No time to exercise? Try 10-minute workouts – TODAY Health

“The procrastinators, the super-busy, and the easily bored in pursuit of a manageable fitness routine may find what they seek in the 10-minute workout. 

Experts say what these short bursts of activity, sometimes called exercise snacking, lack in duration they can make up for in intensity. ”

This may or may not already be obvious, so we’ll pass it along.  It takes about 30 minutes of exercise 5 days per week to get the medically recommended 150 minutes of exercise per week.  Many try to do that as three one-hour sessions — others split it up — others of us try to see if we can in general double it.

Either way, if you don’t have a half hour or an hour to devote to exercise,  you can still get very good results,  even the same calorie burn, from three 10 minute bouts of exercise per day as one 30 minute exertion.  If you have little to no free time, find a way to multi-task for 10 minutes while you catch up on the news, read work papers, or get up the stairs to your office, for example.
