It flies. It’s tight. And you rarely feel like it’s on your side. Of course, we’re talking about time. You can blame it – or more accurately, the lack of it – for standing in the way of many things, but scoring a fit, toned body is no longer one of them. The latest research shows that sculpting lean legs, a tight bum and flat abs doesn’t require extra hours at the gym. The trick is to sweat smarter, not harder, and, in many cases, for shorter durations.
In fact, a Canadian study found that people who did brief, fast-paced workouts for a total of 90 minutes a week got just as fit as those who did lower-intensity training for four and a half hours. (Hello! That’s an extra three hours a week for… oh, say, lying by the pool reading 50 Shades Of Grey!)
With that in mind, leverage these shape-up short cuts: some will maximise the few workout minutes you’ve got; others actually shave them away. Now go and make that dream body a reality.
