5 workouts and only 10 minutes each - no excuses!, 19 Jun 2011
5 workouts and only 10 minutes each - no excuses! Mix and match to suit your time constraints or just do your favourite ones or can mix and match with your other DVDs. Do all 5 and you have a great whole body workout. Each workout includes a quick warm up and cool down to suit the type of exercises in that section.
The workouts are low impact and suitable for nearly beginners however there is some tricky choreography in places. Keep at it though as you'll feel so good when you can get the hang of it. If you are not used to following fitness DVDs you may struggle with this to begin with.
Although low impact, the routines keep you moving and raise your heart rate to a comfortable level. The workouts have a `dancey' feel but only because the instructor is a dancer and it is all very smooth rather than it being dance moves made into a fitness routine.
The instructor, Jennifer Galardi, has such an engaging personality you can't help but like her as she encourages you through all the moves. The instructions are clear, left and rights match and she adds to the routine one move at a time. Each workout is so enjoyable that you barely notice that 10 minutes have gone by and you actually want to do another section........then another....and before you know it you've done the whole bunch.
It is pretty difficult to describe the routines as some of the moves I have not seen before or there are just too many words to describe what's going on. But it is fun.
I don't have anything negative to say about this one, although I would prefer it to be a bit harder: I use 2-3 workouts as a warm up to a long session. I love the ab section - all done standing up and really focuses on your core. I try to do this 4 times a week - come on, it's only 10 minutes to squeeze into your day. You can do it!
What you get:
Narrow & wide marching, hip rotations, side steps, walks, hop & skip, grapevine, leg pumps
Side steps, knee lifts, digs, stomps, toe taps, wide marching, jump - and other moves I can't describe
Fat Burning Party
Side taps, boxing slides, kick backs, knee raises, triple steps, marching
Butt & Thigh Blaster
Plies, ham string curls, heel digs, short lunges, side squats, knee raises, leg lifts, wide side step
Rib cage rolls & shifts, core squeeze, lower ab scoops, side stretches, trunk twists
Where do those 10 minutes go?
Low impact but raises heart rate
Mix and matching forever more
