SparkPeople Ripped in 30 - Jillian Michaels Team Messageboard 4 weeks, 4 workouts using the 3-2-1 system mixing 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio & 1 minute abs SparkPeople Ripped in 30 - Jillian Michaels Team Messageboard Week 3 I bought Ripped in 30 about a month ago. I have been trying to do the video 3 days a week. I have noticed a big difference mostly in my stomach, not much weight loss though. Wed, 18 Feb 2015 07:43:42 EST Circuit 1 does not repeat all things? Hi there, I am doing my Jillian workouts on Xbox One and in circuit one she doesn't repeat the alternating flies. Is it that way on the DVD? Just seems strange to me. <BR> <BR> Also, I have done two Days of Week 3 and it is insane. I am so busy trying to survive it that it just flies by though :) Tue, 21 Jan 2014 18:43:56 EST Rymke says HI! Hi all, <BR> <BR> I started ri30 last month but only for a few days. I started again today and am hoping that joining this team will help keep me on track. <BR> I found this list online of calories burnt in the different weeks: <BR> <BR> Week One (5lb weights): 275 calories <BR> Week Two (5lb weights): 300 calories <BR> Week Three (3lb weights): 250 calories <BR> Week Four (3lb weights): 235 calories <BR> <BR> Anyone knows of this is sort of correct? I found another guideline on sp some... Thu, 24 Oct 2013 05:15:58 EST Hey! Week/Day 1 Hey all-- I am new to the team-- new to Jillian Michaels. I did Day one Level eh- today. Somethings I can do advance some things I cannot-- I was dripping and feeling AMAZING - smelling the fat burn after so woo hoo. <BR> I have her app on my ipad-- and I LOVE THE FOOD! Having a family favorite tonight actually! <BR> I am a mom of three, and middle child and only daughter is a type 1 diabetic with Celiac -- so eating in my house is FUN. We are all eat the same basic foods-- Lower carb and n... Mon, 30 Sep 2013 17:03:17 EST Finally! Everything is all about the 30 Day Shred (I have that one too, and it's awesome), and I didn't think anyone was doing the Ripped in 30 program! <BR> I'm going to be starting up tomorrow, possibly tonight (I work today though, so we'll see how I'm feeling). I'm pretty excited that there are others out there doing it with me. I don't have any weights, however, but it's still a good workout without them. <BR> I'm excited to see all our progress! Good luck everyone! Sat, 6 Jul 2013 12:32:18 EST Will it get easier?!?! I'm on my second day of the first week and am completely motivated. I've been spending all my downtime on this website and looking at before and after photos. <BR> <BR> The only problem right now is the difficulty!!! I keep telling myself these are the hardest days and it will get better.. but will it?? Wed, 1 May 2013 11:21:05 EST Discouraged I finished Week 2 Day 2 yesterday and felt pretty good with it, I was able to get through a majority of every exercise (if not all) mostly doing the advance moves, except those crazy crow push ups they are the devil! However I jumped on the scale today and after over a week of working out and eating better I gained 2 lbs!!! I'm so discouraged... Tue, 26 Mar 2013 08:43:30 EST Starting Ripped in 30 on November 26th Hello everyone! <BR> <BR> I'm new to the team and plan on starting Ripped in 30 on 11/26 because there are exactly 4 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. <BR> <BR> I like the Ripped in 30 dvd b/c of the 4 levels and the 3-2-1 system. I am just confused if you are supposed to do it everyday? I didn't think you were supposed to strength train 2 days in a row? So I will be doing it every other day with added in cardio. <BR> <BR> Would anyone like to join me? Fri, 16 Nov 2012 16:37:55 EST Week 3 OMG she don't stop ---- week 3 day one-------- she does kick your BLEEP!!!!!!!!! Tue, 28 Aug 2012 11:39:03 EST New to Forum - On Level 3 I'm a bit of a workoutaholic. I'm always doing SOME sort of workout/workout program. I have done one day of Level 3 (2nd time to be completed this afternoon), and, passed Ripped in 30, have a workout schedule planned all the way through September. I figured it was a good time to reach out into the wonderful world of the internet in search of finding motivated people who will help inspire and motivate me further to stay on the ol' fitness hamster wheel! <BR> <BR> If anyone else is on Level 3,... Tue, 24 Jul 2012 09:46:23 EST 30 day challenge take 2! So I'll stick here for awhile. This 30 day challenge will be alternating Ripped in 30 and 6 week 6 pack abs. So today is RI30 week 1. Gonna add 15 minutes of HIIT to this one. I need to update my ticker and take some beginning photos for this round. I'll update on