10 Minute Solution: Rapid Results Fat Burner
|LOVE this DVD|
|I love these workouts. They are fun, effective and very efficient. With these workouts you definitely get your heart rate up, but you also move in different planes of motion -- front to back, side to side, etc. This is very important and truly healthy. Her personality is fun and energetic. So glad to have these workouts. - posted by Marla on 11/12/2013|
|Great if you overlook the small stuff|
|I’m sooo tired of having to pair two videos together just to get a longer aerobic workout, so this one appealed to me a lot. The Sports Drills segment is creative and the intervals in section two include lots of plyo moves that really worked my quads and got my heart rate up (I’m an intermediate or inter/adv). In the Cardio Max segment, the arabesques don’t flow with the squat jumps and side lunges, so it takes some getting used to. Though the kick-boxing session’s lighter than the others, you can adjust it by keeping your feet moving more and adding more/quicker punches. (For example: jab-cross-jab-cross instead of two slow jabs.) The low-impact section, however, is hopeless. Though I thought the “classic” moves might be fun, they were so slow that they weren’t just boring—they were ineffective, too. When I customize the workout for a 50-minute session, I skip that one entirely but repeat one of the other segments, either alternating between that and the other three or as book-ends to start and finish with. When it comes to the issue of the brief warm-ups and cool-downs already included, I have to point out to the critics that THEY ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE 10-MINUTE SOLUTION FORMAT. It’s easy enough to keep moving right along with some of the previous session’s combos or insert basic jacks, jump-ropes, plyos, etc. until the next segment revs up again. When it comes to Cat herself, she is obviously fit and graceful but her personal style doesn’t always match the workouts (i.e.: boxers don’t stand like dancers) and her cueing here is often delayed, so I figured out that once I learned the moves, I was more comfortable if I didn't try to mirror her specific form. Most of the steps are not complicated but some of them can be hard on the knees, so you may have to modify if your knees are moody. My main problems with this workout are it's relatively superficial, so I have to reiterate that I like it overall and enjoy the challenge and variety. It's grown on me. - posted by Kim on 11/22/2012|
|Good workout, good instructor|
|I think I've used this dvd the most in the past few months. I tend to stick with three sections: sports drills, cardio max, and intervals. Sometimes it feels a little slow, so I do what I can to increase the intensity, and I usually repeat a segment to make it 40 minutes. I also skip the cooldowns and ff to the next segments. I agree with the poster who said the low impact chapter was worthless, but I suppose it's better than doing nothing. Cat cues well enough and I like her calm demeanor. - posted by Sadie on 9/7/2012|
|A True Fat Burner|
|I've done nearly all of the 10-Min. Solution videos, and I think this is the best aerobic workout of the series. Most of them may have one or maybe two intense segments, but the rest is toning or just easy. This one has five very good aerobic segments, albeit with the short warm-ups and cooldowns. I do the entire DVD sequentially, as one 50-minute workout, and it's just not that hard to run in place, cross country ski, etc. to maintain the heartrate during these brief breaks. Predictably, the low impact segment was the easiest, but still on a more intense level than most other DVD's in the series. I also enjoyed Cat's instruction and the cueing is good. - posted by Janny on 8/14/2012|
|Excellent Cardio Workouts!|
|Cat gives you 5 different cardio segments that will have you sweating! Lots of high intensity, basic cardio routines and sports drills are what you get in these 5 segments! I love this 10 Minute Solution DVD! - posted by Pedro on 7/15/2012|
|Really good workouts! Moves quickly & challenges your heart & muscles! - posted by Cyndi on 4/5/2012|
|I agree with some other reviewers about the unneeded warm up and cool down on each cardio segment, but I then just skipped to the next video if I want to do 2 in a row.
I'm and interm/adv exerciser and I found that doing 2 videos is a good cardio workout for light days. The cuing is right on time and the instructor seems nice, although there's something about her that doesn't click with me.
The good thing about this video is the possibility to have a customizable and varied workout, since most exercise dvds don't offer that in the cardio segment. - posted by Sofi on 3/26/2012|
|This dvd is the best and I love all 5 segments. Its not boring and I do this dvd every day. - posted by angie on 1/27/2012|
|This dvd is fantastic and I love all of the 5 segments. This is now my favourite dvd and I do this everyday. - posted by Angie on 1/27/2012|
|I like the concept of being able to put together my own workout with the 5 - 10minute segments, but this video is not what it seems. Each segment has a "warm up" and "cool down" that detract from the 10 minutes of aerobics - stringing 3 together was frustrating in that we kept Warming Up and Cooling Down, rather than just keeping the heart rate up. It would have made more sense to have an Intro section to explain what each session is about rather than the instructor introducing each one every time! (That is going to get old very quickly...) and maybe a separate Warm Up and Cool Down section.
I also feel like her combos can be awkward and aren't always cued as well as I'd like. I played with this about a half dozen times - setting up different workouts and even just doing the whole DVD. Instructor seems likeable, and I do break a sweat, but there are more negatives than positives here, so this workout will not be one that I do again. - posted by janet on 1/17/2012|
