I started 30 Day Shred today. I tried it out last week, but my legs were so sore
for days after. I've gotten back to it though! Made it through this time even though it was tough.

I tend to carry my weight in my belly, hips, upper thighs and butt....typical pear shape, I guess.
So, I started thinking... What if I do 30 Day Shred AND Killer Buns and Thighs in one day
four days a week?

I'm wondering if that would be enough strength and cardio combined and then I can do some
other ab workouts in between to take care of my belly.

Has anyone done this? Results? Ideas?

I've done it about 4 times now within the week. I am going to try to commit to once a day. The first day killed, the second left me sore, the third I knew I had worked out & last night barely fazed me after I was done. I am about 70 - 80 pounds overweight & in no way an athlete, but the brevity of the workout is motivational. As soon as I get into full swing cussing Jillian out, it's over. I use 4 lb weights. I think 2 pounders would be better for beginners, but the 4's are what I had laying around. Good luck!

The wife and I completed day 2 on Level 1 last night... Yesterday I was a little sore after doing it one day, but by mid day I was looking forward to hitting it again and pushing through... and I was able to give it a lot more the second go around, we both were. However this morning I am feeling it big time. My soreness yesterday was NOTHING compared to this morning.

So far I have done about 95% correct. The first day I did stop a few times and catch my breath. Yesterday there were only a few times I couldn't keep going with the intensity, but I never stopped doing something. If I couldn't do a few full squats, I kept curling my 10 pound weights till I could go again, and just skipped a few. That and a few of the side lunges I had to do some over head presses on just to keep moving while I caught my breath.

Also, I saw some women feeling bad about doing modified push ups... I use to be 220 pounds of muscle, worked on a shipping dock throwing freight for a living and consumed about 5000 calories a day... imagine how I feel having to do girl push ups! haha.. but at least I am doing SOMETHING.

Day 3 TONIGHT!!!!!

I've been doing 30DS and 6 week abs every day for the last 3 weeks and I've seen huge results. I think you will probably see the same results if you do 30DS and killer buns & thighs. I looked at the workouts for the killer buns DVD and they look tough so I imagine you will see big changes if you do both.

You should stop feeling sore after about day 4. The first 3 days of 30DS were brutal for me, I could barely walk up the stairs haha! It's amazing how strong your body gets after just a few days of the workout though. It's awesome, I know you and your wife will see huge changes from the workout soon!

How's everyone doing? I completed day 2 last night, will do day 3 later this evening! I'm not feeling too bad, just a little sore and shakey! I did feel a little nauseated after last nights, though! Guess it's working! Haha
January 23, 2013 8:10 AM
I start 30DS on Sunday. Skipped a day but did one this morning and will do another tonight to catch up to Day 4. I pushed myself too hard last night that I thought I was gonna pass out. So this morning I didn't push as hard. I hope to finish it this time around. I get to day 10 and give up. Never moving to Level 2. NOT THIS TIME!! glasses

Good job all!!

I did 6 Week 6 Pack a little while ago and I'm amazed I got through it on the first try. I'm debating if I've got it in me to give 30 Day Shred another shot today. My legs are still a bit sore from yesterday... but maybe you're suppose to push through it and at least try? If you don't mind me asking, what kind of results did you see from doing both 30 Day Shred and 6 Week 6 Pack every day?
Loss of inches? I'm still trying to figure out what pattern I should do these in. I'm kind of hoping to see some good results and get a few inches off in the next 6 weeks... (planning to continue, 6 weeks is just a goal date to see how far I can get by then). I want to make sure I'm doing enough of these workouts to yield some results and especially get some toning in those bigger areas of my body.

I just started the 30DS yesterday! My legs were pretty darn sore today (stairs were.. awkward) but I'm looking forward to seeing results.

For those that have done it before, are the chances of seeing noticeable results fairly high? I'm worried I will get through this and not see a change!

I just bought the DVD today, so will be starting Day 1 tomorrow. I'm excited to start! I've got plans to run a half-marathon in May and a full marathon in November but really need to lose a good bit of weight before I can start logging a lot of miles. I am going to do the workout first thing in the morning because if I wait until later in the day, life just takes over and swallows up all my time.

Didn't feel too bad after the workout, but man those front raises are tough. As the day goes on I'm slowly beginning to feel the ache. Gotta love DOMS. Wonder if it'll get worse tomorrow...

Keep going everyone!

Started today.
I am going to take a beginning and end photo to see the difference, which I hope is noticeable.
January 24, 2013 5:29 AM
Good luck! I hope to do that one next! I started ripped in 30 this week and I am SOO sore! which feels great! lol!

Day 3... Killed it last night... Made it through the work out with much better control over my breathing, and through all the circuits without stopping for breath or modification except for about 10 seconds on the side lunge on circuit 3 both times. Still lifted and twisted as I caught my breath. I even dug deeper into the squats.

It still killed me, but afterwards I didn't feel so sick and tired like the first two nights. And I woke up this morning with a little soreness in my arms and chest, but not a lot, and none really anywhere else. I'm already looking forward to hitting it again tonight.

Last night I worked late, got home in time to barely eat a couple of bites of food, grab the kids, and make it to church. Taught in kids church, had a meeting, had to run to the store after, and by the time I got home it was late, I was tired, sore, and hungry. I had not desire to do the workout, but knew if I did it would be easier today and I would feel better about myself. If I didn't, I'd be more likely not to do it again... ever... just being honest.

So the wife and I did it anyway... and even though we did lose some rest and did the workout WAY too late... I'm glad we did.

wow L1 day 3 done!!! it felt easier and 20 mins seemed to fly by! and my knees don't hurt yet, maybe because I do at least 30 mins a day on a stationary bike too, but at this rate I will definitely stick with it for longer than last time!!!

Level 1 Day 4 done today. Much easier today. I felt like I had much more endurance. Still can't really do the side lunges well, but I make an effort to get the arm part right. I also can do a couple of real pushups now!

Level 1 Day 1 done yesterday.

January 24, 2013 11:01 AM
you will see a change if you follow through with it. I am on day 18 and the changes are visable
January 24, 2013 4:02 PM
Level 1 Day 2 completed and I feel great.

Although I am getting tight inner thighs and not sure how to stop this. Sometimes after working out they are very sore to even touch them.

I've lost 8 lbs in the last 4 weeks, but I've noticed bigger changes in inches. 3 inches off my waist, hips, and thighs so far. I do 30DS in the morning and then 6w6p in the evening. I've also noticed lots of toning in my arms too. All of the workouts on the DVD's are great!
