Same is true for me. Really intense is a non starter for me.

If you re-read the article, it says that your exercise has to be really intense. I cannot do really intense.

Me too. 10 minutes a day doesn't seem right. I shoot for 30 to 45 minutes at least 3 times a week.

I think I'll stick with my current plan of exercising every day -- some days, it is just a walk (not high intensity at all). But, this is working for me. I am fortunate since I don't need to "slim down", but I certainly need to stay healthy.

How often have you wanted to slim down, but been discouraged before you even started? All that sweaty effort and those endless hours plodding away on the elliptical machine or treadmill are, unsurprisingly, the biggest turn-off when it comes to getting into shape. But it turns out that you're actually spending more time than you need to. Yep, researchers have discovered that workout sessions lasting just 10 minutes, performed three times a week, can (and will) transform your body for the better.

Based on findings about how exercise affects our bodies, scientists have reached a startling new conclusion: It's not how long you spend working out that matters, but how hard you push yourself. And if you're prepared to give an all-out effort in short bursts —an approach the experts call High Intensity Training (or HIT) — then the reward is a workout that need only last a matter of minutes, yet will produce a long list of benefits, among them weight loss and better muscle tone.
