Today was Day 2 of the 30 Day Shred and it was another sweat fest! 240 calories burned in under 30 minutes. I love the fact that I can burn that many calories in such a short amount of time. Jillian Michaels is my new personal kick butt trainer and I like her philosophy when she says, “Pushing yourself, that’s what it’s all about”. I’m definitely feeling it on Day 2! But I like it and I’m going to keep pushing it!
Here are my stats:
July 2, 2009
240 calories burned
Max Heart Rate: 87%/162
Average Heart Rate: 72%/135
I woke up this morning feeling it in my arms and a tiny bit in the knees but it’s very little knee pain, nothing a little ice can’t take care of right?
Here’s a little more info about the 30 Day Shred workout. In addition to warm up and cool down are the 3 circuits. The circuits are fun but tiring! In each circuit you are doing the moves multiple times and Jillian does not cut you any slack so there is hardly any time to breath HA
Push ups, Squat & Press, Jump Rope, Crunches, Reverse Crunches
Dumbbell Row, Lunges & Biceps, Butt kicks, Punches, Crunches
Chest Fly, Side lunge w/anterior raises, Jumping Jacks, Butt kicks, Punches, Bicycles
So that’s a bit of a circuit overview. I’m not very good at lunges due to bad knees but also balance. I can’t seem to stay standing but I’m bound to master them along with push ups. Today I used the Perfect Pushup’s that mom bought me a while back and it’s so much easier on my wrists to use those to do push ups.
I can’t seem to fast forward through Jillian’s video welcome and intro. It would be great to be able to skip ahead and just start the workout instead of having to listen to that every time.
Beside the fact that I’m really struggling with the shin pain during the workout, today was another good 30 Day Shred workout.
If at anytime you care to join me, don’t forget to pick up yourself a copy of the 30 Day Shred from Amazon. I noticed the price went down from yesterday! $7.99 is today’s great deal, wonder how long that one will last.
Make it a great day,
P.S. Here is my overview of Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred.
I too am on day 2 of the shred, so far so good! I am loving it, she keeps me going when i want to stop. The thing i like is that its not too long for each circuit, just when i feel i am going to expire, she changes to another exercise, which is like having a rest..keep it up
Celia, glad to hear the 30 Day Shred is going good so far. I haven’t done it again since I reviewed it but I should think about it. It’s a good boost that is for sure.
