30 Day Shred Level 3

While the rest of the world is watching the Olympics (and Britain is celebrating that one bronze...I love it!) I'm here eating a donut (which I'm sure she would disapprove of, but bite me) and writing about Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred and her Level 3 work out. I am officially converted to the Church of Jillian Michaels and worship at her altar. She is a beast.

But the issue I'm having with Level 3 (apart from it kicking my ass, which is a good thing) is that it does a number on my knees, which I've stated before, are my most affected joints. Like, seriously, could you not do a motion where you jump and slam your knees into the ground as hard as possible. No bueno for me. That is going to be my biggest challenge here.

Like her rockstar jumps and when she asks you to do this...hello?:
During this part, in my head I'm all "Superman dat ho!"
What do you guys and gals with knee problems do with this level? I have a feeling my knees aren't going to be too happy with me by the end of this. I know you can "cheat" with the "modified version" (SHOUTOUT TO ANITA!) but that never feels like it's enough for me.

Also that handweight plank thing? WHAT THE HECK IS THAT? It hurts SO BADLY when I'm doing it the "Natalie/Advanced" way, but when I'm on the Anita level, it feels too easy. What do you do?

No happy medium.
But at any rate, Jillian, you have a new devotee. And a new person to give you their money. Let's roll!

I swear I'm going to post other things here than just my girl, Jillian. But right now I'm all into it.
