I have a love-hate relationship with Jillian. I have Ripped in 30, 30 Day Shred, and Body Revolution.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to complete any of her programs. They're good, I know, but I'm not quite strong enough for them. Even level 1 is a bit too much for me, and if I stay at level 1 until I get strong enough to move to level 2, I'll be too sick of it. I did Level 1 of 30DS 6 days a week for about three weeks, and was SICK of it, but couldn't move onto Level 2.

So, right now, I'm doing Leslie Sansone's Firm 30 twice a week, and working my way up. I'll probably add 30DS and Ri30 to the rotation on those two days for variety. As I lose a bit more weight, get into a better workout routine, and get a bit more conditioned, I might try to conquer Body Revolution again. I tried starting it Tuesday, but I realized that I wasn't ready for it quite yet, so I decided to go with Leslie Sansone workouts to start.

I like it too. It's not enough to be 100% of my cardio for the week so I run 2x a week as well. Week 2 is definitely the hardest for me. Two full minutes in plank is the worst! The DVD really helped me with my push ups goal. I could do 20 "girl" push ups but barely 1 military style. Not any more! Thank you strength training!

I like it because it is only 30 minutes long, so it's perfect for getting my day started. I do Ripped in 30 for a month and the 30-Day Shred for a month. I've noticed definite improvement in what I can do with each time through. If it ever seems "too easy" just up the weights and the speed at which you do the cardio.

I use to do the Insanity workout but, I ended up stopping it because it was just to long. I started the Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 today not expecting much and it was a workout for sure. Yea! Plus it was only 10$ on Amazon Instant video!
Best part, it's only 30 mins!!
