  • Hi man. Great video. Any chance you could explain your form on the kettle bell swing please? I know that it’s easy to do the swing in such a way that you lose a lot of the abs focus, could you please talk is through your motion?

    Thanks. Ignore the armchair experts on here, you’re doing good stuff.

  • Hey…you got a really great method and great explanation. Keep it up…would really appreciate it if you could give me me some feedback on my ab workout method here… https://youtu.be/7jhALrhZIRQ

  • I love his job, just doing the talking and he lets the ladies do the exercises. By the way, Tom Holland is a spiderman in this dimension. In what world did this video came from?

  • Hi Kristen, WoW
    this is not a work out, this is called over engineering of pure 10 min workout quality. I enjoyed the new positions and intense core engagement. its challenging, if i disengage the core muscles for one second i would not be able to carry on the next exercise if you know what i mean. Ofcourse you would not know what i mean you talk like its a nice sunny day heheh. I am one of your new fans, inlove and everything. I want to send you a gift right from here From New Zealand right to your office. If there is an office number or address or any method of contact I would be thankful. Thank you Kristin:)

    Happy client.

  • It’s a joke man, the guy joking said the exercise will put hair on your chest and my response was ” I already have too much on mine.”. Lighten up.

  • Thank you for these short but very informative and motivating workouts. I speak for myself when I say that I’m a beginner at working out and attempting to eat cleaner so whenever I’d try to tackle on these crazy workouts that claimed to be for beginners, I’d fail, it’d make me feel like I wasn’t up for it because how could I not complete this simple session built for beginners right? Wrong! Your videos have taught me that’s it’s not the time you spend you working out, it’s about progressing and making that attempt each time. Thank you:)

  • Intelligent routine:
    Good all rounder set. Targeting the right spots to strengthen the core, risk free, no neck strain nor lower back pain. Amazing & really smart set. Love it, will add it as a daily start of the day. Feeling energised thanks to your extra ordinary energy.thanks

  • Hi Tom, I am 76years of age, have had several stents put in the hart, my surgeon is very pleased with the way I do work outs, dumbbells, with. bench, abs on the floor,a little skipping,and sum hanging leg raises, and the ab wheel, but with your standing ab work out I am getting the definition that I all ways wanted, I do all of my work outs on different days, now with the virus I have to stay in, so just ordered an in door exercise to re place the walking, as the N H S have invested so much money in me, I feel I must do my best to show and thank them for my extra time., + I now do your stretch before and after, all of my work outs, Thank you, Tom and all at bow flex, best regards Brianlouis.

  • I decided to add this to my 15 min workout to stretch a little afterwards, it helps me cool down and not feel uncomfortable after the 15 min workout. I’ve been doing the 15 min workout for 5 days now and this is my first day with this exercise so I’m adding it, I �� percent love this exercise it gets me excited for some odd reason and accomplished, might also do it after bedtime to stretch a little.

  • I really enjoy your workouts! I have been doing a few a week for the past month. I find your energy a great match for me. Thanks for being my workout buddy!:)

  • People do not undersand how important core workouts are, you look much better over time even if you have belly with strong core it will mostly be flat and your chest will stick above your mid body, these workouts make men look much more in shape but the problem is everybody is neglecting them
