I'm on day 3 and feel amazing. So strong!

I entered 20 minutes of circuit training into my log and it calculated at about 230 calories burned.

i think it's a great dvd. my mom lost 10lbs from using it so far. i use it as morning cardio workout to get my day started. i use 10lb dumbells though so on level 3 i burn about 300cals. great 20min burn.

i used to have an account at jillianmichaels.com and the 30ds for level 1 is 500 calories burned ( that was for me at 218lbs) per 30 minutes.

I weigh 145 and burn 220 for level1 and the same for level2--- BUT, I "jump rope" in place while she is explaining all of the moves that I already know.

Get a lot lower when doing all the exercises that helps burn more and makes you push your body more

I just finished my daily dose of 30DS :) with my HRM it said that I burned a little over 300 cals on the first level. I am 5'6", 201 lbs and increased the intensity I do 30DS by getting lower and using larger weights (for me that is, I'm up to 5lb weights).

I'm not exactly sure how to calculate how many calories I'm burning with 30 day shred... I'm imaging somewhere between 180-200??? I put in myfitnesspal that its circuit training for 20 min and it said 221 calories?? I guess it's pretty similar, but wouldnt the level and how much you put into it make a difference?

I use the "circuit training, general" entry and it comes up with about 200 calories for the 20 minute workout...so this sounds about right based on what everyone else has indicated.

Does this apply to ALL three levels? I see people are saying 180 calories for 20 minutes is pretty accurate. I just did my first exercise on level one (and let me tell you, I didn't sweat but man I was so dizzy afterwards!) and I would imagine that each level would be more difficult. Wouldn't your burn more calories on the second level than you would the first and more on the third than you would the second?

I'm actually wondering the same thing....I just started level 2 tonight and it seems a lot higher intensity than level 1. Jillian also mentions during the workout that you're burning twice as many calories as level 1. Any thoughts?

If you want to find out how many calories you burn, compare it to the standard.. set up as a preportion
154 lbs your weight
______ = _________
503 calor ies x (how many calories)

cross multiply to get 154x= 503 *your weight
divide your weight answer by 154
that will be how many calories your burn in one hour
divide by 3 to find out how many calories you will burn in one 20 minute session



You have me CoNfUsEd by your math figuring. Explain in better detail?

I burn about 120 on level 1, and about 200 on level 2. I haven't bothered with level 3 as I began to find JM so annoying I gave up on it and factored in more running instead.

you need an HRM...since it can vary for us all I'm 5'6" and at 178. Level 1 first day was 175 cals burned the next day was about 150 cals.

I'm having the hardest time finding 30DS. Maybe it's because of the new year resolutions crowd. I did pick up her Ripped in 30 and Extreme Shed and Shred. Does anyone have any experience with either of these??? Just curious if you found one more effective than the other. Thanks.

I'm 226 lbs and figured out it would be roughly 230 cals burned for me.

It depends on how much you currently weigh and the intensity you work out. Are you doing the advanced moves with Natalie or the beginner moves? Do you stop and rest for a few seconds or give it all you have got from beginning to end?

I weigh 120.5 pounds, use #5 weights, and do a double workout each day. I am on level 2, day 4. I follow Natalie. My HRM says I burned 180 calories for level one (one workout) and just slightly higher for level 2.

Im confused because when you go to the exercise link and type in circuit training, general- it tells me 480 approx for calories burned. ok..lets do this..I weigh 255, and I am 5'11. What would it be for just level one for 30 day shred?


So am I right in my interpretation of this:

Current Weight 248

503 * 248 = 124744
124744/154 = 810.03
810.03/3 - 270

So I would burn 270 calories doing one 20 minute set program? Also, is this the 1st level or one of the advanced levels?

It is a DVD workout video by Jillian Micheals. You can get it at walmart for about 10 bucks I believe.

I love this 30 day shred! I toned up last year just doing it for the 30 days. Like someone said earlier, weight loss was not noticable but I looked great and dropped almost 4 dress sizes just by eating a 1440 calorie diet and doing this workout everyday. However, I have since let life take over and stopped doing everything. I gained my weight back (I wasn't eating healthy either.) Thanks for the posts because I'm ready to start doing what I know works again! As for the diet pills. I understand your pain. At one point in my life I became dependant on them thinking that if I stopped that I would gain the weight back. Believe it or not they have addicting side effects. When I did not know where else to turn I joined a local 12 step group and it has significantly changed my life around. When you've had enough and you cant get off of the pills on your own, there is hope. Your not alone. Good luck to you and everyone on your "active participation in a life style change!"

ahh this is so encouraging to hear! I just started and I eat about 1300 calories and was worried that this workout wasn't enough by itself

It's Jillian Michaels from the Biggest Loser. She is big on circuit/interval training. 30 day shred has 3 levels and follows 3 min strength/2 min cardio/ 1 min abs for 3 circuits per level. It's only 24 minutes which is what appeals to me. I am a mom of 3 and do not have time to work out for over an hour. I LOVE it and it's the one thing I have done that I notice big results in my arms. If you are in shape already she had Get ripped in 30...it's 4 circuits and a little more intense work out, but I liked it too. I plan on buying her body revolution....I highly recommend her workouts.
