The 7 Minute Workout That Science Says Actually Works

According to scientists at the McMaster University of Canada (Hamilton, Ontario), even a few minutes of intensive charging provides the same molecular changes in the muscular system as a result of an hour of jogging or 30 minutes of cycling.

According to exercise physiologist Chris Jordan, there is now a strong evidence base that extra intensive interval training can provide the same effect as professional training. The only secret is that it will take much less time.

A 7-minute workout session involves an alternation of intensive workloads with a short rest. The recovery period between exercises is 10 seconds. It is extremely important to perform the exercises in the developed sequence. The duration of each set is 30 seconds.

Of course, you must understand that these 7 minutes will seem like a real hell to you from the beginning. But the result will impress you with the opportunities in maintaining a great shape, in saving money on the fitness center subscription and in the aspect of planning your time management.
