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.

If you have never seen a 10 Minute Solution first let me explain the concept which that we all have 10 minutes in a day to set aside for ourselves. Whilst that's true based on my experience it takes more than 10 minutes even if you aim for once a day, you first need to set aside the time, have the right clothes, be in the right frame of mind, turn on the DVD player/TV, and, then put everything away - so effectively its more like 30 minutes which is a longer slot of most people's day. I have other DVDs in this series and I felt this one was the least successful for me because as a beginner the sections are not progressive and assume a certain level so I lost enthusiasm. There are 5 separate 10 minute sections ordered in bad to good from my perspective; Yoga Abs (I didn't like this section, the movements are complex and without a teacher I think it would be easy to not effectively hold the position and therefore be much less effective); Bikini Belly (a cardio section which I didn't feel was suited to the 10 minute principle, not sure in a living room most people can hop around that much); Sexy Sporty Abs (some useful parts but too much head/neck crunching and some too difficult moves); Ab and Waist Definer (found this one useful with lots of twisting movements) and lastly Crunch Free Abs (this was the most useful as it was relatively easy to follow and did not involve any neck crunching). Other points, the music is annoying and there is noway of turning it down or off, the instructor is enthusiastic and encouraging. However, despite all the positives for someone who is starting from almost zero I could only effectively use two of the sections, it did give me the idea of going to stretching classes and I believe if I stick to them I think this DVD could be useful as a complementary tool however I am not sure it works as a standalone suite.

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.
