    Oh damn!!  That much have been tough.  Make sure you are consuming enough protein and keep up the stretching.

      LOL Oh my God, poor you! I would take tomorrow off since you did both today. You'll likely have a hard go of it anyway but it's important to let your muscles rest in between workouts (one reason for the alternating) otherwise they just get exhausted. And yes, LOTS of protein when weight training...I would suggest buying some whey isolate protein powder (aim for around 30 grams protein per scoop)...if it's whey isolate it should be fairly low cal (normally around 150 cal per scoop) and low carbs. Don't worry about the 150 calories...because the protein is so high, the majority of those calories are usable and your muscles will need it right after a workout (I drink mine in the change rooms right after).

       

      Good for you though!!! Keep up the good work!

        im doing the jillian michaels 30 day shred and she says you should use both upper and lower body so you burn more calories from your workout. if you so squats with weights in your hand and then do presses you are burning more calories. doing just presses you are not working as hard. your whole body will be sore but sore means your working those muscles.  i always thought you should alternate but if you want to burn you should do both.

          I too do Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. The first time, you will definitely get sore. After the 4th day, not much. I agree with the ladies that you should not workout the total body in one day. I alternate my workouts between Insanity, jillian michaels and jackie warner. It's a great way to keep the body working and burning calories. I have read and agree that if you stick to the same routine, your body will hit a plateau and you will no longer see results. Switch it up between workouts.

            Maybe with her DVDs this is true - I dunno because I've never done them so can't really say. But with weight lifting most trainers will tell you to alternate. Theoretically, you can do both if you want but I'm freakin' exhausted after doing my workouts so don't think I could do both upper and lower in the same day, lol. Plus, it forces you to rest your muscles in between and not do two days in a row...rest is very important in weight lifting because your muscles take this time to repair (which is what causes them to get stronger and burn more fat).

              The other thing too is you need to be sure you're working the opposite muscles in each workout (so for example, if you do abs one day then in the same day you need to do lower back)...generally if you alternate between upper and lower body you ensure you do this. So I don't really see the point of doing squats (a mainly quad/glute workout) and then dumbell presses (a shoulder/arm workout)...unless you mean leg presses in which case you're just reworking the same muscle group. Hmmm. Anyhoo, who am I to argue with Jillian Michaels? I just know that what my trainer has given me is working very well, very quickly and based on all the weight training research I've done, his theroies are well supported whether you;re a man looking to build or a woman looking to tone. Not everything works for everyone though.

                You both are correct.  Do not try to compare different workouts.

                 

                Shannon's workout was created specifically for an upper and lower body day.  It was setup that way on purpose and is beneficial for what she is doing. 

                 

                Doing a full body workout which includes supersets (doing exercises together or back to back) is something completely different and is beneficial as well.  It is just a different approach.

                 

                Like I said there a a million different types of workouts out there so do not try to compare apples to oranges.

                  The way the 30 Day Shred works is you do a 20 minute workout working both legs and arms and then a little bit of ab work.

                  It's three minutes of legs and arms — for example, in level one, the first set is push ups followed by squats with arm presses. So you do one arm move for 30 seconds, followed by the compound movement for one minutes and then repeat. The it's onto two minutes of cardio, then into one minute of abs. There are sets to the entire workout.

                  It is a killer workout, I had great results when I was doing it regularly.
