A friend of mine said I needed to try one of Jillian Michael's DVDs, 30 Day Shred. I wanted to start working out and needed a place to start. So I got that DVD, and it KILLED me but I did it to my best ability and have worked myself into doing it and a couple of her other DVDs. This just came out, so I thought I'd grab it and see what I thought.

WOW I WISH I HAD THIS BEFORE I GOT 30 DAY SHRED!

A lot of the moves in this are similar to those in level one of 30 Day Shred, Ripped in 30, No More Trouble Zones, and Banish Fat Boost Metabolism, just slowed down so you can get the form right. If you want to start somewhere, it's here. Work with these workouts for the first month, then pick up the 30 Day Shred and start on level one. You'll have more confidence and endurance! To this day my favorite Jillian DVD is Banish Fat Boost Metabolism. It has the best calorie burn for your time, but I had to work up to it. You can do it! Good luck!

I LOVE this workout! Jillian is MUCH more encouraging in this workout than in her previous ones. I also love the clean white set - no clutter to distract me from a good, solid workout. The exercises on both workouts are circuit style, incorporating both strength training and aerobic movements, and both workouts give you a nice full body workout - but the exercises in each workout are different: FRONTSIDE targets the muscles in the chest & shoulders (also works abs and triceps); BACKSIDE focuses on strengthening your back and firming your butt (it also hits the biceps!) The instruction is excellent; this one's a keeper!

I wasn't a regular viewer of the Biggest Loser TV show but I was always impressed with how people looked after they lost weight. Not only were they thin but had muscle and looked so healthy. I have a number of exercise DVDs from the Biggest Loser TV franchise and I now know that these results were gained by cutting edge exercise and diet science. Plus an education clearly communicated.

This circuit training DVD includes two work outs: front side and back side, the warm up is at the beginning of each of the 6 circuits. Repeat each circuit exercise three times. Do front side work out one day and then the back side work out the following day.

This DVD is the PREQUEL to "30 Day Shred" and other Jillian videos. An excellent education, attention to form and visualizing the muscles working. No drive to the gym, you can exercise in a minute from thought to action! Jillian gives modifications, low impact and advanced ways to do the moves so you can tailor to your situation.

Front Side Work Out:

Circuit One: Warm up with jumping jacks, squats, and push ups. Repeat two more times.

Circuit Two: Warm up with marching in place, bench dips and king squats. Repeat two more times.

Circuit Three: Warm up with jump rope, chest flies chest press and sumo squats. Repeat two more times.

Circuit Four: Warm up with jumping jacks, chair squats with arm raises, and shoulder presses. Repeat two more times.

Circuit Five: Warm up by marching in place, tricep kickbacks, shoulder press. Repeat two times.

Circuit Six (Shoulder): Warm up with jump rope, lateral raises for the shoulders, triceps extensions and plank. Repeat two more times.

I love this tape. I am a fan of the biggest loser so that helps too. But most of the time I don't end up doing exercise DVD's because the music annoys me. I try to do them with the sound off and lose track of things. This is the first tape I have ever seen with no music in the background.

I have some restrictions on exercises from my doctor and a couple of the things she does is on the restricted list but that is an uncommon situation. The exercises are basic and not advanced and most people could easily do them.

The other thing I like about this tape is that being very overweight, the exercises are such that my weight does not make them too hard to do. Sometimes my belly gets in the way. Jillian did a great job of setting this up for those of us who really need a beginner work out.

I got this one mainly out of curiosity. I have many dozens of workout tapes. In fact, I have one of Jillian's that is too tough for me. I wanted to see if this one was more my speed.

Jillian is highly instructional and encouraging in this DVD. There is a friendly, helpful atmosphere. She's a regular chatterbox, talking us through each move and giving suggestions and recommendations. The workouts are in sections, each demonstrated by one of the contestants from past episodes of The Biggest Loser. These are not people with 'perfect' model bodies, so it was less intimidating. They were once unable to do these, so there is hope for me. Jillian "assigns" several short exercises and then they do them several times, often demonstrating (with a sense of humor) several options viewers can use as they get stronger.

I took advantage of the sections using weights, since I haven't used them for a long time and wanted to start again as a beginner. I don't do jumping jacks or push-ups, but after seeing them demonstrated here in such a non-threatening way, maybe I might try the push-ups one of these days.

I like this DVD. It isn't overwhelming. It's do-able.
