Jillian Michaels is NO JOKE!
If you’ve done any of her workouts then you know exactly what I am talking about. I was quickly reminded of this fact yesterday when I previewed the One Week Shred DVD. I like to watch the DVD before doing the workout but yesterday I felt like just jumping in.
Holy Heck Jillian!
I’ve done her workouts before so I thought that I could do both the AM and PM workouts back to back. First thing she says in the DVD is that the workouts should be done separately so as to not over train. Okay, Jillian. I’m still planning to do them together. The strength workout was intense. Some of her familiar moves are also in the this DVD but with more variations to make them more challenging. She definitely kicks it up a notch. Several in fact!
After 4 circuits of the AM workout I was happy for it to be over. I know I will get better with more practice but she definitely kicked my booty with this workout. As tired as I was I took a 5 minute break, got some water and hit play on the PM workout. I can do this. Okay maybe not just yet. I think I got about 5 minutes into the cardio when I stopped it. Okay Jillian I give! It does make sense to space out these workouts in a day.
I checked out the other DVD options. Jillian has also included a meal plan with this DVD. I am going to use as a guide for next week. I do not eat as much seafood as is listed so I will have to make some swaps. This will be my workout for the rest of the month. I’ve been slacking on workouts but it’s time to get back to it!
