Video Workout: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

You have all seen her on the famous NBC The Biggest Loser show as one of the personal trainers. She is known as one of the toughest video workout trainers that is currently out there. You are about to read a quick review of the video.

The video is broken down into three different levels (1/2/3) which works great for beginners, intermediate, and advanced. For me I started at level 1, and I suggest most first timers do as well. Before you pop your new DVD into your player, make sure you have purchased a Yoga type mat and 2 lightweight dumbells (2.5lbs to 10lbs). Now before you watch the video make sure you have a towel (for sweat) and a bottle of water (to keep you dehydrated). Now it is time to start the video.

The most annoying part of the video is Jillian gives about a one minute speech everytime you turn it on, and you can't fast forward it. From there you pick your level. Her workout is broken down to Strength/Cardio/Abs with a format of 3 minutes of strength/2 minutes of Cardio/and 1 minute of Abs. From there you will do what she calls 3 circuits/or 3 sets. Once she has kicked your butt for a total of 18 minutes without any rest between the sets she gives you a minute or so to cool down, and then throws you out the door wanting more!

I give this video 4 dumbells out of 5 Price $10.00
