Men's Health;Nov2011, Vol. 26 Issue 9, p116
The article offers information on resistance training which can help in elevating one's resting energy expenditure and building muscles. According to a study in the "European Journal of Applied Physiology," 15 minutes of resistance training can elevate one's resting energy expenditure for 72 hours after exercise and in building muscle faster than any other exercise. The article also presents information on 15-minute ski and snowboard workout and the 15-minute total-body dumbbell routine.
