@HuskerGirl:  Is it a soreness type of pain?  Since it’s giving you issues during activities such as jumping, it sounds like you may have stressed a muscle.  Ice your legs, and try a warm bubble bath.  Do you stretch a lot before your workouts? 

I’d really suggest putting your workouts on hold for now to allow your body to heal.  If things aren’t better within a few days of resting, icing, and warm baths, I’d go to your doctor.

it sounds like shin splints, which I also got when I started 30 day shred. the only way to make them go away is to rest them (and in the long term, strengthen those muscles – try flexing your foot back and forth when you’re sitting down). I kept going with 30 day shred but skipped anything too bouncy – I’d do the shadow boxing thing instead or just anything I could think of that drives up your heart rate without putting too much pressure on your feet. even just do windmills with your arms as fast as you can! just as long as you keep moving to satisfy those two minutes of cardio.

otherwise, another bee recommend Ripped in 30 to me which uses a similar format but there is way less jumping and leaping around. I just started it this week and it’s much kinder on the shins, your thighs on the other hand will BURN!

I’ve had pain in that exact spot after trying to run (I tried that “Couch to 5K” program.. bad idea for me, lol)

I was never properly diagnosed by a doctor or anything, but the only thing that made them feel better was an ice pack, straight on the skin. Not wrapped in a towel or anything. Just ice on skin. And then after that, I rubbed/massaged them.

I’d say just try and pace yourself, and take a day off and rest if you need to.

Just do different cardio when she makes you jump – like boxing. I get chronic shin splits and every once in a while it will act up and I just modify the cardio to exclude jumping or else I do the boxing moves in the videos in place.

Ouch. I’m a big fan of rest between workouts. I’m doing weekday shred and then taking the weekend off. By the time I get to friday i feel like I need the rest. Then monday im back to full strength again to give it all. Im in my third week, on day 4 of level 2 today. Just wondering when people started to see results. I’ve gained weight (assuming it must be muscle as I havent been overeating too much) but feel a bit trimmer. No noticable difference in inches though. 🙁

@HuskerGirl:  Sounds like shin splints. I had shin splints in the same spot. Unfortunately, the best way to cure them is rest. New shoes can help too. I got new sneakers with more support and it helped my shin splints a lot. 

I’m doing the 30DS right now too 🙂 I’m on Level 2 Day 4, so 14 days in! I’m starting to really hate Jillian lol but I started seeing results this week, which is great motivation to keep going. Congrats on getting motivated to make a change!

@LilLis:  I’m on Level 2 Day 4 also! Yay shred twins. I started seeing results this week – nothing major, but I can tell my stomach is more toned and my arms are a little more toned. Everyone is different with their results though, so if you aren’t seeing anything yet I’m sure you will if you stick to it. I haven’t weighted myself because I read most people gain some weight from the shred because you add so much muscle. I’m trying to gage it on the fit of my jeans, and I think they feel a little bit looser. I also have taken a few rest days. I’ve done three rest days since I started and plan on resting this Sunday. It’s A LOT to do 30 days straight! Good luck with the shred!!
