The correct way to exercise has been a hot debate topic for decades. New and improved methods are constantly available, and experts are always promoting the newest trends. Everything from seven-minute workouts to hour-long programs has bombarded our society. So how do you know which methods really work? How long is long enough to exercise?
Half An Hour Gets It Done
If you’ve been busting your tail in the gym for hours at a time, but not seeing the results you want, it could be because new research has shown that high-intensity, short workouts are actually more effective than longer, less intense workouts. According to this research, 30 minutes a day is all you need to improve your health and change your body.
Many people are excited to hear the news that longer doesn’t equal better when it comes to exercise. After all, we’re a busy society. Between work, family time, and extracurricular activities, you may have been avoiding exercising because you couldn’t find the time. But instead of carving out two hours each day, you only need to find half an hour in your schedule.
Intensity Is Key
The important thing to remember when you’re doing a 30-minute exercise routine is that it will only work if it’s high-intensity. In other words, shorter doesn’t mean easier. To get the best results, you have to give it all you’ve got for those 30 minutes, and then you’re done for the day. The workout you choose should really get your heart rate up and should leave you sweating and panting. If it’s doing that, then you know you’re effectively working to better your health.
