to think Jillian Micheals is pure evil?

(80 Posts)

well she is <typing with seriously shaking hands from the evilness of 30 day shred level 2>

Of course she is!

That's her point!

I love and hate her in equal measure!
I did the 30 Day shred and lost my baby weight and even a few more kilos. This morning I did her 50 minute cardio workout off YouTube.
My butt now hurts... angry
She's brilliant and gets results, well done for keeping up until level2!

YANBU - but I find L3 slightly kinder....maybe move yourself up a level and see. I once did L2 and 3 back to back, she was a right bitch then smile

Is it worth getting this DVD?

Try doing her burn fat boost metabolism workout.

I find shred level 2 just about doable (apart from walking press ups but that's due to my dodgy back). I got cocky and tried BFBM and felt like I was dying and could hardly move the next day.

She is a goddess as she gets results when you stick to it.

Saying that I haven't done anything since Xmas, maybe that's why I'm not all up on the Jillian hate right now - ask me again when I start it back up!

Yes. I did level 1 for a week, and ended up with knees that hurt with every step for a fortnight.

I don't know whether it's my technique or the inherent evilness of the work-out, but when I start again, I won't be doing the bending bits!

walking press up, wtaf is that about, they look so simple but hurt so very much. It is only muscle hurt though and I have lost 1.5inches of my waist already so musnt grumble really.
Tilly sorry about you knees thats rubbish.
Crazy Kat I will look at that as I am already thinking what to do next, maybe ripped in 30. To be fair they do say exactly what they are going to do to you in the title dont they?

The Jillian Michaels DVD is leering at me from across the room, I swear.

2tiredtocare Thu 06-Mar-14 14:06:38

I love her but verbally abuse her at will

HeirToTheIronThrone Thu 06-Mar-14 14:13:26

Oh god, shouldn't have clicked here - only on day 2 of level 1 of the shred! Ok so far, apart from my utterly feeble press up abilities...

TillyTellTale Thu 06-Mar-14 14:14:29

My husband joined in with me on it, before I went on strike. We chorused swearwords at her. The word 'evil' was practically punctuation!

heir that was me just over a week ago and now I can do proper press ups, i can not however do walking ones.

Mine's still in cellophane in the spare room next to the unopened box of handweights. I'm scared!

Aeroflotgirl Thu 06-Mar-14 14:15:33

She is evil but brill. My body looks so buff and I've been doing her various DVDs over the year. I was a size 16 Jan 2013 and now I'm a size 10/12 and can see my abs. I wanna look like Natalie from her DVD, her body is fantastic.

and what seems to hurt the most on this level is that horrible pouch just above the front of your lady garden, I didnt even realise that was a muscle. If sh can get rid of that I will marry her.

Aeroflotgirl Thu 06-Mar-14 14:17:02

You hurt to high heaven at first but your body gets used to it as you go along.

aero I am a 16 (well I was 2 weeks ago) can already squeeze into a 14. I shall be in that 12 before the summer.

Aeroflotgirl Thu 06-Mar-14 14:18:46

I hate mountain climbers, moguels, jumping runners and renegade rows ooooh the pain

Aeroflotgirl Thu 06-Mar-14 14:20:15

Good on you dita you can do it. I do it religiously when kids at school/bed. Tge six pack DVD is good too, lots of core exercises. I did cut down what I eat but do have the odd treat in the day.

TillyTellTale Thu 06-Mar-14 14:21:21

Oh, fine. I'll start doing the DVD again. I would love to lose a dress size!

I am a bit obsessed with core at the moment, my job involves quite a bit of lifting and the amount of colleagues who have back problems is immense. I read somewhere that your core loses 1% of strength from 40 sinc I turn 40 in a couple of months I thought I would outsmart it.

Aeroflotgirl Thu 06-Mar-14 14:22:28

I lost 3 Tilly, I was a waist 34 and am a 30

tilly, do you wear trainers when you do it? I found my ankles hurt when I didnt.
