5.0 out of 5 stars I am at a pretty good fitness level September 11, 2014
Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars love it. fresh and fun September 10, 2014
Absolutely love it. It is different from the 30ds... Its more of a mix of exercises for shorter times. There are still circuits but they seem further apart. The warm up is quicker and not as exhausting. Th circuits consist of several different moves for 30 seconds a piece. I feel like there is more concentration on abs and butt than in her previous 30DS dvd.... And I've only done workout one so far loving the tushi exercises!!! Get this DVD really is only 20 min. Her 30ds said 20 minutes but was longer. this is 20!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's perfect for what I was looking for September 12, 2014

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Kinder and Gentler Jillian September 12, 2014
Verified Purchase
A Kinder and Gentler Jillian, it sure seems like it. Jillian's coaching style is a 180 degrees from her normal drill instructor routine. Maybe motherhood has mellowed her out or maybe she is tempering her personality to suit the fact she is promoting a beginner style routine. Both workouts 1 and 2 are exclusively strength. The third workout has cardio mixed in with strength. She explains in detail each exercise so that a beginner can benefit by knowing why they are doing the routine. I am an intermediate-advanced exerciser. I am not into hard core kill myself workouts any more. I used to workout till I threw up and that was before I bought a HRM many years ago. Now I haven't done the actual routine but previewed the video to see what Jillian offered in a beginner's workout. She does mention that this workout can be used for beginners, someone who has been away from working out for awhile, and last but not least new moms. Now this workout can be as hard as you make it. Increase the intensity on levels 1 and 2 by using heavier weights or following Jillian's advice of trying some of her advanced demonstrations (often done by Anita and sometimes Jillian) - The set itself is nice clean and uncluttered. Jillian brought back Natalie and Anita for this exercise dvd. Jillian's running commentary is encouraging and her detailed instruction makes the workout definitely doable for a serious beginner.

Let me just say that I am a huge Jillian Michaels fan. I use 30 day shred, ripped in 30, and blast fat boost metabolism regularly. She is the only trainer that can actually get my heart rate up high enough to see effective results. BTW, I'm not overweight or really trying to lose weight, I just use these as a maintenance tool...and they are awesome. I like to pick and choose from the 30 day series and intermingle those 3-4 days a week.

Anyway, although it said Beginner Shred, I thought that at least week 3 would be enough for me to have a mid-low range workout. Truth be told, I was not even sweating when it was finished and ended up going on the elliptical for 20 minutes after the workout and had to work out my abs some more. I think that the lack of cardio is the main reason for it, my heart rate just would not rise and my muscles did not fatigue at all. Week 3 does have some cardio, the first two weeks do not have any, it is all strength, but it is still not enough to be super effective like with the 3,2,1 system. This DVD does incorporate some of her signature moves like lunges with bicep curls, chest press with leg extension, abs, etc., but the intervals do not run long enough for more advanced people to get a really good workout. One example of a major modification in particular is for the plank rows, the plank is on your knees, and just not as effective.

If I was a beginner though, this would be the DVD I would run to in a heartbeat. It is a great low impact, yet effective for people that may have more weight to lose and are not in it just for their regular workout routine.
