14 Minutes Is More Than Enough

Take a sledgehammer and wrap an old sweater around it. This is your "shovelglove." Every week day morning, set a timer for 14 minutes. Use the shovelglove to perform shoveling, butter churning, and wood chopping motions until the timer goes off. Stop. Rest on weekends and holidays. Baffled? Intrigued? Charmed? Discuss here.

14 Minutes Is More Than Enough

Post by friscobob » Wed Jan 30, 2019 9:23 pm

I was reading Podcast Episode 38 and realized how much great information was contained therein. I concur with the statement that if anyone thinks 14 minutes is not enough exercise, just give the suggestion to try pushups and squats back to back a try, even 7 minutes of doing this will totally leave you feeling like this is way too much! I did this yesterday, and in 7 minutes of non-stop pushups and squats, I was "swimming" in a pool of sweat! As for cardio, you can get a great cardio workout in about 15 minutes, just try walking as fast as you can for 2 minutes, then at your regular pace for 3 minutes, and repeat this 3 times. Sure, for weight loss an hour of regular pace walking will be more effective, but the above 15 minute routine will wake you up and get you huffing and puffing a bit.
