Recent research shows that a short but very intense exercise session, even five minutes, could be more effective for metabolism than two hours of aerobics or an hour of running. Let’s read how to tone your muscles in only 5 minutes.
Concentrated sessions of intense exercises, included in your daily routine, improve blood pressure, delivering better health outcomes than a longer workout.
However, not all exercises that last for only five minutes prove to be beneficial. Fitness experts recommend the following workout to tone your muscles:
- 25 jumpings;
- 20 abdomens;
- 15 squats in a slow and controlled rhythm;
- 10 push-ups in a slow and controlled rhythm;
- 10 burpees (an exercise that uses the power of the whole body and takes and is executed in fours or more stages)
Thus, in just a few minutes, you will be able to move all the muscles of the body, which will help you to speed up the metabolism and, implicitly, to tone the muscles and to burn fat deposits.
