Health Tip of the Week: The seven minute workout

/

By Ian Hart

Many people have this idea about working out: You have to spend hours at the gym and work out five to seven days a week. This is true if you want to be a bodybuilder, a professional athlete or compete in certain events, but the reality is that you can get a lean, toned and attractive body in less than 90 minutes a week. Yes, you heard that right, only 90 minutes a week.

Many people find it hard to believe but when we introduce them to people who have achieved dramatic results only doing 70-90 minutes of training a week and have lost 60 to 70 pounds and between 10% and 15% of body fat, their skepticism quickly turns to belief, motivation and excitement about the future of their own health and bodies.

The key is knowledge — knowing what exercises to do and how much of them to do. Ostensibly, if you just did a 7-10 minute workout each day, seven days a week, that is approximately 50-70 minutes of training a week, and I am sure you will see great results.

Here is a quick routine to do at home:

• Run a set of stairs (30 seconds)

• Squats (30 seconds)

• Push ups (30 seconds)

• Walking lunges (30 seconds)

• Jumping Jacks (30 seconds)

• Jog In Place (30 seconds)

Do three sets for a total of 9 minutes of working. You can do this pretty much anywhere, anytime and it takes less than 1 percent of your day. No excuses!
