Get Your Workout Done In 7-Minutes And Reap The Benefits El Paso, Texas


Doctors tell us to exercise, get fit, get moving, but they don’t give us options. If you are going to the gym but are short on time, not much gets done. Exercising at home might be limited for space or tripping over kids, and do you want your husband/wife watching you sweat and gasp struggling through an insane workout video?

Walking is good, but if you are in a neighborhood that doesn’t have sidewalks or is too hot outside, just how likely are you to get up and do it? Suppose you could get all your exercising done in 7 minutes. Would you do it? Is it possible?

Definitely!

7 minutes 12 moves

An article published in the Health & Fitness Journal for the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) takes everything we’ve learned about exercise and turns it upside down. Just 12 exercises in 7 minutes is all it takes to get fit, according to these fitness experts.

Nowhere are there heavy weights or fancy equipment, just a wall, a chair, and the person’s body weight. Say hello to high-intensity interval training- it’s about to change your world!

This 7-minute workout is the equivalent of a serious weight training session and long run but without the weights or the running. That isn’t to say it is easy though. It requires a great deal of effort.
There’s a lot packed into those 7 minutes. It provides many of the benefits that are achieved by disciplined, long term endurance training; it just skips over the long-term part.

Make no mistake though, short does not mean it is easy – or pleasant. In fact, it may be one of the longer 7 minutes of your life.

The good news is, it’s over in 7 minutes. That’s a little more than 5 but less than 10.

It’s worth it though when you look at the numerous health benefits that exercise provides. Plus, it’s great for people who are super busy and can’t seem to squeeze a workout into their schedules. Say hello to no more excuses!

The Science Behind the 7

These 12 exercises were not chosen at random. The reason it works is rooted in some pretty deep science. When you exercise for even a few minutes and are operating at or near your maximum capacity (that means you are working very hard), it causes your muscles to experience molecular changes that are much like those that occur after several hours of riding a bike or running.

Interval training takes it a step farther. You engage in intense activity, then have a brief recovery period, then back to a high-intensity exercise. That is the basis of this workout.

Each exercise should be done for about 30 seconds with a 10 second recovery period - but there’s a twist that ups the effectiveness even more. The exercises are arranged so that they engage the large muscles in the upper body, then in the lower body.

This alternating focus on muscle groups is essential because while the lower body is working like crazy, the upper body can be catching its breath. This makes for a much more efficient workout, but it is also why the order of the exercises is critical.

The exercises are intense but are movements that just about anyone can do. Many can also be adapted for people at different fitness levels. If you are looking for a great workout that will work for you but won’t eat up a lot of your time, you just might have found it.
