It focuses on muscle splits on whether they are push or pull muscles and if you follow the plan as suggested on the program you will take Sunday (or one day) off. Push muscles are shoulders, triceps, quads and naturally chest and pull muscles are gluten, hamstrings, biceps and back. On Monday push, Tuesday pull, Wednesday cardio, Thursday push, Friday pull, Saturday push muscles and you will take Sundays off.
You also get a detailed meal plan that you need to follow and includes healthy recipes and ideas, tips, information on different foods and nutritional values when you’re following this awesome workout program to achieve a much better body in a short time and to maintain that physique. The science, methodology and logic behind the Bodyshred program is also explained by Jillian clearly. So what SHRED method is basically 30 minutes of your time daily + a 3-2-1 interval format and 10 modern and innovative fitness principles and these modalities include High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT), Dynamic Dumbbell Training, Metabolic Constant Training, Peripheral Heart Action (PHA), Super Setting and Mega Setting, Plyometrics, Progressive Intensity Leveling, Combo Lift / Complexes / Shredders, Bodyweight Training (BWT) and Movement Possiblity / 3D Training. 3-2-1 Interval Format means 3 mins of muscle conditioning and resistance training, 2 mins of HIIT and Cardio and 1 min of active recovery. And with all these workouts and modalities you will successfully hit each muscle on your body and you will gain great flexibility, endurance, agility, power, speed, stability and strength and there will be no breaks in this half hour workout and zero repetitions. Please note that it is quite different to Jillian’s Body Revolution program, with small similarities of course but totally different moves.
Keep in mind that Bodyshred is some heavy, high impact and high intensity workout plan and after you complete this program all the others will appear easy and slow and you should get it if you’re up for it, to be able to achieve the excellence and not just ‘OK’ results and naturally it is not for those with any kind of physical restrictions including back problems. A few customers commented that they followed the whole program as hard as it is but not the food plan and they still managed to lose inches off their body and to gain balance and core strength. If you’d like to take a closer look on each section and much more detail on the whole program, you can do so through the links on this page. We don’t really have anything bad to say about the program, the reviews we found are mostly positive and it is recommended for those that are up for some serious challenge and are able to follow the whole thing including the meal plans, not the very weak hearted but there are easier versions of each exercise as the person on the right shows the easier and the right shows the tougher version- so you have your modifiers too. Forr those that do not know already, your body is mostly what you eat, exercise is definitely very important but what you eat matters even more so, so keep that in mind when you’re working out with the Bodyshred method and follow the nutrition and food guidelines too.
