    Heeeeey everyone,

    i thought i would start a ''shred thread'' both for my own personal motivation and for anyone else who wants to jump on the bandwagon..!!

    For those of u who dont know, shred is a fitness dvd by jillian michaels (personal trainer on the biggest loser usa) and its full title is 'the 30 day shred'..

    She claims that u can lose up to 20lbs by following the dvd. There is 3 levels and the aim is to do 10 days at each level. The workout is only about 20 mins long and concentrates on circuits that incorporate strength, abs and cardio.

    So girlies feel free to join this thread and jump on the shred bandwagon lol.
    :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D:D

    Hi. I'm doing this too. I'm on day 4.
    I did it last summer and I can tell you, its really, really good. If you stick to it, you'll see some amazing results by the end of 2 weeks.
    I'm trying to do it every morning for 6 days a week.

    Day 3, well done! I've just done level 1 for the first time and can't say I enjoyed it but will try and keep at it. Not so keen on my body wobbling when I do the jumping jacks lol. And I used to be an aerobics instructor until I was pregnant three years ago (hangs head in shame!) now I'm struggling with 20 mins of flat out exercise, would not be able to do an hour at this weight but looking forward to being fitter again :)

    It must be ok to do that though? Surely there is no point in designing a programme that can't be a little flexible for those of us who actually have a life!!! lol!!!

    Well done for doing it so far, I'm still blooming impressed!!! x

    Can I join in?!

    I'm shredding too. I'm on Day 4 today, but I've just done my run for the day so I'm going to wait until a bit later to get shredded! I'm finding it really hard, but mainly because I have no strength in my arms at all!

    I have exercised a fiar bit over the last year, but stupidly have concentrated on cardio and my arms are just rubbish. Hopefully sticking to this DVD will help me get my arms in better shape though.

    Good luck to all of you for todays workout and (if I have any energy left at all!) I'll pop back on later and catch up!
