The New York Times—not a fitness organization—has released an "update" to its popular "7-minute workout," which was popular because of humanity's inherent laziness. Would you like a 7-minute workout that is actually worth something, rather than nothing? Fine then.

SEVEN BETTER 7-MINUTE WORKOUTS

- Do burpees for seven minutes as fast as you can. Do not stop.

- Do as many heavy deadlifts as you can. Take a 20-second break. Do as many as you can again. Continue for seven minutes.

- Do air squats as long as you can until your leg freezes and you topple to the ground. Then get in pushup position and do as many pushups as you can until seven minutes have passed.

- Go find an open field. Sprint from one end to the other at top speed. Then turn around and sprint back at top speed. Continue for seven minutes.

- Jump up as high as you possibly can into the air. Come down. Jump back up. Do this as many times as you can in seven minutes.

- Go find the highest flight of stairs you can. Run up it as fast as you can. At the top, do 15 pushups. Run back down. Repeat for seven minutes.

- Do as many pullups as you can until you fall off the bar. Then immediately do as many pushups as you can. Then immediately do as many squats as you can. Repeat this cycle for seven minutes. Die.

The shorter it is the harder it has to be.


So to speak
"I thought it over and have decided to say: Your comment is quite possibly one of the stupidest comments I have ever read on Slowtwitch, which is kind of like saying, 'this might just be the worst 3-bean salad I’ve ever had at Sizzler.'"

Or, you know... do two tabata intevals. Which, "they" say is more effective than going straight through. Mountain climbers. Burpees. Sprints. Box jumps. Jump rope... etc.
