Jillian Michaels' Ripped in 30 - Week 4
Finally finished all four workouts and am putting this DVD to rest for now - I'm sure I'll revisit again when I am more committed.
Week 4 is the final week in this workout series and it did not disappoint. Definitely a thigh and butt week for me. I was feeling the burn! The ab moves are more advanced this week as well. Most of them I could not do due to a back issue but I was able to modify. My only complaint with this workout is the actual ab work. It is only 3 minutes a day. Perhaps though if I was able to do the moves Jillian was doing I'd feel differently, but I really felt like adding in other ab work would've given me better results.
And speaking of results, how'd I do? Well, I really didn't do this workout religiously week after week. My mojo didn't come back until after I did the last workout. For people doing the entire program 4-5 days a week and following the diet plan, I have no doubt there would be awesome results. Even though I didn't follow all the rules and pretty much ate like crap, my butt and legs do feel tighter and my stamina has certainly increased (thank God).
I'd recommend this workout to anyone who's looking for a time saving, doable workout. Looking to get into that bikini next month but don't have a ton of free time? This is for you. :)
What's next? Well, my Asylum workout arrived last week and I couldn't ignore it. I am presently on Day 5 of that workout and love it. So far, no missed workouts and I feel great. Stay tuned for more on Asylum.
Have a great weekend all!! As always, I'd love to hear your workout stories.
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!
