Can’t find time to exercise because you’re too busy with work, or life in general?  No problem . . . just stop using your weekends to relax.

A new study found you can skip working out Monday through Friday and still get in shape, if you go REALLY hard on the weekends.

It looked at “weekend warriors” . . . people who like to cram all their exercise into a few days . . . and found that’s fine too.  The goal just needs to be at least 150 minutes of exercise a week.

That means you could work out 30 minutes a day, five days a week.  Or 1 hour and 15 minutes, two days a week.

As long as you get those 150 minutes in, it might not matter.  Weekend warriors in the study got an average of just under 148 minutes of exercise on the weekend, and it still zapped belly fat and kept themselves in shape.

This last part kinda sucks though:  You may need to work out HARDER if you want to go the weekend warrior route.

Those people did get the same number of minutes in as the five-day-a-week crowd.  But their workouts tended to be higher intensity.  So, not just a brisk two-and-a-half-hour walk.
