Did 6w6p yesterday. Today I didn't really have time for it, so I did the seven minute workout instead (you can google it). I did three circuits, so 21 minutes. It's not too difficult if you're used to Jillian but it's good for a change or if you're away from home. I got a free app for it.
I also downloaded a yoga app, which does a whole range of classes. The 15 minute stretch class is good to do after a workout as an alternative to the usual stretch.
rubbish- if you have a dodgy ankle then you may won't to avoid too much jumping? If so, them No More Trouble Zones would be good. It is longer but you can just do certain circuits if you are short of time. Also L1 of Killer, L1 of 6W6P and L2 of Shed and Shred have no jumping in I think.
Did BFBM with DH (back from Afghanistan - hurray!) yesterday. 5 mile walk and L 1 Shred today. Not sure about tomorrow.
Ripped in 30 is a very similar format to Shred (timewise, but 1 more level than Shred). Level 1 is very easy but after that it's a step-up from Shred.
Killer Buns and Thighs is an excellent DVD - does what it says on the tin. It's a bit longer at 30 mins.
No More Trouble Zones - around 40 mins, all strength, no real cardio. I hate it because I find it really hard!
6W6P - around 40 mins again I think. 2 levels - it's a great DVD but take care if you have any back issues.
Extreme Shed & Shred - is really fun. 2 levels, 30 mins each. Takes a few goes to get into the swing of it but it's a goodie. Probably not as hard as some of the others, Level 1 anyway...
Burn Fat Boost Metabolism - 40 mins cardio all the way. You will feel nicely cooked by the end. Has circuits so you don't have to do all of them if you don't want to (same with No More Trouble Zones actually)
Yoga Meltdown - I am becoming a total bore about this one as I adore it. I think it's a fab DVD to mix in with some of her other workouts!
I'm sure there are more, but I can't think ....
My current favourites are Killer Buns, E Shed & Shred and Yoga Meltdown. I guess Yoga Meltdown might be a good option compared to the others with a bad ankle as there's no jarring impact as it were, I'm not sure though.
I'm not a Jillian Michaels nerd at all, oh no...
Shout if you have any more questions and stick with us
and well done getting back into it Earslaps - I always find it's hard after a break!
Happypiglet, I think 6W6P is the DVD most likely to aggravate if you have any kind of back ishoos!
Bless me Jillian for I have sinned. Not only do I have Bob Pure Strength which I haven't done yet, but early this week in a Yoga frenzy I ordered Bob's yoga workout too!
Not sure how it compares to YM really. It's twice as long, so an hour all in. And I managed to pretty much keep up with everything apart from the Bird of Paradise, where you basically tie yourself in a knot and then stand up Seriously!
I'm not aching as much as I have been after YM, but perhaps YM trained me so well and that's why?! I'll hold off until I get out of bed tomorrow to say for sure...
I shall report back then! Hope everyone is doing well - have a great weekend
Hope you enjoyed Killer knotty Did L1 6W6p this morning- actually quite tough in places and I enjoyed it. I find flat on my back ab work hard tho (due to back arch thingy) so it prob won't be a favourite of mine... Still not decided on a plan for next week. Will think it over this weekend. Have a good one everyone..
Threesteps, glad your mum's op went well and hope she recovers soon. Congratulations Happypiglet, that's amazing! Didn't do any Jillian yesterday as my back was a bit painful yesterday morning, so decided to rest it. Feel better today so will do Killer L2 which was planned for yesterday.
So glad to hear it went well threesteps...what a relief. Well I did Killer L3 as scheduled...jumping lunges AGAIN but thankfully no jumping squats...I must admit I modified the lunges slightly... This weeks programme (L3 of Ripped, Shred, Killer and L2 ES&S) has been extremely leg heavy... so I am planning to give L1 6W6P its first outing tomorrow- I previewed it today and it looks doable. To give my legs a bit of a break. Not sure what my plan should be next week- its my last child free week until after Xmas so I feel I should go out with a bang but not sure I can cope with that line up again! And breaking news hit my target weight of 8 stone 7 lbs today... back to my pre 3 DC weight hooray! Hope none of you are caught up in this storm.
Mum's op went very well yesterday. She was in overnight and discharged this afternoon and she'll hopefully sleep for a few days and take it easy. I'm dogsitting her dog and am close at hand if she needs anything. (She didn't want me to stay - perhaps she'd had enough after bunion-gate lol!)
Did L1 YM yesterday and today L2 Killer followed by L2 YM. Loved Killer, I hadn't done L2 for a while...
Hope everyone is doing well. Thank crunchie it's Friday tomorrow
Hi all Jackster hope you feel better soon.. threesteps thinking of you and your mum today- hope all goes well Just finished L3 Ripped ... 3 days of my 'L3' week done so feeling pleased with myself. Although I have noticed a fundamental flaw in my plans. I have done jumping lunges and squats every day so far... can't remember if they are in L3 Killer that I am doing tomorrow...I sincerely hope not!!
I'm ok thanks. Still managing to maintain my weight despite some bad eating creeping in due to lack of sleep (teething DS). Trucks did pop onto the 6w6p thread, she's doing lots of dance classes so not much time for Jillian.
Hope your joints are feeling ok now, do you still have any exercises from the physio you could do?
Jackster get well soon and don't exercise until you feel better. I remember trying once with a dizzy head and it was a horrible experience.
Happypiglet, YM will defo help you with flexibility It's a totally different kind of DVD as there are no weights and no cardio - but you will feel it the next day! I will stand proud with you as a lover of ES&S
Earslaps well done with YM! And thanks so much for the back stretcher link. I found similar ones on ebay that cost a bit less and it's gone on my xmas list
Notyummy totally agree about single legged burpies - she puts those in L2 and single legged mountain climbers in L3, which I think are far easier! Not sure how I feel about knowing there is no cardio in the Bob DVD bang goes my excuse lol Am now considering trying it this weekend...
Double YM today, nothing yesterday. I'm going to make myself interspere YM with something else, so perhaps a Killer tomorrow.
Currently have mum's dog here with mine and they follow me everywhere I'm dragging a long cloak of dogs wherever I go!
Thanks for the well wishes for my lovely Mum Her op is tomorrow morning. She should be out on Thursday all being well. She's upbeat and ready to get stuck in and get the whole thing over with. She is a trooper, there's no doubt about that!
Done ES&S L2 and loved it again!!! Although I can feel it now! I did Killer L2 last Friday and found it tough... Not got YM but everyone seems to love it... do you think it would help my flexibility (which is 'not my strong suit')?? Still have 6W6P unopened in my lounge... oo maybe on Friday I should give L1 of that a go as I hadn't decided on a DVD for that day. Anyway L3 Ripped to look forward to (?) tomorrow
I did do L2 Killer today. It hurt!! Those bloomin single legged burpees nearly finished me off. I don't find particularly hard cardio wise (last bit of last circuit gets me going though) but my legs were burning throughout..
Well done Earslaps! Happyp, yep you are mad to look forward to L2 es@s - it's so very unpleasant! In fact it's up there with L2Killer as the most horrible workout imo. Did you do that today notyummy?
Annoyed as have come down with a heavy cold and bad sinuses - was thinking I might be able to manage a Davina DVD, but was a clammy, sweaty, dizzy wreck just doing the school run so decided against it!
