30 Day Shred: Level 2 Day 1

Today was Day 1 doing Level 2 of Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred workout video.  First impression of Level 2…  It was AMAZING!  I really enjoyed it but of course it was more difficult.  Can’t believe I’m already on Day 11 of the 30 Day Shred.  My plan is to stay on this level for 10 days as well and move on to level 3.

Level 2 starts up with similar warm up from level 1 with the exception of high kicks and neck rolls.  Love the high kicks!  There are a lot of new moves in level 2 like walking push ups, squat and row, high knees, oblique twists and much more.  There is one new move that I absolutely love called plank jacks. OH MY!  They are great!

The cool down is the same as level 1.  I really enjoyed this workout and look forward to the next 9 days.  It’s the same 3-2-1 formula as level 1, strength, cardio and abs.  Also you can still modify many of the moves.

I really am glad to see that Jillian takes time to talk about and show you proper form and breathing.  She motivates me to keep going.  And like she said today, you should push every single second you have in this 20 minute workout.  I just keep thinking about how my health will improve AND of course I’m thinking about Jamaica the whole time too!

I’ll be checking in every few days to let you know how level 2 is going. Thanks for your support and following along as I push myself to make it through this 30 Day Shred workout video.

  3. Angie,
    I like that you are going through your 30 day shred. It helps to know what is workable, and what is too difficult to attempt.

  4. Ha ha Nell! It wasn’t that bad but it was definitely a challenge.

    Level 2 was my favorite, Loretta. It’s a quick workout that is for sure.

    Thanks Diana, glad it helped for me to go through it and keep everyone updated.
