Why 5 min a day is better than 30 minutes a day

When I graduated from Stanford Engineering, and realized I had gained 15 pounds, I knew that if I wanted to stop the the upward trend of my scale I would have to change.

I was “exercising” at the time, but I was mostly inconsistent – sometimes doing it but something not.

At first I thought I had to exercise for at least 30 min every day. After all that’s what most government guidelines say, right?

What I didn’t know was that I’d get much better results if I exercised for 5 minutes a day, rather than 30 minutes a day – and in this video I explain exactly the reason why.

Unless your exercise program is tailored to address this one reason, then you’re unlikely to get and stay in shape, do that first pushup or pullup, let alone get the long-term benefits of exercise like stronger bones and heart.
