Whew! I just finished Level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. I won’t lie: I’m pretty scared to see what Level 3 will be like.
When I completed Level 1 I felt like I had totally killed the workout; I thought that I was ready for whatever I would face in the next set of exercises. I was wrong and have definitely struggled over the last ten days to build myself up to the highest degree of intensity.
I would say that today I did it, but that the video very nearly killed me rather than vice versa. I paused the DVD for a few seconds a couple of times to make sure that I didn’t miss out on anything by pausing to catch my breath, and I had to take a really quick break in the middle of two of the harder plank exercises. I did, however, do everything with high energy and on the maximum difficult level. Overall, I’m pretty proud.
Like I said though, I am sort of dreading what Level 3 will bring. The one saving grace that I can think of right now is that at least I will be starting it back at the beginner’s stage and working my way up to the big, intense moves. I’m pretty sure that if I felt like I had to jump right into the maximum output stage that I would be ‘accidentally’ dropping the DVD off a ten story building tonight.
