As someone working 12-14 hours a day sometimes, i love the idea of this workout. The way it groups excercise and goes through different muscle groups including isometric and dynamic resistance is quite clever. Also liked the diet plan (if you don't mind adapting it, its just about affordable too) and the option to use the bands for cardio (I could in 1 room but sadly not where i was working out most of the time). Space wise, if you can lie on the floor and stretch your arms out above your head, then to either side, there is room for the workouts, though you may have to move about a bit.
I used it for a month, twice a day most days, some days once, some days 3 times. I managed to lose about a stone and 3 inches off my waist.
1) only 5 workouts can get a little repetitive after 30 days.
2) no upper body focus as standard, most guys wanna focus on this area and a lot of girls want to tone their triceps, while it does include there areas in total body, other areas get a full focus 10 minutes.
3) The workouts are about 10 minutes not including warm up and cool down, give yourself 15 minutes per workout and you'll be more realistic.
1) It really works.
2) Not numbered reps, you do your best.
3) Adaptations on most exercises to make it easier/harder.
4) Easy to follow, I don't wanna have to think about my routine and its nice to see its wel thought out.
5) Adaptable and simple eating plan.
6) Tony Horton is a good balance between motivation, enthusiastic, cheesy and self-depreciating.
7) You'll get vsible results in 5-10 days if you start as unfit and complete 2-3 workouts a day while strictly following the plan.
hope this helps.
