What Comes After P90X?

Perhaps it's fairly obvious by now that I'm a Jillian Michaels groupie.  Ever since her 30 Day Shred, I must purchase every DVD she comes out with.  Although, and I know I haven't come through on my promise of a review yet, the 6 Week Six-Pack didn't really do it for me.  But this one, Jillian Michaels-Ripped in 30, seems promising so I pre-ordered.  It will release in March, just about the time I finish this round of P90X (hopefully).  If nothing else, it should break up the monotony of my workouts.  My attention span seems to hover around two weeks to 30 days when it comes to exercise routines.

Amazon describes it as follows:
Features 4 levels of workouts over a four week period. Each level incorporates Jillians' best-selling 3-2-1 interval system: 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. The 3-2-1 system is repeated three times in each workout and is designed to get you ripped in 30-days.

Begin with week 1 and when ready, progress to the next week. Each week will get progressively more difficult, however each workout offers modified moves ideal for both beginners to those more advanced students.

Four 24-Minute Workouts

Any other Jillian Michaels fanatics out there?


  1. I liked her 30 day shred too... but after doing the X, Insanity and TF now for so long, I can't imagine going back to these shorter workouts... well, on a regular basis that is. May be something to swap in from time to time. Do you plan on doing it straight through the month once you get it in March?

  2. Hi Laura. Not sure what the exact plan is yet, but I will be looking forward to the shorter workouts as a break. The one hour plus a day is really getting to me as my time has been really cut short these days due to work. I think if you can get a good full body workout in in less time, that's cool too. We'll see though. :)

  3. No, you are completely right... longer doesn't always mean better! Can't wait to read your reviews!

  4. Longer surely doesn't hurt though - well, it may literally hurt, but ya know what I mean. I wish I could get into the longer workouts again. Not sure what my problem is these days. I need sun and warm weather!!

  5. I have a bunch of her workouts, too. I like the length because one-hour at a clip rarely fits in my schedule. And I like the circuit and superset formats. 30 minutes always feels do-able... Hence no excuses for skipping

    I have to admit that I am not as impressed with 6-week six pack... The pace feels a bit off for the moves in it to me. The speeded up circuit makes me feel like I am compromising good form, and faster moves doesn't necessarily equal better.
