Get the New 7-Minute Workout on Your Mobile Device: A Free App from The New York Times


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.

    I’ve attempted to locate the app via the Apple app store, but I cannot. Do you know the exact name of it?

  • Carmen says:

    It is ScientificExs, i guess.

    Are you kidding? Have you tried to bring up the NYTimes website? For the past weeks, it is nearly impossible and certainly not possible for the New Scientific 7-Minute, etc.

    To get the Advanced 7-minute Workout, Google Advanced 7-Minute Workout. Click on the NYT article the follow the link. Both sets of exercises will pop up. Both are fabulous. The first, regularly done, has done wonders for the way I look and how my clothes feel. Highly recommended

    I used the app on my iPad for at least a year. Suddenly, the app no longer worked. I deleted it and tried to reload. Apparently it no longer loads as an app. One must search for it on Google and then click the link each time. I’m hoping someone will tell me this isn’t true. If it is true, what a bummer. Way too much trouble to do it this way. What happened?
