Basically, Ripped in 30 is quite similar to other notorious workouts like 30 Day Shred and Body Revolution of Jillian Michaels, but it cannot be called less effective. The principle here is again: 3 minutes of strength, 2 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of press. As already mentioned in other reviews this interval approach is very effective for losing weight and training your figure in just half an hour daily!

Brief workout description of Jillian Michaels Ripped in 30:

The course consists of 4 trainings with increasing difficulty level. The first week you perform a simple level, with the second begins a more serious load while in the third and fourth week you better prepare your prayers. A month of this intense workout with Jillian will help you lose weight and transform your body remarkably.

Based on my experience I think the program is perfect for those who have completed the “Beginner Shred” or “30 Day Shred”, but don’t want to go to more complex trainings. Since the program lasts only half an hour you have plenty of time to add this training into your daily plans. Furthermore the gradual increase of load during each course assumes a gentle start into this kind of sports and is perfect for beginners.

As already seen in other videos by Jillian the exercises are shown by two supporters: one demonstrates a simple version and the second one is more advanced. Jillian recommends doing this training 5-6 times a week and for this workout you just need two sets of dumbbells (light and heavy), but you can choose the weight depending on your physical fitness. Based on the experience of me and other fans I can recommend buying 2 to 5 lbs. (1.5 and 4 kg) weights , which are considered to be optimal here.
