30-Day Shred (Take 2)
So, ok....now that I have totally completed Couch To 5K (something I had started a few times, but never finished), I was thinking I need to tackle something else of the same nature. About this time last year - I got this video from Netflix to try it. My sister-in-law talked about it a lot, so I wanted to see what it was all about. I think I made it 3 days! Haha. I remember yelling at the screen A LOT!!! I gave up!
Well, it's been in my queue for a LONG time to try again. Now is the time. I'm in better shape now than I was a year ago. Even with that said, putting this DVD in will make you quickly realize - you're not in as good of shape as you thought! Instead of yelling at the screen this time - I'm growling and sighing. You don't stop. For 20 minutes. Jillian says - if you want to see results in a 20 minute workout - you CAN'T stop. Makes sense! I've only tried Level 1 so far. It's full of jumping jacks, butt-kicks, punches, jumping rope, lunges & other strength moves, and various crunches. I'm intrigued, but slightly scared of Level 2 right now. Ha! We'll see. I should take a look at all the levels.
After 2 workouts, I can definitely feel that I worked out hard! Even though it's short, it's a total body workout. I feel "the burn," just about everywhere today!
Supposedly you can lose 20 pounds in 30 days with this video. We'll see what happens. I'll let you know how I progress through the levels. Let me know if you give this video a try!
