SHORT AND SWEET: 4 NEW 6-MINUTE WORKOUTS FOR BUSY PEOPLE - by Lauren Brooks

Did you know workouts lasting under six minutes can benefit you in more ways than one? Many of you may already know how fabulous snagging a short session can be for not only your mind, but also for the physical body.

If you are bogged down at work all day with hardly a moment to breathe, then having the opportunity to sneak away for six minutes is much more likely than finding an hour or two.


What the Research Says

Research has found that just a few short sessions throughout the day can improve overall stress, blood pressure, and weight control. Shorter intense training sessions can be even more effective in boosting your metabolism than a long drawn-out session. And this research doesn’t just stop at adults. One study in PLos One showed that exercise sessions of as little as five minutes improved adolescents and children's overall health. Pretty amazing, don’t you think?

Hi Lauren! I have been doing kettlebells for 3 months every other day. We are getting ready to move cross country and I am so excited to see these exercises so I can do something while traveling. How often do you recommend doing kettlebells each week?
