30 day shred is the most intense short workout I have found on a DVD. I sweat much more in that 25 minutes than with an hour of the Firm, which is pretty hard. YOu can get good results with 30 day shred as your main form of exercise.

I have heard the results to the 30 Day Shred are amazing. If you're doing it with a diet plan, I would think you should get results. I did it myself, but without a diet plan, for a whole month. I got toned, but I didn't lose a pound.

But like I said, just make sure you have a diet plan, and your result should be different.

I just started it last week. I usually have to do it every other day because I am SO SORE by the next morning. Ha. But that has gone down a lot just by Day 4 of Session 1. It definitely gets you moving, sweating, and the muscles burning.

I have done the phase1 workout twice now. It took me almost a week to recover after the first time (Wow am I out of shape!) and about 2 days to recover the second time. I am planning to do it again tonight. It's going to take me 3+ months to do 30 workouts, but that's ok with me. I definately think it is an intense workout. I agree it is more intense in just 30 minutes than an hour of other workouts. If I pass this, I think I'll be ready to try P90X with my hubby. That one scared the crap out of me! LOL

Overall, you get a good workout in a short amount of time, which is what I'm looking for. It's hard for me to find time to do any more than that. Good luck!

I did Day 1 yesterday. It was really tough! This morning, my upper body is really sore but my lower body and my abs are not at all. Which is weird as I don't identify with being strong and also, it was burning pretty good yesterday during! I'll pay extra attention to my form today and see if that makes a difference. I'd hate to be cheating myself by not doing the moves properly!

I've thought about it too, but I'm worried it's too much for me since I'm way out of shape & much heavier than the rest of you, from the looks of it. I'd be interested to know if anyone closer to my weight has tried it, & if so, how'd it go?

k, they have modified workouts during the 20 minutes and I don't think it would be a problem for anyone to do. She said that it's ok to take a 5 second rest if you're feeling really bad during and it won't compromise your results. Perhaps you could modify it further by starting out with very light hand weights or none at all? I did it with 3 pound weights. I think I'm probably the least motivated person in the world and it was doable for me. The worst part is the lunges but everyone effing hate lunges!! Razz Plus, if you did feel overwhelmed, you could do as much as you felt able, rest a day, try again, and repeat until you were ready. No matter how much you do, it's still going to make you sweat. I can tell by what I know about you so far that you'd give it your all!

I started the 30day shred but for my size and being that out of shape I switched to "Walk away the pounds" by Leslie Sansone. It is much easier on you and I really feel it by the of the "walk".

I tried this not too long ago and it didn't go all that well for me. I was eating healthy and in very sensible portions but not counting calories while I did, so maybe that was it. Like CCM93 I didn't lose a single lb while on that program. I stopped about three weeks in (doing it every day and switched to lvl2 after the first 5 days), but I did notice I was having an easier time running while I was doing all those strength exercises. I personally prefer doing cardio to weight training for weight loss.

Agree with Bump. If you're over 300lbs for men or 200 lbs for women, you should start with walking and low impact aerobics, like swimming or something. The weight stress on your skeleto-muscular frame might cause you to injure yourself. If you have other medical conditions, you should consult your physician first.

Yeah, I definitely have to agree with Bump as well. The more intense things are NOT the way to start. Also, if you ARE bigger, you're going to burn a hell of a lot more calories walking (even if you're slow) than someone who's like 150 lbs since you're lugging around more weight.

Thanks so much for the feedback y'all...I kind of had a feeling that might not be right for me at this point but was hoping to hear from someone who's tried it. I knew I could count on you guys! For now I'm using my recumbent bike & going for walks, so I can increase the intensity &/or length of time if it gets to be where it's not challenging enough. Smile

I disagree with you guys but it's always best to err on the side of caution.

Well Erin, Jillian's books & videos are always catching my eye when I see them, so a goal of mine is going to be to graduate from the bike & walking to trying one of the videos! If I can build up some stamina (& confidence!) with my current workouts then I don't think it's too far in the future. Smile

At 370lbs I was able to do some pretty intense, high impact workouts for an hour at a time at the very least. But that's just me. Aside from a knee injury what flares up occassionally w/ high impact workouts, I didn't/don't have any other major issues. If you're looking for something intense & you don't have physical issues/injuries that you have to take into consideration, try it out. You won't know what you're capable of until you try. If you can't do it, then go w/ something less intense & work your way towards it. Like Erin said, even if you do little bits at a time or modify away, you'll still be getting in a good workout. Very Happy

Appreciate that Shay! Knowing me, next time I see it at Walmart or Target or whatever I'll probably pick it up & let it sit on the shelf for a bit. Then one day when nobody's home I'll give it a go! I am sure all of you here will be the only ones I am brave enough to tell about it, lol!

Thanks Crstlgls for recommending the Lactase Enzyme tablets, I still have to give it a go. Nice to know that something like that exists, feels like a simple way to work with the elimination process.
