I've just completed day 10 of level 1 and definitely not as achy as I was at the start. I've increased the weights to 3kg for circuits 1 and 2 but drop weight for final one as flagging by then!

Disappointed to not have lost any weight but haven't really been watching what I've been eating (the 600cal of Easter egg last night probably didn't help!)confused

Am dreading starting level 2 as hate planks, feet always seem to slip away! Have got buns DVD but not started yet. Im interested to know what the six pack one is like? Is it all abs exercises, any cardio in it?

I've just done day 1 of 30DS...really going to push myself to do the whole 30 days this time as really need to tone up and lose a stone! Managed 8 days about a year and I really did start to feel/notice a change in muscle tone and had comments. After this planning the 6 pack in 6 week so also would like to hear about that smile

Hi rusmum, I'll de-lurk! Have been following this thread every day as I started shredding on 1st April. Going to Ibiza on 16th May and need to tone up and lose a few pounds.

So day 8 done...only using 1kg weights and really struggle with the cycling sit ups at the end....but everything else seems to be getting easier.

Trying to eat 1000-1200 cals per day and walk every day.

Must admit, I do feel better - hoping to look better too by day 30...(roll on 30th April!!)

rusmum Mon 08-Apr-13 21:21:08

Yay hi!! Was getting dis heartened, especially as weighed in and lost..... Nothing!!!!!!! sad Worked so hard too. Oh well day 8 tomorrow

Is anyone having rest days?

lavendersgreen Tue 09-Apr-13 14:34:05

I haven't had any rest days yet...just finished day 9 and am starting to worry about what level 2 is going to bring.

Weighed myself and have put ON a pound!! What??!! Would I be kidding myself to claim it's muscle??

Mmmm, will keep on going and see what happens....

Makingmama Tue 09-Apr-13 15:00:54

Ha yes I've just had 2 rest days after day 1! Due to my muscles aching SO much! Will do day 2 later today and caryy on daily from there. Have just bought some 1.5kg weights to use.

Ladies i've been shredding for a few weeks, i'm at level two session 8. It has made a big difference. I have lost several inches. My waist has seen the biggest loss.

It's free on u tube if you can use your laptop, lots of her dvd's are on u tube, 6 week six pack for whoever mentioned it.

I'm going to try shred level three alongside 6w6pack. I'm needing to fit into a bikini! :-)

rusmum Tue 09-Apr-13 20:01:21

Day 8 done, day 9 in morning then starting level,2 confused scared of that agh!!! Decided to,push through and not rest. Was just very achy. Can't see how it will,make a huge diff with low calorie burn but will,keep,on!!!!!!! How we all going?

lavendersgreen Wed 10-Apr-13 15:14:50

I'm also going to start level 2 tomorrow - strangely looking forward to the change but worried it will be too hard and I'll get fed up!

Will report back in the morning when I've given it a go.

I've been shredding too, I've just done day 4 L2. It's V hard, I struggle with the strength bit of circuit 3... My arms kill!!!

Think I am starting to notice a change, better upper body strength, arms more defined. Just want a toned bum and tum now!!!

Onwards and upwards!

lavendersgreen Fri 12-Apr-13 16:28:40

Ok so day 2 L2 done...have to agree with notnow, my arms definitley look more toned. I can feel in my abs that they've had a work out - they just don't look that great yet!

Glad this thread is here, it's helping to keep me motivated xx

rusmum Fri 12-Apr-13 18:28:20
