The latest trend in exercise are so-called "Express Outouts." You'll find them in different gyms and they're given different names, but they have one thing in common, they're designed for busy people who have trouble finding time to work out. The question is do express workouts really work?
Can you really get in shape in 22 minutes or it just a way for gyms to attract more business? For one sports club they say they started the express k-line because they anted to create something simple and easy that anybody could do.
The workout consists of a series of machines called a Circuit. Twelve reps on each machine and your through. Sounds easy right? Maybe a little to easy.
For one Orthopaedic Surgeon he thinks it is a marketing component to this, they're trying to attract customers. But it is also a way of introducing many individuals to the gym.
He also says that in the long run a good exercise program should incorporate both the aerobic component as well as a strengthening component and a flexibility component.
Experts recommend 30 minutes of aerobic exercise at least three times a week. Studies show that'll improve your cardiovascular health.
