"Thin in 10" by Jessica Smith and Liz Neporent - Part 5

I am continuing my review of The Thin in 10 Weight-Loss Plan: Transform Your Body (and Life!) in Minutes a Day (affiliate link) by Jessica Smith and Liz Neporent.

Today's 10 minute workout to review was "Thin In 10 Stretch and De-Stress Workout with Jessica Smith". It is available through the DVD that comes with the book, or currently is streaming with a $2.99/month Sportskool subscription on YouTube.

I must advise that I am uncomfortable with yoga, especially the spiritual aspects that differ very much from my beliefs. Therefore, I approach stretching workouts with some skepticism. This workout did start out with some breathing, but it reminded me of the sound of breathing that people make when they are sleeping.  And there was also another breathing section to encourage you to not breathe so shallowly. The stretching workout seemed to be just that - stretching without yoga. It was a nice, slow stretch. It was all on the floor, even though some of the stretches are ones you would normally do standing up, like the quad stretch. It wasn't a boring stretch, and I think that had to do with Jessica's instruction and encouragement.

I would do this stretch again. I might not pop in the DVD just to do it, but I would do this after I did another workout on the DVD.

Of all of these workouts, I would say that "Cardio Quickie" is my favorite, and that, fortunately, is the one that is free on YouTube.

I still haven't finished the book. When I do complete the book, I'll write a review here for the blog. I hope to get it finished this spring.
