30 minutes better than an hour of training

23rd August 2012

A study has suggested that adults who exercise for shorter bursts of time can lose as much weight as those who work out for longer.

They found that half an hour of training a day was as "equally effective" at helping with weight loss as 60 minutes worth of exercise. The research from a team at the University of Copenhagen study, published in the American Journal of Physiology, concluded that sweating for half the time was "enough to turn the tide" for obesity.
