What You Must Do To Achieve Satisfactory Results With the 10 Minute Tony Horton Workout

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 140

Embarking on a series where I wanted to review and share some of the more popular workouts, seemed like it would be both fun and easy. These workouts have this way of making you so confident in the power each workout has to bring change.

My immediate thinking as a graduate of P90X is that there would be some sort of special ingredient that somehow transcends the basics of what you must do to achieve great results with any workout program. In other words, I thought I'd find a common thread that amounted to a magic bullet.

With Regard to the 10 minute Tony Horton workout "10 Minute Trainer", I was pre-calibrated to believe it was a miniature version of P90X, and that just following along would be a sure path to great results.

The reality was much different, and this came to be apparent as I focused on the user reviews of the product. Basically there was a line of demarcation between who had good things to say about 10 Minute Trainer and who had negative things to say about it.

The line was written on either side of having the proper approach and expectations. I would actually say that with the 10 Minute Tony Horton workout, far more than with P90X, you have to have a very rigid mental outlook on one key area, but than a more open attitude in one other key area.

The first area deals with proper nutrition and diet. One user described it as "controlling the gate". To see results that you want to see (or you will likely quit) means eating right. This more than anything means less intake of foods that are full of processed sugars and preservatives. As seen in the recent "60 Minutes" piece on the negative effects of too much sugar, you have to know that it causes obesity.

So bottom line, eat pure and clean. Focus on things out of the ground or animals that eat things out of the ground. Get your carbs from fruits and vegetables.

The area where you need to have an open attitude is in your desire to limit your workout to only the one workout of 10 minutes each day. You can achieve results on 10 minutes a day, but to really see the faster results and the gains physically, you will likely have to do more than 1 workout each day. Unfortunately, this is not strongly laid out in the marketing materials for the product.

Managing expectations and approach is your job and will make the difference between "10 Minute Trainer" being positive for your fitness goals or another shelf dust collector.
