Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred

I just found an exercise video that I actually enjoy! I mean as much as I can enjoy an exercise video. :P I think I like it because it’s only 20 mins long and the moves are not too hard. At first, I experienced some knee pain but the more I did it the better my knees felt. I guess I have been using my knee pain as an excuse to not exercise when I just had to push through it to make it feel better! My old physical therapist told me that my knee pain is caused by my quads being weak…and boy…this workout is crazy on the quads because it has lots of squatting!

Anyways, another cool thing about this video is that it’s available on amazon and you can buy it through their Watch It Now link! Which means I can dl it to my laptop and exercise wherever I have my laptop! You can also dl a mobile version for your phones (and there is a hack to get it on your iphone too). Very convenient and great for travel. The DVD has 3 different levels. I downloaded only the first level since it’s the easiest just to see if I even liked it (I had read a lot of good reviews about this prior) for only $1.99! It’s a good way to test it out before buying the whole thing. I love technology nowadays :)

So join me on my 30 day quest with the 30 day shred….yes, that means exercising every day !! but at least it’s only 20 mins of your day. :P

My cousin’s wife is doing this program as well and I think another female friend of mine recommends Michaels’ workout videos.

One way to strengthen your quads is to get out of a chair properly. Most people lean their forward to generate momentum. Try keeping your eyes on the horizon, scooting your ass forward and then standing up. It’s tougher than you think and will help lengthen your leg muscles.
