I’m halfway through the Shred and wondering what I should do next. I don’t want to lose all of the things I’ve gained, and I’ve been enjoying the Shred, but I want something new, too! Here are some options I’ve seen:
Also by Jillian Michaels:
Ripped in 30
Making the Cut
Burn Fat, Boost Metabolism
No More Trouble Spots
Mix it up–I found this program here: http://www.3fatchicks.com/forum/20-somethings/209508-jillian-michaels-30-day-slim-down.html
X-Treme Timesaver Training
Power Circuit Training

Has anyone else at least tried any of these? (*bump*)

@Keltaena: I haven’t tried these things but I’m wondering, how is the shred working for you? Are you noticing good chances already? I’m interested in trying it.

I’ve done Burn Fat Boost Metabolism – I’m actually currently mixing it up with P90X, doing it on my P90 “cardio” days. And I love it. But personally, I’d alternate it with something else – it’s not good to work the same stuff every day. I hurt my ankle doing BFBM for like 5 days in a row this past winter ;/

I just started Ripped in 30 on Monday, I try and do it everyday. But it’s effing hard, and it’s longer than 20 min I think. Sure feels like it. But I like it! I’ve done NMTZ and I feel like dying after.

I’ve really enjoyed No More Trouble Zones – Longer than the shred (50 min) but no cardio intervals (but you are still huffing and puffing).
Recently I’ve been doing Ripped in 30 and I really enjoy it but it’s HARD. I usually rotate the 2nd and 3rd workout but I have to do easier versions of the cardio intervals. Jumping jacks in squat form after pounding the quads in the strength interval? No can do.

I just bought NMTZ and watched it last night (whilst sitting on the couch eating popcorn – ha!) and it looks pretty awesome. I’ve done about 2/3 of the 30 day shred so far and am looking to mix it up between the two dvds. I don’t like working the same muscle groups day after day as I feel as though my muscles get used to the workout much too quickly. I’ve liked shred but am hoping NMTZ will kick my toning regime up a notch.

Hey I made it to level 3 on the shred and now it seems so boring! I try and mix it up with the P90X Dvd’s which are much more intense and it hurts to lift your arms and walk a day or so after which I noticed I never felt that way after level 1 with Jillian. I’ve read lots of good things about NMTZ and want to try that out, let us know what you pick! 🙂

I can definitely tell a difference. I don’t think it’s just in my head, either, lol. I am getting stronger and I can see it in my arms for sure. It’s pretty awesome.
I’ve been curious about the P90X, but I don’t really feel like shelling out the cash. How much room do you need? I only have a very small space, which is why this video works for me.
I can see it getting boring. I was feeling a little bored myself, today. But, I’m heading a thread about it so I have to see it all the way through. I’m excited to try something new in another 15 days though! I’ll post what I pick.

I the link you provided they were talking about a new video that Jillian had out. It’s the Shred with 2 levels, but with a kettle ball!!!
I actually think you should do the slim down, but it looks like keep track of what day your on and what you should be doing is a little intense. But I would still do it.

Yeah. I am leaning toward that one. It seems like a good amount of variety and intensity–although I can hardly imagine doing two Shred levels in one day.

I was thinking about asking the same thing. I definitely don’t want to stop after the shred so I was wondering which dvd would be better to do next. I bought Ripped in 30 to start it after the 30 Day Shred dvd.

I’m doing Ripped in 30 right now, just moving to Level 2 today. I loved Shred, and this dvd is a little bit more challenging even on Level 1. I LOVE LOVE LOVE NMTZ, and I have done the slimdown challenge too with great results. BFBM still kicks my @$$. If you’re short on time, I’d say do Ri30, but if you have more time to kill, the slimdown is great.
