My 30 day shred dvd and my Dumbbells arrived today. I'll be starting tomorrow as I'm really busy today and I have a weird thing about starting things on a Monday. Anyone one else starting around the same time?!

Also, do you/are you planning to have rest says? I'm thinking about alternating C25K and 30 day shred but I'm not sure.. Opinions?

    I love 30 day shred - Its a really good full body workout - the first time I did it I alternated between the shred and a couch-5k training program with sundays rest - it was a bit hard to maintain after a while (because then it was like 2 months of dedication) but definetly worth it. The workout it a lot of fun -although I struggeled so much the first time round :p maybe I should try again with you :)

    I'm in! I just started level 1 of the shred yesterday. I'm taking rest days on Sundays because I work 12-hour shifts that day, but also I think it's good to give your body a break. I'll be rotating other workouts too and adding extra weight training at the gym throughout the week.

    I'm just going to add 3DS as circuit training to MFP and see what calories it gives me.

    Yes! We can do this! I think a rest day is definitely necessary!! Remember to measure and weigh yourself so you can track your progress after you've completed it!

    What luck! I was just thinking about this. I am going to try to start tomorrow, and just go day by day without a rest day. If I rest I tend to stop all together.

    I am in my finals weeks for college, but after I survive it... I think I may stack swimming and extra muscle workouts on top of this. I really want to go back to school a bit more fit [:

    Sounds like a plan!! I'm going to have Sunday as my rest day so I have something to look forward to lol. I'm the opposite, If I don't have a rest day I tend to give up as I know I've got to do this for however many more weeks! If I survive today's workout, I'll let you know how it goes!

    Well, that's day 1 level 1 out of the way. I'm knackered, can't believe how unfit I am!! I was shaking (and still am!) halfway through, my legs are like jelly. I hope this gets easier soon.

    Did first workout yesterday, about to start second in a minute. Will be doing the 30DS for the straight 30 days, possibly taking one day off in between levels as well as I do a 5 mile walk/jog three times a week. I need to do something everyday or else I'll convince myself to just not do it or make excuses and that in turn effects my eating habits

    You can do it! I used 5 lb weights on the first day too, which was OK until the side lunge/arm raise things - I couldn't get them all the way up in the last few reps. Tonight is day 2 for me, see if it's any easier (or harder from being sore, ha)..
