The enclosed workout schedule offers a mix and match approach from one to three routines matched up daily over 4 weeks with one day off a week. 10 min a day for min results, 2 routines (20 min) for improved results, and 3 routines (30 min) for max results. Bands are optional but included. My doors are old and so I use weights and or omit the bands. This system is perfect for me. I also have his p90x and love it as well, but sometimes don't have the time to do it.
You can increase or decrease intensity based on your needs and that's why I like it. For total or lower body, my strength, I push it. For upper body and abs, my weakness, I rest and use his modified moves that he shows you, and I can still feel it. YOU CAN GROW WITH THIS PROGRAM and that's why it's pretty cool. Busy, one 10 minute workout and you'll feel it. More time, then do two or three.
As usual for most every workout, the warm up and cool down are short, so I always do it twice or just keep going on my own. Also, his Yoga is a combo of simple yoga for stretching and can be done daily as it really improves flexibility. I can't believe I wrote this much about the program after one week, but it got me off my butt and working out again after I moved and have not worked out in about three months. A+ Tony...and THANKS!
I really wanted to buy P90X, but being a former athlete, I knew that it would have been impossible to finish the 60-minutes + P90X workouts.
It is not a matter of time, it is a matter of knowing your body and how much you can do.
The TMT got me back into the game and had me moving again...
For those of you who are thinking of buying TMT, here are a few tips.
1. Watch the videos first before you start the program. This will give you the opportunity to "learn" the exercises and try it at least once or twice.
2. I confess that I could not finish the program the first time I popped it into my DVD. I did take short brakes. Do the same, but finish it. You will feel proud of yourself.
3. You need to commit not only to the 10 minutes of physical exercise, but to 10 minutes of mental strength. Push yourself.
10 minutes, 45 minutes, 2 hours, pick some product and go with it.
I picked this one, because it is only 10 minutes (and I knew that in the beginning, that was all I could do).
Now, I do 2 DVDs every time I exercise.
With proper nutrition (no junk food, that's really the only rule you should abide to), you will see results.
First, I suggest you set a goal, and see if you have to lose weight, and how much you need to lose by either talking to your doctor, or calculate your BMI (google it) index. BMI is not 100% accurate of telling how much weight you need to maintain to stay healthy, but would give you a good overall picture of what needs to be done. Again, use it as a general guidance of what your weight goal SHOULD be.
Now, the title of the product is TMT, or Ten Minute Training. It's not exactly 10 minutes is all you need to invest per day. You need to include warm-up, and cool-down along with the 10 minute exercising. So, the whole package is roughly 30 minutes per round. I call this "per round" is just because that would only give you the minimum result. In order to get the maximum result, you need to do three rounds a day, with a mix of different exercise routines. For example, for one day, your "package" might include Total Body, Abs, and Yoga Flex. You can do the minimum of Total Body, but considering how much can you achieve in 10 minutes, would not be much. Some of the exercises are a bit chanlleging to some new joiners especially if you haven't done any routine exercise for a while, so you MUST let you body adjust to it first. What that means is, you probably want to stay off by doing one routine at the beginning, for about a week or even two weeks. If you keep the consistency, I guarantee your body will start to adjust to it, then perhaps you can do TWO routines per day. You can either do it one in the morning and one at night. Doing two routines at the same time may not be a great idea at the beginning especially some requires a high bit of cardio exercise. The whole idea is, don't push yourself too hard at the beginning, your body is NOT a robot and need time to adjust to the workout system. For me, after 6 weeks of the program, I do one cardio in the morning (boy, that feels good after all the sweating), and two routines (usually a Yoga, Abs, or something else) at night. Doing cardio in the morning will keep yourself really energetic throughout the day. You might feel a bit sore and tired at the beginning, but you will quickly adjust to it.
It's important to set a workout goal. Let's say, make a commitment to let your body burn in the first two weeks but only limited to doing only one routine a day, but on the 3rd or 4th week, you need to increase one more routine (that makes two routines per day then eventually three a day). No matter what, don't give yourself any excuse, don't delay, don't slack off. You WILL feel the difference. Finally, when you do three routines, you are not far from your goal, to reduce weight, feel MUCH healthier, and feel great after all. Your friends and family will notice too. If there are certainly day (not days in a row!) that you don't feel like working out or just totally burned out from work, skip it, but do watch the video anyway. This way, your mind-set is still exercising and not letting this commitment fall behind your head gradually.
Aside from exercising, there are some keypoints that should go hand in hand with the program. Here are what I can think of:
When to do your routine:
Morning: After you wake up, sip a little of water. Do a cardio, then move on with your daily activities. Drink another glass or two of water after the exercise. It's important to keep yourself hydrated. It's important NOT to drink iced or cold water. Luke warm water is the best since it can quickly hydrate your body system and cause less shock to your internal organs.
