Ultimate Boot Camp

By 

from USA, Indiana

Comments about 10 Minute Solution: Ultimate Boot Camp:

10 Minute Solution Ultimate Boot Camp really kick my behind! I am a fan of 10 Minute Solution fitness dvds because it only takes 10 minutes to get a full workout done. The workout on this particular dvd consist of: Fat Fighting Skills & Drills, Ultimate Upper Body Training, Ultimate Lower Body Training, Ultimate Total Body Training and Six Pack Ab Attack. Each workout is 10 minutes long and the entire dvd 53 minutes in length.

In the first workout there is a lot of jumping around which is considered high intensity. So for those who prefer a lower intensity workout maybe this isn't the workout for you. In the Ultimate Lower Body Training there are a lot of lunges and squats which can be tough on one's knees. If you have knee problems skip this workout.

You will need a set of hand weights as well to use during workouts Ultimate Upper Body Training and Ultimate Total Body Training,

This is a great workout and I really like it. I wish there were modified versions of some of the workouts shown in the dvd.

Advanced Boot camp workout

By 

from Herndon, VA

Comments about 10 Minute Solution: Ultimate Boot Camp:

One of the better, tougher 10 Minute Solution Workout. I've tried many from the 10 Minute Solution series; this one is advanced!
Jessica Smith is an awesome instructor, I love all of her workout videos. Her workouts are tough, but she is personable and non-intimidating. Her personality seems real and never phony. I have to get along with my Instructor!
This workout is Boot-Camp Style. Each 10 minute segment focuses on a different area. One is pure cardio, one is upper body, one is abs, one is lower body, and one is functional total body strength training.
The cardio one is tough! High impact, with lots of jumping. A beginner could modify some with substituting some low impact moves such as marching or walking.
My favorite segment is the Ultimate Lower Body Training. This is one of the toughest lower body workouts I've done. I'm used to doing lots of lunges and squats, so it takes a lot for me to call a lower body workout tough. This one really works, especially my quads and hamstrings. A beginner could modify some of these moves and still get a great and effective lower body workout.
My next favorite is the Ultimate Total Body Training. Great workout with weights.
A warning to any beginner: Be prepared for lots of plank poses and push-ups in this DVD. A beginner could modify though by dropping to their knees. I cannot do all of the moves that Jessica does with proper form, and I modify a lot and still get a really good workout. I'd probably give this DVD a "10" if it weren't for all the time spent in plank pose and doing pushups.
The abs and upper body segments are also effective.

The set is modern and open, and Jessica changes her outfit for each workout. It's a bonus for us viewers so we don't get bored.

I'd rate this DVD as probably one of my favorites of the 10 Minute solutions series. I'd recommend all the 10 minute Solution series which feature Jessica Smith. I like her teaching style and her personality is natural and not annoying. Bonus!

Fun but TOUGH!

Jessica Smith, 2010

This is a bootcamp-esque dvd by 10 Minute Solutions, led by Jessica Smith, who works out alone in a nice wide open set. This dvd includes cardio and strength moves. There are five 10 minute segments that you can use individually or mix and match to create a 10-50+ minute workout. You will need a few sets of dumbbells for some of the segments.

I did all 5 segments this morning and got a great cardio and a great stength workout! The segments go by FAST and each segment got/kept my heartrate up. Jessica does an awesome job leading and all the moves have a fresh & unique feel to them without being complicated or confusing. I felt my muscles being worked in a different way than traditional strength training moves. She adds in agility moves and balance work as well. There is a definate functional feel but you are able to heavy up-the best of both worlds.

FAT FIGHTING SKILLS & DRILLS: is a fun and unique cardio workout that really got my heartrate up and got me sweating from the get go-jumping jacks, squat thrust variations, "mud crawling." The moves are all athletic and straightforward with a definate bootcamp feel to them. Loved this section-no wasted time. 10 minutes WELL spent.

ULTIMATE UPPER BODY TRAINING: Includes some cardio and explosive moves to keep your heartrate up. I used a few dif sets of dumbbells. The moves were unique and had a functional feel to them, wood chopping, sand bag carrying, pushup and walking plank variations, Mt. climbers, etc. My UB will feel this tomorrow. My core was working in many of the moves-nice bonus.

ULTIMATE LOWER BODY TRAINING: This segment is unweighted but there are enough reps and she goes low into them so I didnt even use dumbbells though you could if you felt the need. There are some jumping squats and plyo lunges that will get your heartrate up and my legs were burning by the end of the 10 minutes. She also incorporates some balance work and bun squeezes. This segment is all done standing.

ULTIMATE TOTAL BODY TRAINING: This segment is full body strength work using a heavy pair of dumbbells. My heartrate was up the entire time and there are some straight cardio & agility moves as well. Again, there were some unique moves in here. A squat with a bicep curl into an overhead press, an explosive front raise into an overhead tricept extension, & pushups.

SIX PACK AB ATTACK: starts with some standing ab work and then goes down to the floor for crawling planks, plank twists, side planks, crunch variations, and sit up variations. My abs were fried by the end of this. Unique and fun and kept in the boocamp spirit.

I would rate this a high intermediate AWT (aerobic weight training) workout. I love workouts that provide enough strength work to count as a strength day but burn enough calories to count as a cardio day-this dvd did just that! This dvd is an excellent addition to my (large) workout collection. I love bootcamp workouts and have many of them but this one really is unique! I see myself reaching for this often as a whole or in pieces. There is really no wasted time here!
