Hi edb,

I wondered the same thing myself before I tried the DVD.  However, I don’t think the weightlifting is really weightlifting– it seems to be more about high intensity calorie burn than about building muscle.  Real weight training is only successful if you work to muscle failure, whereas the shred just wants you to keep moving to keep burning calories.  I wouldn’t worry about it.  Unless, of course, you are doing real weight training in addition to the shred, in which case I’d do a split routine (upper body one day, lower body another) and I’d avoid doing the lower body strength moves on your lower body day off, etc. 

Good luck!

I LOVE Jillian Michaels! I listen to her radio show/podcasts (http://www.kfi640.com/pages/podcasting/). She mentioned this exact question not too long ago. Her program is designed to be done everyday using 3-5 lb weights which would not fatigue the muscle as much as heavier weight lifting. Hope this helps!
