Jillian Michaels 30 day shred level 1 first ten days. Level 2 next ten days, level 3 last ten days. Keep going with other Jillian Michaels workouts.
Step 1 Before you start Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred, take your measurements. You'll be glad you did later. Measure each arm (thickest part), each thigh (thickest part), upper waist (smallest) and lower waist (at your belly button), and your hips (biggest part). Write this info down, or put it in Excel so you can come back to it after 30 days. This work-out will probably cause you to lose weight, about 10 lbs, but that can vary.

However, that said, this work-out still kicked my butt, and I thought I was in pretty good shape. That's how hard core it is, but very effective.
Step 5 Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred is designed in three levels to be done over the course of 30 days. Level 1 of the workout should be done for 10 days, Level 2 for 10, and Level 3 for 10. When you finally can complete Level 3 of this fitness program, stay there, or mix it up every once in a while. When I started Level 1, the first three days, I could not do everything.
