Are my short exercise sessions doing me any good?

Breaking up Your Workouts

Between family, friends, and work, many women are pressed for time. While conventional wisdom holds that women need to work out for at least 30 consecutive minutes before they start gaining any benefit from exercise, recent research suggests that may not necessarily be the case. In fact, one study showed that working out for 10 minutes three times a day is better for lowering triglycerides (blood fat) than exercising for 30 minutes straight. Even if you can only exercise for a few minutes multiple times during the day, your body is still reaping many of the benefits that you would be getting if you were exercising in longer stretches.
