30 Day Shred

So I hopped on the bandwagon and started the 30 Day Shred. I have always loved Jillian on the Biggest Loser and then after reading (and seeing!) so many positive reviews of the Shred, I had to follow. Especially when I saw it for so dang cheap on Amazon.

I ordered the DVD Monday, but since the Shred is currently available for free OnDemand, I started on Monday at level 1. I will do each of the 3 levels for 10 days.

The workout on Monday was intense! It is only 20 minutes long (maybe a little longer including the warmup and cool down), but I was shaking afterward. My legs were like jelly. Yesterday (Tuesday) was no joke. I was so sore. More sore than when I started playing hockey again. I procrastinated shredding again because I knew it would hurt even more than Monday due to the soreness. I did it though- I wanted to cross off that day on the shred calendar I made.

I was about to cry while I was doing it. If I thought yesterday was bad from Monday's workout, I don't know what today is. At least twice as bad. My calves, hammies, quads- all burning. I dread getting up to pee... and with the amount of water I drink, I'm always getting up. AHHH. And to think, I get to shred tonight too! At least it goes quickly and felt shorter yesterday than I was thinking it would.

Please keep good form even when you're tired!

I love the Shred, but I know for a fact that my bad squat form (because I was tired) while doing The 30 Day Shred caused my recent knee injury.

Yikes. I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!

Keep it up! It does seem to go faster once you know what's coming! I love the Shred ... I need to get on a schedule though. I tend to do it just "whenever"

I just ordered it. I've seen so many positive reviews, yours finally pushed me over the edge. Thanks for the link to the Amazon site... what a great price!
