I've only done level one of the workout and WHEW, do I feel accomplished. Jillian begins the video by stating that she encourages you to do both levels of the workout back to back. She got the side eye from me because that simply wasn't happening, at least the first time around. I'm quite sure I could work up to it, because this workout is FUN (please note that I generally hate cardio). I hurled a of couple four letter words at her through out the workout, but never wanted to stop. Some of the movements are a bit ODD, but I'm not a boxer and I've never done jiu jitsu so it makes sense. In Jillian fashion, you complete each circuit twice. Level one ends around 35 mins. At this point Jillian asks if you want to move on to the next level. If not, you can finish with a 5 minute warm up. I previewed level two and there are a ton of new moves. Level two is about 45 mins if you skip the warm up (same one from level 1). Jillian adds modifications throughout (So glad to see Basheera back--love her) for higher and lower levels of difficulty. If you aren't in shape I would imagine that you wouldn't enjoy this workout at first. If you're a Jillian fan who follows the previous videos, you will love it.

Having qualified, I love this workout. I've been doing Kettkeworx, Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred and exercise bike work and I've hit a bit of a plateau in terms of body change and boredom (the later has always been a challenge for me.). I picked up Extreme Shed & Shred as the price made it a no brainer - totally worth a try.
I am so glad I did. This routine incorporates classic cardio & strength moves but adds some martial arts and yoga moves. It seemed like a slower pace than 30 DS but don't be fooled. My workout mat was wet with sweat. I likely looked pretty silly at times but the martial arts moves and yoga positions make it really fun. The day after my first new workout, I was sore in some new spots.
I plan on continuing my Kettkworx routines but will add this workout at least once per week.
