Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30 - Week 3
Sorry I'm a little late with the week 3 review. Had a sore foot for a few days and needed to rest it. But, week three is complete. I'll be honest here and say Week 3 felt like a bit of a break. Sure the moves were difficult and I did sweat, but they just didn't come together to result in a good enough workout for me. Well, except for my triceps. This is triceps week for sure! So that I did like because those little guys are hard to work sometimes. Shoulders and hips also come into play this week.
What I missed this week was all the core work. I felt like Weeks 1 and 2 had a huge core focus (moreso in week 1) even during moves that weren't specifically defined "core" exercises. Hopefully we'll see more core work in Week 4.
All in all though, still happy with the DVD. There are some great workouts in here that I see myself using from time to time as a fill in or for a day where time is an issue. I can't adequately comment on results as I have been pretty inconsistent (ok, very inconsistent) and my diet is still garbage. But I do feel stronger and my core is getting tighter again which makes me happy. With week three down the tubes, I can still wholeheartedly recommend Ripped in 30! JM has a very good sense of what body parts cause the most trouble for women and how to work them well.
I'm a mom of two who is fast approaching 40 and finally figuring out who she is. I work a ton and try to keep my family happy so that doesn't leave much time for me. These blogs are documentation of my journey into and re-discovery of health, fitness and fashion for the 30+ set as I spend a little more time exploring myself. Thanks for reading. I'd love to hear from you!
