I recently read a report about a new study published in the journal BioMed Central Endocrine Disorders that claims seven minutes of good, hard weekly exercise is enough to help prevent and even control type 2 diabetes, which affects the body's ability to use insulin to convert food into energy.
The report from www.reuters.com says that the London study asked a group of overweight, but healthy young men to ridd an exercise bike four times daily in 30 second spurts (high intensity interval training) two days a week.
After only two weeks, the volunteers had a 23 percent improvement in how well their bodies used insulin to clear sugar, from the blood stream.
On top of that the effect seemed to last for up 10 days.
I could be doing the math wrong, but according to my calculations, each exercise session was under 60 seconds. How about that for one-minute managing?
