Frequently Asked Questions about the 4-Minute Workout Programs from

1. What makes the 4-Minute Workout System different?

The 4-Minute Workout System does NOT rely on aerobics, expensive equipment or inefficient tedious exercises. It's a revolutionary training program that focuses on full body movements done in specific timed intervals. It's a convenient, effective and efficient workout system that can be done in as few as 4 minutes a day!

2. Come on now! This must just be another marketing trick like 2-minute abs and such. Will these routines actually get me in shape in as little as 4-minutes/day? 

I know you've heard absurd promises before from companies marketing their "2-minute abs" and similar sounding programs, but I can tell you that this program gives you legitimate and intense workouts and you WILL get in great shape if you follow them regularly.

Now we're not claiming that this is the best training program ever invented, but what we are claiming is that this is specifically designed to get the best results possible in as little time as possible for busy people like you that would otherwise not have time to squeeze workouts into their daily schedule.

You can choose to do 1, 2, or 3 workout rounds per day for a total of 4 minutes, 8 minutes, or 12 minutes of total workout time each day... it simply depends on your schedule and how many rounds you want to fit in.

3. How does this training system work?

It's really simple. By combining bodyweight and resistance training mixed with high intensity conditioning intervals and shorter rest periods, you'll burn fat while increasing your lean muscle. In other words, you work harder with less rest, and get better results.

4. Can I actually get a good workout done in under 5 minutes?

Absolutely! In fact, many people cannot even make it through the full 4 minutes the first couple of workouts. However as your fitness level improves, you can even start to work up to three 4 minute rounds for a total workout time of only 12 minutes. I recommend getting into the habit of performing these brief workouts 5 days/week. The easiest way is usually just to include them into your daily schedule on the weekdays Monday - Friday.

5. Is this for people with advanced fitness levels only?

No. In fact, all of our workouts can be easily adapted for ANY fitness level just by altering your workout timing (rest and work periods). It takes about 30 seconds to learn the system (we teach it to you on the DVD introduction)

6. Do I need to do aerobics too?

No. Our workouts use high intensity 'anaerobic' conditioning which means your heart will work harder for short periods of time. It's similar to how sprinters train (you never see them doing long distance running and they're the most fit athletes in the world with unbelievably low bodyfat percentages).

7. Do I need expensive equipment or access to a gym?

No. In fact, I recommend you stick with bodyweight and basic dumbbells for the workouts. They require more total body strength and you get a more effective, efficient workout in a fraction of the time. But if you want variety, we do have workouts using other equipment such as medicine balls and stability balls.

8. Are these workouts only for men, or can women use them too?

Of course women can use them too. The only reason we designed this website to sound geared towards men is because of the exposure we received in Men's Fitness magazine.  There are 20 different workouts to choose from on the 2 DVDs, so even if there are a couple exercises that may be above your strength level for some women (and some men too), there are plenty of alternate options given.

9. I have trouble sticking with workout programs. How is this different?

Most programs fail are because they are too time consuming, inconvenient, boring and too complex to remember. With this 4-Minute Fitness Program, you have an excellent chance for success because your workouts can be done in as few as 4 minutes a day, you can workout anywhere with zero equipment and it's simple to remember.

There's absolutely no excuse that you can't fit between 5-10 minutes a day (the total time including your warmup, the actual workout, and cool down) into your schedule. The best way to stay consistent on this program is just wake up 10 minutes earlier than you do now, and do the workout 1st thing in the morning.

Other people choose to squeeze their quick workout in immediately when they get home from work, or on their lunch break. They are all legitimate ways to do it. The most important thing is that you stay consistent and make it a PRIORITY in your daily schedule. I recommend trying make the workouts a regular part of your routine during all weekdays Mon-Fri. Five days/week is plenty on this routine and you can feel free to take the weekends off.

Seriously, if you can't dedicate 5-10 minutes a day to your schedule to improve your body and your health for life, then you need to re-evaluate your priorities!
