    Jillian would you make a video about how to get muscles for women while doing workouts only at home without equipment. Actually I’m doing weight training and I’m only using dumbbells. You have done great building this channel

  2. Lana Delic on April 14, 2022 at 5:55 pm

    Thanks, Jillian. I took notes on the muscle groups and how to split the workouts. Very helpful to know but missed the input from your bird 😀

    I was wondering, I am 45 and have sagging skin on thighs above knees. I know part is aging but I don’t want to buy firming cream(which I don’t think works). How do I target to build muscle to tighten skin in that area? Is it too late? 😂 I have always exercised off an on all my life and in and out of gyms.
    Also, how many days a week would it take to see results

    Slower progress is better than getting injured and lose all progress and stun your growth for a longtime. It is a very bad place to be.

    I know Jillian checks comments cause i see her "loving" some comments and even answering them…for some reason though she never answers questions regarding her 30 DAY SHRED workouts 🤔

  7. Aziz Kash on April 14, 2022 at 6:03 pm

    one of the few who know what they are talking about

  8. maremacd on April 14, 2022 at 6:04 pm

    Is that a dickey?

  9. H V on April 14, 2022 at 6:07 pm

    So if I’m not on steroids I shouldn’t train like I am. I understand.

  10. Simone X on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    This woman is so hot!

  11. Malia Reynolds on April 14, 2022 at 6:08 pm

    Man. That scale is taking the wind out of my sails. I gained a pound. I have highly limited my sugar and carb intake for the last 4 weeks. Done 14-16 hr IF and Started doing intermittent HIIT and weight lifting every other day. And I have freaking gained a pound. I am so frustrated. I can’t sleep through the night because I have a baby and I am 40. I am not going to give up, but I wanna cry.

  12. Dear Traveler on April 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Love this!! Hopefully getting a terra gun for Christmas😘

  13. Jennifer on April 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Just wanna say. Shout out to celebrities who still provide content and don’t try to politicize it. I appreciate it Jillian

  14. Elizaveta Labo on April 14, 2022 at 6:09 pm

    Hi, can I do Body pump class 2 times a week and Pilates reformer on alternate dates? Thank you

  15. Steph Scott on April 14, 2022 at 6:10 pm

    I had an “aha” moment here. I feel bad not being able to workout like other people or even my past self now being diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. I have a lot of inflammation and get discouraged if I take a day off training. However, on my good days I feel energetic, focused and have great workouts. Using your app for a few weeks now. I allowed myself to have the “rest days” even though inside I didn’t want to, but it also gave my inflammation a chance to calm down so my next workout I can get right back at it. Great tips Jillian! Down 3 lbs in 2 weeks. Aiming for 1 lb a week until I reach a healthier BMI.

  16. Aanaa on April 14, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    I’m totally straight but I just can’t stop admiring your lovely physique 😍

  17. nikhita sharma on April 14, 2022 at 6:12 pm

    I love your no nonsense approach. Please share 20 to 30 min workout. Miss your circuit training. Can you please share a recent workout with us rather than the old ones.

  18. Amanda G. Dumas on April 14, 2022 at 6:13 pm

    Watching after a complete burnout lol

  19. Chauntelle Wickham on April 14, 2022 at 6:15 pm

    I so wish I could have her as my trainer I would be in shape in no time

  20. FondCello681814 on April 14, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    resume of all Jillian videos. It is not a magic bullet. To lose weight we need to count calories, move more, and be patient, resilient, and have focus.

  21. cf on April 14, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    david goggins would not do it in the way you are suggesting. its not right for everyone. some people are just intense and need to work out as much as they want. you know…you take too long for what it is you are trying to say. you ramble. you can get to the point and in a cleaner more concise way that meets everyones time demands.

  22. Carrie Cheslog on April 14, 2022 at 6:16 pm

    Thank you for sharing your wisdom jillian!

  23. ann browning on April 14, 2022 at 6:17 pm

  24. Isabel Enau on April 14, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    I’m so confused, I just started your 30 day shred and I thought I needed to do a video everyday, so Monday to Friday 🤔

