Beachbody has just released a new workout program from Mr. Shaun T the creator of Insanity. It involves 25 minute workouts 5 days a week, and is called Focus T25. In recent findings studies have shown that " the goal is simply to get 150 minutes of exercise per week" and the debate is whether or not to break that up over the week or just do one or two long sessions per week. My thinking is that it would be easier to divide the 150 minutes over the week and do shorter more intense workouts 5-6 days a week. Other health benefits have been linked to shorter high intensity workouts. To quote this article from the NY Times. "Other recent studies have shown that 16 to 30 minutes per week (depending on the study) of highly intense exercise also improves certain markers of health, with volunteers developing improved blood pressure and blood sugar levels after several weeks of these truncated workouts." For this reason I am really looking forward to Focus T25. As previously mentioned it is only 25 minutes a day and 5 days a week which is an easy schedule for me to follow. In addition it looks to be a pretty intense program.
