Workouts Top Trainers Do When They Only Have 15 Minutes

When people are pushed for time they may feel like getting an effective workout is impossible. Research has shown many times that intense training for a shorter period of time is more beneficial than sweating for 60 minutes on a treadmill. “This is due to what we call the ‘Afterburn Effect’ where the metabolism can be accelerated for 30-48 hours after the workouts,” Joshua Carter, a personal trainer and Fit Body Boot Camp owner with over 20 years of experience, says. One minute of grueling exercise can be comparable in its physiological effects to 45 minutes of milder workout routine, according to a recent study. This is good news for people who have busy lives and chaotic schedules.
