Review of "10 Minute Solution: Tone Trouble Zones" DVD, part 2

Today I am reviewing the other 3 segments of 10 Minute Solution: Tone Trouble Zones (affiliate link) DVD.

I did 3 segments - Sleek and Sexy Abs, Total Body Tone Zone, and the 10 Minute Stretch. I had already worked out with a walking workout for about an hour, so I went into this toning session a little tired.

I started out with the Total Body Tone Zone. This was a fast paced workout that was too hard for me at times, especially with the speed of the workout. I didn't try to keep up when it was foolish to do so - that's an easy way to get injured - but I just did the best I could with the range and the speed of the moves. And like I've said before about these 10 Minute Solution workouts, you're not doing any one thing for too long. If you hate an exercise, it will be over soon. That helped me as I did this workout. I didn't really hate anything, but parts of it were difficult, and I was glad it was over within 10 minutes.

I then moved on to Sleek and Sexy Abs. This was one of the best uses of the resistance band in an abs workout that I have ever seen. It really used the band to help you do moves you might not have been able to hold otherwise, and it made it more interesting. For example, there was a fairly standard bicycle move, but when you throw in the resistance band, it is a lot harder and a lot different than your standard move. I was able to push myself a little harder on this part of the workout. I think my abs will be feeling this workout tomorrow! This segment ended with a longer than normal stretch - for a 10 Minute Solution workout, anyway! - that was over a minute. That was a nice surprise.

I ended with the 10 Minute Stretch. I have to admit, I was a little bored for the first 5 minutes. The last 5 minutes were better, incorporating the band into some really nice hip stretches. I enjoyed this segment, but I don't see myself putting the DVD just to do this stretch.

I would do this DVD again. It was interesting, especially with the use of the resistance band. I am intrigued to see if repeated use of the workouts would make a big difference in muscle tone.
