High Intensity Interval Training is highly and intensely efficient. It can be accomplished with minimal time, in minimal space, using minimal equipment. In Sean Foy's new book, The Burst! Workout: The Power of 10 Minute Interval Training, Foy encourages readers to break a sweat at work. He's not talking about hitting the gym on your lunch break - he's suggesting HIIT workouts while sitting in your cubicle. He's talking about air-boxing while you're on a conference call, or searching documents, or browsing Facebook. In Canada, more and more of us are seeing longer and longer office days. Many new employees are getting to work at 8 a.m. and not leaving until after 6. Many of my "9-5" friends can even be seen at the office on Saturdays. With so much of our time spent at work, we need to find time to escape the confines of the cubicle. Although working out is a great stress relief, it is also often a solo activity. When facing high levels of work-related stress, it's easy to feel isolated and unhappy. But keeping up a healthy social life can counter the stresses of overdrive work life. In a medical paper titled "Social Support as a Moderator of Life Stress," Dr. Sidney Cobb writes, "information that one is valued and esteemed is most effectively proclaimed in public. It leads the individual to esteem himself and reaffirms his sense of personal worth." If your routine is just work-eat-gym-sleep-repeat, you're not getting the social stimulation you need to lead a healthy lifestyle. For this reason, at-the-office-HIIT, may be a good idea. It's a way to keep up your fitness during the business week without sacrificing your social life. You can get Foy's tips for white-collar workouts on Amazon.com.
