30 Day Shred update: Level 2 (who needs arms, anyway?)

I’ve never lost all feeling in my arms before. Until now.

Level 2 of Jillian Michael’s “30 Day Shred” dvd is widely considered to be the most challenging level and I was nervous about attempting it during my fitness odyssey.

Compared to Level 1, it was definitely more challenging. But by being harder, it also feels more rewarding. The part which I found the hardest was the emphasis on planks.

Not those kind of planks

A lot of the moves were done while in a plank position, which is incredibly hard on the arms after a while. For someone who has the upper body strength of a kitten, this was an issue.

It does get easier over time and (like Level 1) I think this is a well laid-out workout which is veery efficient in its use of time.

Even if this...

 

...eventually turned into this.
