I felt the same way after level2... I figured out I was doing a lot of the stuff wrong kinda... The planks are easy to do wrong, if your hands are not directly below your shoulders on the ground you arent in the correct position and you aren't working the muscles you are supposed to.

 

also in the part where you do squats front then back, you have to make sure your knees don't go past your toes or you won't be working the muscles in your legs just injuring your knees.

 

Level 1 kicked my butt everyday I was almost scared to go to level 2, then i felt the same way about going up to level 3... I'm doing level 3 now, but most of the modified stuff, it's kinda like level 2.5 i guess :)

 

SO just make sure you concentrate on your form and level 2 will surely start to hurt as much as level 1

Thanks for the tip about level two. I think I'm just about ready to move up to it so I'll watch my form when I do (maybe I'll get FI to watch me to make sure I'm doing it right). I'm a bit scared of level two. Level one has gotten a lot easier than it was but it's still pretty hard.

 

Is anyone noticing a difference at all in how they look/ their weight while they use this DVD? I think I'm seeing a change now- especially around my arms and my abs. Things seem tighter somehow.

I did this workout series for about a month and a half before our wedding. and def noticed a difference. I lost about 10 pounds and a jean size! And I def felt more toned and good about myself.

 

Im still doing it, I just need to get into it more (now since its after the wedding)

After my first week of doing the dvd, I lost 2 pounds. Not a whole lot (could be fluctuation in water weight?). I'll weigh again this weekend and see if more weight came off. If so, I'll contribute it to the Shred.

I just started this work out today. With a little less than 2 months to go, I need to turn it up a notch. The level 1 workout seemed failry easy even though I was sweating quite a bit. A few hours later, and i'm starting to feel a little sore.

 

Will try to do everything....hoping to loose the last 10 pounds!!

Ughh... I tried level two and it's pretty hard. I'm really uncoordinated so that doesn't help. I'm not too sore from it, though, but I'm wondering if I wasn't doing it completely right. I think I'll stick with level two but maybe alternate it with level one every once in a while until I get the hang of it.
