How Effective is the 7-Minute Workout? We Asked a Trainer – Healthline

Several apps and articles tout the benefits of a 7-minute workout, but is it really effective? We asked a trainer, and here’s what we found out.

Whether it’s driving to the gym, waiting to use equipment, or just mustering up the motivation to spend an hour working out, most people struggle to maintain a consistent and regular workout schedule.

Fortunately, the 7-minute workout was invented as a solution to this problem while also improving one’s strength and cardiorespiratory fitness. All you need is a chair, a wall, and seven minutes of your time to get your heart rate going.

But, just like the dozens of bogus workout plans out there, you may think this also sounds too good to be true.

That’s why I’ve reviewed the 7-minute workout for you to help you learn all about it, its pros and cons, and whether it’s worth adding to your training program.
