№ 190. Do the Magic Seven

For now, I swear off these vile victuals. For how long, remains an unknown.

This is definitely for those who have very little time for exercise. Don't we all?

Seven minutes is all it takes. Twelve exercises for thirty seconds each and ten second rest intervals. No special equipment or weights necessary, just a wall, a chair and your own body weight. One important thing: the sequence of exercises is critical.

And there is a science to the magic seven!

One more tip from the New York Times blog: The exercises should be performed in rapid succession, allowing 30 seconds for each, while, throughout, the intensity hovers at about an 8 on a discomfort scale of 1 to 10, Mr. Jordan says. Those seven minutes should be, in a word, unpleasant. The upside is, after seven minutes, you’re done (NY Times)
