Very nice way to ease into a workout routine!
Melinda L. Fox
Instead, these workouts are primarily strength training exercises; in fact, there are NO cardio intervals at all in levels 1 and 2.
Cee Watz
Jillian still packs a variety of moves into the 20 minutes and still makes you feel like you got a good workout.

My background: I am at a pretty good fitness level; I exercise on average 6 times a week, using mostly Jillian Michaels' DVDs. I have already mastered Jillian's 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, etc. With that being said, I am not a beginner and you might be wondering why I even ordered this DVD. Well, I am scheduled for a minor surgery in two weeks; and although the surgery itself is minor, I will be on pelvic rest for 6 weeks during my recovery. According to my doctor, NO EXERCISE whatsoever during my recovery (I even have to walk at a slow pace). Not being able exercise for 6 weeks will definitely leave my muscles atrophied, and I will need to ease my way back into exercise once my doctor gives me the green light. I pre-ordered this DVD in hopes that it will be a good workout regimen after my surgery. And IT WILL BE!

I received the DVD today and I've already tried levels 1 & 2; and I previewed level 3. As usual, the workouts are done in circuits. Each level contains 3 circuits (doing each circuit 2 x). Each workout is about 25 minutes long (including warm up and cool down). Jillian does NOT utilize her famous 3-2-1 system here (3 min strength, 2 min cardio & 1 min abs). Instead, these workouts are primarily strength training exercises; in fact, there are NO cardio intervals at all in levels 1 and 2. However, my heart rate was still high at certain points due to the fast repetitions (and I used heavier weights). The wonderful thing about circuit training (especially the way Jillian does it), is that you still pretty much get a cardio component during your workout due to all the different moves and supersets. Jillian incorporates all the basic, yet essential strength training moves such as lunge variations, squats, arm rows, modified push ups, etc.

These workouts are much gentler on my knees than the original Shred. It's perfect for what I was looking for: Short workout, affordable and very well produced. Plus, it's Jillian Michaels, she's the best. Can't go wrong with this one.

Beware of how the reviewers here have defined "beginner" because most of them assume a beginner is someone who was previously in shape, but just dropped off the fitness cycle for a while. For those of you who have never worked out (ever) or for those of you who have more than 50 pounds of weight to lose, this may not be the best choice for you. Try Jane Fonda's latest workouts or Richard Simmon's for a real beginner level.

If you really want to do this, you need to be able to do at least the following (even in level 1) without having your body get in the way:

1. Squats
2. Lunges
3. Pushups (the modified ones are still on the floor)
4. Tricep Dips
5. Planks
6. Bridges
7. Crunches

You can modify most of these by making the movement as small as possible. For example, do 2 inch squat wherein you lower your body only 2 inches during the squat exercises, or do wall pushups and planks. If you do this workout often enough (at least 2x a week), you should see improvement in terms of increasing the amount of movement for each exercise. You just might have to stick with the level 1 workout for a while until you can get to the point of doing regular pushups/planks/squats, etc. Then you can move on.

That all being said, this is a great workout for building up strength and increasing fitness level, hence the reason so many "return to exercise" reviewers like it. I am not a fan of Jillian's other DVDs primarily because of her "gotta be merciless" attitude in those DVDs, but this one is different. If Jillian quit The Biggest Loser because they always made her out to be a boot camp drill Sargent, then I would say this DVD is probably closer to the reality of Jillian. She doesn't hold your hand, and she doesn't abuse you.

I have every single Jillian Michaels DVD. This is by far my favorite, and I'll tell you why. I am 46 years old. In the past, I've had a knee injury and a rotator cuff injury. In January of this year, I lost 10 pounds, but strained myself kickboxing and ended up with a back injury and bursitis in my right hip. Frustrated and depressed, I stopped working out and gained the weight back. When I preordered this DVD, I had no idea that it was going to be the key to get me back into working out again.

This is true--I have lost ten pounds in a month and I'm on the seventh workout of level three. I can tell you that my legs, arms, and abs feel incredible. I have more stamina, and just this week I have biked twenty miles every day! I am so fired up and feel like my old self again. I was truly afraid to work out after all these injuries, but this DVD allowed me to wade my way back into working out.

I appreciated that Jillian gives low impact choices this 3 level DVD. The thing about my hip and back are this--they seem "fine" until I jump around and it's not until later that I realize I've overdone it. She takes you through each exercise nice and slow, and the time goes by quickly. Yah! No more injuries!!!

Having done several of Jillian's DVDs in the past with great results, I was excited to try her Beginner Shred DVD. After taking a 3-month hiatus from high-intensity workouts due to a busy schedule (and I'll admit, a little laziness), I was ready to get back into the swing of things. However, I was scared to start with some of her more advanced DVDs like Ripped in 30 and 6 Week Six-Pack (which I love) simply because I knew that my strength and cardio abilities were not up to par. That being said, let me get into this DVD.

The workouts are 20 minutes long (a little longer with warm-up and cool down), which I think is great for a beginner DVD. Jillian still packs a variety of moves into the 20 minutes and still makes you feel like you got a good workout. After doing the first workout, I was a little disappointed with Jillian's style because, as others have mentioned, she does seem to be a little too nice. Maybe that's because I'm used to her style from her other DVDs, but it's not really an issue. What's more worth mentioning is the fact that I was sore after the first workout, even though it was only approximately 20 minutes long! I was impressed!

After doing all three workouts I can tell you that they do progress in terms of the level of difficulty. Also, the third workout has more cardio intervals than the first two. Overall, I think it's a great DVD to get people back into exercising and I look forward to working it into my routine when I either want an easier or shorter workout. However, I am subtracting one star because I was looking forward to Jillian kicking my butt a little more in terms of motivation.

Do you need hand weights?
Yes, you need hand weights. You can use 2 or 3 pounds to start out, and build up to 5 lbs. They use a mat in the video for the floor exercises. I never use mat, bit I am doing the floor exercises on carpet.
