The Two Minute Workout For Fat Loss

Have you ever wondered what the least amount of exercise you could do while still obtaining some sort of health benefit from it?

We live busier lives than ever and for some, the idea of exercising 30 minutes to an hour isn't realistic nor enjoyable. For most of us, we love our workout and look forward to it but that isn't the case for everyone. There are a lot of people who dread exercise or lack the time to exercise. It could be their job, family life or just a lack of priorities. I still believe that exercise should be one of your main priorities because it enhances every aspect of your life, but that isn't the point of the this discussion.

Do This Sprint Workout 3x Per Week To Burn Body Fat

Last week I just got done writing about the benefits of a high intensity workout and how it can save you time in the gym.  This week I am going to go over another sprint workout that has been shown to help reduce body fat.

The 1 Minute Workout Review (It's Really 10 Minutes Long)

What if I told you you could get the benefits of a 50 minute cardio workout in just ten minutes, would you believe me?

It almost sounds too good to be true. Ten minutes of cardio versus fifty minutes of cardio, the longer duration has to have more benefits, right?

Not so fast, it all depends on the intensity of the exercise. Put simply, if your workout duration is short then you need to push the intensity and if you have a longer workout duration then the intensity needs to be lowered.
