Anyone Tried 10-Minute Solution DVDs?

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I ordered a couple because they were really cheap (less than £4) at Play.com. The first one arrived this morning, called Dance Off Fat Fast. It consists of five 10-minute dance workouts that are based on really varied influences - retro, ballet and modern disco to name three.

For someone doing a 10-min exercise streak, these are ideal.

I had already done 30 mins with Leslie, and three Just Dance songs this morning, but couldn't resist giving this DVD a go after a bit of a rest, so I did two sections.

It is really good fun! I did the first two sections, and was sweating nicely by the end. It is deceptively hard work, specially the ballet one, I'm guessing - that will be murder on my legs! If I can pluck up the courage to try it. LOL

The nicest thing about this DVD, is that you can just do one section, or play the whole lot, or mix and match them to suit your dance style, the amount of exercise time you have, or to target a specific area of your body.

Liking! :-) Hope the other one is as good when it arrives.

And talking of DVDs, I've been working my way through the Leslie Sansone WATP 7 Day Calorie Blast. One a day since it arrived. So I've done 4 of the 7 so far. Tomorrow and Thursday should be interesting as the next two workouts are targetted at the upper and lower body respectively. And I notice that she is lying on a mat in one of the pics. Hmmm... Hoping that is just for the stretching, cos you know how much I love being on the floor! LOL

In the meantime, her DVDs are harder work than the online stuff! Which is a good thing... Honest! :-) My hips and thighs are really feeling it, but in a good way - I hope! LOL

Yesterday I tested whether I could exercise and then do a long walk. Turns out I could! 30 min Leslie Sansone, and three Just dance songs, followed by a 12,000 step walk to Tara's college for a meeting, then town and finally Waitrose before going home.

Total step count 17572!

It was a good day. :-)

AND, I managed an hour of exercise today.

    Not tried these Lex, I love my Rosemary Conley and I have Coleen Nolan to Get Physical with.
    I've got others but haven't used them for a while- they only come out when the weather is so awful I can't get a walk in. emoticon Enjoy the new one! emoticon

    Not tried these ones but I enjoy my Mr Motivator one I have one that has 6 x10 min sessions and you just choose which ones you want to do . I have only done the walking ones from you tube but did quite enjoy them. You are doing great with all tour fitness mins no wonder you are shrinking. emoticon

    I have the Ten Minute Solution Knockout Body! Kickboxing of course, using weighted gloves. I just love it! Has 50 minutes of 10 minute segments. One is abs, one focuses on upper body, lower body, toning, so whatever you feel like working (or whatever isn't sore at the time) you can pick and choose which ones to do. Its a great concept. I also have Quick Fix Cardio Kick, same idea three ten minute segments. Does your area have garage/yard sales? I have gotten great steals on barely used videos at them. Got some for a buck a peace and one was even given away! Can't wait for yard sale season to come round again!
    Enjoy your new video!

    I liked your blog. I have finally found somebody who does the Leslie Sansone DVD's. Is the DVD that you mentioned a new one? I have been looking for the something more challenging and different. The 10 minute DVD's also sound great, could you send some info on them. Sounds like you are really great with exercising, keep up the good work. emoticon
