Building strength – just 9 minutes at a time

CBS This Morning—December 19, 2017

CBS This Morning reported on a recent study that found that those who do strength-based exercise have a 23 percent lower risk of premature death. Jordan D. Metzl, MD, primary care sports medicine physician at HSS, joined live on-air to discuss his new training program, the 9 minute muscle workout.

He explained how the workout uses body weight (and some light weights) to do workouts at home in a series of one-minute interval blasts with high repetition.

Dr. Metzl recommended doing this workout 2-3 times a week and notes that strength training builds the muscle to allow you to do other things you want to do such as golfing or playing tennis.

"The idea of strength training is not building muscle bulk, it’s building kinetic chain strength (tip to toe strength)," said Dr. Metzl.
