30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels
Celebrity personal trainer of the hit show “The Biggest Loser”, Jillian Michaels - 30 Day Shred offers a workout DVD to help get you in shape. Jillian combines 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of abs, which she also calls ’3-2-1 Interval System ‘ in this workout DVD to help you burn more calories and to get shredded in 30 days. The system Jillian Michaels uses has three 20 minute workouts that will increase in intensity. All that is needed to do the workouts is a yoga mat and a small set of hand weights. I will be discussing in this review the pros and cons of Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred and give you my opinion on whether whether this workout DVD is worth buying.
1) Workout Intensity :- If you have seen Jillian Michaels in action then you don’t need me to tell you that she is very serious about her training. The Jillian Michaels workout DVD – 30 Day Shred workouts are just 20 minutes long so my initialI thought was that they they couldn’t be all that hard. I have been working out for many years at least 3 times a week so I had some serious doubt that these workouts would be all that effective for me but I can truly say I was wrong. I admit that I wasn’t expecting much out of level 1, which is the least intense of the three workouts, but Jillian suprisingly got me working. Currently Im up to level 3 and even after a few weeks of using the workout DVD, I still find myself getting my heart rate up along with sweating away a good amount of calories.
2) SavesTime:- One of the great things about Jillian Michaels fitness DVD – 30 Day Shred is the amount of calories you can burn in the length of these workouts. There just aren’t many workout programs that can give you an effective workout in just 20 minutes. This is a great feature for those that are short on time or have busy schedules. A workout can be done whenever some free time opens up during your day. Whether it be before work, lunch time, or after work, these 20 minute workouts can be done at anytime.
1) Workouts Are Limited:- With there being just 3 workouts on the DVD, I would say that this is my biggest criticism of the Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred. Once you get in better shape and move up to level three this is going to the only workout left for you on the DVD. A few extra workouts would have been nice to give you a bit more variety. A good example would have been to include three workouts for each level so this would give you a variety of exercise routines to choose from to keep your workouts fresh. This really isn’t a huge issue because the workouts are quick and intense leaving little time to ever get bored but having different workouts would have been nice.
The hit show ‘The Biggest Loser’ has built up a solid reputation for Jillian Michaels for great reason and with this DVD you have access to Jillian’s expert training. If you lead a busy lifestyle with not much time or would like to add some quick, effective routines to your workout routine, Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred is a very worthy purchase.
