[Workout Wednesday] The Scientific 7-Minute Workout
Looking for a fast, effective way to get fit? Try this scientific 7-minute workout!
By now you’ve probably heard about High-Intensity Interval Training – a workout method that has become very popular over the past few years due to its ability to provide an intense and effective workout in just a few minutes per day.
A recent scientific study declared that you can achieve maximum results in minimum time if you strategically “stack” your exercises in the correct order – and all you need for this workout is a chair, a wall, and the weight of your own body. This “scientific 7-minute workout” consists of 12 basic bodyweight exercises. It can be done in just 7 minutes in your own living room, and is reported to decrease body fat and improve overall health when done daily.
However, make sure to give yourself a rest at least once a week, and of course, consult your doctor before beginning any new high-intensity workout regimen.
To perform this workout:
Perform each exercise below at a high-intensity effort for 30 seconds. For static exercises such as Wall Sit and Plank, hold the position for 30 seconds. For exercises that target two sides (such as your legs), alternate each side for 30 seconds. Rest for 10 seconds between each exercise. This circuit can be repeated 2-3 times if desired.
