Shred Level 3 Results

Well I finally made it…I finished level 3 of the 30 Day Shred.  OK, I guess I didn’t officially finish it, since I quit yesterday which was day 8, but my right shin/leg is aching and has been getting worse everyday.  I’m thinking it might be all the plyometric work involved in Level 3, so I decided today would be my rest day and tomorrow I will start something new.

Here are my numbers from Level 3.

Weight loss for Level 3…..down 1.6 lbs

Inches lost during Level 1…..10.5 inches

  • Bust…down 1.5 inches
  • Lower Abdomen…down 2.5 inches
  • Lower Hips/Hiney….down 1.25 inches
  • Knees…down 1.75 inches

Hmmm…let’s see what I can I say about level 3. I did get winded more often than in the other levels (duh it’s the last level) and ended up taking more breaks, especially during the walking push-ups and jumping pliats.  I really felt the pain during the combo arm/leg lift in plank pose things, whatever the heck they are called.  Normally ended up doing one regular set and one set on my knees.  I ended up doing all the jumping jacks without weights once I realized (which was quickly) that my legs move quicker than my arms…and I always was banging the weights into my thighs.

I did notice more knee and lower leg pain more during this level than in any of the other levels combined.  Thinking its due to the combined jump moves and maybe before the jacks and knee lifts and butt kicks weren’t as high impact as the stuff in level 3.  I will do it again and love the way it made me feel, stronger from the inside kinda feeling that I haven’t had in a long long time.

Again, did this level in less than 2 weeks, so the weight loss is small but again had a big loss of inches which is wonderful!  Kind of confused how I lost inches on my knees when they ached so much…maybe it was the lack of fat that made them hurt so much more!  Haha!

Here are the pics from the start of the 30 Day Shred to the end….I’ve still got jiggle…but there’s a lot less of it thanks to Jillian!
