)...however, yesterday I tried real push ups and going with Natalie...it felt harder...doable, but harder, and I'm more sore today. But, I have a feeling by day 10 (I'm on day 8), I'll fell really strong

So true about day 2 Amyleigh! I LOVE that you did line dancing for your cardio, what an awesome idea.

I am pretty sore today, but I powered through day #3 this morning. I'm not doing extra cardio today though, going for a long run tomorrow after the Shred.

shy, i take linedancing lessons at a local caterers every thursday. i never thought of it as cardio before because i only knew like 2 dances. now, though, i have about 6 or so that i do, plus the 2 new dances i learn each week i figure is a pretty good workout...plus it's a blast

Ok, maybe I misunderstood something, but I've used this video for a year or two and I never tried to do it for 30 consecutive days. When you're building muscle your body needs rest. I am a huge Jillian fan and am currently on day 25 of "Making the Cut". There are rest days built in each week in that program (which is 30 days) because she stresses not to train the same muscle group more than 2x per week. If you are working out with sore muscles you aren't given your body enough time to recover and rebuild. You will cause breakdown of muscle fibers by using them before they heal. Just my two cents, not to say I'm not guilty of working out with sore muscles sometimes too -- but you're not supposed to. Also, just FYI as to how many days on each, I stayed on Level 2 quite a bit longer than Level 1 before moving on. It is much harder!!! I rotate either Level 2 or 3 into my workouts now... They're both good. Level 1 seems to be a bit easy for me now. But I'm quite an exercise junkie. I will tell you though that this video changed my physique like you wouldn't believe. Even my husband says that though I worked out before, the muscle I have now really came about because of Jillian!!! Good luck to all of you and give those muscles a rest when they need it

Remis- I agree. I actually am going to have 2 rest days/week. From doing a bit of research it seems like most trainers, including Jillian, say that you should have at least 2 rest days out of every 7. The rest days can be "active recovery" days where you still have some sort of exercise, but a bit different (light jog/walk, dancing, light yoga, biking, hiking, etc.) which is the way I'm going to work it, because if I break my routine for 2 days a week, I don't know if I'll jump back into it. These light exercises give your body time to heal like Remis said, but also encourage quicker healing because they encourage blood flow to the muscles. According to Zen Grey (who I love), you actually recover faster through active recovery than through laying around on the day off (she said the same for injury...but I think that really depends on the type of injury).
