In times of stress, doing any workout is better than no workout at all. Why not try to squeeze in 2-4 short training sessions per week? After only 2 weeks of this, you could be hooked on the great post-workout feeling and ready to consider making room for longer sessions in your schedule!
Are short workouts really effective?
Yes, short workouts, such as 7-minute and 10-minute workouts, can be considered a minimum effective dose of exercise. But the more active minutes you include in your day, the better you will feel, and the closer you can get to your fitness goals!
