The New York Times writes: “Ever since [we] published the Scientific 7-Minute Workout in May last year, readers have been writing and tweeting their requests for an updated, more advanced version. For them, the workout became too easy or humdrum, as tends to happen when exercises are repeated without variation. So here it is: a new, more technically demanding regimen, one that requires a couple of dumbbells but still takes only seven minutes.”
According to the Times, these short, intense, efficient workouts strengthen muscle groups throughout the upper body, lower body and torso. And they may well “produce greater gains than an hour or more of gentler exercise.” So if you don’t have a lot of free time….
The Times has notably made the workout available as a free web app that you can access on your phone, tablet or other mobile devices. The app “offers a step-by-step guide to both 7-minute workouts [the old and new ones], offering animated illustrations of the exercises, as well as a timer and audio cues to help you get the most out of your seven minutes.” Click here to access it.
