On Friday I completed one of the more difficult things I've ever done. And I thought pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding were rough....Jillian Michaels made that all seem like a cake walk. I'm officially SHREDDED.
A lot of people have been asking my opinion on the 30 Day Shred, so here you have it!
PROS: -It's a super short, super intense workout. If you don't want to spend 2 hours at the gym, this pretty much packs it in for you. -Results. It actually works!! -You can do it in your underwear. (Ok, I never did, but I guess you could if you wanted?) -It works out pretty much every single muscle in your body at once. -There are different levels, and modified versions if you aren't as awesome as Jillian. CONS: -I was a little dissapointed that I didn't lose more weight. I still have 10lbs of lingering baby weight and was hoping this would help a ton, but I gained so much muscle it pretty much all evened out. -It's pretty tough on the knees. Be sure and really stretch before you workout. -You sweat a LOT. -Your 4 month old baby laughs at you. Sometimes that just hurts my feelings. -It's an everyday thing, so it's sometimes tough to squeeze a workout in if you're super busy. -For 20 minutes, you actually feel like you might die.
Before the 30 Day Shred, I could not do a push up, a sit up and could barely lift my baby. Now I'm proud to say I can do push ups, sit ups and I don't feel like I'm going to pass out just walking up stairs! I still have a long way to go to get back to my pre-baby body, but this has really helped me get so much closer. At 4 months post partum, I'm well on my way!
I highly recommend this workout! But if you start it, keep it up & don't quit!! Good luck!!
