Good luck! I started it but an old injury got the best of me about halfway through. It's totally worth it! It'll kick your butt but you'll notice yourself getting stronger and it feels so great.

I used this chart to help me keep track of my progress:

Crossing off each day in big red sharpie felt so great!!

Well done! I have just completed Day 1 of Level 1 too. I presume you have to do it every day for 30 days even if you do other exercise?? explode

Just did my second day! It definitely wasn't any easier! I plan on doing it every day, plus some extra cardio about 3x a week. Love Jillian though, she's an excellent instructor! I like her better than the bodyrock.tv people.

Also, if you have a BluRay player with wifi, you can watch the videos on YouTube for free and still have them on your TV!! :)

Good luck!

Stick with it! You will be amazed at how much stronger you are on day 5. I just started level 2. You got this!!!

On day 5 here and not sore anymore like I was the first 3 days. I can do the entire workout now except for the 30 full push-ups. Have to do those from the knee or I run out of gas

I did day 2 today and managed not to collapse halfway through the bicycle crunches like yesterday - woohoo. Also really feeling it in pectorals and thighs (taking stairs becomes interesting!). I do think though that you need to re-do the cool down stretches properly once the routine's over as she goes through them far too quickly to have much effect! Now my challenge is getting up early and doing it before work for the next 5 days *gulp*.

I've just completed day 3. It felt slightly easier today but my legs are aching, especially doing the lunges!! I can't do full push ups so do them on my knees and they're still hurting. I plan to do it everyday.

I completed the entire 30 day shred last year before vacation. Without paying close attention to my diet, I still lost a lot of inches around my waist and I could tell a big difference in the tone in my arms and legs. Halfway through the program I started struggling with my knees some (old basketball injury) and I had to take a couple of days off, but once I continued the program I was fine.

I have lost 60 lbs. (pregnancy) since last May and I am now into week 2 of her ripped in 30. I love it so far, it is much more intense that 30 day shred and I am also following a strict diet this time, so I hope to see significant results in the end.

Just did day 7 of routine 1. The first 3 days were really rough and I would limp into work every morning but now I can make it through all the exercises. Im getting nervous for routine 2 and what that has in store for my body! Good luck to everybody doing it! Keep it up even when it gets really hard...you can do it :)
January 20, 2013 6:42 PM
I will be starting the 30 day shred sometime
this week. I really hope I stick to it.

i have to be to work in less than an hour, but you're all inspiring me to start up (again) tomorrow! i started about 2 weeks ago, was soooo sore the next day that i was limping and had trouble even going from standing to sitting haha. but it's nice to know the pain goes away around day 3!!

I did day 5 of level 1 today. I am pretty amazed at how I have improved in such a short amount of time. Woo hoo! Actually looking forward to the next 5 days of level 1, which I didn't expect at all on day 1! Lol. I may have to peek at level 2 soon to see what's coming next. :)

I'm on level 3 now of 30 day shred and I love the changes I've seen already! I was trying to figure out what to do after I'm done the 30 day shred, and ripped in 30 was one of the things I was looking at. Glad to hear it's more intense. Be sure to post your results from this program :)

i did day 1 level 1, I didn't think it was that bad because it was only 20 min. I am not sure I will do this every day. I have other workouts I have been doing and I like to alternate workouts wink

I think you will get really bored with this. If you want to to each level for 30 days I would do 3 cycles of it, increasing your weight each time. A lot of people do it for 30 days w/o breaks, but I was able to go harder and stronger doing it only 5-6 days per week. On my off days I would take an "active rest" day doing some sort of moderate cardio.
January 20, 2013 7:15 PM
I'm on day 7 of level 1. Can't wait to see the results. I already increased the weights. I'll stick with the program and just increase the weights if it gets too easy happy
