Wed, 20 Jan 2016 01:24:49 EST New to group, started Bodyshred 10/30/15 Hi everyone! I started Bodyshred today and I must say, I don't think its for beginners! She moves so fast and doesn't really give you much of a heads up on what the next move is. I definitely still got my heart rate up and loved it! I can see I will get results quickly if all the DVDs are like this!! Since I got the program in the mail today, I'll be starting the meal plan Monday. Not sure if I'll just pick the recipes I like or do the strict schedule yet. Fri, 30 Oct 2015 20:58:39 EST New to the team, not to SP Hi, I'm Heather. I'm 32 from Virginia Beach, VA.

For 30 days, I'm going to do a variety of JM routines, moving to more difficult each day. I get bored easy, so this routine will work well for me. Today I did 30 Day Shred Level 1 and I want to die.

Thanks :) Tue, 14 Jan 2014 14:05:52 EST Which workout is Jillian's hardest? It seems like Jillian has come out with a whole bunch of new workouts in the past year (or I haven't kept up). For a while 30DS was like the holy grail workout, and gave great results. I've done 30DS, I have ripped in 30 and felt like it was a little easier than 30DS. <BR> <BR> For those who own the full collection and have done all of Jillian's workout DVDs, which one would you say was the hardest and/or provided the most results? I really want something to kick my butt! Sun, 5 Jan 2014 19:04:32 EST Jillian micheal bfbm & nmtz I finished 30 day shred and now I have just started with jillian micheal bfbm & nmtz.

I just started Ripped in 30 hoping that it will help. <BR> <BR> I carry pretty much ALL my weight in my legs/butt (I know, not as bad as the stomach), but I'm thinking because my legs are already pretty muscular, I'm not going to be able to get down to my goal weight.

I was pleasantly surprised. <BR> <BR> I have been using 30 day shred off and on for almost a year. This last February my cousins and I decided to workout together using the video. We don't do it every day, instead it is more 2 to 3 times a week. So the progress through has been slower. I am excited to say that this week I start level 3!

Fri, 21 Dec 2012 17:41:33 EST Suggestions Back in the beginning of 2012, I started really getting my workout situation figured out. I'd do one of JM's DVD's per day (either 30DS, Ripped in 30 or 6WK 6PK) plus a good 30-45 minute walk/run per day. I went from 128 to 115 in about three months. Of course, it also helped that was I eating a very balanced and healthy diet. After I got tired of JM's workouts, I decided to give P90X a shot. I finished my first round of P90X and only lost about 3 pounds, so I was down to 112. However, I ...
