My husband will attest to the fact that I’m sort of a Jillian Michaels groupie. But only because her workouts WORK. For my birthday, he got me the latest and greatest Jillian workout,Extreme Shed & Shred. It’s awesome.
The workout is really hard, which is great if you’ve been using other Jillian workouts like The 30 Day Shred, Banish Fat Boost Metabolism, Ripped in 30, or 6 Week 6 Pack. It’s good to have something new to challenge yourself. If I’m going to spend time working out, I want to feel like I’m getting something out of it.
You can do level one of the workout, or level two, OR, and this is really fantastic, you can choose to do both workouts back to back. I love that since what I often do with the other workouts is lump them together – so for example, I will do all three levels of the 30 Day Shred, but skip past the warm-ups and cool-downs of the ones in the middles. With Extreme Shed & Shred, you don’t have to do all of that skipping around and going back and forth in the menu. Doing both workouts together gives you a really awesome workout that lasts about an hour and 20 minutes. Yes, that’s a lot of time, but it’s really, really good. The individual workouts stand up well on their own too.
If you exercise and want some really good muscle/cardio/ab workouts to add to your mix, I heartily recommend Extreme Shed & Shred. It might be too late to order it for Christmas unless you live near an Amazon distribution center or have Prime, but you really should try it. If nothing else, it will be a good jump start to your New Year’s Resolutions. Assuming that your New Year’s Resolutions include some sort of health/exercise component. Which they might not. In any case, this is a stellar workout!
