Too Busy for Exercise? Find a Better Excuse...
Many people tell me "I am just too busy and don't have time to exercise." Well, I used to say that when finding an excuse for not exercising, not anymore. We can find at least 15 minutes a day for exercising.
For example, Canadian researchers report in the June issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology that just six minutes of intense exercise a week can keep people as fit as three hour-long jogs. According to Martin J. Gibala, PhD, associate professor of kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, "Those six minutes come from four 30-second bursts of all-out effort with four-minute rests in between each sprint. This "sprint interval training" adds up to three 20-minute sessions a week." I agree as it is better to exercise at least six minutes than none. Although, I recommend 30 minutes daily.
I encourage all busy people to exercise at least those 6 minutes and gradually increase to 30-45 minutes.
