I'm on day 4 of Ripped in 30. She uses the same 3 2 1 program. Week 1 is kicking my butt. Scared of week 2.

I'm already at the end of level 2 (finished day 10) but I think I can still gain some benefits from level 2 so I might stick with it for a little longer before moving onto level 3. I started using 5 lbs weights for level 1 but now I use 8 lbs for the first two circuits of level 2 and my 5 lbs for the last circuit. It's a killer with V-Squats and miltary presses with leg extentions. I'm still trying to perfect that last circuit even with just 5 lbs weights!
Just thought I'd recommend, if you find any of the circuits too easy with a lighter weight (you don't have to take any breaks where your muscles reach exhaustation) try a heavier weight. I think it's more important for your muscles to reach exhaustation than just making it through the set without breaking. Just a little advice if you want a really effective workout. ;)
"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

I'm about to start the "30 day shred!" I'm going to also try eating Paleo for the whole 30 days. I'm a nursing student, so I don't have too much spare time, but this seems like something even I can fit into my schedule. Anyone else want to start?
