Turns out a 30 minute workout is all it takes to get you in better shape, at least that's what a new Danish study is claiming. The study involved observing 60 "moderately overweight" men who either biked, rowed or jogged for either 30 or 60 minutes.
About 3 months later, the results showed that the men who exercised for 30 minutes lost an average eight pounds, while the 60-minute men lost only six pounds on average.
