7 Minute Workout!

Gretchen Reynolds of the New York Times must be listening in on my conversations. I've decided to start spending my (mandatory unpaid) 30 minute breaks at work working out! What better way (in my book) to spend 30 minutes. I've noticed that you can truly get a good workout within 30 minutes with high interval training - you confuse your muscles!

Reynolds posted a about a 7 Minute Workout that reaches all muscle groups. (Just what I've been looking for!)

The following 12 exercises should be performed in rapid succession for 30 seconds per exercise with a 10 second rest period between. 

From the May 12 issue of The New York Times Magazine.

I'm least looking forward to the push-up/rotation exercise - push-ups in general make me want to gag.

Interval training is my favorite - it keeps you on your toes & doesn't allow a moment for you to get bored.
