The Micro-Workout Plan

Get the Body You Want without the Gym . . . in 15 Minutes or Less a Day

Barnes and Noble Indiebound
It’s not about how long you exercise—or where—but rather about the type of moves you do. Bowflex Fitness Advisor Tom Holland introduces micro-workouts for optimal health and shows you how “excessive moderation” can help you achieve the body you want.
According to current recommendations, we need at least 2½ hours of moderate-intensity exercise per week to stay fit. But now, Department of Health and Human Services guidelines allow multiple short sessions of physical activity to count towards your daily total, eliminating the need for long, continuous workouts. That’s the concept behind Tom Holland’s approach: excessive moderation utilizing manageable “micro-workouts” that provide maximum, long-term results. In The Micro-Workout Plan, Tom shares his knowledge from 40 years in the fitness industry, debunks myths, explains why micro-workouts succeed, and offers a motivating, manageable method for fitness well-being. He provides actionable steps with 30 5-minute mix-and-match micro-workout routines: just two to four 5-minute micro-workouts a day done whenever and wherever you want will target your whole body and help you achieve the daily activity required for optimal health. Plus, there’s a step-by-step photographic section of 80 exercises teaching proper form. With this book in hand, you can ditch the gym and get the same experience at home.
