Wouldn’t it be awesome if you didn’t have to do an hour workout to see your body get leaner, stronger & have blood tests worth bragging about?
Great news… You can get some major bang for your buck by doing quick short bursts of exercise 3x a day
Huge benefits were shown after doing just 60 seconds of movement 3 x a day. To make this easy to understand and put into action today I made the video below for you.
Below my video is the science backed research that proves this to be true AND a list of reasons why you should start “workout snacks” now!
From Eating Well Magazine Sept 2021 The Perks of Micro Workouts:
“A recent study published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology, had inactive young adults do a 20 second bike “sprint snack” in which they pedaled as hard as they could. Participants repeated these mini workouts three times a day, each separated by one to four hours of rest. After 6 weeks their cardiorespiratory fitness improved by 9%.
Other research published in Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise found that sedentary but healthy women improved their cardio respiratory fitness by doing just 20 seconds of vigorous stair climbing three times a day for three weeks.
Preliminary research suggests that among people who typically sit for eight hours a day, those who completed five 4-second cycling sprints every hour during the workday (for a total of 160 seconds of exercise) had 31% lower triglyceride levels and 43% higher body fat metabolism the next day!”
The reason why Exercise “Snacks” work is because when you suddenly move your body you cause a rush of blood to push through your arteries (think of turning your garden hose on full blast for 20 seconds) .
This rush of blood causes your body to produce more Nitric Oxide (CLICK HERE for info). An increased production of NO (Nitric Oxide) causes your blood vessels to dilate and relax.
This widening and relaxing of your blood vessels makes your body lower it’s blood pressure and move a whole lot of Oxygen throughout your entire body.
With more oxygen in your body with that rush of blood you will immediately get these results
1. More brain power with higher memory recall and more learning capacity (the brain needs lots of O2)
2. Better bowel movements
3. More Muscle production (Key to longevity and weight loss)
2. Decreased blood pressure and lower cholesterol
3. Increased energy and mood boost (The rush of blood carries more oxygen to all your cells, waking up your body, decreasing stress and releasing endorphins)
Do your workout snacks 2-3 times a week for 6-8 weeks and you will drastically Reduce your risk of
1. Heart Attack, Strokes & Diabetes
2. Alzheimers and Dementia
3. Loss of Libido
4. Anxiety & Depression
