This week my plan was to do 2 10 Minute Trainer workouts a day, adding 20 minutes of it. But the WHOLE family has been sick this week. Tummy flu, strep throat, ear infection and fevers were my week. BUT with all that being said I still made a purpose to fit in one workout a day. I did have a few days I was able to do 2 workouts in one day, those days were fun. I’m really liking doing these workouts and Tony Horton gives you two ways to do each move if they are more difficult. You can do it the “regular” way or use the “modification”.
I also want to talk about two of the other workouts in this program. Last week I talked about “cardio” and “Yoga Flex”. This week I’d like to share my thoughts on “Abs” and “Lower Body”.
I actually “hate” both workouts. When I say “hate”, I mean they kicked my butt really hard. With “Lower Body” you are doing a lot of squat moves and you can really feel the BURN. I look forward to working more and more with this and seeing my legs and bum get stronger. For the “Abs” you do 20 moves in 10 minutes. 10 minutes of ab work is no joke. I feel like I can’t finish before it’s even half over. The great thing is Tony says “if you need a break or need to modify do it”. Even at one point the girl who is doing the workout needs to modify. She’s very fit and to know even she needs to modify helps encourage me to keep going. The first workout after doing “abs” I could hardly sit up the next day. It was quite funny actually. But after 2 weeks of it, it’s getting better.
I know I have a lot of people say to me, “what can 10 minutes really do?” I tell them now, “A LOT”! I was in ok shape before this and it is still hard for me and I was still sore after starting. Plus if I have more time I have a schedule/program that helps me be able to get up to 30 minutes of a workout in a day.
A workout is what you make of it. If you want results you’ll put in you 110% if you just want to flop around then don’t work as hard. I can’t wait to share with you my 1 month results from using 10 Minute Trainer. 2 more weeks for the results.
