Nowadays there are all sorts of professional fitness trainers and exercise gurus coming out with books and DVDs on healthy weight loss. Jillian Michaels is one of these experts. You may even recognize her name from the hit NBC reality series, “The Biggest Loser.” She worked on this show to assist many men and women with weight reduction. Now she has a DVD out entitled “30 Day Shred.” The official pitch is that it helps you drop up to 20 pounds in 30 days.

With the 30 Day Shred DVD, the dieter learns how to do circuit training and build lean muscle mass. There are three twenty-minute circuit-training workouts, to help you burn off plenty of calories and strengthen your body. These fitness regimens are based on Jillian’s unique approach, which is 3-2-1 strength/cardio/abdominals. To break it down more, you start with three minutes of strength training, and then do two minutes of cardio, and then one minute of ab work. Before you get started, there is a short warm-up. Once you finish the workout, there is a stretch and cool-down session.

    Does anyone do the diet plan with the 30 day shred? I have heard a lot about it but not found anything on the internet. I am on day 3 of level 2 of the 30 day shred. Hard to begin with, got rid of the muscle ache by day 8. Have no more back ache, feel great but have put on weight instead of loosing. I am still determined to stick to it till the end but does anyone have any explanation or ideas why I aint loosing??

    your diet should be low in fat and calories. eat fresh vegetables and fruit as well small meals with protein and carbs every 3 hrs to keep your metabolism up.

    Yes it does work. Just gotta keep up the work. No junk food. And your body does get really strong, knees, which I used to have trouble with, all pain is gone. Love it.


    Shred Wha?

    Yeah but snacks and junk food TASTES SO GOOD! I aws in the supermarket, saw that Haagen Daazs was 2/$7 and I got happy! The programming to accept fatty foods runs very deep.

    I have at least 3 decades of prior training. I am an ex-military police, trained in boxing, powerlifting, and body building. Now as a 60 year old fit male, I must commend Jillian for this very effective training video. It has helped my conditioning, and allows me to get in a quick and efficient workout. I am seing a feeling results after just a few weeks. This dvd is highly recommended by me for both men and women. My only advice is to get up off of your rear end and do it!

    Is this workout suitable for guys as well?



    My husband and I are taking the 30 Shred challenge. We are moderatly sore but very committed. We are combinding it with a healthy diet and cycling 3 days a week. Hoping to see real results by day 30!



    Did this work for you?

    are you supose to feel like you want to throw up after you excersise? i did level one and i really feel like i want to puke.



    I did too. I almost gave up but went back two days later and it was easier. I take a few breaks during workout.I’m sure it will get easier.I am trying to get motivated right this minute!



    start with the modified version and work your way up to build endurance. I did that& it felt good, a bit sore, but not pukey



    I have been doing Jillians 30 day shred for 3 months and can finally see my abs! I did the workouts 4 times a week but once i got my endurance up, I did 2 of the workouts at a time. (usually 1 and 3) Now I’ve bought her Ripped in 30 and it has 4 workouts with her same 3-2-1 method. But this dvd is much much harder…



    Hi… Did you lose inches or weight? Also, what was your starting weight? Are you following a diet? …. Trying to get motivated!



    I felt that way also but my second day I slowed it down a bit and did fine ,

    I did level one for ten days now i am going to level two.



    I agree went to level 2 after a 10 days but I did the DVD every other day. I was just very sore so I switched it up with the treadmill
