    I've done quite a few of the Weight Loss challenges but not an exercise one. I can't join in the WII fit one because I don't own a WII, but I do have a DVD player...so for every day in August I'm going to do an exercise DVD.

    I'm going to start with the 30 day Shred, but if I get bored (likely to happen fairly quickly), I'll do a different one.

    Feel free to join me...

    The power of three was b4 the high energy five so I don't think it is so intense but it defo get results from it.
    It consists of a warm up, the legs and butt section which oh my days is the hardest but feels so good working the muscles with the lunges etc! then their is the stomach section which has really helped shrink my stomach yay. and then the arms.
    I like the sections as you can just do one or as many as you like. I do one of each section for the week andfind that is challeging enough for me for the time being.
    I had a newer Davina but it was all the areas intermingling and I don't like that at all, I like sections!

    Welcome! I'm a Davina fan too. I also like Scary Spice's (Mel B? Or is she C?) DVD as that's a section one too, and starts with a menu where you choose which ones you want to do that day and it runs in that order for you.

    I love shred though because its tough but short! But I get bored easily. I've got the new Davina - FIT, but haven't tried it yet. Have any of you tried it? How did you find it?

    So Day 2 - 30 min treadmill (hill program, 3 miles), Shred level 2 (25 mins). Feeling gooooood :)

    Oooh longratia you're so near goal! Did you do it all on the Dukan diet? Was it hard?

    DVD wise I like anything that's split into little segments like 1-2 mins because I find it goes quicker. The Shred one is a combo of cardio and strength. There's 3 levels, each take 25 mins and consist of 3 mins strength, 2 mins cardio and 1 min abs repeated 3 times (plus a short warm up and cool down). I tend to add it a little of my own cardio (running) to burn a little more fat. I love running, but dont do any strength work unless I do the DVDs

    Ilovelife Happy Birthday for tomorrow!!! Enjoy :)

    I staed atkins on 1st Jan and lost 11lbs up until 31st may when i started Dukan. So majority of weight lost on dukan :D
    Its not hard once you get into it, and I was already used to low carbing from atkins. Its been a long hard slog but dukan seems to work well for me. :D

    That DVD sounds good. :D
    Im doing Davina legs tonight which has cardio intervals and lots of squats!!!!
