If you’re just joining me, I (we. you?) have started a new 30 day challenge. I’m following the 30 Day Shred DVD
by Jillian Michaels. This 30 day challenge technically started on Friday (dates are January 7th- February 5th) but feel free to join in if you want. By the time I get up the final posting of my stats (and collect any from those willing to send them to me!) it will be several days after the challenge ends, so you have some leeway there.
I still haven’t decided how I feel about the Shred. It’s hard, but it defiantly gets easier after you do it a couple times. I think this video is intended to be done every day, but I don’t like that. Your muscles need a break and working them every day isn’t giving them any time to recover. I could understand if it was a different exercise each day that worked a different body part, but I have worked my quads every day I’ve done the Shred. My quads are mad at me.
Here is where I’m doing the DVD workout…
In our playroom/spare room. I push the toys to the side and I have a little space there.
Here are my workouts so far:
Day 1: Shred level 1
Day 2: Shred level 2
Day 3: Rest day (Only because I’m at work all day and too tired to workout when I get home late)
Day 4: Shred level 2. 30 minutes elliptical. 20 minutes free weights.
Day 5: 50 minutes: 10 miles on the bike. Half of Shred level 1.
I want to hear if you like the Shred or not!! What do you think of it? Hard? Easy? If you’re not doing that- just let me know how you’re doing with your normal health and fitness goals. And visit each other!
These 30 days will be up soon! I will be collecting before/after stories/pictures/whatever to post so keep that in mind if you think you want to share yourself and your blog!
