EXERCISE IN A FLASH

The One-Minute Workout by Martin Gibala, PhD

Catchy title, right?

One minute might not really enough for peak cardiovascular fitness but the author, a kinesiology researcher at McMaster University, summarizes the data from his and other scientists’ studies to give a state of the art look at how much — no, make that how little — exercise we need.

Put another way, this book gives valuable advice about how to make the absolute most of whatever time you have to devote to exercise. I heartily recommend it, especially for those who say, “But I don’t have time to work out.”

Of course, cardiovascular fitness is just one component of a program that includes strength training, balance work and flexibility. But if you check it off your list in say seven-minutes it leaves time for a bit of yoga and a few pushups.
