I think I am brave enough to give this a go ... and it's just over a month till I wear a bikini on holiday.

What do I need? And how much space in my living room?

Thanks

Trainers
Weights, (Argos do a useful set of 0.5, 1, and 1.5 kg weights for about 15 quid I think) but you can start with baked bean tins or 2 x 500ml water bottles.
A mat if you're on a hard surface otherwise carpet is fine.
About the space of a single bed is ideal, but you can get away with less as long as you can lie down flat and strath your arms out to each side.

No. You can use water bottles or tinned food as weights initially. I did.

I do shred barefoot. I now have weights but have regularly been shredding for a year. Not continuously but I would do shred twice (2 months) and then break and just go swimming for a few weeks and then start another Jillian Michaels programme.

It works. It's awesome. It's hard the first 3 days and then it gets easier and you start to see really motivating results.

grin to Tena Lady - it's those sumo squat type things in level 3 that scare me!
