This Insanely Popular 7 Minute Workout Is Actually Helping People Lose Weight

by Fahad Saleem

A massively popular workout, known as the 7 minute workout, is going viral online these days. The beauty of this workout is that you don’t need to go to any gym to do that. You don’t need weights, heavy equipment, treadmill and machines. You can do this 7 minute workout in your bedroom and get  results. This workout increases strength, kills fat and tones muscles.

Here’s the workout:

This 7 minute workout to kill body fat is backed by a comprehensive study done at McMaster university. The workout is also based on the idea of Chris Jordan, the director of exercise physiology at the Johnson & Johnson Human Performance Institute.

The claims made by regarding this workout aren’t unfounded. I have personally tried this workout, and let me assure you, this workout really does leave you sweaty and exhausted in 7 minutes. Recently, a woman detailed her experience with the 7 minute workout.

The woman says that in the first few minutes she didn’t feel the exhaustion. But by the time she reached Planks, she started feeling windy and was sweating.

The 7 minute workout is a combination of really good, grueling exercises which collectively target every muscle. Exercises like planks, step-ups squats really grill your fat.

The 7 minute workout also has lunges, which involve taking big strides at the same place. Alternating pushups, leg raises, side planks and running in place really suffice to achieve all your daily activity goals.

The idea of short interval workouts is a game changer. It saves time. Most of us find it almost impossible to spend even an hour in the gym. You can take care of your health with short workouts daily. It literally takes seven minutes, less that what you spend in your bathroom.

Johnson & Johnson has made a few changes to the original 7 minute workout. You can watch the J&J workout in this video:

J&J has made a special 7 minute workout app for iPhone and Android. You can install the app and play the workout and practice it in your room. The workout consists of 72 exercises. They include jumping sit-ups, squats, push-ups, planks etc.
