Jillian Doesn't Kid Around!

Friday, February 05, 2010

I've seen lots of comments about it on the blogs and message boards, and my curiosity couldn't take it anymore (I am half cat, I think.) I just got Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred this morning.

I paid attention to the warnings, and was fully prepared to get my butt kicked. At this stage in my fitness, I *want* to get my butt kicked. Bring it, Jillian.

I was not disappointed. My butt has Jillian's boot prints all over it. I admit, there were a couple of times when I was tempted to take a little break. Just a little. But there was Jillian - she KNEW. "Don't quit!" Drat, how did she know?

I followed along as best I could. When she says "No rest", she isn't kidding! When my muscles screamed and I wanted to stop, I imagined Jillian screaming at me like I was on the Biggest Loser, "Don't give up! Don't you dare give up! You can do one more! Don't ever say you can't!" I did one more jumping jack; one more butt kick; one more squat. All the while thinking it was the longest 20 minutes of my life!

And I loved every minute of it (once it was over). Phew. I'm a glutton for punishment. Excited for another kicking from JM tomorrow.

    Take care of you first... Jillian will be there waiting to dish out more butt kicking when you're ready. ;)

    It's the most awesome workout DVD I've ever had. Jillian is definitely no perky aerobics instructor - she is a drill sergeant! And I love it! From my experience with martial arts, I can definitely see the influence in her style. It's also a pretty intense circuit workout, which is exactly what I'm looking for. Most workout DVDs I've had in the past have been more of a low intensity aerobics. Jillian is definitely going for big bang personal training in a workout video. I give it an A++!

    Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to work out with her tonight. Got a sore throat and feeling under the weather. Planning on taking a nap after I log out.

    Same here... I knew she was difficult but I had to try it. I fell in love with it. And seeing pictures of others doing this workout, how good they looked, really helped me in deciding to do it. Speaking of which, I need to get that back from my sister.

    Yeah I got that one. It's nice when you think you are in tip top shape to have a new challenge. Way to step up and work it super hard all the way through!

    Where is that darn tiny, buff, mean woman emoticon? I like the 30 Day Shred too. I don't follow the plan, just throw it in when I want to get some quick cardio. It feels very intense. Have fun with Jillian.

    I almost got that one! I did the the BL sculpt one yesterday. I thought I would like it because it goes up in levels. 1,2,3. I have been exercising for a while now but don't really do many weights. I thought this would be a good starting point. Funny thing is at the time I felt the burn but did not think it was to bad. Until I woke up this am! My butt is killing me! They say to do it 6 days a week but I don't know if I will do that. Maybe every other day for me. At least at first. Have fun with Jillian!
