What is the 60 second exercise?

The 60 second exercise is any callisthenic based exercise that you perform intensely for 60 seconds to compensate for the lack of time from performing regular physical activity.  Examples, including push-ups, jumping jacks, sit ups all will help get the blood flowing and provide small benefits and improvements in fitness if performed periodically throughout the day.
