Question

Dear 30 Day Shredders,
(I'm talking to you: That is all, The McCradys, C, Mrs. D, Red high Heels, etc.)


I know that there are like zillions of bloggers who love this video, but I have one question for you: Is this video appropriate for someone (me) who lives on the 3rd floor of her apartment, or is there a lot of jumping around that would shake my apartment disturb my neighbors? Advice?

Thanks,
Wannabe Shredder
P.S. Like it says on the cover, did you lose 20 pounds in 30 days???

I am so right there with you! I am in an apartment and my exercise is very limited.... I mean I know that I wouldn't want a herd of elephants stomping around in the apartment above me!

Oh apartment living....

I have this video and I live on the second floor of my apartment. I do it right when I get home because I figure 20 minutes of a little noise at 6pm is way better than at 830 pm.

there are things like jumping jacks and fake jump roping but they are only for like 2 mins at a time. You shouldn't be making too much noise doing the ab work and the lunges and stuff like that you know. I would say go for it and don't do it after 9pm. Good luck! :)

I'm in an apartment too girl. Although, I don't have anyone below me, but I think you'll be okay. Unless you do jumping jacks/jumping rope with lead feet, I suppose no one would hear you. Oh, and just don't drop your hand weights on the floor. Go for it. I haven't been as faithful with it as I should be, but it totally kicks your butt. Granted, I'd look a little freaky if I lost 20 lbs, I definitely think it helps shred the 'extra stuff' most of us have! :) Let me know what you decide!

i agree with everyone that you should just go for it as long as it's not late at night or early in the morning :)

as for weight... i've only lost 3.5 pounds in 20 days but i have skipped a few days and i've cheated a little with my eating. i sure WISH i'd lost 20 pounds already...

The Shred is surprisingly not as much jumping as other videos I have done. I'm on the 3rd floor of our apt too and I usually work out after 9a.m. or 7p.m. which I don't think should bother the people below me and they haven't complained and I've been doing the video for almost 20 days now.

Totally unrelated: in college my boyfriend (pre-Hubs) danced for STOMP and Tap Dogs. He was SUCH a jerk and thought it was funny to practice on his tile kitchen floor at all hours of the day...

So, I just wanted to thank you for being considerate to your neighbors, even though you're teeny tiny and I don't they'd hear you!
