The scientific seven-minute workout is the result of a study published in ACSM’s Health & Fitness Journal, which set out to find the ideal high-intensity circuit training workout that relies only on a person’s body weight and achieves maximum results in a short period of time.
The team behind the study found 12 exercises that, when performed in rapid succession for 30 seconds each, can have the same results as a long endurance workout. The 12 exercises are:
1. Jumping jacks
2. Wall sit
5. Step-ups onto a chair
7. Tricep dips on chair
9. Run in place with high knees
11. Push-ups and rotate to side plank
12. Side plank on elbow