the workout later. Mon, 23 Jul 2012 09:13:28 EST My 30 day challenge! I'm starting RI30 tonight. I am 6 weeks post partum and have 28lbs to lose to get to goal. I have 2 kids (daughter is 23 months and son is 6 weeks), would love to get my body back in shape by my birthday in October. <BR> <BR> I'll update this thread after each workout. Gonna see if I can get my husband to join me as he needs to drop some pounds as well Sun, 24 Jun 2012 10:04:11 EST Anyone with a bad knee (arthritis) doing this? I am not sure how well this will work for me or how much I may have to modify, but I am up for trying!! I do a lot of aqua therapy but it isn't doing much for me and all my muscles seems to have left my body about a month ago. I used to weigh 319 lbs and settled into a weight of 187 for the last 3 years where I was pretty comfortable. In the last couple of months I have climbed up to 198 and am binging and my exercise has been limited (I also have the problem of being unable to get my hear... Sat, 5 May 2012 15:10:15 EST Level 3 What do you think of Level 3. I think it is a killer! <em>198</em> Tue, 17 Apr 2012 13:35:10 EST New to team, saying hi Hello! I started Thursday 4/12/12 with RI30. I did take Sunday off, but my goal is to do it everyday except Sunday. I am also trying to follow SP meal plans to make meal planning, shopping and cooking easier. I am almost 40 and am ready to be healthy again. I have been on SP since August 2010, lost 35 pounds and then got lazy and gained16 back. So, now I'm back on the program and looking forward to good results. Mon, 16 Apr 2012 18:19:18 EST Results! :) I thought it might be nice if we could share our results with one another so we could motivate each other. I haven't done the Ripped in 30 DVD since Sept. '11. But, I will say, I did it for 16 days straight (4 days at each level) and it totally transformed my body. I had a ton of motivation because I had a wedding to go to (funny how that becomes motivation, huh?). I think my weight dropped by 4lbs. or didn't matter so much...what mattered was how great everything fit! No more jiggle ... Tue, 13 Mar 2012 15:24:48 EST Hello!! So I bought Ripped in 30 after hearing some great reviews on it. I have not watched Biggest Loser, so I was not familiar with Jillian's style. I had only heard about it from others. I do like the way she is. I am just finishing up week 1 today and will start week 2 tomorrow. I have been working 2 rest days in a week to acclimate myself to her workouts, and I have these spread out during the week. <BR> I really hope to see some great results with this :) Sun, 4 Mar 2012 08:43:34 EST Week 2 I just finished week 2. It took twice as long to finish - 10 days to due 5 workouts - due to long hours at work. From my experience, it seems okay to take longer. I built up strength because circuit 1 is tough on the shoulders - at least for me. By the 5th workout, I was doing much better. <BR> <BR> Week 3, here I come! Mon, 6 Feb 2012 21:05:50 EST Not losing!! Is anyone else finding the weight not coming off, even though you do the workout 5-6x a week? I was up 0.2kg last week and 0.5 kg this week and it makes no sense to me! I can't believe I could possibly be gaining that much muscle. Looking at the Sparkpeople calorie deficit graphs, I should be down at least part of a kilogram. Just curious to see if anyone else is noticing the same thing. I will be on day 3 of week 3 tonight. Mon, 23 Jan 2012 12:57:36 EST Week 1 Today was Day 1 of Week 1 - burned 262 calories in 20 minutes. <BR> I used 5 lb weights until my arms got very heavy on the flys and moved to 3 lbs. I think I could have done 8 lbs on some exercises, like the bicep curls. <BR> Now that I know what to expect, I will probably change out the weight sizes. <BR> <BR> I looked at the meal plan and will probably start this on Sunday. Fri, 20 Jan 2012 20:20:22 EST How to track... I posted the following in my introduction but just in case... <BR> <BR> I just started Jillian Michaels ripped in 30 and well I'm trying to figure out how to track the exercises. How are you guys doing it? <BR> <BR> I got the info from a fellow SP member on Jillians' videos and well I happened to buy the roughest one lol. I never did the videos before and man let me tell you I should have started with the easiest ;-) <BR> <BR> But again how are you guys tracking? <BR> <BR> <BR> Mon, 17 Oct 2011 15:22:20 EST Hey every1 I just started Jillian Michaels ripped in 30 and well I'm trying to figure out how to track the exercises. How are you guys doing it? <BR> <BR> I got the info from a fellow SP member on Jillians' videos and well I happened to buy the roughest one lol.

