In our busy world we all want more for less, and time spent exercising is no exception. We also want to fit things into a very tight schedule.
A good solution is the seven minute workout, a combination of exercises that work together because the effort moves around the body. Doing this as soon as you wake up is a great way to get the blood pumping and make sure you won’t doze off again. You are at home so no dress code or etiquette, although do consider any downstairs neighbours if you are doing the jumping jacks.
Each exercise should be performed (or held) for 30 seconds, then take a five second break.
Try the follow-along videos to help you keep going; there are lots of variations. Once the workout is done, jump in the shower and head for that well-earned breakfast. What a way to start the day!
I did this workout this morning but thought there wasn't enough workout for the arms so I did plenty of push ups at the end instead of just one.
This is good, old-fashioned fitness at its best. Get it over with, nice and simple exercises, ideal for starting the day.
wow. This is SO hard - but I will make getting through it my new fitness goal. And oh, the feeling of achievement at doing even some of it!
Just what I was looking for - fab!
