14 minutes?

Post by Jethro » Fri Jun 29, 2012 6:26 pm

Reinhard recommends 14 minutes of exercise during weekdays.

This is good but what if I can results as good or better in two minutes per week?

According to UK scientists two 20-second cycle sprints on exercise bikes, three times per week, would be as good as or better than five 30-minute sessions of moderate exercise a week. With warm-up and cool-down, the total time of each session would be only 10 minutes.

Would we violate nos if we substituted 14 minutes with this protocol?

No S is separate from 14 minutes so you wouldn't be violating it. !4 minutes isn't just about preventing diabetes, though. It's about moderately simulating some of the functional strength that humans have had to use in the past. I don't think any claims have been made for other benefits, though I'm sure there are some.

10 minutes is respectable as well, especially if it's consistent.

There is no S better than Vanilla No S.
