A lot of people have trouble squeezing a workout into their busy day. And no wonder. Add up how long it takes to get to the gym, change, do your workout, hit the shower, change again — no surprise it’s tough to find the time!
What if I told you there was an effective, scientifically proven workout that you can do in just seven minutes — in the comfort of your own home? Sounds too good to be true, but according to the American College of Sports Medicine’s Health & Fitness Journal you can stay in great shape with just seven minutes of intense exercise a day.
There’s very good evidence that high-intensity interval training provides many of the fitness benefits of prolonged endurance training but in much less time.
So if you’re short on time, or maybe it’s too rainy to run, or if you just can’t get to the gym, check out this post on the New York Times Well blog. All you need is a wall and a chair. And seven minutes!
