Jillian Michael Killer Butt and Thighs Review


This workout is worth every penny. It is not only working your buns and thighs but your core and arms too.

I give this workout a 10

She also adds some Yoga type moves and uses weights for the advanced so you never get bored. Plus she brings in some "old school" moves and some 30 Day Shred moves.

  1. I was excited to receive my preorder of the Buns and Thighs DVD yesterday because I had just finished Ripped. I intend to do this DVD for a month, probably 10 days each level as you would with her Shred video. Level one was DIFFICULT, but I got through it with ease because I was primed by working with Ripped in 30.

  2. Italia,
    Thank you for leaving a comment I feel that is a good way to do the program. I will be doing this again this month.
    Keep me posted on results :-)
