10 Minute Solution: 5 Day Get Fit Mix
|Great Workout DVD!|
|My sister bought this DVD for me, seeing that she had a copy for herself and loved it. Boy, am I glad she introduced me to Amy Bento. This workout (I have done all sections bar the Yoga one) is really effective and flies by! The moves are not hard to follow at all and they work several muscle groups at once. The section I most enjoyed was the "Kickboxing" section. I love the way the moves flow and were not complicated to attain. The "Abs" section had lots of standing moves, which I prefer as it doesn't hurt my neck, unlike the usual lying-down crunches. I really recommend this workout to anyone who is pressed for time and believe me, this workout does NOT drag. - posted by Maise on 9/14/2013|
|Good selection - don't lose the remote!|
|The backdrop of the workouts seems a little bit low-budget, but the workout DVD has a solid selection of 10-minute routines that can be combined in any way to customize your workout. Great for days when any other DVD would just be too long and you would otherwise skip exercising before rushing off to work. - posted by Julie on 9/8/2013|
|Excellent Mix!!! Excellent Instructor!!!|
|A great mix of cardio, interval training, sculpting, ab workout, kick boxing and yoga in this 10 Minute Solution DVD! Amy Bento Ross keeps you motivated on each of the 5 segments and each 10 minute segment is a great workout! If you love variety in your routine or want something fresh and different, then this 10 Minute Solution DVD is just the ticket! Way to Go Amy! - posted by Pedro on 7/15/2012|
|a few really good segments|
|Love the fat-blasting intervals" section--I wish the yoga and kickboxing sections could be eliminated and replaced with segments that are this good. The "lean body sculpt" and "belly fat burner" segments are also quite good. (Hey--three out of five isn't bad.) As other reviewers have noted, it's too bad that the 10-minute solution DVDs have warm-up and cool-down in EVERY segment--such a waste of time. The warm-up and cool-down segments should be separate from the workout segments. - posted by vjw on 1/18/2012|
|Great Variety. Love Amy!|
|This dvd has five 10 minute segments led by Amy who works out alone in a nice open set with exercise paraphanalia around the perimeter. You will need dumbbells for a few of the segments. The dvd is fully programmable so you can mix & match as you please. There is an ab, yoga, strength, cardio kickboxing, and interval w/o-all very different and all enjoyable.
Cardio Kickboxing: Is a good little kickboxing workout but not super intense because she has to show you each combo slow first (which is pretty standard for KB IMO). I like the workout because Amy combines a lot of the standard kickboxing punches & kicks in a unique way. So not difficult to catch on to but still fun & fresh.
Fat Blasting Intervals: Is a nice little calorie burner! You do 1 minute of cardio and then (1 min?) of multilimb strength work. The cardio is fun & lots of new (to me) moves that will get your heartrate up nicely. There is some impact-double knee jumps, jacks, etc. I used 10 # db's for the strength work and it worked nicely. She includes some plank jacks & mt. climbers.
Power Yoga: I enjoyed this yoga routine because it moves right along-she talks about moving faster, heating the body, and energy so I agree this is power yoga. You will see warrior 1 & 2, up & down dog, chair pose, etc.
Belly Fat Burner: This section also uses dumbbells. The first portion is standing-a dumbbell side bend, 1/2 moon, etc. Then you go down to the floor for some planks, gorilla walks, buttkicks, and other plank variations. I am a fan of Amy's ab work and this is no exception.
Lean Body Sculpt: Amy uses 5# db's in this but I used a variety. Its all compound moves- 1 legged squats with a shoulder raise, squat-abduct-OH press, side lunges & slinge, deadlift- rear lat raise, and includes a bit of balance work too. My heartrate was up and I liked the variety in this segment.
Overall I would say this is a high intermediate but low intermediates would be fine too. I like Amy and I love the variety this dvd provides. Her cueing and energy are both great here. - posted by lindseylu8 on 12/28/2010|
|I love Amy and all her workouts. This one is no exception. Its nice to have an intermediate workout from Amy for those "easier" Amy days. She's so encouraging and motivating and down to earth. - posted by Teresa on 9/3/2010|
|Overall this is a decent workout! The best sections are the Cardio Kickboxing and Fat Blasting Intervals, they really have effective cardio and toning moves and are intense. I've given it a 4 out of 5 because the Abs section could be better. The standing ab toning with the hand weight aren't really effective toning moves. But overall, a good workout dvd to have. I'll definitely do this a couple times a month - posted by KZ on 12/17/2009|
|Loving the mix!|
|This one has everything! Yoga, kickboxing, abs/core, intervals, sculpting and a great instructor. Amy is motivating, supportive and pushes you(or at least me :)) to give it your all. My favorite part is when she says..."You gotta think it, believe it and be it"! This one is my favorite in my collection...love it, love it, love it! Way to go Amy...keep them coming! - posted by Ms.Dee on 12/7/2009|
|So - So|
|I have seen lots of positive reviews for her videos, so I finally got one to see what I'd think. Really, this is just so-so and not as much fun as some of the other 10 minute workouts. The new 10 minute solution kickboxing workout for example, is much better. These routines are just OK. There is variety which is nice and Amy has a nice manner about her. But I won't be doing this one, or segments of it, very often. - posted by Robin K on 10/9/2009|
|This one has it all!|
|I love Amy, and I love this series. This one is even better than her "Hot Body Boot Camp", because this one has even more variety- it's perfect! From cardio kickboxing to yoga and interval training in between, you'll stay motivated. I have done this one many times in a short few weeks because Amy mixes this workout up just perfectly! My favorite segment is the "Fat Blasting Intervals: Amy is awesome about implementing unique and effective moves. - posted by Molly on 9/30/2009|
