Exercise TV The Original 10 Pound Slimdown

By

Comments about Exercise TV 10 Pound Slimdown:

I have owned this particular workout series for 2 years now. Chris Freytag is the fitness instructor in this workout series. This workout dvd features 5 different workout routines which are: upper body, lower body, core, total body and yoga. Each workout is a total of 24 minutes in length with the warm up and cool down included.

There is a digital workout plan that is featured on this workout that you can download to follow. The workout plan is designed for a total of 30 days. For the first 2 weeks of the workout, Chris Freytag will have you workout for 5 days straight. After the fifth day of working out you have 2 days off to rest. The last 2 weeks of the workout, you will workout out for 6 days straight. After the sixth day of working out you will have 1 day off to rest.

When doing this workout I either train my upper body or lower body on certain days. According to the workout plan its best to give your muscles a break in between. This allows you to workout everyday without causing injury. Only during the last 2 weeks of the workout does Chris Freytag combine upper body and lower body to be done together on a single day.

Overall this is a great short workout series for when you are short on time. I really like Chris Freytag as a fitness instructor because she is very motivational. I did lose 5 pounds while using this dvd series.

Comments about Exercise TV 10 Pound Slimdown:

This dvd has five seperate 20 min w/o's on it; upper body, lower body, total body, yoga, and core. All except the yoga section include great cardio bursts. Chris works out alone on an awesome set- dark wood and pale blue fogged panes with fitness accessories around the perimeter. You will need dumbbells for this workout. There isnt a mix & match or play all feature.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE cardio splits as I call them- seperate upper/lower body workouts that include cardio and this dvd fits the bill perfectly. Im ALWAYS on the look out for more w/o's formatted like this so I was very happy to find this gem. The toning & cardio moves get progressively harder as she adds in balance challenges & more intensity as she goes. Each workout has 3 circuits and you repeat each circuit 2ce. Each circuit contains 2 strength sets and then one high intensity cardio burst followed by a recovery 

**Upper Body:** Some of the moves include pushups, tricep kickbacks on all 4's with a knee pull in, skaters, military press, jacks, bicep curls w/ a knee pull, french press while balancing, front raise w/ a squat, and jumproping.

**Lower Body:** Includes lots of lunges & lunge variations- flying lunges, stationary unweigthed lunges, runners lujnge, knee pull ins w/ hands on floor, hi knee pulls, curtsy lunge variations, and side squats into a power squat. My legs were fried by the end of this segment!

**Total Body:** Includes both upper & lower body strength work & cardio blast- the moves include: setting down & picking up your weights, squat w/ row, 1-legged deadlift, tire run, lunge-twist-balance combo, static lunge circling your weight around your leg, runners lunge w/ leg pull and bicep curl, kick w/ a floor touch, bridge- pec fly combo, a side plank-dumbbell raise, mini lunge w/ a back row, and a fast feet reaction drill.

**Core:** This section includes cardio work interspersed into the core work. Moves include: knee pulls, boat pose with leg extensions, lying toe touches, power side lunge twist, bicycle with bench press, full body leg extension w/ lat pull down, side plank, mt. climber, V sits w/ bow & arrow arms holding dumbbells, circle crunches, planks, leg lifts, and gorrilla walks w/a hop (tough).

**Yoga:** This is a 20 minute vinyassa type yoga segment (no cardio bursts) that moves fairly quickly (which I liked). You start w/ some breathing, cat-cow, forward bends, down dogs, up dogs, chataranga, chair pose, warrior, tree pose, low lunge, runners lunge, twisted chair, pigeon, and side planks.

I would rate this a solid to higher intermediate that is easy to modify up or down.Chris looks fantastic- even more toned than her previous dvds. This dvd is great to add onto other workouts, for days you are short on time, or to combine for a 40-120 minute workout. Chris' cueing is great, the moves are fun, unique, and effective.
