If you're cramping try adding more potassium to your diet, just need a small boost. Try one banana a day for a week and see if they get any better or go away completely. Sounds stupid, but try it.

I do eat bananas but dont mind eat more, it has got a bit better but had to change to lighter weights for some it

I've been doing it for 6 days straight, today is my 7th. I got really achey the first few days but I pushed through. So far I've lost 4.5 pounds and two inches around my waist. No too shabby for a week, eh?

I have the DVD at home and have yet to try it. I may just have to do so.

I am starting it today. Fortunatly in lvl one there isnt much that you have to do on your hands. I had surgery a year ago next month and occasionally still have issues with that hand.

Yeah definite knee pain in the beginning, but if you work through it by day 6 u probably wont feel it as much.

GOOD LUCK WITH JILLIAN!

I am currently doing the 30 Day Shred too!
I am on Day 11 and have already started LEVEL 2 (on day 7!)
I would reccomend anyone to try her DVD, it's intense but DON'T GIVE UP happy

feel free to add for support & motivation.

I got up and did L1 Day 2 today after having started this yesterday. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. I am just now starting to feel some tenderness in my abs and shoulders, but aside from that? No real issues. I was nervous because I have bad knees and screwed them both up taking two falls last winter, but they haven't so much made a peep.

How am I feeling? OMG, confident (like I can actually DO this stuff), a lot more energetic, and a lot more hungry. (Will work out for food, ha ha)...

I'm on day 4. I've got two sets of weights -- 2 pounds, and 5 pounds. My hubby does the exercises with me with the 5 pounders. Has anyone tried it with 2 pounders and had good results? Or should I kick his ass to the curb and steal his weights? tongue

I started last night! Wow, I am out of shape. Jumping Jacks for 30 seconds! Good to see others out there going through the same thing. I am not giving up!

I started it last night, too! Kicked my butt, but felt awesome. Way better than any workout I try to do on my own, for sure! Can't wait to see what happens over the next 30 days :)

I don't know that the bands will work. Try holding a full water bottle in each hand. That will give you some resistance. :)

LOL I'm using 4 lb weights, and I swear I was dying on the side lunges things and would have loved to use 2 lb'ers! I think any weight used will work just fine.

My wife and I started this last night as well. She's using two pound weights... I tried to be macho and grabbed 10 pounders... I am super sore and was so tired last night after we finished it... I weigh almost 250 pounds and am not active at all, but I made it.

As the day rolls on though I am excited to get home and hit it again.

I'll post on here and stick with it to. Can't wait to see how it changes the wife and I after 30 days. Hopefully we can push through and be strong enough to hit something even a little harder after the month is up.

I finished Level 1 - Day 3 today. I am only doing it 3 times a week and I alternate with Les Mills Pump. I just started exercising recently and my knees aren't great, so I use a mini trampoline for the jumping on 30 Day Shred. That seems to have helped as my knees don't really hurt.

I also can't do full pushups, only the modified one. I previewed Level 2 today and from the looks of it, I will be staying on Level 1 longer than my 10 days before I attempt Level 2.

I've been on level 1 for nine days, today is day ten for me and I still can't do the full push-up either, I can do a few, but I always have to go back down to the modified ones in the middle of doing them.

I saw level 2 on youtube the other day and it scared me, but I think I'm going to try it tomorrow and see if I can do it and it I can't I'll go back to doing level again.

It's okay to take longer than 30 days for this thing; you shouldn't move up to the next level until you feel absolutely comfortable with it.

That was me too when I first started, but by day 5 I was able to get through all the cardio without stopping! So keep it up! You'll be surprised at how fast your body's endurance can improve in such a short time period (I know I was)!

My neighbor and I started doing this together and are on Level 1 day 9.....we were both so sore at first, but it is getting easier. We are nervous to jump to level 2, but we are already seeing a difference in our strength and stamina. Feels great! It is so helpful having a workout buddy to motivate each other to do this each day!

I started 30 Day Shred yesterday as well. This is my first time exercising sense by second baby who is now almost a year old. I completed the 30 day shred once before and was happy with my results. I did try to stick with the 30 day shred for 5 or 6 days and then take a break for a day. If i stopped too long i wasn't getting back into it.

I am doing it a little different this time. I am going to stick with level 1 for 30 days and then move on.
