The only thing I noticed that was inconsistent is it says the workouts are 30 minutes long, but they are actually between 40-45 minutes long (Level 1 about 40min, Level 2 about 42min and Level 3 about 45min). I guess if you don't count the warm-up and cool-down, then they are 30min of strict strength/cardio training.
And for those people that get annoyed and actually pay attention to what she is saying, she complains a lot about people saying on Facebook and Twitter that her workouts are too easy and how that pisses her off and she mentions that a few times. Not a big deal, but I know people get annoyed about stuff like that.
If you own her other DVDs, you will notice she incorporates a lot of the moves from 30Day Shred and Ripped in 30, especially on the Level 3 workout. That being said, it doesn't feel like you are doing the same workout as in the other DVDs. I like that these workouts focus on the lower body because I am sure they burn a lot more calories.
Well, I was very wrong. When I went to the doctor for a yearly check up and found out my cholesterol was high, I decided to pick up a couple work out DVDs to get in shape.
I started with Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred and I can't recommend that DVD enough. After working my way through level one and two, I decided to pick up another DVD to alternate with Shred. I chose Killer Buns and Thighs, and it is glorious.
Now on level two after two weeks of level one, I can say that I'm getting results from this and Shred. My thighs and bum are firmer but more importantly, I feel healthier. I have more energy during the day and sleep better at night after an afternoon of working out.
For those who are beginners like me, don't get intimidated by Jillian Michaels. She explains the exercises really well. If you're new to Jillian or to exercise DVDs in general, start out with 30 Day Shred and supplement your weekly regimen with workouts like Killer Buns that target your problem areas.
By the way - level two is hard but really fun. Single leg burpees, reverse squats, lateral jumps (lots of jumping, actually). And the ladies do a great job of making you feel like you're there, toughing it out with them. Jillian has her own style of no-nonsense encouragement. It's refreshing and it works. There is this excellent positive energy around level two that makes me get into it every time. Now I can't wait to work my way towards level three.Read more ›
This quick review is about workout 1 and 2 and I did them back-to-back tonight. I may update later w/workout 3 but I just wanted to write quickly to say that Jillian herself says she lies (!) about time - of course (and thankfully so) the workouts are a bit longer than she announces in the beginning. Lots of plank work, variety of lunges (curtsies), front/side/back kicks, some plyo work, working with the chair (step-up to back lunge), side planks with inner thigh lifts, old school mat work. In workout II I really loved the single-leg burpees back to plank and then back up to single leg and jump or the single leg squats with corkscrew overhead press with jump. I was sweating big time in Level I - I wouldn't recommend anyone skip this one because it is a great challenge and of course, with Jillian, you can make it even more intense. All of this can be paired down to suit your level of ability. Overall, for first workout, I had 146 avg hr and burned almost 430 calories in 38 min for workout I.Read more ›

Like most Jillian videos this will be a challenge - I think that one can start at any activity level, if they allow themselves to go at their own pace. Read morePublished 13 days ago by RKW
