I have several DVDs with different types of exercise, and I sort of rotate them around. I can't stand too much of one thing (how boring!). You can also watch some on youtube, etc. I like 30 Day Shred, but not all at once. I live 45 minutes away from the nearest gym, I live in podunk along a paved road, but it has a decent amount of traffic (mostly big oil well trucks). I can jog outside, but I have to use videos to be able to work out year round. We do what we must!

JM's Ripped in 30 is more challenging and I agree, up those weights.

Do you have a full body strength training program as well? If not, I suggest you do. It's difficult to build strength/muscle following a fitness video. They're usually high reps and low weight and you will be unable to reach muscle exhaustion each set. I highly recommend investing in some barbells where you can change the weight. Lift heavy and low reps to muscle exhaustion in about 4-10 reps and 2-3 sets.

Women shouldn't be afraid to lift heavy, if you're using 5 lbs weights you're basically just doing cardio. My strength training routine doesn't include any weight under 20 lbs.

Just because you go back to level 1 doesn't mean you have to do the exercises at their pace. If I remember correctly she has other instructors doing the exercises with her. Follow the one who does the exercise with more intensity.
I surge daily and the simplest exercise can be done with tremendous intensity.

You will not be doing yourself a disservice.

Check out the BeFit channel on YouTube. They have several programs as well as a variety of clips from different videos. I'd also up the weights.

Hi! I really need som advice from you guys...

20 days ago, I started the 30 days shred program. I started on level 2 and finished level 3 today. I am so sick of those levels, and I just can't stand to do them again. What I don't know is what to do now. Starting on level 1 seems pointless, I feel like I would ruin what I've worked so hard for. So I was thinking on doing level 1, and them a 10-minute intense ab-workout. Do you guys have some tips for me on what I can do? I'm not starting on the gym before after the summer, so I need workouts I can do at home (I have 3 kg weights). Videoes or program? What would you do in my situation?

Thank you!
