Stay Fit in 30-Minutes

A lot of people say they don’t have time to exercise. Even doctors can’t find the time!

So, if you’re hard-pressed to get a work out in. Angela Stovall, a master trainer at 24 Hour Fitness in Chino, California, put together this 30-minute work out:

Five minutes cardio warm-up: five minutes walking lunges, then alternate between 10 walking lunges and 10 abdominal crunches for three sets.

Hop on the treadmill for five minutes at 3.5 mph: simultaneously doing three-to-five pound bicep curls and shoulder presses. Watch your form.

Then to the mat for 10-20 push-ups: alternate with 10-20 tricep bench dips, three sets of each.

Run stairs or jump on a cardio stair stepper for 5 minutes: then finish with 25 no-weight standing squats and 50 side bends.

This is cute. But 30 minutes doesn’t work for me. Between Yoga classes, lifting weights and running on and off the treadmill, I exercise WAY more than 30 measly minutes.

Oh, and try training like a Spartan or a U.S. Navy Seal. Eye of the tiger baby!

Your Doctor Doesn't Exercise

At my gym there’s an obese doctor. He’s a sweet old guy. But I can’t imagine taking health advice from him. And new research in the British Journal of Sports Medicine claims only 21% of doctors get the recommended amount of exercise. They blame lack of time, no motivation or lack of workout facilities. Even those with on-the-job gyms failed to exercise; from Health Magazine.
