A reader recently shared this workout as part of her goal for LEAN14 (thanks Dawn!). I was so interested when I learned more about it, so I wanted to share it with you! LEAN14 is all about small changes and attainable goals, and what’s more attainable than a short 7-minute workout?
Basically the workout is a form of HIIT, engaging the large muscles in your upper and lower body.
As for the shortness of the workout, according to work by scientists at McMaster University and other institutions, “even a few minutes of training at an intensity approaching your maximum capacity produces molecular changes within muscles comparable to those of several hours of running or bike riding.”
What do you think about the 7-Minute Workout?
Do you think it’s bologna that it can be so effective in such a short amount of time, or do you agree with the HIIT premise?
