Jorge Cruise's 8 minutes in the morning...anyone tried this?

I've had the book for some time now and just found it again on my book shelf. I am going to start the exercise part of his plan tomorrow, I'm still not convinced to give up my low carb eating since it has ALWAYS worked for me when I followed the plan.

I have a very bad lower back and am now am having knee problems so this seems like a dream since I can't afford to pay for a gym membership anymore (at this time, I do plan on going back to the gym when finances allow).

Also I'm going to purchase on of those Tony Little Gazelle's, I used a friends for about a month and LOVED IT!!!!

Anyone found success on the 8 minutes in the morning?

I was doing it for a few months last year, and it did help build up my strength a bit, but after a while it didn't feel like enough. So I added pilates and some videos. I liked that it just took a little while (but more than 8 minutes). I had the cards instead of the book, and just went thru them day by day. I didn't follow his food plan either, I was doing a somewhat strick version of atkins. Now I am exploring the BFFM plan, and will start fully on it this weekend.

I have done his exercises. I like them. They are great for beginners, and for folks who can't (or refuse) to go to the gym (or buy equipment). I believe going to the gym is a much better choice if you can do it. I'm thinking of revisiting some of his exercises to see if I can replace arm exercises for a while. I hurt my elbow and can't lift weights...(

I have a bum elbow also. Years of throwing bales (and improper free weights trying to keep up with brothers).

I saw his book on-line for $1 and wondered if it might prove useful.

Thanks.

My husband used this book at first. He really liked it and it was a good place to start. He was recovering from a back injury. He eventually "graduated" on to bigger and better things--now he's into kettlebells. BIG kettlebells. He's buff!

I found it a little much for me--I'm way more deconditioned than that and I have had bilateral frozen shoulders, so I wasn't up to the type of upper body resistance in that book. I'm using Leslie Sansone's Walk at Home tapes and just now adding resistance bands and little wimpy 1 lb. weights. It's not much, but it's something.

It seems to be getting me motivated to move again......and I am NOT a walker. Glad you are.
I am going to try more the mental approach in this book, and see what happens. Others don't seem to work long term. Searching for what works for me.

Still working. The scale is down at where I started this year.

4 days in a row of exercise while watching TV. Definitely better than nothing.
Going to see how long I can get myself moving, even if only 10-12 minutes per day.
