Sounds interesting, BUT 10 minutes a day?? Dream On!

From the brief review

"for first-timers and regular weekend skiers alike"

So maybe 10 minutes a day is a good start.

I gotta talk to HH.

He's starting to smell like "get rich quick."

Folks, you can't get good at friggin checkers, practicing just 10 minutes a day.

What the @@##$% is he thinking? 10 minutes a day? HH knows better than that.

Considering that many of the initial problems new skiers have in learning is based on muscle, weaknesses, tightnesses and inbalances, as well as postural misalignment, 10 minutes a day is not going to accomplish very much.

There's a whole list of books in the 'flex' series, Net-Flex (tennis), golf flex and this also by Paul Freiani ....

"Reviewer: George from Austin, TX
This book was great! My wife and I are very busy, and this is great for us to spend some time together. We get to do something that we both enjoy. We are also more limber than we have been in a long time! The pictures were great. Nina and John really looked like they were having a good time, which actually made it easier for us to relax. Reading the credits, I was pleased to see the use of an actual couple for the photos, and not just two models who didn't know each other. That way when I see them smiling in the pictures, I know it is genuine."

Coming soon, just 10 mins per day to reach the parts other exercises cannot reach, Kegel-Flex by Lisa Marie.

If we're talking about stretching, my little rountine takes like 20 minutes.

I have seen other books that preach just 10 minutes of stretching, but I'm skeptical. It just doesn't add up.

Well stretching depends on how much you need. many females need only 5 minutes. But in terms of ski fitness, you need much more than 10 minutes of all over conditioning. Its weird. Now more than ever when there are about a gazillion good ski exercises, to reduce it to 10 minutes???

Who is on the cover of the book?

High left hand, lots of inclination, not much angulation!

How about a little tipping? That can't be HH. I may not agree with everything the guy says, however, he does tip his legs really well.
