This amazing DVD by Jillian Michaels is a 50 minute workout, including warm-up and cooldown, that includes innovative toning moves to target trouble spots. While not for the true beginner, I think this workout would be good for all levels, because she shows modifications for beginners and advanced exercisers (although sometimes not until halfway through the set). Also, you move at a slightly faster pace throughout, so you get a cardio benefit from this workout as well, although its’ main focus is toning your body into great shape. The circuit nature of the workout means that you continue to burn more calories even after the workout is over.

The workout is composed of seven 6-minute circuits that leave no muscle unworked. You can choose to do the entire 40 minute circuit or just select the body parts you want to focus on so you can focus on your “problem areas”. Each of the circuits consists of 5 different exercises that you do for 30 seconds each, then repeat the entire sequence for a total of 2 sets of each move. Jillian has a lot of unique, effective compound moves (compound means that you work the upper and lower body at the same time). She uses 3 lb. weights and a mat for the workout but you could adjust the amount of weight to suit your needs and use a blanket if you don’t have a mat. I’ve included a breakdown of all the moves below:

Warmup: Basic marching in place, jumping rope (no rope needed), arm circles, skaters (simulate speed skating) and jumping jacks. Then you repeat the entire sequence for a complete five minutes.

Circuit #1- Shoulder & Legs

– Squat with Shoulder Press

– Backwards Lunge with Side Shoulder Raise (repeat on other leg)

– Chair Squat with Front Shoulder Raise

– Front Shoulder PressOuts

Circuit #2- Chest & Abs

– Chest Press with a Crunch

– Chest Fly with Double Leg Raise

– Bicycle Crunches

– Squirms (lying down with knees bent. lift head and shoulder blades off ground and alternate bending to the side and tapping your heels).

– PushUp

Circuit #3- Biceps & Butt

– Deadlift with Hammer Curl

– Static Squat with Concentration Curl

– Front Lunge with Wide Grip Curl (repeat on other leg)

– Side Lunge with Biceps Curl

Circuit #4- Thighs & Triceps

– Chair Pose with Triceps Kickback

– Sumo Squat with Overhead Triceps Press

– Surrender (step back and down to kneeling position then stand up again)

– Forward Lunge with Triceps Pushback (repeat on other leg)

Circuit #5- Core

– Double Crunches

– Twisting Plank

– Plank with ToeTaps (repeat with other leg)

– Windshield Wipers (lying down lift both legs and move from side-to-side)

Circuit #6- Upper Body & Core

– Plank with Back Rows

– Superman

– Scissor Kicks

– Pelvic Thrusts (repeat on other leg)

Circuit #7- Lower Body & Core

– Side Plank

– Side Lying Leg Raise

– Inner Thigh Raise

– Donkey Kicks

– Fire Hydrant with Kick

Then relax with a nice cooldown.

Overall, out of the over 200 workout DVDs I own this is one of the best and I highly recommend it for great results. Jillian is motivating without being too peppy and cues well. If you stick with this workout you’ll be ready for short summer shorts and bikinis in no time at all. Enjoy! :)

I am a huge fan of the Jillian Michael’s approach to fitness. I used her Shred 30 program and lost 29 pounds in two months by doing the workouts and following the diet recommended on her website. Let me start by saying I am not one of these people who just “LOVES” to workout. I do it because I need change. I tried this workout yesterday as it is available on Exercise TV/On Demand and I have to tell you, it was the most transformational exercise experience I have ever had. Jillian’s coaching and motivational speak are reverberating in my head even now. For this workout you will need 3 to 5 pound weights and about an hour (trust me this hour is worth it). She starts with 5 minute warm up that is cardio and dynamic stretching infused. SHe cools down with a yoga style static stretch that is just wonderful. There are roughly (six) 7 minute segments in which you do about 5 powerful arm and leg focused or ab focused work. The intensity of the arm, ab and leg work basically guaranteed me that I am going to see the results I want to see over the next two months. I usually dont feel a burn in my glutes and hips which are a real trouble spot for me, did not have that problem this time. Working out is not really my thing, as much as wanting results and knowing I have to do it in order to get it, but the strength and euphoria I felt after doing this workout is indescribable. I recommend this to anyone who wants to believe in themselves and begin transforming themselves into the person they wish they were. This comes with the highest recommendation I can offer. I will post updates as I continue the program. GET THE DVD, its the least you could do for yourself.

I own all of Jillian’s DVDs, so when this one and it’s companion DVD came out, I ordered them immediately.

This one is like “Banish Fat, Boost Metabolism” but the circuits are weights based. At about an hour long, she has you run through 5 exercises 2 times a circuit and most are with weights in hand. Towards the middle, she does matwork for the abs (some with weights!) and in the last circuit she does old school matwork for legs and glutes.

This kicked my butt in a good way. I was sweaty and tired at the end. I completed it, but having to modify some exercises, so now I have something to work towards.

Having owned so many of Jillian’s DVDs, I was worried she would use the same exercises over and over but she keeps it really fresh! She has a lot of exercises I have never seen or done before and all I can say is WOW! She does this exercise called “The Surrender” Oh. My. Goodness. It is super hard and I had to stop. It’s also a little hard on the knees. Again, one of the ones I have to work towards.

I can definitely see this DVD transforming your body and making you more and more toned. A great workout and so worth it!

I tried this video on my cable’s “on Demand” and I will definitely be purchasing it! There is NO WAY that you cannot shape up quickly and completely if you follow this workout! Jillian ROCKS! Her combinations keep you moving and working and sweating, but she has a way of making you able to keep up, through both her motivating talk, as well as the way she combines the moves. She has made me a big fan of circuits – you can endure much more! Her explanations of exactly what muscles you’re targeting REALLY make you motivated to push extra hard, as well as focus on them to really bring on the intensity! I have been doing the 30 day Shred, which I will continue to alternate with this on days that I cannot do an hour, but this is one video I know I will make time for – it is sure to work! *** Okay I’m just updating here after 15 days to say that I am actually seeing changes DAILY in my body, and a 6 pack is being revealed. I can hardly believe my eyes (and trust me, I was a flabby mess, especially my stomach after 2 kids – GROSS!)! I am simply amazed!

I like this workout, especially because it is almost an hour (it’s about 50 minutes not including the final stretch), and some of the moves are tough — however, what drives me nuts is that Jillian does NOT count her reps. If you count them you’ll notice that on one leg she does 12, then the next she will do 15. Then she will do 17 for another move. There is no consistency.

I also don’t think this workout is that killer… I’m not sure what weights everyone else is using, but I use 5lbs for this. On the DVD they only use 3lbs. Maybe I need to increase to 8lbs, but she emphasizes “light weights, high reps.” 3lbs does nothing for me. I have been using the Firm workouts for ages though, so I am used to lifting more weight.

Also, I feel like this is mainly a core workout – it feels like you spend about half the time in plank pose. It would have been nice if there were more lower body work.

For those of you who live in apts and are concerned about jumping moves, the only real jumping is in the warm up for jumping jacks. So I think it’s fine to do this workout if you live in an apt with neighbors.
