The first time I did this program I did it 30 days straight. It was a killer during the first several days but pushed through it. Got easier. Had awesome results. Started it again last year finished end of 2nd level due to injury at the gym. Trying it again for Dec.

I have a hard time by day 3. A friend suggested not "giving it all you got" every single time, but still put in the DVD and get some movement. Also, she suggested mixing up... the Levels aren't too different, and that way it doesn't get monotonous.

Hope this helps! Great work y'all! Keep it up! emoticon

Just remember that if you're sore, keep moving. Go for a walk or do some yoga or pilates. Movement is what helps the soreness. I never can manage 30DS every day. I'm actually bored to tears by level 1, but not ready for level 2. Now, I'm on ripped in 30...not quite sure why, but I like it so far. Need heavier weights.

I had wondered the same thing. The day I was supposed to do day 5 I got sick so my body decided for me. Today is day 7 for me so we'll see how it goes :)

I remember being really sore in the beginning, but after day 5 the pain went away. It does get better!

I'm in so much discomfort aka pain from Mondays workout the only thing I was able to this week was swim Tuesday and run/walk today which was uncomfortable
I'm thinking there's no way I can do this daily. I wonder if my age has anything to do with it? I'm 45. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

Right now I can't imagine doing it everyday. I also have fitness ADD so I have to do lots of different things or I get bored. My plan is to rotate my JM in with my Leslie Sansone and BL dvds. On Sundays I get out of the house and run at the local high school. I can't run on regular surfaces so I had to can my C25K workout.
I also use Jillian when my head is in a bad space...she exorcises my demons as dh likes to say.

Depends on your body. I wouldn't recommend it, as your body needs time to rest and heal.

When I first re-started working out 3 years ago after my twins were born, I started with 3 days a week, and worked up to 5. If I work out more than 5 days a week, the extra days are very light -- cardio with no weights or pilates, just to keep my muscles limber and give them a chance to rest.

I always take one day off, I believe her reccomendations section even says to do 5-6 days per week. Good luck!!

I believe the idea is to do it every day for 30 days. But just do what works for you. I managed the thirty days straight the first time I did the program a couple years ago - but this time I haven't been able to pull that off. I started Level 2 two weeks ago and am just finishing today.

Sorry if this has been asked to death but i didn't see it. Are you supposed to do this every day, or should you take a day or two off each week? What I've read about strength training suggests that you should give your muscles time to heal, or you will compromise progress. Thanks guys!
