Want to burn carbs but no time to exercise? We have the solution for you - the 10 Minute Solution! Everyone can find at least 10 minutes in their day and we've developed five super effective, carb-blasting workouts, each only 10 minutes. Instructor Michelle Dozois has designed the segments so that you can utilize each individually, or mix and match the sets to create a completely custom workout. Or you can put all five sets together for an incredible 50-minute carb burning bonanza.

SLOW and STEADY BURN This is cardio at its best - easy-to-follow-, fun and effective! By keeping your heartrate and exertion level at an elevated, yet comfortable pace for the entire 10 minutes, you'll blast away carbs and feel great.

CARB KILLER Using kickboxing moves to knock-out extra carbs and calories, this routine really maximizes your weight loss efforts. Don't worry if you're not a seasoned kickboxer...the moves are easy-to-follow and inspiring!

POWER BLAST Get ready for a high energy, high power workout! This segment uses explosive yet controlled movements to really rev up your body's carb-burning engine. Feel the power...Feel the burn!

INTERVAL BURN It's back to basics with this 10 Minute segment. No nonsense, boot camp-inspired exercises are used to increase your muscular endurance and strength. You'll take your heartrate up and down throughout several intervals - a proven technique to really demolish those carbs and calories.

METABOLISM BOOSTER This unique segment will keep you burning carbs and calories long AFTER your workout is over! The secret is incorporating weights. By using light hand weights, you'll build lean muscle to increase your metabolism and burn more carbs, faster than ever before.

BONUS CARB CONVERSION CHART INSIDE This effective "cheat sheet" outlines the 10 Minute workout you need to do to burn off the carbs in everyday food items like bread, chips, pasta and even chocolate! Author and Nutrition expert, Cindy Whitmarsh of "Ultrafit Nutrition Systems", also gives 5 super effective tips on how to stave off carb cravings, AND 10 totally simple substitutions to replace "bad" carbs in your diet with good carbs - without compromising flavor!

Summary: Format could be much better, but decent workout
Comment: This DVD has some interesting exercise combinations, but the format leaves something to be desired.

The explanation of each workout should be in a separate intro section. She simply stands during each intro and there is also a lot of standing around between exercises within each workout (every second counts when a workout only lasts 10 minutes).

A separate warm-up and cool-down segment would have been much better than including these in each segment. In one of the segments she has you bending your neck to the sides much too quickly if you are doing these workouts only.

There is no on-screen countdown timer.

The last two workouts are the best if you want a lower-impact workout, and they also have an abs component to them. The other three have much more jumping, squatting, and pivoting, so if you have knee issues or just don't like bouncing around, you will need to modify them somewhat.

As far as the customizing feature, once you got to your last workout choice, you could not just chapter back to any other workout (at least, not on my computer), so you might be better off just hitting "play all", and just chapter forward and back as you wish.

Any of these would be a decent add-on to a shorter workout. As far as whether they stand alone as separate workouts, well, the last two workouts might, but as to the first three, they are comparable to power walking.

3.7 stars.

Summary: Good variety and challenging
Comment: I bought this to have segmented blocks of exercise to add to circuit training and this is a nice DVD for that. I appreciate that each segment is very different from one another and that you can tailor it to you specific fitness level.

Seg 1 is great for getting into the workout mood through steady exercise and heart rate elevation. Advanced fitness types will find that this probably doesnt quiet get them into their HRM but increase the movements and you'll be fine.

Seg 2 has easy to learn/complete kickbox movements. Nothing too fancy but enough to keep your heart rate steady (not really an energizing segment)

Seg 3 has polymetrics, lunges and hops, so if you have bad knees, try alternatives to decrease pressure. Great blast in the middle of the workout.

Seg 4 has good use of interval training but the word bootcamp is a mis-title- nothing boot camp about it .. at least we didnt do this in our bootcamp but none the less it has challenging moves.

Seg 5, 3-5 lbs weights are good for this section or no weights at all are find too.

You have 3-play options: All in order at one time w/o having to manually advance/fwd; Organize your own or play 1-at a time.

Summary: Kick My Booty Workout!
Comment: Wow!! This is an awesome set of workouts! I've used lots of in home videos and this is the best! I've done walking and dancing and strength training. This is NOT for beginners! Carb and Calorie Burner really lives up to the title! The 10 minute format makes the workouts easy to use no matter how much time you have or don't have! The cues are great and you can program the format so that you may do any combination of the five workouts together.

Summary: Amazing workout(s)!
Comment: This dvd is so awesome. I hate doing cardio, but the way it's broken into 10 minute sections is perfect. Each section done alone is enough to get your heart rate up and a good sweat going, but done together it feels like even more than just a normal 20 or 30 minute work out.

Perfect for beginners too - she leads into every step, and shows modifications for the beginner. I love this workout!!!

Summary: 10 minute solution is great!
