The late night advertisements for fitness products that will change the life of the fat and lazy by making them slim and energetic with a minimal amount of effort, is something we’ve all seen.

Now, we here tell that there really might be a hope for such a product.

There is a new study that claims that two-and-a-half minutes of vigorous exercise is comparable to running for 90 minutes.

Researchers from Britain’s Aberdeen University recently collected data on a group of men between the ages of 18 and 35 who were asked to either run sprints, pedal a bike or a simply take a 30-minute walk.

Their research found that those people who performed high intensity sprints for 30 seconds, rested for four minutes and then executed the activity again experienced a more rapid decrease in fat levels than those guys that took a brisk 30-minute walk.

They discovered that a 30-minute brisk walk decreased fat content by 11 percent, while brief, intense exercise for two-and-a-half minutes revealed a surprising 33 percent reduction in fat — equal to an hour-and-a-half of running.

Researchers say that these results are likely due to brief surges of vigorous exercise causing the liver to absorb more fat from a person’s blood prior to being burned off by the body.

Two and a half minute workouts could just change your life!
