Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Hey ladies, I've been looking at dvds today for a post natal work out. I really want to get in good shape as soon as possible after this baby. Its been a couple of years since I've exercised regularly and heavily. Do you think the 30 Day Shred would be too much for me? Also, how long postpartum would you recommend waiting to start this? TIA!

Once you are fully healed and have energy back I would say you could try the 30 day shred. Its intense but you can start from anywhere!

On my smart phone which is clearly not as smart as it seems to believe

Re: Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

I think the 30 day shred is the perfect workout for a beginner/post natal. It's a short full body work out! And once you get your routine and get used to working out again you can bump things up to something more difficult

I couldn't do the 30 Day Shred. I don't have knee problems but my knees bothered me after I did it, so you might want to try it out first. Level 1 is on Youtube:

I am currently doing lvl 1 and it is hard (that being said I am still in the obese side of things).

I got mine (lvl 1) for 2 bucks on amazon streaming, and the three lvls were 4.99 total.

Whew, did lvl 1 for the first time today. My goodness I knew I was out of shape but I had no idea it was this bad!
I will say though she did a great job of keeping me attentive and focused, which is hard for a workout dvd.
Oh, and it was a tough workout. My arms will feel it all day tomorrow.
