Description

Fast Exercise Just as Dr Michael Mosley's Fast Diet - the original 5:2 - alerted the world to a healthy new way to lose weight, Fast Exercise turns conventional wisdom on its head when it comes to the workout . . . Can you really get the benefits of exercise in just a few minutes a day? Michael Mosley and Peta Bee investigate the science behind a radically different approach to exercise - one that is incredibly time efficient. Research has shown the extraordinary impact that ultra-short bursts of HIT (high intensity training) can have, whatever your age or level of fitness. In Fast Exercise, Michael Mosley, a self-confessed sloth, teams up with super-fit health journalist Peta Bee to dispel common exercise myths. They offer practical advice and a range of workouts that take just a few minutes a day and can be done any time, anywhere. Fast Exercise is for everyone: those who don't enjoy exercise but want to lose fat and stay healthy, those who love exercise and want to enhance their performance, and those who just want to understand the science behind it all.

    First the good. This book deserves a star, just one, for bringing mainstream attention to the subject of interval training. Although athletes and gym warriors have known about it for years, the public have generally been less clued up. And now for the bad. The book loses four stars because it absolutely is not necessary to spend ages talking about something that could genuinely be explained in a leaflet, or quick delve into search engine results. There is no magic bullet with interval training; many routines will work. The crucial ingredient is simply intensity, i.e. pushing hard. Get the all clear from your doctor, find an exercise bike, and give it a blast. The well researched Tabata protocol, for example, is do a warm up (say 3 minutes), and then do the 'fast exercise'. That's 20 seconds peddling like crazy, followed by a 10 second rest. When you do that, repeat the 20 fast / 10 rest another 7 times. While the book lists research, and real life stories, what most people want, is a quick and honest idea about what to do, followed by RESULTS! This book really stretches out that process, and I can't see that as doing the right thing. Do yourself a favour, research interval training online for 10 minutes, and use the money you've saved on some new gym kit.
