Ten minutes is a manageable target time for me. I used the ten minute XBX exercises years ago and found them to be just the right length of time for me! I found a PDF copy online of the program I used years ago! www.inspire.com.ve/pdf/rcaf_xbx.pdf My chiropractor suggested replacing the "toe touching" with "toe raises", and the "sit ups" with "curl ups". This makes the program a lot safer, since we now know that some of these "older exercises" can cause muscles injury or strain. For the "Leg-Overs" exercise, he recommends the "rear leg pull", which is also called "the donkey-kick": (see the top left exercise). shop.algra.com/osb/itemdetails.cfm?I D= 32 I LOVE theses fitness posters! shop.algra.com/osb/showitem.cfm?Cate go ry=79 A lot of fitness centers use them, as well as schools! :)

This is a great team to be on. It's nice to be reminded that every 10 minutes counts. Some days you can do 30 minutes; but when you can't (because of time or physical limitations), at least get up and take the dog out for 10 minutes.

Glad to join all of you. My weight has been decreasing just fine. I am 65 years old. I know I need to do exercises. However I start slowly because of health issues. Today the weather outside was nice. I live in the Chicago area. I was able to take my dog for a 30 minute walk Waiting to read others progress. Hope for better weather!.
