4.0 out of 5 stars A fun way to add cardio into your workout programme, 11 July 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 10 Minute Solution - Fat Blasting Dance Mix [DVD] (DVD)
I really wanted to add more fun into my cardio programme (Mel B's Totally Fit, running, walking and swimming) and as I'm a big fan of the 10 Minute Solution Pilates DVDs (I have 5 from the collection that I alternate through the week), I was searching for a 10MS dance workout. I'm looking forward to trying out the '10 Minute Solution: Hip Hop Dance Mix' but as that's not available until August, I bought this one in order to practice and I'm so glad I did!

There are 5, 10 minute workouts, the first 3 are cardio/dance based and the final 2 have a dance feel but are concentrated on target toning the lower body and abs. All the sections are done standing, so no need for a mat, but your carpet may not appreciate the wear and tear from doing the boxing slide move!

I found some of the moves a little tricky, but I love a challenge and it's been a real boost to conquer the dance routines with perseverance. Even if you get a little lost, just keep moving and with practice, you will get there. The instructor is friendly and explains the moves very clearly without distracting from the workout (you are moving for every second of each 10 minute sequence), smiley without being annoying, however it took me a few sessions to fall in line with the way she cues the next move whilst doing the current one - I kept jumping ahead, but I've now got that sorted.

The 3 dance workouts are a lot of fun with the first one 'Simple Slimmer' being the easiest and the remaining 2 working at a more intermediate level. I really enjoyed the lower body routine as the lunges and squats are given a dance twist, but the abs workout I've yet to master, as although the instructor and her back up team (2 ladies) wear ab revealing tops so you can see just how to do the rotating isolation move, I found it quite tricky to be totally sure I'm getting it right, but as this is such a great workout, I'm pretty determined to keep trying until I get this down. I did like the inclusion of the side lunges and waist twists and overall, I was surprised at how much of a sweat I worked up just combining the 3 dance sections.

In summary, a fun way to do cardio that will really help to burn fat. The 10 minute sections means you can fit in working out around your schedule and an added bonus is having a laugh breaking out your craziest moves in the comfort of your own home with no one watching!
