Rusmum-what are you going to do when you finish the 30 days? I'm on day 20 and worried when I finish I'll lose the (tiny) bit of muscle definition I have gained and put weight on?
I'm thinking about going back to level one to try and maintain my weight loss and tone.
What has anyone else done post-shred?!

I finished day 30 on 30th April and feared exactly as you do lulu, ref losing (mildly but noticably) improved muscle definition. I've been doing the 3 levels on alternate days ie 1st may L1, 2nd May L2, 3rd May L3, then start again back to l1 on 4th May.

I do the cardio in levels 1 & 2 with weights tho....also trying to do the harder version of everything where I can.

Don't want to stop now I've got going....good luck everyone smile

I like lavendar's plan. I have insanity but not ready for they yet s will save it for later x

day 4 done smile. Some of the exercises I find really easy (chest presses for example); others I find really tough (the side lunge with the arm raises...its the arm raises I struggle with). Anyone else find this?

Thank you lavender!
That's a good idea, really want to maintain and don't want this month of exercise to have been for nothing If I'm not going to maintain it!
I don't want to know what "insanity" is!
I'm shocked at how much I've got into it though, I'm not a natural born exerciser or even slightly fit but I feel like I HAVE to get my shred in everyday and I even went for a run the other day ha, bring on Rio 2016! grin

Insanity is like the jump moves in level 3 for 40 minutes!
