“I don’t have time”’ is the reason that most people don’t exercise.Well, they call it a ‘reason’ I like to call it what it really is -an excuse. Most people believe their workouts need to be 60-90 minutes in orderto really count. With this kind of time commitment it is no wonderthat exercise becomes the activity that you simply don’t have timefor. Before you know it one missed workout becomes two and soon yourealize you haven’t put on your gym shorts for a month. Missed exercise is a slippery slope toward irreversible consequences.Obesity wasn’t gained in one day; or even in one year. Neitherwas heart disease. Question: Have you ever wondered if long workouts really deliver thebest results? The truth is that exercise doesn’t have to take 60-90 minutesanymore. The experts agree that short, intense bouts of exercise canactually deliver better results than traditional low intenseexercise. In fact, a study was conducted at the University of Pittsburgh,School of Medicine that tested whether multiple short bouts ofexercise would deliver better results than one long bout of exercise.They found that participants who performed short bouts of exercisestuck with the program longer and experienced greater weight lossthan the participants that performed long bouts of exercise. Throw out the idea that you need an entire afternoon or a freeevening to have a great workout. It simply doesn’t take as much timeas you think.
