I was reading some blogs and forum posts on MFP and there are some people who have a lot of weight to lose doing the 30 Day Shred with a twist. Instead of 10 days of each level, they are doing 30 days of each level. The results are inspiring.
Has anyone though of doing this? I did the 30 Day Shred last year and only lost 2 pounds and a couple inches off my waist.
I am thinking about doing this and seeing what my results are this time.

Go you! I haven’t even looked into the 30 day shred but from the looks of it and what other people say about it…I am scared. Very scared of it, haha.

I’m not sure if most people would get good results doing this. You need to switch up your exercises in order to keep getting the best results. It’s called muscle confusion. Maybe you could go through the 30 Day Shred 3 times and changing the weights or intensity each round?

I would think it would depend on what you are looking to do. If you have a lot of weight to lose, doing 30DS or really any exercise routine for 90 days will probably help shed a lot of weight. But if you are looking more to tone-up and maybe lose a little bit, then its likely that your body wouldn’t respond as well to the same exact moves for 30 days in a row like PP mentioned. Even after a few days you get used to the moves a bit, making them easier, so I’d think that you’re body may not be challenged enough doing it that way. But hey, you could always give it a shot and see what happens…
I’m planning to continue doing the 30DS after my first 30 days of 10 days each level, but I’m gonna do a different level each day (and probably mix in other DVDs) so my body doesn’t get too comfortable and know what’s coming.

I have about 60lbs I want to lose. So I asked my friend who is a trainer about this. She suggested that I do 30 days of each round. I also add more abs to the workouts, since it doesn’t feel like enough. I have lost 7lbs in 11 days so far.

I did the videos (not religiously) and probably got in about 20 workouts in 32 days. I definitely think they would be great over the long-term, though I’d get bored doing the same workout for 30 days straight. I did switch around a little, did 7 days of level 1, then level 2 but modified for a couple days, then a killer level 1, then level 2 for 4 more days, then modified level 3, etc. I think it’s okay to switch around a little, and I’d worry doing the same exact workout every day.
I also forgot my weight when I went home 4 days before the wedding, so I did a couple workouts where I subbed moves from other levels in to get a total workout that didn’t require free weights. I think you could make it work for you.

I think that’s the key thing. How much weight do you have to lose? The posts I was reading, the woman had like 150 pounds to lose and her trainer also suggested she do 30 days at each level and she lost 45 pounds in 90 days doing it this way and toned up at the same time.
someone who doesn’t have a lot of weight to lose and just wants to tone u about 80-ep probably won’t benefit from doing it that way.
I have about 80-90 more pounds I want to lose, so this may work out better for me. Of course, it would just be an added workout since it’s only what? 25 minutes total? I would still do my walk/jog workout too on top of it.

Before my wedding I had about 10-15 lbs to lose. I certainly did this longer than 30 days–90 days was probably closer to it. I hated level 2, so I switched between Levels 1 (tougher cardio for me) and Level 3 (tougher abs). I made sure to do it at least 3 times a week, but probably never made 7. I was also religious about counting calories. I was able to achieve the results I wanted, but it took longer than 30 days.
