I found this link on about how many calories the 30 Day Shred burns in 20 minutes:

Basically, it says if you're 150lbs, you burn 167 in 20 mins. So, adjust for your weight and just enter it into your exercise manually until MFP adds it.

Good luck and feel free to add me! I'm on Day 4 of Level 1.

ha, I love replying to my own post. I figured out that this means you burn 1.11 calories for every pound you weigh. So, just multiply your weight times 1.11 and that's how many cals you burn during 30 Day Shred.

Hi Vevvie, Thanks for this :) ive looked at 30 day shred but wasnt sure if i might be a bit too 'unfit' to start it as all the reviews say how intense it is. How are you finding it?

Hi! I am on day 4 of 30 day fit. It isn't really that awful. The first day you swear at Jillian the whole time but after the 2nd day was done I find it fun. I don't feel its intense and I am really out of shape also with zero flexibility!!! Good Luck!!!

Kaymarie - It's hard, but it's such a great total-body workout! I've been doing it every other day instead of every day because that's the only way my husband can do it with me. That's the only exercise I've been doing besides some walking and I lost 5 inches in one week.

It's tough, but anyone can do tough for a mere 20 minutes. I burn 296 cals during this time and so it's really worth it to me.

You can do it at your own pace like me or even every 2nd'll see the same results, just a bit slower. Feel free to add me if you want support and motivation!

Good luck.

PS - I forgot to mention that it's very easy to modify the exercises to your own level. You can do low impact instead of high during the cardio and if the weights get to be too much, set them down for a few reps and do the lifting without a weight.

I'm going to attempt at starting this evening. Everyone, feel free to add me. I'd love to see everyone's progress throughout this!

I find this to be an my case, at least. I use a HRM while doing 30DS, and I burn between 185 and 200 calories every session. I'm 5'1'' and 128.6 lbs.

I am revisiting this DVD after a year... it is just as tough as I remember it! lol.
Started D1L1 yesterday. I wore my HRM and it said I burned 172 cals. I am 5'3" and 143 lbs.

I have completed Day 2 & my thighs are really feeling it!
I exercise 3-4 times a week areobically and still thought the DVD Level 1 quite hard! I will keep at it even if the cal burn isnt as great as I was hoping it was laugh

Just did Level 1, and my HRM shows that I burned 262 calories. I used 5lb weights, except for 1 exercise I used 3lb. I am 5'11" 142lb.

I just finished day 1... It wasn't as hard as I expected it to be! and trust me, I'm not a fit person! TOMORROW I'll do twice the speed and twice the effort!

I burned 262 calories on day 1 of level 1 according to my HRM. I'm 5' 3" and 190 lbs, and used 1.5 lb hand weights. In case that helps anyone!

Wearing my hr monitor I burn between 280 and 355 depending on my intensity. I just started to monitor my heart rate and Im on D5L3 so that my have something to do with it.

Oddly, I've been doing the JM Fastfit Kickbox workout fairly regularly without difficulty and just did the 30 day shred for the first time in a long time and am about to die! O_o The fact I have a cold may have something to do with it maybe? Excuses, excuses.... Time to mix up my workouts so I'll stick with this one for a while! Thanks for the calorie burn info. Feel free to add me! I'm done with school so should be able to "actively" participate again! :)

I've just started 30 Day Shred again and I have day one down!! I curse Jillian the entire time but it's well worth it. I did 30 Day Shred religiously back in 2009 for 6 months and I saw more results with that 20 minute workout than I have ever seen with any exercise DVD that I have tried.

does that apply to all levels/days?smile
January 28, 2013 11:57 AM
I would imagain the harder the level the more cals you burn. And it seems the 1.1 cals for every lb you are is on the low side, but hey better under than over! And perhaps that equation would differ for someone who weighs more. Anyway its the best answer I've heard for ppl without HRMs
January 28, 2013 12:15 PM
I am 5'4" and about 140 pounds. My HRM gives me 233 calories for level one, using 4 pound weights. I completed day 4 this morning. I find the strength moves to be challenging, but not impossible. The ab work is very easy for this sort of thing. The cardio, however, showed me just how out of shape I am! Whew! Oh, well - stronger every day!

Edit: Posted on wrong thread. But thanks for the input on calories here!

My HRM says I burned 247 calories doing 30DS today, but going by this formula I should have burned 375.18 calories. I guess that just proves I didn't work as hard as I should have. I'll try harder tomorrow and see what it comes out to. Thanks for this!

That sounds about right.

is it me or am I missing something - I have been doing 30 day Shred using my HRM an it takes 27 minutes total for the level 1 routine. Why is everyone else saying 20 minutes?? grumble
April 7, 2013 10:17 AM
It's 3 x 6 minute 'circuits' so should only take you 20 mins to complete. Unless, like me, you go in for round 2 and do it again straight afterwards, in which case you're in for about 45 minutes of pure pain.

I add 5 seconds between each interval as 'transition time'.

If it's taking you 27 minutes, are you doing a fourth circuit?!

Nope, it's true. The first minute is introductions followed by 3 minutes of warm-up and there's a 3 minute cool-down period and some talking after so the whole level 1 runs about 28 minutes.
