Toned tummy in no time with this workout

"I really love the new addition to the 10 Minute Solution series, Quick Tummy Toners. Each section tones in different ways, which is great. It ensures that you will never get bored. There is a little bit of everything included to work every area of your tummy, even cardio which I think is great! I could really feel and notice a difference after each workout. The instructor, Jessica Smith, is very friendly and motivating without getting irritating. This would be a great dvd to do all by itself or to add on a section or more to the beginning or end of a workout."

"I must admit that part of the appeal of this DVD was the fact that I couldn't fathom what 50 minutes worth of ab exercises could look like. I was pleasantly surprised. There's a bit of everything in this workout--yoga, cardio, and of course, lots of ab exercises--plenty of variety to keep the workouts interesting. This is my first DVD with Jessica Smith as instructor, but I like the way she explains things and encourages me through the workouts. I'll try other videos by her in the future. My favorite way to use this DVD is to supplement other workouts--a quick jog and one or two 10-minute routines or free weights and a few of the Tummy Toner routines. I've been very pleased with the results. This one is a new favorite!"

"I already got my copy and have done this once through and really love it. It is another great workout that like all the others, can be done in the shortest of time or in 50 minutes if you want. I really love in particular, the standing rotational moves because they really work your obliques and doing these standing up makes a great change and makes you work a little harder to feel it. There is even a 10 minute cardio segment to burn the fat that lies over your ab muscles and this is essential to shrinking your abs.
The instructor is Jessica Smith and she is motivating and cues quite well. She gives you different ways and positions to try the exercises so you work at your own level. She also goes through the usual pilates and crunch type moves, but overall there is heaps of variety to attack your stomach and help shrink it and burn off the fat around it.
Like the other 10 Minute dvd workouts, you can do these routines in any order and that is always a help to keep it feeling new and fresh. I've done three segments already two days ago and I'm still feeling it a little today. This is a new favourite of mine and after work this afternoon, I plan on doing it again. I think that exercisers of any level will love this too and highly recommend it."
Excellent Ab Workout

"This is the first 5 star review I've ever given to a workout DVD, but I loved this one. Jessica is an excellent instructor, she talks enough to give instructions and be motivating without getting obnoxiously perky and over-the-top. Also I thought all the sections are effective ab workouts, although differing intensities, and I often use them to replace ab sections on other 10 minute solution DVDs.
Crunch-free abs: this first section is just what it claims to be, an ab workout with no crunches. It's a nice change from the usual crunch filled routines, however to make it effective you have to be consciously engaging your core muscles the whole time (unlike in a crunch where your core muscle have to engage to do the move at all) or else you're not really getting an ab workout, you're just moving. It's nice because it takes strain out of your neck and back and it can be done multiple days in a row without straining the muscles. I thought it was medium intensity.
Yoga Abs: this is probably the easiest workout on the DVD. I enjoyed because she really makes you focus on how you hold your abs in different yoga poses. Being someone who pratices some yoga I thought it added an interesting new dimension to what I'm doing with my abs rather than just letting them go. However, I think this is an easy core workout and mostly use it as a stretching cooldown.
Bikini Belly: Here Jessica uses cardio to get an ab workout that I would say is moderately difficult. It'll get your heartrate up (especially if you get into it) and the moves are not hard to follow and jessica cues well. Here again you've got to think about engaging your core but if you do it right its a moderately difficult abs workout and a good cardio.
Ab & Waist Definer: This is a hard ab workout focusing on the obliques. The idea is to workout on twisting and building a belt of muscles that will pull in your waist. This is high intensity abs.
Sexy, sporty abs: This is another high intensity ab workout and probably my favorite on the DVD. She focuses on strengthening the muscles in the abs to improve balance and athletic performance.
Overall, I loved this DVD and highly recommend it to everyone."
