Martin Gibala, a professor of kinesiology at McMaster University, whose research on the physiological and health benefits of high-intensity interval training has attracted enormous scientific and media attention, says that elite athletes might require more exercise, but “For the rest of us—the people who just want to get in shape and stay there—the answer, based on current science, is a minute.

Most people that resolve to wake-up early to exercise do it with the vague goal of losing some weight and getting into shape. Those are terrible goals for several reasons. First, they aren’t clearly defined. Second, they don’t contain any emotional intensity, and last, they don’t have any deadline to create a sense of urgency. I want you to wake-up early and exercise because it will prime your mind for peak performance.
