I have all 3 of Jillian’s DVDs.  I love the Shred and think that No More Trouble Zones is like the Shred but longer and a bit harder.  There is more mat work and it gets to be tough at the end – the planks in the last 3 circuits and the worst! 

Since started Jillian’s DVDs I’ve gone down 2 pant sizes!  About a week and a half ago I read Eat to Live after you blogged about it and have lost 8 lbs since starting the plan.  If I keep up with Jillian and eating to live I will be in the best shape of my life for my wedding!

BFBM is a killer!  I’m glad I’m not the only one that struggles with that one.  I posted about this before, but my quads, hamstrings, and butt were KILLING me for a full 3 days after I did that workout.  I will say it gets easier.  The other thing that helps is doing the modifications she describes.  The first time I did it, I was definitely not getting enough oxygen to the head and missed all of those!

Ha I’m really glad you posted this, dorsay! I picked up BFBM a little while ago and I could not make it through the whole thing either! Gosh it’s so exhausting ๐Ÿ™

A lot of Jillian’s workouts are available on Comcast OnDemand. I actually own the Shred but levels one and two are there and so is the BFBM – two versions, a longer and shorter one….though I’m afraid to try the BFBM ones!

Bridebella – I use the Jillian’s OnDemand workouts too! I "Shredded" today, and then I saw the BFBM workout on the screen and remember Miss D’Orsay talking about it. I went to try it but quit after 5 minutes (I thought it would only be 20 mins. long, like the shredding videos, and I would be able to do both). Now that I know it’s up there, I’m excited to try BFBM next time!

@ jampietro– is the "Eat to Live" the book by Joel Furman?  Sounds really interesting but wanted to make sure I was looking at the right thing…

Good to know these are on ‘OnDemand’ – I’ll definitely have to give it a try!

Don’t know about her new stuff, but I caved and bought the 30 day shred!  I can’t wait for it to come in!

I’ve got No More Trouble Zones. I watched it through before I tried it and thought, eh, that doesn’t look too bad. Then the next day I actually tried it …

Well, I got through 4 of the 7 circuits (cheating on the some of the ab exercises, at that) before collapsing into a gibbering heap. I can get through the whole thing now, more or less, but it hasn’t gotten much easier. As someone else mentioned, that plank circuit is the worst! Anyway, the woman is definitely committed to kicking your butt.
