JOINING IN ON THE 7-MINUTE WORKOUT #1 FITNESS CHALLENGE? IT WILL BE HELPFUL TO GET THIS APP!!
In case you haven't used this app before... I'm going to explain exactly what settings to enter for this 7-minute workout so you don't have to waste any extra time setting this up! The whole point of this workout is about saving time, right? I've got your back ;)
FIRST: Go to the "App Store" on your iPhone and search "Interval Timer". It was free when I got it... hopefully it still is. Download the app and open it. Your screen should look like this... (I'm sure Android phones have something similar....)
NEXT, you need to adjust the settings for this workout. Click on the "stopwatch" in the upper right corner. It will bring up a current routine and you'll want to name it. Click name and enter "7-min workout" (or whatever you want to call it). If you want to set time for a warm up and cool down you can do that... I leave them at zero and do that on my own. NEXT, click on "Interval Cycle" and click "number of sets" and set it to 12. Under "First Interval" select "High". Under the High Intensity section set "Duration" to 00:30 (30 sec). Under the Low Intensity section set "Duration" to 00:10 (10 sec). You can change the alarm sounds if you like... I leave them at the default settings. Your screen should look like this...
Click the back button and make sure your settings look like this...
You're ALL SET!! On the main screen when you are ready to start your screen will look like this... you just hit "START"! You will hear a sound that indicates when you change from your High Intensity exercise (30 secs) to Low Intensity/rest (10 secs). (I know, I know...the whole workout is actually 7 minutes, 50 seconds from start to finish...but you can handle that extra 50 seconds no problem!!) ;)
You can add more routines to your list as needed and save them like this... you can customize any time intervals you like!
Ok, now want to hear the COOLEST part?? This app lets you listen to your music while working out!! Just click the music note symbol in the lower right of the start screen!
AWESOME!! You are all set.... I'm so looking forward to YOU keeping ME accountable with this 30 Day challenge. Check out the full post "7 Minute Workout#1" to learn more about the challenge.
