Phew I made it through Days 3, 4 and 5 of the 30 Day Shred. To be honest, I’m starting to get bored doing Level 1 and I’m so ready to move on to the next level. I wonder if it will make a difference in the workout but somehow I doubt it. I was thinking that I would possibly do Day 6-10 at level 2 and then Day 11-15 on level 3 and start over like that.
Jillian is totally committed to helping you lose weight and feel great!

Breathing is very important when working out so definitely follow what Jillian tells you as far as when to inhale and exhale. Proper breathing helps so much when you’re working out.
Day 4 is when I first started to feel bored with level 1.
217 calories burned
Max Heart Rate: 86%/160
Average Heart Rate: 70%/130
Torn as to whether to move on to level 2 or not. I modified the butt kicks with a bit of jogging and some of the jumping rope with leg kicks. Had some knee pain so thought it would be best to modify with a move that does not cause any issues but still keeps my heart rate up.
Max Heart Rate: 86%/160
Average Heart Rate: 72%/135
I’m feeling good so far with the workout. I think it’s really smart for me to switch back and forth on the weight sizes and I’m doing much better with the various crunching exercises. The hardest for me are the bicycles, can’t keep my legs up off the ground for too long but I’ll get there.
What are your thoughts about me moving on to level 2? Or should I stick it out for 5 more days?
PS. Price on the 30 Day Shred dvd at Amazon went down AGAIN. Grab it while you can!
P.S.S. Here is my 30 Day Shred workout video overview. I’ll be adding links to the overview for each post I do throughout the workout so you can find it all in one place.
I love the 30 Day Shred!
I know what you’re saying about being bored with Level 1. I stayed there for at least a month- doing what you’re doing- about 3 x a week..
If you think you’re ready for Level 2, I say go for it! However, if you feel like Level 2 is too intense/tough after you finish, no shame in going back down to Level 1. Level 2 is hard. In a good, kick your butt kinda way. Let us know what you decide!
Katie, thank you so much for your input. I thought about it but decided to just stick with it the way I had planned. Only 3 more days on Level 1, yeah!
