    "Be fit... in 7 minutes?"

    Scientific you said? Yes, the workout outlined in this App is based on the workout outlined in this article. The article says that "participants can repeat the 7-minute bout 2 to 3 times, depending on the amount of time they have". In other words, this is a healthy and efficient workout designed as a minimum exercise pack that is recommended to be repeated several times over time.

    The workout features a 6 mins of work out time + 5 seconds break after each 30-seconds exercise. Thus, be ready to do jumping jacks, wall sits, push-ups, abdominal crunch, squats and up to 12 different exercises in only 6 minutes, resting only 5 seconds after each exercise. It sounds exhausting, isn't?. Yes, that's why it is called high-intensity workout. The app indicates when each exercises starts with a 5-seconds countdown a pic that shows how to carry it out and the 30 seconds count-down. At the bottom there's the global countdown (7 mins).

    That's it. If you feel you actually can and have time enough to repeat the workout, do it! Repeating it 2-3 times is recommended. From settings you can enable or disable the workout voice and keep track of your progress thanks to a workout log.

    Scientific 7-minute Workout features the following:

    ✓ Set how long you want the breaks to be; with 5 second breaks at default, the overall exercise is exactly 6 mins 55 seconds (12 30-second exercises and 11 breaks), this can be increased or decreased
    ✓ Flat UI design, showing all completed exercises above the current exercise, and upcoming exercises directly below it
    ✓ Option to go back or skip forward to different exercises during the workout by scrolling up and down during the workout and tapping the exercise you want to go to
    ✓ 2 progress bars, one for the current 30-second exercise and one for the overall 6-minutes of working out (remember, what makes it a 7 minute workout is the breaks in between)
    ✓ Ability to pause during workout

    Pro Features include:

    ✓ Complete Workout Log, showing you what days you have completed the workout and how many times
    ✓ Voice commands, telling you when to break and when to start which exercise; useful for if you don't want to look at your phone/tablet while working out

    Notice that if you read the science article, it recommends the workout to be completed 2-3 times. This means it is understandable to start out at doing the workout one time through, but eventually you want to move up to at least 2 times through to maximize the effectiveness of the workout.
