First things first: The entire workout takes just seven minutes, and it looks super simple. Initially, I was skeptical I could accomplish this much in such a narrow time frame.
It consists of 12 standard exercises like jumping jacks, sit-ups, and push-ups. Ten of them require nothing but your own body (you’ll need a chair that can support your weight for the others). The Times’ version of the app shows proper positioning for each, which you do for 30 seconds.
To do my workout, all I used was a yoga mat, the hardwood floor of my office, a wall, and a stool.
