Fitness expert Jillian Michaels leads a mean ass 3-2-1 interval fitness program. This new ripped in 30 workout contains four 24 minute workout routines. She made a workout program that contains cardio with strength training for maximum calorie-burn. Jillian also recommends sticking to her 30 day diet meal plan (1300 cal per day). I already wrote an intro to this Jillian Michaels workout so an additional one is not required. As stated, due to my busy schedule, I really needed to find something that would fit into my program. I wanted to tone and burn that fat off. Honestly, after week 1 I think I might have found not only one of the meanest workout programs, but a good calorie-burning workout. Jillian Michaels is kicking my ass into max. gear!

Jillian Michaels ripped in 30 week 1

Week one of Jillian Michaels ripped in 30, might just be on of my favorite DVD workouts ever! Day zero I observed her workouts and learned how to do each move correctly. The reason I am saying this is because you can seriously strain a muscle or even worse end up with serious injuries. I have done these kind of workouts in an aerobic – strength training class for a fews months and if you do not do each move correctly you can end up with serious injuries. Jillian Michaels does stress this constantly throughout the video. Another thing that I have to mention would be the warm-up and cool down or stretch workouts. I personally think that the warm-up is OK but the stretching sucks! It’s just not enough to get that proper stretching. It’s good for a cool down but that is about it. Each workout turns out to be around 24 minutes. These might be awesome cardio – strength training Jillian Michaels workouts but I need more stretching at the end of the workout. View below for videos that I use.

Ripped in 30, Jillian Michaels is serious!

Once Jillian Michaels said in the video, you want to be ripped in 30?! You got it! With each new day, each workout gets easier. This allows you to try and do the harder modifiers. I got hooked and excited about doing these 24 minute workouts! Don’t be fooled  by the 24 minutes number. Those are 24 minutes of non stop Jillian Michaels cardio – strength training workout moves. The workout is no joke. She gives you no breaks in between workout what will result in maximum results for your body. I am sticking to my own 1300 – 1500 cal meal plan to get maximum results. Make sure to have water near by, you will sweat like never before and you will get thirsty! Jillian Michaels makes you work hard for results!

Jillian Michaels wants to to burn fat and get toned!

After day one of Jillian Michaels ripped in 30, I wanted to give up. The first day is the worst! You get so tired and scared of day two since you know what you are up against! I strongly advise you do not give up. As soon as you get to day 3 you will love it! Looking back at this I do advise the Jillian Michaels ripped in 30 for anyone that has intermediate workout skills and that has some previous knowledge of cardio – strength training. If you do not have such previous, I advise taking the first 2 days very slow and learning how to do things correctly. Combing Jillian’s ripped in 30 and the additional warm-up and stretching workouts I really do believe that I will get amazing results thanks to Jillian Michaels.

Conclusion week 1 of Jillian Michaels ripped in 30

Below you can see the additional warm-up and stretching workouts! I’m already feeling results on my leg muscles. They are getting more toned and that I am getting slim. The muscles that I feel the most results are on my tights and buttocks, arms and lower back and back. I love that after each workout I feel the muscles that I worked out! In week one, I worked out for 6 days. On day 4 and 5 I ate after the workout but only because on those days I ate less then 600-800 cal and I didn’t want to starve my body. If you like the workouts you will to enjoy doing the full 6 days and resting the 7th day. I am looking forward to week 2.
