Level 3: 30 Day Shred

I completed my 10 days of level 1 and level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. Inevitably, it was time for level 3.

I was a little scared going into it, not really knowing what to expect. My hubby joined me for my first day of level 3 on Sunday.

There are some difficult moves on this level. There are a few that I still have to do the modified versions of. I just don’t have the strength to do a full pushup yet, no matter how many times I’ve tried! I know I will get there someday.

Overall, it’s another fun workout but it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I almost feel like I am getting a better workout at levels 1 and 2, but maybe it’s because of some of the modifications I am making on level 3.

As of Wednesday, I have exactly one week left of this! There’s no way I will fail now!

I’m trying to think of a new challenge for March. I want to continue to up my workouts, but not necessarily workout every single day. I get sore and I know my body needs time to rest. Any suggestions for me?

  1. Way to go on your shred!!!! Have you tried cycling? Yoga? Pilates? Run/ Walk? Those are always good workouts. I think you are right, your body does need time to rest.

  2. way to go shredding is soooo hard
    you could try doing 1 or 2 at a time
    or get a biggest loser workout and start with level one on there and then up it to 1 and 2
    they have 3 level ones as well
    im so proud of you

  4. Good for you that you are nearly done and already planning for your next phase.

    I find that two days off per week works well for me. I work out intensely on the other five days, but I find that I need that rest and my body responds well to it. You should have no problem taking a day or two off each week. Everyone is different so you may need to experiment with how much intensity vs. rest you need.

    Maybe you can try some hard core workouts like P90X?
