SOME DAYS I’M JUST TOO TIRED FOR THE GYM. IS THERE SOME­THING ELSE I CAN DO? – Dy­lan

Men's Health (Singapore) - - ASK MEN'S HEALTH -

Sure there is. Ride a bike for 20 min­utes – it’s a proven lethargy buster. In a re­cent Uni­ver­sity of Geor­gia study, low-en­ergy but other­wise healthy peo­ple who took time out for a 20-minute sta­tion­ary bike ride three days a week re­ported an im­pres­sive 20 per­cent boost in en­ergy over the course of six weeks.

If cy­cling isn’t your thing, you can repli­cate the study’s re­sults by choos­ing any ex­er­cise that in­creases your rest­ing heart rate by 50 beats a minute, says ex­er­cise phys­i­ol­o­gist Dean Som­er­set.
