When I did the Shred I did it on my ST days and followed it up with my regular strength training routine. I took a rest day in between where I did JM's BFBM for cardio. I did 15 days of level 2 and 3.
Now I'm on level 2 of Ripped in 30 and do the video 3x a week. I have 4 ST days but one of the days I do HIIT, the other 3 R30 followed by my ST routine. I still use BFBM for cardio on my non-strength training days.
"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 am about done with the shred. I stayed on level one and two longer than 10 days, and I took rest days. To me, rest days are a must. Number 1, I get bored and some days you don't feel like it, and maybe instead you want to go for a run or do a different video. And 2, if you are exceptionally sore, tired, or not feeling well, it's a good idea to give those muscles a break. I lost some weight, but have really toned up and my stomach has definition like it never has before. I'm still not 100% satisfied; I want to lose more, tone my legs further, so forth; but I think the shred is a great head start into getting fit. Before this, I was totally sedentary!
Good luck on your shred!

Ok so I bought this video about a year ago I want to say and I used it about 9 times on level one, I loved it then so I want to start again, I'm going to be doing the basic 10 days level 1, 10 days level 2, etc. and then start over, but Is 10 days too long to go without taking a rest day? I was planning on doing one whole segment, rest day and so on, but I'd love some other shredders advice!! thanks in advance (:
