We all want to stay in shape, but it’s easy to get too busy to get to the gym or take that 30 minute run.
If you find yourself regularly skipping any kind of exercise because you don’t have the time, try shifting your focus to something easy to accomplish: the 7 minute workout app. It can be used anytime, anywhere, without any equipment.
Scientists have developed a 12-step high-intensity workout that uses your body weight, a chair and a wall to and it only takes 7 minutes to complete.
The research shows that even a few minutes of high intesity training approaching your maximum capacity produces changes within muscles comparable to those of several hours of running or bike riding.
And if that’s just too much of a time commitment to get started, there’s a 4-minute workout app that’s based on a regimen originally used by Japanese Olympic athletes.
Both of these apps are available for the iPhone from a company called TinyHearts or you can go to http://7minuteworkout.us on any computer to be led through the 12 exercises.
Fitness is a time committment, but with these options, it doesn’t have to be a huge time committement.
