Save Time with Better Results?

Good news for the millions and millions of people who say they don't have 2.5 hours to exercise every week? Some recent studies suggest working out more intensely but for less time is more effective. According to the article, "intense bursts of activity are what the body needs to build stronger muscles."

To echo the warnings required in our litigious society: Everyone should get a doctor's clearance before beginning any exercise program, particularly a high-intensity program.

The bottom line:
  • Some exercise is better than none
  • More exercise is better than less
  • Variety (cardio, strength and flexibility/balance) is better than boring
  • You will feel better, sleep better and be more happy

Now is the time. We have a weekend upon us... Get some exercise!
