Pressed for Time? Here's a Killer Workout

We're often short of time for our workouts. Work, family, and other commitments take up a lot of time (and deservedly so) - and since there are only 24 hours in a day, we must figure out ways to work out AND sleep!

The best workouts, by far, are brief. A standard rule of thumb is do more in less time. But how much time is enough? It is my firm belief that you can get a lot of work done in 10-15 minutes!


Yeah, 15 minutes or so. You see, a lot of us go to the gym to fraternize or show people how strong we are. We grunt and groan, using poor form, and crushing our joints in the process.

Way back when, guys like Serge Nubret used to bench press 150-200 pounds, tops. They made light weights heavy by using strict form and slow, deliberate movements. This not only saved their joints, but it also made them "feel" the weight.

In short, they made the mind-to-muscle connection. This is key to building muscle. You gotta feel it.

Jon Benson, in 7 Minute Muscle, knows this; in fact, he's built a killer workout system based on 7, 14, and 21 minute durations. His system is built completely around the mind-muscle connection. If you want to build a killer body without killing yourself in the gym, you have to check out 7 Minute Muscle!

The short story: Work one major muscle group per work out and workout every day.
