Step 3: Exercise Efficiently
As you get older, how efficiently you work out begins to matter more than ever.
First, you’re working with additional lifestyle factors you have to manage—between kids, a career, and things you want to do, there’s just no time to deal with inefficient workouts.
Second, you’re fighting stress, cortisol, and your own natural metabolic slow down—all things you don’t have to deal with when you’re young.
Third, even if you have all the time in the world, who wants to spend 90 minutes a day on a treadmill?
Fortunately, researchers have efficient exercise down to a science.
With just 20 minutes of effort per day, without ever leaving your house, you can burn as many calories as 60 or 70 minutes of long cardio while building the total-body functional strength you need for a metabolic boost.
