Honestly, if you're just starting the 30 day shred for the first time then I woudln't rotate through the levels. I would do each level for 10 days as you're supposed to. One of the greatest things about doing each level for 10 days is that you see such improvements each day when you continue with the same level for 10 days. It helps motivate you because the gains in strength and endurance are vrey noticeable. After I was done my first full 30 days then I started to rotate them based on what I felt like. That woked well for me.

I have been on a few threads that do The Shred levels rotating through days... Day 1 - Level 1, Day 2 - Level 2, Day 3 - Level 3, Day 4 - Level 1.... This may bring the variety you look for but the levels are different difficulties so if you are not used to working out I would make sure you are comfortable with Level 1 first!
I have been a victim of overworking the muscles and not enough rest... not good and ultimately curbs your productivity. Do what works for you.
I agree that the cardio is beyond simple!! I don't get to do the workouts a lot because I spend a lot of time at the gym. But They make for a good (and short) workout when I can't get to the gym!!

I did the 30 day shred every day for 30 days and got amazing results. I would highly recommend that if you're going to do it then do it every single day. You won't get any results from doing once a week. You wtached it, so you can see that it's not crazy intense strength training. You'll be sore the first couple of days and then you won't feel as sore afterwards. You're never too sore to do it which is great. I got amazing results so I bought the ripped in 30 and now I'm doing that one.
They're meant to be done every day though with no breaks. It's how the program is designed and I can tell you first hand that it works wonders!
I've also done "burn fat boost metabolism", "no mor trouble zones", "6 week 6 pack", and " yoga meltdown". I love them all, but sometimes I don't have time to do the longer workouts.

I just got 30 Day Shred and Ripped in 30. I was thinking I was getting 6 - 20 min workouts, not one level that I'm supposed to do every day. I don't like to do ST every day and will most likely use them just once a week or so and not on consecutive days.
I watched the level 1 Shred workout today and I like how simple the cardio is. I have 2 left feet and I'm excited to do the basic routine. So, I'm glad I bought them even if I can't use them every day.
I think her instructions are to do the video 5-6 days in one week, then move on to the next week. My advice is to have a little bit of variety in your routine, and make sure whatever strength training you're doing is fatiguing your muscles in 8-12 reps, 1-3 sets.
Hope that helps,

I want to start doing Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30, but do you do the same work out every day? Are you supposed to do the same level every day for a week them move to the next level. I read some where that you aren't supposed to do the same work out every day. Thoughts? Thanks