Evening: Roughly one hour after dinner. Do a mix of other routines other than Cardio. Again, keeping yourself hydrated is important. Your muscle will need it too. No iced water, no soda (taboo), no energy drinks need, just good old water. That's all you need. You might feel a little hungry after workout, it's perfectly to have a serving of food, such as an apple, berries, but please, no pasta or anything that has much carbs. That will totally defeat the purpose of the program.
Water: I can't stress it enough, that it's important to keep your hydrated all the time, especially after the workout. You should drink water whenever possible and don't wait until you get thirsty. Water also helps you get rid off the junks from your body. It will flush away the bad stuff from sweat, urine, and poop too.
Sleep: Try to get at least 8 hours of sleep, and get up early! 7 to 8 hours would be ideal.
Diet: No more junk food. I know it's hard but the more processed food you consume, the more negativity you'll bring to your body, and negate the purpose of the TMT or any workout. I found anything that contains sugar, MSG, and saturated fat are extremely bad for our diet. If you have to buy processed food, be sure to check the label and see how much sugar, salt, and carbs they contain. Remember, you are what you eat!
Recommended daily diet:
1. Whole apple - one to two a day. It's a GREAT snack to eat after exercising
2. Green tea - Always get the powder, NOT the one with leafs. Mix green tea powder with luke warm water so you won't destroy the nutrients within. Green tea is a great drink to help get rid of the body junks and contains a lot of vitamins. If you used to have energy drink, consider switching to green tea. It's cheap and easy to make, why not?! You can get green tea powder in most Japanese and Chinese supermarkets. Look at the label of production country. Japan makes the best green tea powder, Taiwan is the second, and stay away from other countries' production.
3. Try to stay away from starchy food, such as pasta, rice and white bread. Those things contains lots of sugar and carbs which of course, negate or slow down your TMT efforts.
4. Eat less meat, especially red meat. Try to substitute poultry with fish. Fish oil is good, Salmon is the best.
5. Don't need to waste your money on organic food. Most so-called "organic food" you get from the supermarket are hardly organic wholly. Besides, organic food are only good when they are first picked and eaten within the first couple of hours. If you want true organic food, grow your own!
6. Breakfast is important, whereas dinner is the least important (in my opinion, of course). For breakfast, have some oatmeal which is contains much fiber and vitamin, and can curb your hunger for many hours. Be sure to buy the kind you need to cook, not instant. Eat a relatively heavier lunch rather than dinner, as you still have to do much physical activities during the day
Okay, here's the summary for the TMT:
Good: A bit challenging at the beginning, but not too hard overall. I'm a 46-year old and have absolutely no problem catching up after the initial two-weeks burn-in period. Tony is a good trainer and gives you a lot of good advice during the routines. The two-set DVDs include Total Body, Lower Body, Abs, Yoga Flex, and Cardio, and the package even comes with the elastic band! It's a good value.
Bad: Annoying commercials. It pops out before and after every workout, but you can fast foward or skip them. Also, not sure why they can't put all workouts into one DVD. I have to keep on switch DVDs which is a pain, unless you have more than one DVD player. These are the major reaons I didn't give it a 5 star.
Well, that's about it. I hope my lenghty, nagging review would be helpful to some of you. If you like my review, please rate it. If not, don't say anything (just kidding). Send me any questions or comments. I welcome them all. I might add more comments and edit this review from time to time.
As a working mom, there are some days that I cannot get to the gym, or devote more than a half hour tops for working out. I bought this system to supplement my workout routine.
If I only have 10 minutes, I do the 10 minute cardio or the yoga flex or lower body. But 10 minutes is actually 12 or 13, as the clock stops between each move. It also takes a long time to switch back and forth between CDs, which is frustrating.
If I have 30 minutes or so, I do another Beach Body system, such as Yoga Booty Ballet or Kathy Smith. This is because I find their transitions and cueing to be much better, and not as rough on the body.
Finally: while I enjoy the Beach Body programs, I do find their infomercials, which come at the end of each DVD, to be disruptive, loud, and annoying. If I have just completed a yoga workout, I don't want a screaming announcer to IMMEDIATELY come on and try to sell me something. This completely destroys the relaxation that I just worked so hard to achieve.
The thing I love most about this program is that it works. Because it's so fast and easy and far from mundane, you keep going past the first week. Then when you measure at 2 weeks and realize you've lost 6 inches, you decide you really love the work out and want to keep going. When you measure after 3 weeks and see 11 inches gone, you jump for joy at the opportunity to do your work outs every day. When you realize you can actually do push-ups from plank rather than off your knees like you've been doing your whole life, you feel like building a shrine to Tony Horton in your closet.
I haven't reached my 30 day mark, and I can already fit--almost comfortably--into my 60-day Goal Jeans (I imagine if I'd actually done the 10 day jean plan thingy that comes with the work-out, I would have seen faster results; oh well).
I definetly plan to keep working hard and losing inches with 10 Minute Trainer. It's absolutely the smartest purchase I've ever made.
