5.0 out of 5 stars Tough As Nails! You'll Love Every Second February 3, 2009
Format:DVD
I have all of the non-BL Jillian Michaels workout dvds and was thrilled that my UPS guys beat the snow to deliver this new addition today. It does not disappoint!

Here's the skinny: 7 six minute circuits, no weights, no equipment. Just you and some free space to jump around (you don't even need that much space; trust me, I live in a tiny NYC apartment and am completely able to do all the exercises). Each circuit is made up of a set of exercises performed twice before moving on to the next circuit: full body engagement, plyometrics and some serious core work mid-way through. But the focus is really on getting your heart rate up and Jillian delivers (my husband walked in after I was done and said he'd never seen my face so red before -- so beware! It's a tough enough workout that you might not look stunning immediately after; you can save the stunning for the beach this summer!)

Now, I should mention I have done JM's 30 Day Shred and love love love love it. There's no better way to get in a thorough workout in 22 minutes. This is not The Shred. There are many familiar exercises, but it's a much longer workout and the intensity is modulated to make it possible to keep going for the full 45+ minutes of the workout. I was intent on getting through the whole workout, so I can't speak to what the experience would be like for a beginner. But, the dvd is broken into chapters that split at each circuit, so theoretically, you can progressively build up as your stamina increases. I imagine I will have days when I'm pressed for time and just want to hit 3-4 of the circuits, and the chapters are designed to allow me to pick the ones I most like (or hate! depending on how tough they are!)

Also, I find Jillian's style to be increasingly more mature with each new dvd.

5.0 out of 5 stars More difficult than difficult June 10, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I bought this DVD to reward myself for slowly working my way up to Level 2 of the 30-Day Shred, which took several months because I am not always consistent about working out. I felt pretty confident about my fitness level, because at one point, Level 1 had made me feel like I was going to die, and then Level 2 had the same effect, and now I felt like I was ready for anything.

Well, I had to stop after the first 26 minutes of this video. Partly because I pulled a muscle in my hamstring. And partly because I'm not used to working out this hard for 40 minutes. I am used to having a 26-minute workout with the 30-day shred.

This, by the way, is not easier just because it's cardio with no weights. Not easier at all. I was not expecting this. There are yet more exercises that challenge me! Yet MORE exercises that make me feel like I'm going to die! Lots of explosive pylometrics, lots of compound bodyweight exercises, lots of REAL athlete exercises! YEAH! The only thing harder than this would be CrossFit.

Four caveats:
1. If you've spent some time on the 30-day shred (and even if you haven't), take it easy and be careful with the toe touches during the warm-up. You don't want to pull your hamstring in the warmup like I did because you're going to need your legs to do all that kickboxing later.

2. Don't click on her "health tips" video in the bonus section--unless you want to see an cringe-worthy plug from someone you thought was above all that. She says stuff like, "Eat fresh fruits and vegetables!" "Drink plenty of water." And then, out of nowhere: "And use an electric toothbrush from Oral B!" What now? Then her health tips turn into this full-blown infomercial for Oral B electric toothbrushes, starting at $22 each. WTF?

5.0 out of 5 stars Just buy it already June 9, 2010
By DKG
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
All the five-star reviews are right. Just buy it (if your doctor approves, of course).

The DVD includes a warm up, 7 workout circuits, and stretching segment.
In the warm up and in each circuit, you perform about five exercises for 30 seconds each and then repeat all five exercises for 30 seconds each.

Warm up: Arm circles, Toe touches, Arm swings, Jogging. Repeat.

Circuit One (Kickboxing): Squatting side kicks on right side, Alternating punches while squatting, Squatting side kicks on left side, Jab-cross-hook-elbow boxing move, Alternating front kicks. Repeat.

Circuit Two: Burpies (drop to plank position and jump up), Plie hops, Punch-hop combination, 180-degree jumps, Single-leg hops. Repeat. IF YOU CAN SURVIVE CIRCUIT TWO, YOU CAN MAKE IT THROUGH THIS WORKOUT.

Circuit Three (Old school Calisthenics): Butt kicks (jogging with heels hitting gluts), High knees (jogging with knees high in front of body), Jumping jacks, Oblique crunches on right side, Oblique crunches on left side. Repeat.

Circuit Four (Floor work): Mountain climbers (striding while in plank position), Lay face down on floor and lift chest and thighs simultaneously, Pike crunches, Oblique twists, Walking plank. Repeat.

Circuit Five (Kickboxing): Swing kicks, Uppercuts (upward punches while squatting), Back kicks, Jab-cross punches while squatting, Knee crunches. Repeat.

Circuit Six: Jump squats, Cross-country skiing, Scissor kicks, Side skaters, Standing mountain climbers. Repeat.

Circuit Seven: Mobiles (twisting jumps), Standing pikes (standing ab crunch), Knee crunches on the right side, Knee crunches on the left side, Jump rope (without actual rope). Repeat.

Stretch. Lasts about five minutes.

Should I quite my gym and just do Jillian's Videos?
I spent a year in the gym, 6 days a week for about 2 hours a day and I've seen better results with my 3 Jillian tapes than any of my gym routines. But I also hated the gym. So I'm thrilled with my tapes and the fact I don't have a gym membership and have to deote all that time every day to... Read More

How does this compare with No More Trouble Zones workout?
I like this one better than no more trouble zones and 30 day shred. First of all, 30 day shred only gives you 20,40 min of intensity if you are intermediate to advanced, where this DVD is a full hour (7 circuits of workouts). It is a great cardio workout, and for the days you overload on your... Read More

Are you using with along with No More Trouble Zones and how?
I just got both DVDs. I haven't done this one yet, but from what I am reading, its all cardio. So if I were going to build a workout schedule from these 2 DVDs, I would alternate days. You shouldn't strength train two days in a row (although I know Shred does) - you should have a day of rest.... Read More
