A collection of five ten-minute workouts specifically designed to target your abdominal area and give you a flat, firm tummy. Workouts are: 'Crunch-free Abs', 'Yoga Abs', 'Bikini Belly', 'Ab and Waist Definer' and 'Sexy, Sporty Abs'.
It's a great product and Jessica Smith is really personable. She is very good instructor with great intuition (just as you want to stop she says 'I know you've got one more in you). She's peppy without being annoying albeit she sometimes isn't 100% clear in the small details about when you lift a foot or the tiny things, although you can catch up immediately anyway. As for the exercises, I love crunch-free abs because it's enjoyable and varied. In fact, she creates a lot of variety in her routines. The only one that disappoints is 'Yoga Abs' because you spend half of the routine doing 'Downward dog' and 'plank position' which gets old pretty fast.
When I first started, I'd do one routine a day and found 'Bikini Belly' and 'Sporty, Sexy Abs' the hardest, but within 1-2 weeks, I improved so much that I could do all 5 exercises in one day. This DVD, before I changed my diet, helped me to lose 4 lbs in a week. If you're not very active or fit, it's a great starting point, but if you're more advanced, I'd recommend an upgrade to Jillian Michaels. Now THAT'S when I got really toned.
10 minute chunks you can fit into your day. Some are hard going, some are easier, but they all work and they're all fun. The instructor gives clear tuition for each move and is upbeat and motivating. I did at least two segments a day for three months and went from weeble-shape to flat, toned stomach. Super-effective and genuinely fun to do.
Would recommend this to anyone wanting to tone up their tummy! The 10 min sections are fab as you can do as little or as much as you can fit in at any time. Another good one in this collection of dvds :)
It is hard for beginners however it is easy to follow instructions. After a week you will definetely see the difference. I do whole work outs once a week. Rest of the week, I use other DVD's of 10 minute solution.
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!
