Need to shake up my exercise routine and thinking of doing the 30 Day Shred by Jillian Michaels. Anyone do it?

DO you use any exercise DVDs at home? Any you recommend?

I've done lots of exercise videos in the past. I hated 30 Day Shred. I'm sure it's a good workout but Jillian drives me nuts so I wouldn't want to do it all the time. I really like Turbo Jam, although it's expensive, and there are a few good Crunch ones. I liked this one a lot: http://www.amazon.ca/Crunch-Cardio-D...3877966&sr=8-1

Yeah, I have the 30 day shred with Jillian Michaels, did it for a while. You need a yoga mat and weights to do it. I have another one I did when Veronika was little and liked it a bit better but it's 1-hour http://www.3daymelt.com/
Jillian Michaels stuff is 20 minute sessions.

You name it, I seem to have it

I have the 30DS as well and am not a huge fan of it. I have Insanity with I like but it's too intense. Right now I'm doing Chalene Extreme which is weight training and love it!

I have a few DVDs as well. I really like Leslie Sansone's walking dvd's. I have 4 of them. One goes up to 5 miles and one uses weights. They are very effective. You can do as little or as much as you want. The shortest is a mile and its 15 minutes. I try to do more but am limited because Mason gets too close as I'm kicking and using weights. I hope to get on a better routine when we get back from Disney. I also have a crunch DVD called Perfectly fit abs and I love it. I also have a treadmill that I can't use until Mason gets older. He makes me so nervous around it.
Thank you Claire1979!

I haven't done any exercise DVDs in ages. I think I had done some Denise Austin ones but to be honest- She just plain annoys me.

Do you have ON Demand programs through your cable?
I have found several different workouts available in the "Fitness" sections of our cable/satelite providers. Many of them have ranged from specific workouts (arms, legs, tummy) to full body. Along with different types of workouts.

I alternate between 30DS, The Biggest Loser workout (with Bob Harper, the very first DVD they ever released - there are 4 or 5 different workouts too, which is nice so you don't get bored), and Biggest Loser Yoga w/ Bob. I like them all for different reasons, though I certainly prefer Bob's style.
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!
