Fabulously…this is a good question! I have wondered that too.

I am working on Workout 1 of the 30 Day Shred. Any idea how long you’re supposed to stay on each of the three workouts? Are you supposed to be able to get through all three in the 30 days?

Also, I am surprised to hear that P90X and 30 Day Shred have the same results!

Just a guess here, but the 30 Day Shred works as well in a shorter time per workout because it’s great intense interval training. I bet if you mixed it up with other interval trainings and straight cardio for 90 days, you’d be in great shape! But I’ve heard P90X is great too, just haven’t used it.

@Fabulouslyengaged: Thanks for the info! I’m not that far in, but there have been a couple of days I’ve not done it. I guess I need to be more committed. 🙂

P90X is amazing – Im doing it now, but I have no time constraints.  Im sure you could do the 30 day shred for 90 days, but you’d have to make some alterations to it so your body doesnt plateau.  The thing with P90X is how they switch up the workouts and focus in 3 week increments so your body becomes “confused” and doesnt plateau.

Its very difficult and requires some time commitment, but I am loving it so far.

@Kelly…good insight. The 30 Day Shred DOES have three different workouts, so that probably helps a bit? I’m thinking about incorporating some pilates into the days when I don’t do the shred for some variety and flexibility.

today is day 4 for me (will start as soon as my breakfast settles) but yesterday i realized how much of a difference my body made after only 3 days! it’s crazy how your endurance quickly changes.

i’ve heard that you are supposed to do lev 1 for 10 days, lev 2 for 10 days, and lev 3 for 10 days. originally i was going to do lev 1 for a month, lev 2 for a month and lev 3 for a month but i think that will get too boring, too quickly. so we’ll see.

i’ve got p90x coming my way so i think once i’m done with this, i’ll switch to that. i’ve got 6 months until my wedding so i need to keep with some kind of training.

@Gemstone – even with 3 workouts, your body becomes used to them from muscle repetition and buildup that they become essentially ineffective (for lack of a better word.)  After the 30 days, switch the order of the workouts up, increase weight (if there are weights involved, I havent ever seen the Shred) or progress to mroe difficult pushups etc.  You could buy resistance bands to incorporate into exercises as well.  Also, adding pilates and yoga into the mix would be hugely beneficial.

@Jenna – youre going to LOVE it.  Im in shape, and I threw up on Day 1.  Trust me when I tell you that when your body says “ENOUGH!” listen to it lol.  I was like “eh, Ill push through” and then I was done.  It was ugly 🙂  Im amazed though, that after 7 days, my endurance is already better.  Oh…and the Yoga?  Its REALLY difficult.  Your arms hurt for DAYS after…you go back into chaturanga in between like EVERY pose and do pushups while in the plank.  I fear the yoga day coming again lol

Hi,

Can I ask a quick question about everyone’s approach to the 30 Day Shred?

I have 1 month until my first fitting and I have the 30 day shred. I’ve done it a few times just to see how it is. I started on level 2 as I was doing a lot of exercise already and really think its great. Good workout & only 20 minutes. Its great!

My question is I would like to do some running & Bikram Yoga as well to keep variety + cardio in the mix. My original plan was to do yoga/run in the morning and then to the shred after work. I’m finding though that I don’t have the energy to workout again and the thought of putting on workout clothes/showering again is dreadful. Does anyone have any good suggestions on how to break up the week and still incorporate all of these, while getting the benefit of the 30 day shred?

Thanks!!!
