With our incredibly busy lives fitting in workouts can be tough.
That’s why a new study from McMaster University in Canada is such good news. Researchers found that exercise bursts as brief as 20 seconds — like sprinting up a few flight of stairs — can have major heart health benefits. Rejoice!
In a perfect world, we’d all be spending much more than 30 minutes a week getting our heart rates up—not to mention stretching and strength training, but every little helps!
Even if you’re stuck at your desk all day, you can fit in a workout and keep working at the same time. To find out how, just click here.
So next time you are going to take the lift, take the stairs instead and if you have a minute or two free, why not try some of these simple exercises?
It’s as simple as that!
