DVD Review: 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels

She's been in the spotlight on Biggest Loser for the past few years.  Now Jillian Michaels is taking a break from the hit show by branching off with some DVDs, adopting a baby and educating the public more about fitness as part of an everyday lifestyle.  In her DVD 30 Day Shred, she challenges you to loose those extra lingering pounds and get off the couch.

The workout is a challenge!  This routine can be super intense, but how else to you expect to get quick results with about 25 minutes a day (60 if you do all levels)?  Broken down into 3 levels of progression with modifications for each move make this a top pick for an educational circuit DVD.  Each workout includes 3 circuits.  Each circuit includes 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs.  Just when you think you're about to die you get to switch to another move.  Your arms will fatigue from the hand weights and planks/push ups.  Your cupcakes (bottom) will feel the burn days after; this I promise.  

Fit this in on days when you are crunched for time and want a great full body workout.  Do the whole program along with her healthy meal plan you find online to get in shape for those graduations, weddings or big events in your life.  You deserve to have the body you always wanted and Miss Michaels will be there to motivate you every step/hop/lunge along the way!

  1. This is a really good workout. It's geared a little more to advanced exercisers, but the choreography is fairly basic and you will definately feel this the next day.
    There are three workouts that combine toning and aerobics together which are about a half an hour each. This way, you're burning fat and toning muscles at the same time. It's a little challenging, but fun and effective.
