7 minute workout tried and tested


So yesterday I posted about how some science nerds have said that the 7 minute workout, below, is just as effective as a weights session or a long run. Well, I gave it a go today and have to say that I really wasn’t impressed and after I had finished I felt like I hadn’t worked out properly.

Now I did exert myself fully doing the 7 minute workout and even tried it twice with a 20 minute cardio warm up but was just left feeling unsatisfied. Sure I did break out in a  sweat but it just wasn’t testing enough for me. I think it largely depends on your level of fitness also. Now I like to think my fitness level is medium-high so for me this workout didn’t push me enough. I would much prefer a weights session and a longer time spent at the gym. I’m sorry…

The World Health Organisation recommends regular physical activity for older individuals as an important preventative measure against disease and disability. While we all recognize that regular physical activity is important, it can be difficult for many people to achieve.  Against this background, there has been increasing interest in the potential for using popular, commercially available gaming systems, such as the NintendoTM Wii, as a means of exercising in the comfort and convenience ones’ own home.

In our article in Age and Ageing we review the evidence for virtual reality and gaming system use by older adults to exercise in their homes.

Gaining Habits, Enjoying Work

One Small Change at a Time

The goal to improving your life can’t be to lose weight or waist inches. The goal is not to eat less, exercise more, or to break habits. All of these things will be markers that you are reaching your real goal, which is to develop great new habits. Focusing on losing is short term. In football the goal is not to get first downs, it is to win the game. Unlike in a sport though, in life there is no clock to run down, no last strike to pitch. Our game doesn’t end. The things that we do for ourselves, as objectives to our goals should not be allowed to be work or punishments. Creating good new habits, that contribute to better outcomes, or better uses of our time must be it’s own reward, not something we endure until the final weigh-in day, when we declare that we won or…

7 minute workout same as a weights session or a run?


So some science nerds somewhere have said that doing the below 7 minute workout is the same as a weights session or going for a long run. All you need is a chair, a wall and 7 minutes of your time!

But don’t think it’s going to be easy. You need to be in pain to reap any rewards from this short workout program with just 10 seconds break between each exercise.

Now I’m not entirely convinced but wiling to give it a go. I personally prefer to spend time at the gym. Will try this workout routine at home and let you know how I get on. Give it a go but remember if you’re not in pain then it’s not working!!!
