    "7 minutes to shape your body"

    We are living rush times: work, kids, stress... However, that's not an excuse to forget your body's needs for exercises. 7 minutes is all that you need. You've got them. You know you do.

    If time is a concern, App5ive's 7 Minutes Workout Assistant is what you really need. It goes straightforward: two taps and you'll be on the countdown for the first exercise. Remember that the amount of exercises in the workout depends on each exercise's length and the resting time. You can customize both from settings.

    During the rest break the next exercise will be announced aloud by the app, so you can get ready for it. Of course, you can stop and resume the exercises at any time.

    From settings you can also enable/disable speech and sound effects.

    The strength of this app lies on its simplicity and how quickly it gets you down to business. However, we are missing a less static sample of exercises: more detailed instructions on how carry out each exercises properly would enhance the experience.

    Regardless, a user-friendly and helpful workout app. Recommended.

    High-intensity circuit and resistance training:
    Possibly the best FREE 7 minutes workout app on the market

    7 Minutes, a chair, and a wall is the only thing you need to get in shape again!
    -Voice commands, -Simple and clean interface, -Adjust intervals

    The principle: Do a strength exercise like a squat repeating the motion for a certain amount of time, rest, and then do another strength move. It’s different than traditional resistance training because the rest periods are shorter—usually less than 30 seconds—and the exercises chosen work large muscle groups in order to raise your heart rate. This approach combines aerobic and resistance training into a single exercise bout.

    This approach is extremely effective at improving aerobic fitness, boosting metabolism, and burning body fat. In fact, these type of workouts can increase the number of calories you burn at rest for up to 72 hours after your workout ends as your body expends energy to repair your muscles. High-intensity circuit training may help you lose more fat than traditional resistance training, because resistance training with short rest periods release greater levels of fat-burning human growth hormone immediately after exercise.

    Originally published by the American College of Sports Medicine, the workout took off with the New York Times story, "The Scientific 7-Minute Workout." ( this app helps to guide you through the routine that involves the following twelve exercises performed for 30 seconds each with 10-second rest/transition periods before the next move:

    ✓- Jumping jacks
    ✓- Wall sit
    ✓- Push-up
    ✓- Abdominal crunch
    ✓- Step-up onto chair
    ✓- Squat
    ✓- Triceps dip on chair
    ✓- Plank
    ✓- High knees/running in place
    ✓- Lunge
    ✓- Push-up and rotation
    ✓- Side plank

    Exercise names are missing plural suffixes. Cant tell if I should do one or more than one. Also side plank only exercises one side and not the other.

    Good workout, but very frustrating to have it stop all the time in the middle of the workout. Since it's short, I just remember what's next and do reps. I'm looking for better alternatives.
