So, I just started the 30 Shred on Monday and I already skipped day two, but that was because I danced for over 2 hours, so I think that counts as a workout for the day. Don’t be fooled, I really enjoyed the first workout and I will be doing it virtually daily. While I could probably skip level 1, I am going to work through the program as instructed.
Level 1 is only 20 minutes long, but you are constantly moving and switching up exercises, so it’s a workout. It’s Circuit Training: 3 minutes strength, 2 minutes cardio, 1 minute abs, and each circuit works slightly different muscles. Her strategy is to work large and small muscle groups together without a break. For virtually every exercise there is a modified version. For example, I can’t do a ton of “boy” pushups, so I do as many as I can and then I do the “girl” version on my knees.
This is great for a busy lifestyle because it’s a fairly intense 20 minutes in your living room as opposed to going to the gym or doing an hour long video. If you do it on a consistent basis, I think it will work, but I will be sure to update you on here. Ryan and I did it together and we actually broke a sweat & felt good afterwards and the next day. My quads are a little sore, but a good sore!
