Keeping fit may only take minutes

Keeping fit and healthy may not require hours of physical exercise every week, research suggests.

Canada's McMaster University found just six minutes of intense exercise a week could be as effective as six hours of moderate activity.

The Journal of Applied Physiology study showed short bursts of very intense exercise improved muscle capacity, and improved endurance.

However, experts warn it might be too much for people not already fit.