  25. Tess on April 14, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    There was another video of Jillian’s where she was talking about recovery too and how often HIIT exercises should be performed a week. According to her recommendation, I had been over doing HIIT in my workouts. I did 2 weeks straight of Tabata style HIIT with 2 rests days on both of those weeks. I was feeling very tired around 7 pm every night during those 2 weeks. I just happened to be going on vacation to Myrtle beach after those 2 intense weeks too. So, I was able to give my body a 4 day rest. With the exception of the 2 days where the motel elevator kept breaking. I had to climb up and down 5 stories of stairs for 2 days. Everyone was out of breath doing it, but me lol. Great warm up though and my quads felt it lol! Anyways, my body was craving sugar during this whole trip and I decided to give in, which was a little unusual for me. I love sweets and sugar, but I stay away from sweets for the most part and eat fruit instead, have a bowl of sherbert, or chew sugarless gum when I have cravings for sweets.
    So, between Jillian’s recommendations on how often to perform HIIT workouts a week, my exhaustion, and my sudden craving for sugar prompted me to do a Google search to see why I was so fatigued. I am glad I did too. I learned the difference between anaerobic and aerobic exercise and what your body uses for energy while performing them. No wonder I was craving all that sugar. I still managed to keep on my health and weight loss goals. And, what is so EXCITING, I believe, I inadvertently tapped in to my "fitness" high AKA "runners" high. The first day I went back into my workout routine after my 4 day vacation/rest, I decided to do some hi-low aerobics for an hour. About 35 mins in, I was in heaven and felt my fitness high for a few minutes. I am on my light cardio day today again and I want to see what I can do. I miss those highs, they’re the best! Thanks for your advice Jillian! A little advice here and there goes a long way. I will continue to watch your videos for more fitness and health advice. Also, good heads up on the collagen supplement you recommend. It has the added MSM, glucosamine, and chondroitin for joint benefits that is an absolute must for me with my 10 year old knee injury. So, yeah thanks again for such good info!

  26. Christina S on April 14, 2022 at 6:18 pm

    What are your thoughts on things like squat challenges? Minimal rest and working the same muscles for sometimes 5 days straight with progressive reps?

  27. Stacey Kersting on April 14, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    CARBS are what’s killing your progress!

  28. David on April 14, 2022 at 6:20 pm

    This is straight to the point no BS channel 🔥💯💪

  29. CaptainWaffle McNubbin on April 14, 2022 at 6:21 pm

    Where is seven jillie?

  30. Clare Carr on April 14, 2022 at 6:22 pm

    So I hope that you see and can answer this…. Can I do a HIIT treadmill workout on "active recovery" days? I have lost 30 lbs to date by fixing my diet alone and I am just starting to hit the gym again and have 40ish more pounds to go

  31. pixsie doll on April 14, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Jillian your hair and body are always goals 😍

  32. K Roxy on April 14, 2022 at 6:23 pm

    Jillian, shoot your videos in landscape please!

  33. Jill Hummelstein on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    How many days a week do you recommend working out if trying to lose weight?

  34. Darla Zoch on April 14, 2022 at 6:24 pm

    I needed to hear that! Thanks❤️

  35. Tinaaa Angel on April 14, 2022 at 6:26 pm

  36. Emma Slick on April 14, 2022 at 6:27 pm

    My DREAM is to have you yell at me while I struggle with my plank

  37. A T on April 14, 2022 at 6:31 pm

    Yes!!! I went back to lifting two weeks ago and injured my hamstrings and back because I wasn’t ready for the weight. Took a week to recover from it!

  38. Kirri Thulin on April 14, 2022 at 6:36 pm

    I’m not able to sleep well or get enough sleep how can I ensure I lose weight and keep it off

  39. Spiritual vibes school on April 14, 2022 at 6:39 pm

  40. 4jrgolf on April 14, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Subconscious injection bruise 4 o clock of her belly button. Doing a little HGC or HGH fat burning combo?

  41. Stephanie Alonso on April 14, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    Jillian I love you!!! You are my center for health reasoning!!!!

  42. Sneha Jaiswal on April 14, 2022 at 6:44 pm

    Hi Jillian am so glad you brought up Rabdomylosis. It would be really beneficial if you can make a video on the precursors of Rabdomylosis and what’s the best way to identify these trigger.

  43. Anne Marie Glenn on April 14, 2022 at 6:45 pm

    Such good nuggets

  44. robzzzzzz1 on April 14, 2022 at 6:46 pm

    Jillian can you please make a video about the postpartum mom tummy and how after being even 10 lbs lighter than pre pregnancy weight the tummy is still odd shaped and pudgy ! I really love your videos short and to the point thank you

  45. Kelsi Nichols on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Thank you so much for making these videos for free Jillian !!!! I’ve been doing your workouts for years. You are my hero !

  46. Jenna V on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Can someone please tell me how often to do 30 day shred?!? This is confusing me now!

  47. Shiri Gaiger on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

    Do you have full workouts like 1 hour or so?

  48. Shayzmaree Alusa on April 14, 2022 at 6:50 pm

  49. Sharri M on April 14, 2022 at 6:53 pm
