Start Your Day Well

The Scientific 7-Minute Workout follows on from Michael Mosley’s findings that short bursts of intensive exercise can help to reduce many health risk factors and reduce the chances of developing diabetes and heart disease while also helping to manage weight.

The 7 minute workout is a simple circuit training workout which consists of 12 bodyweight exercises – the only equipment required is a chair, which is used for 2 of the exercises (the step-ups and the triceps dip).

Each exercise is performed for 30 seconds with 5 seconds rest between each – so 12 exercises will take 7 minutes (35 seconds x 12 = 420 seconds / 7 minutes).
