@specialklove:I agree!  Well, maybe not totally, but there’s another Ripped in 30 thread going around here… lots of us are doing it!  Keep up the good work!

@SpecialKLove – awesome! I love Ripped in 30 (except Level 3, that level can burn in hell). I did it on weekdays only for four weeks, 5 days at each level, and no other workouts until week 4, where I added in 20 minutes each morning on the treadmill. I lost 5.2lbs and over 13″ overall! 2.75″ of which was off my waist! LOVE Jillian!

@specialklove – awesome! Yeah, the added cardio probably will help too, since that’s what my next target area is – getting rid of my belly pudge! I didn’t follow the diet plan exclusively, but worked on eating 5-6 small meals per day that were balanced to keep my metabolism revving!

even just the 30 day shred melts fat. I get bored though, and annoyed with her voice lol

Haha, yeah, I like that the Shred allows you to “turn off” her instruction!

I suck at diets so I’m loving her work out. I’m only on level 1 still though …so we’ll see how much I love her after I get to level 3. But so far, I’m loving it!

I also did p90x and this is MUCH better!

I did P90X and got SO BORED about 30 days in (which prompted me quitting, boo)…

How are these videos set up? Are they like the P90X ones where you work different muscles every day or are they more like The 30 Day Shred where you change levels but get a total body workout every day?

And how long are the videos? I’d really like to give something new a try. Thanks in advance!

Is this different from the 30 Day Shred (which I’m suppose to start tonight. Ugh)

Yes, they are different! That is about all I know about it….

I really liked the Shred. It kicked my butt (as a whole it was harder on me than P90X because it combines the cardio and weight lifting) but if you stick with it it’s great!!! And I love that it’s only 30 minutes long. I enjoy working out, but when you factor in the time it takes to mentally prepare, get ready, make sure you’ve eaten, and then shower/clean up after, an hour workout ends up taking me about two and a half hours. And I don’t have that kind of time. When I know it will only take 30 minutes I normally can find the motivation and get it done.

Ripped in 30 follows the same principles as 30 Day Shred, where it’s the 3-2-1 system… but the moves/intervals are increasingly difficult, and much harder than Shred in my opinion… the nice thing is that she doesn’t repeat the moves in the different levels, so it’s easier to stay focused.

I have always been curious about P90X, but could never commit A) to the cost of the program or B) to doing 60+ minutes per day! I just bought Supreme 90 Day, which came in the mail today, it follows a similar concept to p90X in terms of muscle confusion, but the dvds are all around 30-40 minutes. I’m thinking of starting it in October to carry me through the holidays. It got good reviews on Amazon, and for only $20, I figured it was worth a shot.

I’ve done most, if not all, of Jillian’s DVDs so if anyone has any questions about them, I’m happy to answer! 🙂

P90X really just bored me… I don’t know if it was the length of the video or the fact that I was repeating the same videos over and over again, but either way, I got bored and and quit. I also wasn’t noticing enough of a change to keep me motivated. After 30 days I had lost zero weight and while  my stomach felt tighter, I swear my legs were getting enormous making it HARDER to fit in clothes I alreay own. My guy on the other hand dropped weight and started develping a six pack. I honestly think that P90X was created more with a man’s body in mind… and I never used to believe that there was really a big difference in the way that men and women should workout, but after doing P90X and pilates I’m pretty convinced that there is a difference (maybe it’s just a difference in all people in general, who knows).

I really liked the shred was great because it combined the cardio in with the weight lifting so it a)Felt harder than P90X and b)Actually made me lose inches. Plus, you can’t beat 30 mintues.

So maybe I should do the shred again and THEN pick up ripped in 30 after that? Seems like I need to get back in fighting shape before I try and do ripped in 30…

For anyone who is interested, I just posted my blog in the September blogs thread, and I’ve got before/after photos from Ripped in 30 there. I was really surprised by the difference just 5 days a week for 4 weeks made!

@MissTattoo – yes, it’s a different DVD than 30 Day Shred – it has 4 levels, all around 30 minutes, and it’s a bit harder (in my opinion) than the Shred. I love both DVD’s, but noticed a huge difference after Ri30 when I had been plateauing with the Shred.
