7 Minute Workout – The Workout for the Busy Student

September 23, 2013  |  Productivity, Study Hacks

With a busy student life one of the things which you can easily forget is working out every once in a while. A schedule with classes during the day and extracurricular activities in the evening doesn’t have much space for gym sessions, football practise or swimming a mile or two.

Even though we understand how important regular exercise is for your mental health as well it can get out of focus. Therefor you can try the 7 Minute Workout.

“The Scientific” 7 Minute Workout

The idea behind the workout is very simple. A set of exercises you each do for 30 seconds with 10 seconds of rest. In total? 7 minutes. Check out an elaborate article about the workout.

How it works is easy as well. There are a bunch of iPhone apps available to use as a guidance during the workout and all you need is a chair. I summarize the workout in this Vine (a 6 sec video, I’m doing more of these simple explanations, check out my channel :))

So that’s all you need. Sporting gear, an iPhone app and a location. And I’ve talked in a serious voice to you, which probably helps.

How to implement the workout?

Having a way to do this every couple of days is key. You need to find a moment during your day where you can do this workout, just to get some regular exercise.

Try in the evening before going to bed. A good reason for a before-bed shower as well. Or try right when you get up. What is a better way to start the day?

I’ve been working with the morning-routine. Try to get up 15 minutes before you get up regularly, as that is around the time you need to get your clothes, go to the location and get back. Now try to do this 3 days a week (monday, wednesday and friday).

How did this work for you? Any thoughts?
