Today’s segment will be short but powerful- just like Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred!
Jillian Michaels is a renowned trainer with many fitness DVDs to her credit. Her most basic workout is the 30 Day Shred which consists of just a 20 minute workout combining strength training, cardio and abs. There are 3 Levels to this workout with increasing level of difficulty, you start out with Level 1 for 10 days, move on to level 2 for the next 10 days and end the program with 10 days of Level 3.
I am only on Day 5 of the Level 1 but I’m beginning to feel light and toned already! I was quite sore after the first 2-3 days of the workout but that will go away as you progress into the workout. Its a very intensive 20 minutes but it gets the heart rate up and the body sweating and you feel so tired after it as if you’ve had an hour worth of workout at the Gym! She doesn’t allow more than 5 seconds of rest in between but its just 20 minutes, you can do it if you just.stick.with.it!
Its a home workout and you might need weights for some of the moves but I’m doing the strength training exercises without the weights right now and it feels difficult even without them! Level 1 is available HERE on Youtube. I highly recommended this workout to everyone!

[note color=”#FFE4C4″]Hope you had a good week. I was mostly consistent with my diet except for Dusshera when I ate way too many salted nuts (kaju/macademia) but stayed away from sweets! I was beginning to get a little bored with my workout but with Jillian’s 30 Day Shred, I look forward to it each day. Variety is very important so keep changing your workout routine every few days. A walk everyday or the same cycling on the machine everyday will not only bore you eventually but also make your body resistant to that workout and it will stop responding. You need to keep pushing your limits further if you want results!
