Revision as of 08:48, 24 May 2013



Ten Minute Core Workout or "tenminutecore" is an application written using Qt SDK

It is an exercise utility to help increase your body's core muscle strength.

Using Espeak it will instruct you through a 10 minute, no rest core exercise. It's main purpose is to keep time during your workout and call the next position.

Designed for building your core muscles for bouldering but is a good core based exercise applcation.

Under the Hood

tenminutecore is basically a GUI for triggering a shell script I wrote via QProcess.


More information on the package can be found ...

The latest versions can be found in the devel repository and can be installed using the N900 Application Manager (HAM).


Come on, it's one button! Press the button to start the exercise.

CAUTION:- 0.0.7 has the facility to secure the device with a lock code.

Do NOT use this feature if you do not know your device "secure" code.
