Now, The Seven-Minute Workout

November 17, 2016
Plain English Version

The US election for president was stressful. Not only for people in America but for people around the world. It is time to regain mental and physical health. Nothing works better than an exercise program. Yesterday, we gave you a ten-minute program. Today we are giving you a seven- minute program. The routine  is called H.I.I.T.,  high-intensity interval training.

With this program, you will only use your body weight, a chair and a wall. You will get the benefits of a long run and a weight room workout with only about seven minutes of steady discomfort.

Perform each exercise in rapid succession. Allow 30 seconds for each. Rest for ten seconds between each exercise. The intensity of your discomfort should be at around an eight on a scale of 1 to 10.

Yes, the seven minutes will be unpleasant. The good news is that after seven minutes, you are done.

This program is good for you. Give it a try.
