Dominica News And From Around The Caribbean

Many people tell me “I am just too busy and don’t have time to exercise” Well, you know what I guess you are to busy to eat healthy too. I used to say that when finding an excuse for not exercising, not anymore. Exercising is not only going to a gym, exercising could be just walking home instead of taking the bus. It’s all about getting you heart rate up. I’m sure that everyone can find at least 15 minutes a day for exercising.

For example, Canadian researchers report in the June issue of the Journal of Applied Physiology that just six minutes of intense exercise a week can keep people as fit as three hour-long jogs. According to Martin J. Gibala, PhD, associate professor of kinesiology at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, “Those six minutes come from four 30-second bursts of all-out effort with four-minute rests in between each sprint. This “sprint interval training” adds up to three 20-minute sessions a week.” I agree as it is better to exercise at least six minutes than none.

I know exercising is the last thing that most of us want to do at the end of a busy workday. I encourage all busy people to exercise at least those 6 minutes and gradually increase to 20 – 30 minutes. Your body will thank you for it and you will feel great about yourself. 😎
