There’s a big misconception about time.
It’s not about how long your workouts last. It’s the quality of your workouts.
Are you activating the muscles properly?
Are you doing the moves correctly and timely?
Those are the main things you should be considering.
A lot of people think that you need to spend an hour in the gym.
No, it’s completely unnecessary.
This only goes for full-time athletes and professional bodybuilders.
Ideally, your workouts should not go over 30 minutes.
But for busy persons (most of us), they only need a quick high intensity session.
For this 6 minute total body workout you’re going to melt fat and build lean muscle.
You’re going to get a few seconds of rest, to keep up the intensity.
The 6 Minute total body workout overview
For this short session, you’re going to do 4 different workouts.
Each targeting every area of your body to maximize calorie burn. You will need a pair of dumbbells ranging from 8 – 15 pounds.

As long as you actually do it, that’s what matters.