Mon, 17 Oct 2011 15:21:08 EST My October Challenge I am doing a challenge from another Jillian uses all of Jillian's DVDs. I look forward to alternating them and keeping myself challenged! <BR> <BR> I really love Jillian's DVDs and find the RI30 to be fun and challenging. I think level one seems easier than her 30 DS, but I find myself sweating more so I am not too sure on that :-) <BR> <BR> How does everyone else use her DVDs? Following through one and than moving on to another, or mixing them up? Tue, 4 Oct 2011 08:37:18 EST Hi All Hi Everyone!! <BR> <BR> I Bought Ripped in 30 last week and love it!!!!!! I knew I would because I am a HUGE Jillian fan. I am a bit disappointed because I thought that Week 1 would be slightly harder than it is, but I am plugging away and eagerly awaiting week 2. In the meantime, I am just using slightly heavier weights. How is everyone else doing with it? Tue, 27 Sep 2011 14:32:16 EST Hi everyone! I just finished 30 Day Shred Sunday and now I'm on to being Ripped in 30! I did day 1 of level 1 and though parts of it were challenging, it was kinda easy for me after just finishing the Shred. I'm going to increase my weights today and see if that helps. If not, I'll just move up to the next level. I'm looking forward to seeing some more definition in these muscles. I can't believe the changes I saw after the Shred! I'm excited about this one! Wed, 14 Sep 2011 09:32:39 EST Intro Hiya <em>213</em> <BR> I'm Michelle and I am overweight and I'm trying to get a handle on why I sabotage myself when I get close to my goal. So I decided to become a part of group that makes me accountable. I am doing a hybrid program because I get bored with one (also a workout dvd junkie) I do ripped 30 once a week along with 30 day shred. Glad to be here and looking forward to your support <em>252</em> Sun, 14 Aug 2011 14:37:43 EST Weight Loss I was just wondering how much weight people lost doing this program. <BR> <BR> I am on day 3 and I am also following the meal plan. I've lost 6 pounds in 3 weeks doing Jillian Michael's Cardio Kickbox.. <BR> <BR> Ripped in 30 has a lot of strength training, so I was just wondering if people still had great results?? Sun, 7 Aug 2011 14:10:21 EST level 1 Today is day three!! I did the first workout on saturday and OMG I was so sore the next day . Of course I rested the next day and I went for it yesterday. It is definatly a *(*'** kicker!! Today is day three. I am psyched and ready to go. I am doing 5 days a week of her video. Is anyone else doing the same? Or are you doing a few days and doing something else the rest of the week?? Tue, 2 Aug 2011 17:28:44 EST Done with 30 day shred and onto Ripped in 30 Hey there, <BR> My name is Lysanne. I started getting "in shape" after having purchased my wedding gown and realizing what i needed to work on in order to feel amazing on my special day (which is quite far away, December of 2012), so I've got a lot of time. I just finished the 30 day shred and am also doing Yoga Meltdown at night. I've lost 7 lbs and a total of 12 inches (measured 6 areas). I'm not too happy with the results and am hoping a lot more out of RI30. <BR> <BR> Good luck to yo... Sun, 31 Jul 2011 10:18:18 EST newbie I just finished day one/week one of ripped in 30. Really is not for beginners but I finished. If I did this 6 months ago, I would of not made it through. I did it!! She is so motivating. Sat, 30 Jul 2011 12:20:56 EST Jillian-isms I don't know about you all but when I am all sweaty and want to quit a Jillian workout she says something that makes me want to keep going. <BR> I like to be reminded of what I can do and why I am doing it. She is good at that:) <BR> This thread is for your favorite Jillian-isms, not just from Ripped of course! <BR> <BR> What are some of your favorites? Thu, 28 Jul 2011 12:19:07 EST Challenge: Week of July 25 thru week of August 22 Hello, Team! <BR> This thread is for anyone who would like to participate in this Ripped in 30 challenge. <BR> <BR> I just started today. Wow. I almost passed out. Saw stars. Had to pause and get some water and string cheese. It was my own fault, I woke up and had coffee but was waiting on breakfast. A few hours passed and just thought I would do Ripped before eating, BIG mistake. Won't be doing that again! I hate seeing stars! <BR> <BR> I did finish though! Like Jillian says, you don't h... Tue, 26 Jul 2011 18:47:29 EST New Hey there, I just bought the DVD this week and did the workout today. I didn't get to finish it all as my baby woke up and wouldn't let me finish the last few minutes. But I'm hoping this is the workout I need to get back into the swing of things and healthy. <BR> <BR> Is anyone else hear or am I in this alone? Thu, 21 Jul 2011 21:25:00 EST calories burned does anyone know about how many calories you burn doing each level of Ripped in 30? im not sure how to put it in my tracker and have it be accurate. thank you!!! Fri, 24 Jun 2011 11:50:22 EST What's your program? I just finished the 30 day Slimdown program of Jillian's and had great results. I just started Ripped in 30 today and was curious if anyone else doing RI30 was incorporating any of Jillian's other DVD's with their workouts? Mon, 6 Jun 2011 22:24:22 EST Hello! I just bought the dvd yesterday, I will start the 30 day routine on Monday! <em>244</em> Sun, 29 May 2011 09:28:49 EST Anyone trying Jillian's suggest Ripped meal plan? It looked good to me both the suggested meals & snacks, also the recipes, I tried the pop chips with cottage cheese which was great. Thu, 5 May 2011 16:22:16 EST Anyone finished the 30 days yet? Hi everyone! <BR> Just wondering if anyone's been through the whole 30 days yet! I'm on Week 3, but have done Week 4 once this week just to break it up and get over my nervousness about it. These are killer... I still find Week 2 to be the most challenging because of all the plank cardio. My lower body is much stronger from running, but my shoulders are SCREAMING on those planks! I try to measure my progress by noting how many breaks I have to take! <BR> <BR> If you've finished, it would ... Wed, 20 Apr 2011 15:59:41 EST HI I am new to Jillian Workouts!
