The price of good health? A dozen minutes a day

Interesting to see that legendary actor Dame Helen Mirren credits a now-obsolete Canadian military fitness plan for her good health and looks, now she is well into her sixties. Developed in the 1950s, there is a men's version involving five simple exercises, and a women's version involving ten exercises. Best of all, both regimes only take 12 minutes a day! Even the busiest of people would be able to spare 12 minutes a day - after all, if it's good enough for the 'Queen'...?


Only 12 minutes a day sounds awesome!


Any exercise is good for you, even 12 minutes


sounds good where do i sign up


Even that will be too much for some people, sadly.


The short amount of time would hopefully appeal to lots of inactive people. Once they are more active then they will naturally do more exercising.


Not sure if you'd get the heart rate up enough in 12 minutes for good heart health but it's definitely better than nothing


If I could look like Helen Mirren it is worth trying.


haha 12 minutes? itll probably take more than that, but id be keen if i can get ripped abbs and some guns ;).


Quite interested to know what these 5 movements are? Are they bodyweight exercises such as pushups and pullups or some aerobic fitness exercise? Also wonder why women have to do 10 exercises and what differences are there with the mens' version.
