Quick exercises for the busy dental student

Clinics, exams, classes and responsibilities in your personal life can make exercise a low priority on your ‘to-do’ list. However, you do not have to spend hours engaging in gruelling exercises to reap the health benefits of physical activity. Scientific research has demonstrated that HIIT, or High Intensity Interval Training, improves your aerobic and anaerobic fitness in less than half the time spent on static state (or level speed) cardiovascular exercise.1

Dentist, author, Certified Personal Trainer and wellness expert, Dr. Uche Odiatu, shares his knowledge about exercise and nutrition at national and international dental conventions. In the video below, he demonstrates how the busy dental student and professional can do quick High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) exercises from their home or gym. All you need is 20-30 minutes, 2-4 times a week, depending on your health and fitness goals.2
