7-Minute Scientific Workout

Video

If you haven’t discovered this yet – take a look! The 7-minute scientific workout is a high-intensity, short duration circuit training routine provided by the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine).

There are 12 exercises, each completed within 30 seconds with 10 seconds of break in between. All you need is a wall and a stable bench/chair.

I like this video because it has a timer, a cartoon showing you how to do the exercise, and up-beat pump up music which will get you through the 7 minutes in no time!

Your “intensity” should be around a 8/10 as you complete this to allow an increase in your heart rate!

Do NOT solely use this as your exercise regimen – it should be used in combination with other cardio/strengthening routines for a full fitness benefit.

Challenge: Complete this routine 2x in a row, every day for the next 7 days and see how you feel!! (Beginners, start off by completing this 1x/day and gradually progress to 2x/day).

Disclaimer: if you have a health condition, please consult your healthcare provider before trying this routine.
