A Little Bit of Exercise Makes a Big Difference
A new study published in the American Heart Association’s journal, “Circulation,” states that even small amounts of exercise make a big difference in improving health. Here is more evidence that confirms what we have been sharing with the world for over two years now!
The big problem I still see with all of these studies is that they are still focused mainly on the time spent exercising. While I agree, there are some aerobic benefits that come from longer, less intense workouts. Longer workouts build aerobic endurance; but they don’t build much strength or lean muscle. To build strength and lean muscle, you need to overload or stress the muscles.
It would be most ideal to get a combination of 20 Second Fitness (short, intense workouts) along with some longer workouts. Personally, during the week, I don’t have a lot of free time to exercise and this is when I do all of my short intense workouts. On the weekends, I try to get out and do a 90 to 120 minute bike ride or run.
Make sure that you make at least 4 minutes a day of 20 Second Fitness a way of life — like brushing your teeth. When you have additional time, get out there, have fun and live life to the fullest!
