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 â€” 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.

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.
