Today was day three of week two! I'm loving that it is getting easier everyday! I killed the plank jacks today! Ab work is still tough, but I blame that on my csection, I don't push as hard because it still kind of hurts. Anyone else have that problem?


week 2 is still hard for me! i am on day 6.. but maybe today was extra hard because i pushed myself harder than i normally do. i've decided that i'm going to stay on level 2 until i master it!... or get bored with it... hahaha but i'm loving the results i'm getting for it... so GAME ON!



Keep up the good work! It's still tough for me, but I did better today then I did Monday lol. I'm gonna goto level three next week even if I don't have it completey mastered. Mainly because I get bored and I'm ready for the next level. And at the end of it I like to go back and do all the levels again to see how much I improved. I did that with the shred. When my 10 days were up for level two, I still struggled but went ahead to level three. And when I finished those 10 days, I did level one and two again and I was successful. But I did all modified for the shred. I'm not trying to do any modifications for this one....except those stupid ass pushups with the knee things! I forgot what they were called

nikkisekstal - I wish I had your determination! I don't think I could ever do 30DS right into Ripped. You are a force!

jsp1233 - I'm at the same place as you but with Ripped! Every day I just strive to do a LITTLE more and then every day becomes a big accomplishment. Keep it up!

ouryear002 - like I said to nikki - I'm SO impressed by you all that do one program right after another!

Sden1231 - Plank jacks are my nemisis. Will have to savor the lack of them in week one and then push through it in week two lol. I'm also with you on the moving on even if it's not all mastered. When I finish the program I can do it again but with all the hard modifications and feel all proud :-)

amyannealderete - Think of how awesome it'll feel when you finish if you go back to week two and remember how hard it was for you! That'll be awesome!




So day two and I tried some of the harder modifications when I could and the HRM reflected that - burned 350 today. Maybe I can bump it up another 10 or so tomorrow by really pushing myself on those skaters! Was so sore during the day today but I worked through it and I'm happy I did because I feel a little better after the workout. I was walking the kid I nanny for and pushing his stroller and I could feel every single abdominal muscle I had... it was intense!

Keep it up everyone and see you tomorrow!

Was able to do the renegade rows today!! Whoo Hoo!

How does everyone work in days off? I have been going steady since I started I just finished L2 D2, and was wondering when people do their rest days? In between the levels? mid-week? I have been trying to do 30 days in a row... but yesterday my body was TIRED! Today was a lot better...
March 30, 2011 6:21 PM
Does anyone else notice that their weight loss rate has slowed down since starting the program? I am hoping I am building more muscle... ??

i started week four on tuesday, & idk why, but it seems to go by so quickly... before i know it, we're finishing circuit 3!! my least favorite exercise this week is the cardio move where ur in plank & you jump from side- to center- to other side...

I did the renegade rows today on my toes instead of my knees! I was so proud of myself! My hubby was like, that doesn't look hard, and he tried it. Needless to say he was shaking, lol. He didn't say anything after that. I've been holding a plank position everynight before I goto bed. Each day I'm trying to add on 10 seconds. I'm up to 1 min 30 secs. I am determined to do all those stupid plank moves!
March 31, 2011 9:02 AM
Has anyone done Insanity that is doing Ripped right now?? Some of the moves that I have seen on the clips are similar to a few of Insanity. Just want to know if it's easier/harder or just to know what's coming my way lol!
March 31, 2011 9:02 AM
I am doing this! I won it on one of Jillian's twitter contests and today I do Day 3 Week 1. Does the soreness ever get better? I have to say that I can already see results though. While I am still in no means bikini ready, (haha!) I am much firmer everywhere and a little less jiggly :D I can get through almost all of it, but can't do the side thing where I'm supposed to lift my body up on the side (abwork). I sub in crunches because otherwise it just HURTS. I must be a wuss. I've also started to mute her and crank up Pandora, lol.
March 31, 2011 11:03 AM
Just completed D1L1 happy I did my last day of 30DS yesterday and this is the perfect transition....I could get through almost all the moves, I did the modified ab move at the end though, thats a rough one for me laugh Loving it!

Have a rockin day! laugh

I'm so excited about Ripped in 30 and from what you're all saying, it's going to be everything I hoped for. I think I'll go get it today! I did the 30 day shred (but it took me about 60 days bc it was post pregnancy lol) Then I started doing a rotation of the shred, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism, and No More Trouble Zones and boy has Jillian whipped my butt into shape. I haven't taken official after pictures but I just thought I'd share this...
Before starting Jillian's workouts, I had thunder thighs and noodle arms. My legs are still a work in progress but check out these guns...totally compliments of Jillian in case anyone needs further inspiration!

