Who has actually completed THE SHRED? What were your results?(45 Posts)
Yes! I started two stone overweight and lost first stone shredding whilst eating primal/boot camp lite (low carb).
I started 30DS in June and not only did I finished it, but I literally fell in love with exercising again and progressed onto other more challenging programmes. At the beginning I hated it, but I preserved and then when I saw and felt what good it did for my health and look and general sense of wellbeing I got addicted to it. Now I exercise 6 days a week and 30DS is not challenging any more, but I can honestly say that this exercise DVD was a game changer for me as it was a kick start of my fitness journey. Tough, short and portable - you can easily fit it in your day even with busy lifestyle. I even did it on my holidays, I didn't want to make long break because I was afraid of horrible muscle soreness I would get when restarting (and because I feared I wouldn't go back as this was at the beginning).
Another love-it person here. Did it two years ago - took longer than 30days but progressed up a level every ten workouts or something.
Have done it here and there over last couple of years, but have recently bought Ripped in 30 - same format. Nice to have new workouts after getting so used to the Shred.
I wouldn't say I massively lost weight - but I feel good good good !! arms more toned - I actually have abdominal muscles !! I stand up straighter. Overall - really really good. I've varied it with jogging for some extra cardio.
Love love love it !
I did 30ds for 6 weeks, resting every 5 days, whilst going low carb/primal and went from size 14/16 with fat tum to 12, lost 6 inches off waist, then 6 wk 6 pack and started dance classes, which has led to me being just under 130lb and size 8/10. Am 42 and 5'6 and in best shape of last 25 years, total weight loss over 2 stone. Really can't recommend it enough.
First 3 days of Shred the hardest - do extra quad stretches whilst holding onto furniture and stretch calves too. It passes and you get SO much stronger so quickly - the most effective workout I've ever done.
Resting every 5 days has always been recommended by JM herself, as has 'eating clean' - focus on natural foods and cut sugar and processed stuff.
I stick to 1200cal a day and it takes a fortnight to lose a pound! But as I said I don't really have much weight to lose and I'm really short so that amount of calories is fine for me. A 'normal' sized person could do it on 1500cal a day.
I think I'm as light as I'll get now but I'm happy to keep shredding. I've never had a flat toned tummy before and i want to keep it forever!
I didn't diet as such. I just tried to eat healthier.
Sorry its 23.5 inches I have lost..just had to check.
Its a brilliant workout it works very well for me.
in the first 30 days I lost 7 inches from all over and a few pounds but I don't have much weight to lose really.
I've been doing it every day for 5 months now and lost 20 inches and a stone.
I did it 5 days a week (always have weekends as rest days). When I ached I just kept going and eventually it passed, bound to ache if you are working muscles which otherwise don't get used. I have had better results since and now even have some ab muscles. I did the 6w6p after the 30ds and saw more results and then have been exercising every weekday (and running on weekends) ever since. I also did the race for life 5k this year. 30ds definitely kick started everything for me though. X
I completed the 30 DS around March of this year. It was tough but the results were really good. I lost about half a stone and really saw a change in bodyshape. I lost about 4 inches off of my waist and 5 inches off of my hips. I have carried on exercising since and have lost a further 1 1/2 stone. I love the High intensity way of training and the short workouts. The pain to start off with is bad and your legs and back do ache but this all goes away by the time you move onto level 2 (I found).
I don't know if the link will work (as it is a link to my facebook pictures and I have certain privacy settings) but the picture is of me (at top) starting 30 DS and bottom is me when finished! I have always had my mummy tummy (have 3 kids) but would say that the 30DS really started my weightloss and exercise journey!
I only managed 17 days but dropped a dress size when combined with alow cal diet. Starting again on Monday as I put lots on over the last few months and need to fit into my slinky dress 30th Nov
When do you stop aching so much?!
I'm only on day 2
I did my knees in on it by day 7. I think the number of people who injure themselves with it is probably higher than the number that complete it.
Hi Future, I've only just seen your thread. I did the shred faithfully for 30 days straight. I was coming at it from no muscle tone at all. I gained ab lines, lost 2 inches off each thigh, 4 inches from my belly and 1.5 inches from my hips. I did not los any weight. I was very disappointed but really it was quite a success and I'm just about to start it again. Good luck!
Future, do the shred again. I was amazed to find that it makes the muscle soreness better! I've had a couple of days off on my second round and have been much more sore the day after those days.
It could have been ripped in 30.
I used to alternate between her DVDs.
ihatethecold that move isn't in 30 Day Shred, it's in Ripped in 30. Just for reference.
I've completed 30DS, didn't lose a pound. But I was so much leaner. I'm now a week into Ripped in 30 and have lost 3 pounds and further improved my shape. TBH I didn't have much to lose, so my results are great.
I have done it several times all the way through, and tbh never really notice much of a physical difference but then I am very active in the first place and don't find it that difficult.
I do it mainly for the mental boost, I have anxiety and depression and find shredding in the morning makes a huge difference to my ability to cope
Thanks ihate, that movement doesn't sound familiar but that's probably because I've only ever done L1D1!
Well done for getting started futureforward. Have you done any more?
