Created by an exercise physiologist and behavioral coach, this guide counters the top reason people don't exercise--not enough time--with a scientifically proven, clinically tested 10-minute program.
Introducing a breathtaking promise: transform your body and get fit in just "10 minutes a day." Incorporating the latest research in exercise physiology, "The 10-Minute Total Body Breakthrough" is an ingenious program of interval, circuit, aerobic, and resistance training that accrues the benefits of hours at the gym in daily 10-minute workouts. And these are workouts that can be done anywhere, any time-home, office, hotel room, the park, and, of course, the local health club.
Created by Sean Foy, an exercise physiologist and behavioral coach, "The 10-Minute Total Body Breakthrough" counters the #1 reason people don't exercise-not enough time-with a scientifically proven, clinically tested 4-3-2-1 program: 4 minutes of high-energy cardio, 3 minutes of resistance, 2 minutes of core, and 1 minute of stretching and deep breathing. The step-by-step illustrated exercises are simplicity itself-air boxing, wall push-ups, chair jogging, stationary high-knee marching-and are presented in three levels geared to the reader's fitness, with four weeks of routines per level. Their potency lies in the benefits of nonstop movement, thermal effect, intensity, and more: in other words, why it truly takes just 10 carefully crafted minutes to boost metabolic rate, exercise all the major muscle groups, increase cardiovascular endurance, have a positive effect on cholesterol and blood pressure, and deliver a sense of well-being.
