The 7-minute workout that is as beneficial as a long run and a weights session - but you must be in PAIN to reap benefits

  • Scientists devised workout that requires just a chair, a wall and 7 minutes
  • But in order reap benefits you must exercise so intensely that it is painful
  • The 12 exercises are most effective if you carry them out the in correct order with a 10 second break between each

A seven-minute exercise regime devised by scientists has been shown to provide as many health benefits as going for a long run and doing a session of weight training.

The workout requires no more than a wall, a chair and seven minutes of your time.

However the experts say that you must be in pain when performing the regime in order to benefit.
[...]
The exercises should be performed in rapid succession, allowing 30 seconds for each.

But to get maximum benefits the intensity must hover at around and eight on what they term as the discomfort scale of 1 to 10.

Mr Jordan says that the seven minutes should be unpleasant.

The upside is, after seven minutes, you’re done.

I'll have mine grilled, with tomatoes.
To heck with that, I can sew a whole quilt block in seven minutes.
I swiftly walk 5hours straight 4 nights a week.

What if you can't get up off the floor? Just lay on the floor all day until someone comes home to help you get up?

Oh that brings back a memories! :Gslap :lol I was that way a few times when pregnant, couldn't get up without help, everyone else sleeping, and me stuck on the floor after trying to get up off of the couch. What to do, what to do? Hubby had work early in the a.m., the kids had school, I hated to wake anyone up. But my bladder insisted. :Gslap :lol
