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.

  • Don Frazier says:

    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?
