If you feel your workouts aren’t yielding the desired results, you may want to give a scientifically backed workout a try. The 7 minute workout is, according to science, the most effective and efficient workout when it comes to burning calories.
What Is The 7 Minute Workout?
The 7 minute workout is a series of 12 exercises specifically ordered to alternate upper body, lower body, and your core. Alternating muscle groups in this manner allows sufficient time to recover without actually stopping your workout.
For example, if you first perform push-ups followed by squats this would allow your upper body to rest from doing push ups while you performed your squats.
How To Do The 7 Minute Workout
The goal is to perform each exercise for 30 consecutive seconds, followed by a 10 second rest before beginning the next exercise. The routine is specifically ordered for maximum efficiency, and muscle recovery, so it’s recommended to use the following exercise order.
1. Jumping Jacks
2. Wall Sit
3. Push Up
7. Triceps Dip
9. High Knees
11. Push-Ups With Rotation
12. Side Plank
