I was feeling bored of shred today so put on music and kind of made up my own workout. Its probably done sod all but at least I did something. I might try level two tomorrow for a change

orangina Fri 04-Jan-13 20:43:53

Day 4 level 1 done. Still not getting through EVERYTHING without the odd break etc. Still haven't attempted a proper press up (can't face the humiliation....). Will work up to that one...!

Yay all of us! I was actually wierdly looking forward to it today!

orangina Fri 04-Jan-13 20:44:20

And like Festive, I do add some of my own things when I can't quite face doing what Jillian wants......

ninjinglebells Fri 04-Jan-13 20:53:59

Non yet blush - currently taking down Christmas tree and there are far too many needles on the floor, but I will!

Also running tomorrow morning and so may shred in the evening as well.

Day 3 Level 1 done still achey

I've never been able to do a proper push up well have done one that's about it.

ninjinglebells Fri 04-Jan-13 22:35:00

Well you inspired me to actually do it WiseKneeHair Levels 3 and 2 back to back smile

Didn't seem too bad, but then I had music on, trainers on (rather than my normal bare feet blush and a proper mat).

JustAHolyFool Fri 04-Jan-13 22:44:03

Has anyone done the 6 week abs thing? I think I'll do that when I'm done with the shred.

ReturnToPlanetVenus Fri 04-Jan-13 23:05:19

Day 4 done here. Maybe a little easier, but have still not managed a proper press-up, all knees-on-the-floor still.

IShallWearMidnight Sat 05-Jan-13 09:28:14

All my muscles hurt, and I hurt in place where I don't even have any muscles sad. But whe I did this last time, after a week the wobbly bits stopped hurting (not entirely convinced they started to go, but they certainly stopped hurting when I did the cardio bits), so I shall persevere --and punch Jillian really really hard every day in the boxing grin.

Ds handed me my weights this morning when i was making breakfast so I did 30 squat nd press thingys and 20 each side bend to the side things -not in shred (at least not in level one). I wish that could be it for the day!

WiseKneeHair Sat 05-Jan-13 10:32:46

ninjingle I'm honoured that I inspired you, but bloody hell! Level 3 AND level 2. I'm still limping through level 1. grin
Day 4 yesterday was definitely a bit easier, so I am beginning to think that I'll be able to go to level 2 after 10 days. When I started, there was no way I thought I would be ready.
Still not attempted a proper press up though.
Going to do day 5 today and I think I'll re measure myself in the hope that there is a difference.

WiseKneeHair Sat 05-Jan-13 10:34:36

Oh, meant to ask, has the OP ever reappeared? Or did she just set us up to this torture and is cackling wickedly in the corner? grin

pregnantpause Sat 05-Jan-13 14:44:27

did day three yesterday and will force myself to do day four today. I must admit though, yesterday I faced a wall of pain when doing it, today, miraculously, my muscles are finally easing. and I thought you lot past day 5 were lyinggrin

JustAHolyFool Sat 05-Jan-13 15:21:50

Did Day 2 today, was far worse than day 1.

Not too achey though. I need to get some proper weights.

IShallWearMidnight Sat 05-Jan-13 15:32:41

proper weights help -I did it last time with water bottles, but the weights are easier to hold and make me feel like I might be able to get past level 1 this time round

WiseKneeHair Sat 05-Jan-13 17:26:23

Day 5 completed.
Starting to think about level 2. Those that have done it, how much of a step up is level 2?
Oh, I managed to do one proper press up. grin

JustAHolyFool Sat 05-Jan-13 17:29:28

I managed to do some proper press ups today too.

FestiveOrganisoid Sat 05-Jan-13 17:41:43

Day four done smile
Also less achy today. Yesterday was the worst.

Proper weights definitely help. Last time i only used .5 or sometimes 1kg but this time I am mostly using 2kg sometimes 1.5. Much easier than using cans or bottles though!

wem Sat 05-Jan-13 19:30:45

Day five done. Moved up a level as I've started and stopped Shred so many times I've got very bored with level 1. Might have been a bit premature though, it's hard! You seem to spend half of the workout in the plank position! Having moved up before doing proper press-ups, my mission now is to attempt proper plank jacks and not die. I can't see it happening any time soon!

sweetkitty Sat 05-Jan-13 22:37:41

Day 4 here sore sore sore

Level 2 is a big step up but not as much as going from nothing to Level 1, I still can't do a proper push up and DP can do about 12, if it's any consolation DP is also aching and he ran 3 marathons last year.

ninjinglebells Sat 05-Jan-13 23:55:05


4.5 mile run/scramble (up and down hill a lot!) and a shred smile

Worley Sun 06-Jan-13 00:15:21

still desperate to start but can't sad did three songs with ds2 on his wii dance and I thought I was going to need oxygen lol... three days of antibiotics and steroids left then I might be able to start it again.. I'm looking forward to it !! I know it sooo worth doing it! well done every one on the first weeks almost donesmile

I missed yesterday - no time - but shredded today.

JustAHolyFool I did 6 week 6 pack over the summer. I can't remember much about it have wiped my memory. I started it because my knees were hurting with too much running/shredding, but from memory there is still lots of cardio.

wem I'd forgotten about the plank jacks. Nightmare.

My problem is with the side lunge/lateral raise jobby. I always have to stop.

mellowcat Sun 06-Jan-13 10:41:30

Level 2, day 1 done.

Mitchy1nge Sun 06-Jan-13 11:25:50

oops missed 2 days while maintaining anxious vigil in and around stables, but feel quite lean on my diet of horse carrots and electronic cigarettes coupled with exercise regime of lugging water/hay/horse around so will resume shred when I can and it can take any credit!
