If you are currently using more than a 20-minute aerobic routine you could be wasting valuable time. Long static aerobic routines used to be the norm. Not so much anymore. By utilizing a better method it shortens your aerobic time down to a very effective 20 minutes.
I am always searching for ways to free up more time. It seems that every year my life becomes busier and busier. So when I find something that can shave off more than 30 minutes of the time it took to do my normal workout and be more effective, it is really a treat.
What I’m talking about is using an extremely simple method of timed intensity levels used within a 20-minute routine. It is so simple it is stupid.
Here is how simple it is. You break up your 20-minute workout into 4 five-minute segments. Each 5-minute segment starts out with you doing whatever aerobic exercise you choose at a comfortable level for 2 minutes. Don’t make this level too easy but don’t make it too taxing either.
At minute 3 increase your intensity for one minute. Then do the same for each of minutes 4 and 5. During minute 5 or the last minute of the first 5-minute segment you pretty much want to be at an intense level of exercise. This is where you really need to push yourself to the limit.
After completing the first 5 minutes segment of increasing intensity start the next 5-minute segment back at your beginning level. Continue to step up the intensity of your workout for the remaining 3 five minute segments thus completing your 20 minute aerobic workout.
