Habits To Avoid to Maximize Results With the 10 Minute Tony Horton Workout

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 141

I am no different than anyone else when it comes to home workout programs. I have the tendency to look for the path of least resistance at all turns.

One of the things I found helpful when I did P90X was that the way they laid out the structure of the workout, there was no doubt about what exactly you needed to be doing and when you needed to be doing it. Basically nothing was left to my own option.

If there is a weakness to the 10 minute Tony Horton workout "Ten Minute Trainer" which is apparent from scanning the online feedback from users, it is this: there exists a lot of wiggle room to modify and adapt the workout to your fitness level and to your individual goals.

When you compare and contrast P90X (which is one of the most bought home workout programs in history) with the 10 minute Tony Horton workout, you can see that while P90X has rigid structure, 10 Minute Trainer is looser. This is a problem simply because, as I mentioned, we don't always make the best choices when it comes to getting the most out of a workout.

Unfortunately, the marketing promotional information for the 10 minute Tony Horton workout doesn't let you in on a couple realities. One is that if you are moderately active and fit, it will take more than one ten minute workout per day within the program to see results like you might see with P90X.

I am going to begin with the premise that looking like a P90X graduate is a goal we'd like to achieve. With that in mind, the first behavior to avoid with "10 Minute Trainer" is to skip your morning workout. Get that 10 minutes in before you go to work and then get another 10 minutes in later in the evening before dinner or before bed. From what I am reading, it is much easier and really no less effective to spread the workouts over the course of the day. By doing the morning one, you have a foundation for the second one which you can easily do during the evening when you are likely more alert.

Another behavior to look out for is doing too much improvising outside the program requirements. Due to the ability to modify the 10 minute trainer within each exercise, a user can fall into the trap of not working hard enough or avoiding the hard work right from the beginning. Start out your first time through a routine and try to keep up at the hardest level (the normal program requirements) and modify down where necessary. This will also allow your body to appreciate the gains it makes when you can eventually do the workout at the hardest level.

The other two tips have to do with diet. First, do these workouts on a totally empty stomach. They are high intensity, but short. You'll be done in no time. Eating right before could lead to cramping. The other behavior to avoid is eating less than normal to try and lose weight. Instead, focus on eating right, but as much as you want. Alter your nutrition plan to more real foods and less processed type choices, and then try to be 80% compliant. Avoid the temptation of giving up because you aren't 100% perfect. That is the ideal but it doesn't always work out that way in practice.
