This is just as good as 10 minute solution Blast off belly fat - in fact if you alternate between the two DVDs you will get a great selection of easy to follow ab workouts. The instructor is very friendly and encouraging. I never knew there were so many different ways to work that flabby tummy but without doing endless boring crunches. Theres no doubt about it - you do have to work extremely hard, but you will feel the results afterwards when your tummy starts complaining! There are five ten minute sections: crunch-free abs, yoga abs, bikini belly, ab & waist definer and sexy,sporty abs. In fact, in the sexy sports section she tells you which individual sports would benefit from doing the particular exercise in question.

There are loads of new moves I've never done before, and there are modifications throughout so you can work at your own level. I felt my tummy was worked from all angles, particularly the obliques - plus I felt my back being strengthened. I feel more than qualified to say that this DVD is good - having had two 11lb children I know all about having a fat, stretched tummy with an overhanging belly roll. I know I will never have a lovely flat tummy like the instructor, but sticking to one or two programmes every day I feel and look better and I have improved my whole tummy area. The overhang has considerably reduced and all of my stomach muscles are toned. Little and often has worked for me!

This is the first workout DVD I've ever owned. After every Christmas, DVD sections are stacked with minor celeb workouts, and it all put me off. That and the, ya know, having to workout. But, as it happens, it's not so bad, even for a total novice.

The DVD is split into 5 sections:

Crunch-Free Abs - this involves aerobic stretches on a mat. The exercises start off simply, and each set has options to make it more strenuous for more intermediate exercisers

Yoga Abs - balance moves of a fairly intermediate level

Bikini Belly - this is aerobics of the up and at 'em kind. She teaches a couple of moves at a time, and strings them all together, ending up with 15 different moves, and it's definitely not for beginners. I got lost and tangled and just wanted to get a plate of chips. Even she was sweating by the end and, actually, with a bit of practise, this will be my favourite section as you can truly feel it working as you're working

Ab and Waist Definer - more aerobic stretching on a mat. These are more complicated than the Crunch-Free Abs moves and require a lot more balance and a higher level of fitness.

Sexy, Sporty Abs - done on a mat, a huge variety of crunches... who knew there were so many types?! This is the most advanced of all the sections, so if you're a beginner, too, it will take an awful lot of practise. (That's probably the point, really. Uff.)

The DVD gives you the option of doing them all in one 50-minute go (!!!), one at a time, or it allows you to programme which ones you want to do and which order... I'm not sure if that's standard practise for workout videos but it was a brilliant touch, as it keeps it interesting and, presumably, works different muscles in different ways.

This is the fourth 10 minute solution dvd I own. I agree also that is a great addition to the blast off belly fat dvd.
As a guy I was looking for a dvd to work off and tighten my midsection. I was drawn to the idea of the 10 minute workouts.
Variation on working your abs is again the theme on this dvd.
I would say to those who have never bought the 10 minute solution series before, don't assume the 10 minutes is going to be easy. They are not. I consider myself reasonably fit and I found these routines do work you. They are not for totally unfit beginners. However, having said that one can build up to the full repetitions on the routines.
I would agree that the producers of these dvds seem to insist the Instructors smile frequently. Its unnatural. I found the lady on the 10 Minute Solution - Blast Off Belly Fat [DVD] handled this the most gracefully so far on the 4 I've bought.
So if you want some really different ab workouts try this one out.
Although I don't do the routines at home I've taken bits out of the routines and built them into my gym workout. I find it easy to work out at the gym. The great thing is that there is so much variation especially if you get some of the others.
As far as I'm concerned abs are abs whether on a guy or a lady. So some of you men out there try these dvds out they're great.

I ordered this for a friend who has 2 young children as well as a job, so therefore can't fit gym visits into her schedule. Therefore she has a depressing (to me anyway) number of keep-fit DVDs.
However, she says QUICK TUMMY TONERS beats them all...

What makes QUICK TUMMY TONERS different from the many over fitness DVDs on the market is that there are 5 different work out sections (crunch-free abs, yoga abs, bikini belly, ab & waist definer and sexy, sporty abs), each one coming in at 10 minutes. So if she only has 10 minutes to spare she can pick a section, or if she happens to have longer 2 sections etc...
It keeps it fresh and interesting, because she can pick which sections to do and which order she'd like to do them in. My friend personally recommends the YOGA ABS to start as the basic moves you learn are great for warming up. She also says that the sections are in order of beginner to the more challenging.

The final reason for the 5 star rating is the instructor. She's cheery and remains upbeat throughout the DVD, which gives the follower at home more confidence and the desire to push themselves.
