Micro workouts are small workouts that add up over time to produce big results.
Many will claim that a short 5-10 minute workout can’t be effective, and they are right. Many short workouts aren’t effective, but then again, neither are many full-length workout either.
The key to making your micro workouts effective is the same way you make any workout effective; by focusing on the proper application of muscle tension as I discuss in Smart Bodyweight Training.
Understanding if you’re trying to create a stimulus for improving performance, building muscle, or burning fat will make any workout more effective. It also saves you a lot of time, energy, and even money by cutting out the fluff and needless exercises that bloat your workouts without any additional benefit.
This is why it’s possible for micro workouts to be just as effective as longer workouts. They may even be more effective in the long run.
Listen in to this week’s episode of the R.D.P podcast to learn more about these three applications of muscle tension for supremely effective micro workouts.
