Results from week 1 of Ripped in 30

Tuesday, March 29, 2011

First let me stand up and say that I am a Jillian Michaels dvd junkie. I have never gotten results like I have with her workouts. No, the pounds are not melting off of me, but I don't have a lot of weight to lose. What I am reaping from the workouts is a flat stomach, no muffin top, muscle definition in my legs and arms, a nicer butt, smoothing of cellulite on my thighs, and everything is so much more toned. So if you haven't tried one of her workouts I would highly recommend them.

Now back to the business at hand. I started Ripped in 30 a week ago. I love the dvd, it follows her 3-2-1 format she did in her 30 day shred workout. I found week one to be challenging but very doable. Did not have to modify any of the moves. I took my measurements and glad I did as here are the results:
Waist -1"
Hips -1"
Neck -1/2"
Thighs -3/4"
Calf +1/2"
Upper arms -1/2"

Not sure where the calf gain came from but I don't have huge calves so I am good with a gain as it is muscle.

So with week one down, I moved into week 2 tonight and let me tell you.....it is definately a challenge. I did all the moves without modification but they were not pretty. I have my work cut out for me and am thinking that I am not sure that I will be ready to move on to week 3 when it is time. But I have surprised myself with all her other dvd's I have taken on and so I will remain optimistic about this one.

Be back in a week with the results from week 2!

    I finished Ripped in 30 on Fri.!!! I think you will surprise yourself :)
    I found the first day of all the Levels very challenging and always thought I wouldn't be able to advance the following week, but you progress pretty quickly!!
    I LOVED Level's 3 and 4!! Good luck with completing it all!

    That is so cool. Makes me wish I had room in my tiny condo to do a workout DVD. I'd try it.

    Good going, Junkie! LOL.

    emoticon Those are very good results! Isn't it just like Jillian to really take her fans by their word when they ask for more tough love? emoticon I look forward to giving Ripped a go, though doing the Bootcamp first worked out perfectly, having been sick and all.

    Can't wait to hear your assessment of week 2! emoticon
