A good variety mix - My Favorite in 10 Minutes Solutions
on May 9, 2013
I get bored easily with workouts, so the 5-day mix works great for me. I'm not a fan of the Cardio Kickboxing segment (just not my thing), but the rest are great.
Amy is a good fitness personality. She's natural on camera and not annoying like some can be.
I'm a big fan of the 10-minute solutions because motivation is often a huge barrier. Even I can get myself to commit to just 10 minutes. Then once you get started, it's not so hard to just do another one. Even in just 10 minutes, she packs in a good workout. My first time through a couple of them, I had to pause for a quick rest. She also looks tired and sweaty as she leads you, so that's a good sign.
My one caution is regarding cardio. I love this mix mostly for strength and core training. I have yet to find a good, short video that really gives a good cardio workout. Granted I don't like the kickboxing. The interval workout does a decent job for cardio, but it still doesn't compare to something like running. Awhile after I got this DVD, my husband and I broke down and bought a used elliptical. There's just no competing with 10 minutes on that machine to keep the heart rate up.
Still, I use this DVD all the time in between elliptical workouts for variety and strength training. Of all the 10 minutes solutions I've tried (about 5 of them), this is the one I bought and like best.
