"I like the For Dummies series. They are far more superior than the Idiot's Guide due to the way the books are laid out and the authors the publisher chooses. Having this "bias" already, I was quite intrigued when I saw the DVD. What the heck, let's try it out. And the result is... not bad. It's quick and dirty work out on all parts of the abdominal. I got a kick out of it. There are about 10 exercises in all plus warm up and cool down. The music is light, the teacher smiles a lot (a bit much really), no fuss no frill, just getting down to business. On the negative side, there are no pauses really between exercises. You have to stop your DVD player between exercises especially if you are a beginner. My guess is For Dummies is saving on run time. But at 12 bucks per DVD, I won't complain ... too much. :) Overall, I'm quite satisfied. You'll like it if you have some training in abs already; you'll have an easier time to catch on. It might be a bit hard for a beginner given the pace of the DVD. But it shouldn't stop you from giving this a shot. Just remember to pause in between exercises. Oh and one more thing. The DVD doesn't offer much exericse on the lower back (the opposite muscle group). You should always work out on opposite muscle group to avoid imbalance of muscle strength. So, do a few on your own. There are much written in the way of what lower back exercises are, so I'll spare you the details here. Have fun, and have a good sweat!!"
Good ab workouts.

"The DVD is composed of 10 different ab exercises. They are easy to follow. You could really feel the difference after doing the exercises properly. The reason I am not giving it a 5 star is that it does not work the obliques enough."

"I've only done this workout a total of maybe 10 times. Each time I go through the full 10 sequences. It works! The next day I can definitely feel it as I am going about my day. I recommend this workout for toning up your midsection. It doesn't take up much time and you will see a difference!"
Excellent Workout Routine

"I have excercised to Gay Gasper's 10 minute Abs workout section for the past two years. It absolutely works! I used it consistently last year and was able to fit into my smallest clothes. I briefly switched to another DVD and noticed that my clothes were tight again. I started using the 10 minutes Abs workout DVD two months ago and my clothes feel wonderful again. I am able to wear my pencil skirts without my stomach protruding. I look great and feel great!
Well-detailed crunch routine

"This is a routine of 10 basic crunches. The format is easy to follow - but as one reviewer states - one must get up and manually stop the disk to really get a full handle on each crunch - not very sexy, "fun", or hip - yet, the detailed narrative is precisely where this presentation has its strength - once the exercise is mastered, one can take it to the gym and elaborate - this production has noticeably improved my ab workout and my abs."
