Zach Bush is a triple-board certified physician specializing in Internal Medicine, Endocrinology and Metabolism, and Hospice/Palliative care. Over the last year I have tried his 4-Minute Workout periodically. The concept of the 4-Minute Workout is based around short, frequent sessions of exercise, ideally being performed a few times throughout the day, to cause the muscles to release nitric oxide. When nitric oxide is released into the bloodstream blood vessels dilate, which allows for more nutrients and oxygen to reach the muscles.
The workout centers around four exercises; squats, tin soldiers, snow angels, and military press. Th goal is to perform each movement for 10 repetitions. You move from one exercise to the next before repeating for a total of three rounds. As you familiarize yourself with this workout and become more fit, you can progress in two ways. One would be to slowly increase your repetitions until you get to 20 or hold light dumbbells as you continue to do 10 repetitions for each exercise. Below is a video of the 4-Minute Workout, but a quick recap first:
3 Rounds of 10-20 Repetitions; Perform 3 times during the day.