Level 4 does seems to go by fast! I agree with you too about that plank move where you jump side to side. I like most of the plank moves now, just not this one!

Did L1D1 today! After 30 day shred, that didn't seem too bad. Of course, we'll see how I feel tomorrow!

Hello lovely ripped people!

jondy - looks like we're at about the same place in the program. I remember the plank cardio from 30DS and it was my NEMESIS so we'll have to help each other through it!

Picky_nikki - It depends which program you're doing - for 30 DS I did it between levels, for Ripped I'm resting every Sunday. I like every Sunday better, it gives my body some extra time to recover. And it needs it! Also, I remember getting really frustrated as my weight plateaued when I was doing 30DS but the week after I finished I dropped like three pounds in a week. It definitely has to do with muscle so I'd recommend tracking your measurements and taking progress pics throughout. It is way more uplifting :-)

Coastalmama01- I just did week 1 day 4 and I'm FINALLY less sore (thought not completely). I think we just have to get used to the idea that the next 30 days are going to be sore ones :-) And I agree, the side planks SUCK

nikkisekstal - You are a ROCKSTAR!

dixiejo1987- You look amazing! And could that little man be any more adorable? I don't think so!



So my HRM keeps saying I burn more calories every time I do the workout! Yesterday was 366 and today was 372. I think it's because I am attempting more of the harder versions of the moves every day. It makes me happy to see some tangible proof of my hard work every day though!

Another thing: I've been trying to compile the BEST music for the workout and my playlist is still a work in progress but I have some gems that even had me smiling in the side plank section. Here's my playlist right now (I love 80s rock and 90s pop as you'll see) and if you have any suggestions, I'd LOVE them!

The Call - Backstreet Boys

Fight for your right - Beastie Boys

Livin' on a prayer - Bon Jovi

Intergalactic - Beastie Boys

Fat Bottomed Girls - Queen

Space Jam - Quad City DJs

Get Over it - OK Go

Girlfriend - Avril Lavigne

That's Not My Name - Ting Tings

Ain't Nothing Wrong - Robert Randolph and the Family Band


That's all for now! Post songs you like to workout to! I'll try anything once!

Side planks, I knew there was a better name for them! lol. How much calories should I put that this burns, anyone know? I'm 5'5 and 153 lbs. I put in 20 minutes and 200 calories, but I'm just guessing. I don't have the money for a HRM right now thought it is definitely on my wish list!
April 2, 2011 1:17 PM
slm33- I just put on the satellite radio on 20 on 20 when I do it... I find I need the music to push me through! I usually do the level once or pre-watch it so I know the transitions first. Thanks for the music suggestions.... one day I should make a playlist... I'm just too lazy :P

LMAO!! Yes indeed!

Well Ladies, I decided to get a little crazy today and switched it up a bit. Didn't do Ripped, but did Jackie Warner's Power Circuit Training, then finished with JM Banish Fat. Oh yeah, THAT was a workout!!

Keep up the great work Ladies!!!

i absolutely HATE level 3!! i hated level 2 when i started it too but when i got towards the end it started to grow on me... i hope this happens with level 3 but at this point i'm kinda doubting it...

This is all making me a little nervous to move on! :) I just finished week 1 and thought I would do it for this week again. Although I'm debating that decision since my calorie burn is decreasing or staying the same every morning. Thoughts?

Have any of you committed to doing this in April? I started April 1st with the goal of doing all 30 days before the end of the month...hoping that will happen though, as it took me about 35 to finish 30DS.

Is anyone following the meal plan?

ok so i really need to catch up on this thread but let me just say.....

i'm officially part of the Ripped in 30 bunch! Finally did day 1 and I gotta say I LOVE IT! - was pouring in sweat 6mins into it. And the best part is I did all the advance moves not the beginners :) OH YEAHHHHHH

only problem is i slowed down at the crunches cuz i literally heard my knees doing exactly that - CRUNCHING!
didn't hurt but it sure didnt sound good. anyone experience this? any advice?

Ok I've been sick and haven't been able to do this for the past couple days. I'm gonna attempt tomorrow. Thinking about doing week two over again since I missed 4 days from it. I was supposed to start week three on Sunday

I just found this thread!! I'm starting Level 4 of Ripped in 30 tomorrow. I've done each level 6 days (I take Fridays off to clean my house :P). I haven't lost much weight, but I have lost inches. My knees are killing me, so after I'm done my week of Level 4 I'm taking a break from Jillian. She does produce amazing results, but my knees aren't thanking me right now. I've taken a picture of my abs before, and then each week after. I can't wait to compare my before picture with my after one next week.
