KHQ MD: Study Says You Can Get Fit(ter) By Exercising 3 Minutes A Week

MSN.COM - "Get fit in three minutes a week" sounds like something from a late-night infomercial, but researchers say 12 minutes a month can result in health benefits for some people.

According to the BBC's Dr. Michael Mosley, HIT activates 80% of your body's muscle cells, more than traditional cardio activity. You won't be Lance Armstrong, but HIT on the bike can improve aerobic fitness and insulin sensitivity. But, as Mosley discovered, if you still can't button your pants, you should blame your genes, not your jeans.
