Burn Calories and Fat – Interval Workout

Short on time for working out?

Try this 12-minute interval workout!  You can burn a lot of fat & calories with interval training and in little as 12 minutes a day!

Give it a try.  Let me know how you like it!

Also, if you’re tight on time… use your “fat burner” muscles.  Chest, back and legs.  Push-ups, lunges & squats – do 10-15 of each every morning.  It’s a great way to wake up, boost your metabolism and feel great.

What is the 12-minute interval workout?

2-minute warm-up:  walk, lightly jog, bike, and march in place, jumping jacks – do something that will slowly increase your heart rate and blood flow

1 minute FAST:  sprint or bike really fast for 1 minute

1 minute SLOW:  this is your recovery minute, jog, walk or pedal slowly to recover your breathing for one full minute

Repeat for a total of 4 FAST intervals & 4 SLOW intervals (total of 8 minutes)

2 minute cool-down:  slowly bring your heart rate and breathing back down and walk or bike for at least 2 minutes (or you can extend this portion to 5 minutes).

And ALWAYS stretch afterwards!  Your muscles will be warm and will be easier to stretch them and drink water!
