Today is the first day of May and I started Jillian's DVD workout "30 Day Shred". The workout maximizes fat burning cardio, strength, and Abs "1-2-3 Interval System". 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. You use weights for resistance and a mat if you are working on a hard floor. You are basically hitting all muscle groups while elevating heart rate and strengthening core all at the same time. The workouts are only 20 minutes and there are 3 levels. Basically you should try to move up a level after 10 days.
Level 1 day 1 was tough. I was already sore from yesterday's circuit workout. I didn't feel like my form was very good and I didn't feel very strong because of the muscle soreness. I expect to be even more sore tomorrow and the day after. The jumping jacks are hard and not my favorite but I got through it.
I am going to take a before pic and no, I am not going to post it until I have an after pic. I am also going to take measurements to track loss of inches and my starting weight is 177#. Good day and be strong in the name of The Lord!
