If you’re new to the Shredheads blog and are interested in joining in all the fun (okay, it’s not really fun, but it will be when you fit into your pants!), then here’s a quick tour of the site:
30 Day Shred
You can purchase the 30 Day Shred DVD (which is a series of three workouts lasting just under 25 minutes) on Amazon.com. If you’ve got Comcast On Demand, it’s free, although I’m not sure if you can get all three levels. It’s also available for purchase at Exercisetv.tv.
I did the 30 Day Shred everyday for the entire month of March. Since the Shred is split into three levels, I did Level 1 for 10 days, Level 2 for 10 days, and Level 3 for 10 days. You don’t need anything but 3lb weights and a yoga mat (if you are working out on a hard surface). You should think about investing in a good sports bra, as well as new cross trainers. The Shred is tough on the knees and shins.
For gear suggestions and links, please check out the right side bar or our Amazon store.
There’s nothing to say that you can’t mix up the levels, or do it every other day. However, if you want to maximize your results, then you’ll want to do it everyday. Plus, it’s only 20 minutes.
Make sure to take your weight as well as your measurements before you start. And be brave – take a picture. There’s nothing like comparing a before and after!
I didn’t follow the 30 Day Shred diet plan. Basically, I stopped eating after 8pm, drank only water (with a few tasty beverages – ahem – each week), and just watched what I ate. No boxes of donuts or gallons of ice cream.
