List of Ingredients
30-Day workout for a ripped body by Jillian Michaels.
Most dieters know Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser. On the show, she attacks obese contestants and forces them above and beyond their comfort zone to achieve outrageous weight loss results. These contestants are under constant medical care, so dieters should never attempt to workout for 6 to 8 hours a day like the contestants. Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 requires only 24 minutes a day for 30 days.
During each workout, the follower completes 9 minutes of strength training, 6 minutes of cardio and 3 minutes of abdominal workouts. The workout is broken into three cycles – strength, cardio and abs. Each week, the follower starts a new workout with the same break down with new exercises.
The workout includes variations for beginners and advanced followers. Amazon.com sells the DVD for $10. In some areas of weight loss, specifically supplements and video games, Jillian Michaels receives horrible reviews, but her workout DVDs tend to be very popular. Out of 130 reviews, more than 100 give the DVD a 5-star review. While the workout may be perfect for achieving a higher fitness level, the dieter will need to combine a healthy eating plan with the DVD to lose weight. No amount of exercise will promote weight loss if the dieter is eating 5,000 calories of unhealthy food every day.
