    @CatABee:  I recommend it. Once you learn the moves, mute her and pump some of your favorite beats to keep you motivated. 

    Also, once you get more familiar with e level, probably around the 4th time, push a little harder. 

    At the end you will definitely see results! 🙂

    I’d recommend it as a starting point. I’ve said this on other posts, but I found it didn’t do much for me in terms of visible results, but it did make me feel strong enough to try harder programs, which I was too scared/weak to do before, and those gave good results.

    I did Tim Holland’s Supreme 90…which is a similar thing to like P90x (with a calendar that tells you when to do each video), I just can’t do those Beachbody videos since they all involve tons of plyo and I have bad knees that get badly injured with jumping. They’re also a bit shorter which worked with my work schedule. If I had better knees, I would have done p90x or Insanity though. My DH has done them in the past and dayum they work if you put in the work!

    @BookishBelle:  I think it depends on your fitness level. Those who started off a bit bigger tend to see more results. It also, of course, depends on how hard you push. I used to very fit, but I’m not anymore. I found 30 Day Shred to be a good reset for me and I did see visible results. When I was at my fittest, I probably wouldn’t have.

    I have other Jillian DVDs I want to try but I have a question for you. All the jumping is brutal on my knees, and you mentioned that you have bad knees. Did you work through it or do some kind of modification? I’d rather not have bum knees at my age, lol. I know Jillian screams about no modifications, but too bad 😛

    I did all of 30DS and loved it. I got really toned. I tried going through it again when I was finished, but I found it boring. I moved on to Ripped in 30, and I love it. I prefer this to 30DS. I am almost done with RI30 now, and then I plan to cycle through 30DS and RI30, doing a different one each day to keep me from being bored and keep different parts of my body working.

    @MrsPanda99:  I just don’t jump as high or use the modified version. As long as I don’t go so high and make sure to land softly, I usually am okay, especially after I’ve been working out awhile and the surrounding muscles are a bit stronger to protect the joints. Sometimes if I felt the non-airborne version of the move felt way too easy I’d grab a heavy weight and do something that worked the same muscle in a different way. Most of Jillian’s jumping is fairly tame and spread out compared to p90x though, so as long as I did it with proper form and not too high I was able do it without major pain.

     

    Edit: the way my knees are, I’ve learned what is sore can-push-through pain and what is “that just clicked out of place you need to stop” pain haha. I try to make myself push through normal workout muscle pain and stop immediately if it feels like the wrong kind of pain because I know it will hinder my workouts (and, you know, walking like a normal person) for days after if I don’t.

    @BookishBelle:  Sometimes my knees bother me too, and I am usually able to modify the move enough to lessen the impact.

    I’ve done it a couple times but on my own timeframe. I’ve seen some toning especially with my stomach… at least I’ll have a nice bikini body for the honeymoon!

    This morning I did the second day of the second routine. It worked muscles I dont ususally use and I can feel it!

     

    I havent seen huge results so far (12 days done) but I am pretty fit to start with (recent lapse but last summer I did a triathlon).

     

    I just wanted something shot and sweet that would tone my upper body for photos at the wedding and leave me feeling more confident for my beach honeymoon. I suspect it will do that, arms are feeling more toned but not quite looking it yet. But I have also had weight gain, which feels bad, so ive stopped looking at the scales!

    Oh, and I think it may be lifting my rear too. Bonus!

    @CatABee:  Nope. I just use 5lbs hand weights.

    I really liked it – after it I was the most toned I’ve ever been! Definitely recommend it
