The idea is this: three levels, 30 minutes each, for 30 days straight at 10 days per level. You can find vid's on YouTube, or buy them.
My friend started it, but I jumped in after her first day to join her. It was great cause we got to bond over our pain and accomplishments together. As an avid gymmer, I figured why not change things up a little bit? Plus, it's bikini season soon, sooooo that doesn't hurt.
Sharing how we felt about our legs growing
What did I learn from this workout program? Lots of things.
- Jillian Michaels is psycho. Crazy. Out of her mind. My friend and I bonded over how we felt every night after shredding, and it included conversations such as these:
I censored it just for you. But you get the point.
- Girls don't glisten. Girls sweat. I don't care what you wanna call it, but it happens. In level 2 and 3, I had it dripping off me, into my eyes, on my mat. It was attractive. But it really makes you feel like you accomplished something.
- Even if you look like an idiot doing a particular workout move, after 10 days straight, you get the hang of it. Starting the workout, I knew I couldn't do bicycle crunches. I looked like I was having a spaz on the floor. But then, magically, 10 days later I was able to do twenty. Improvement people!
- 3 lb weights do serve a great purpose. She uses 5lbs in her videos and I'm used to using 8's at the gym, but her workouts are so intense that anything higher than 3 and I probably would have passed out a few times.
In the end, it was a good workout if you're looking for something quick to do at home. If you can't make it out to the gym, pull out a Jillian Michaels video and you won't be sorry. Or your might be the next day when you can't walk.
