Quick & Dirty Fat Blasting Cardio
When most of us think of fitting in a 15 minute workout, we probably don’t think of the treadmill but the truth is that it is without a doubt one of the most effective fat loss training strategies around and the best part is that it is much easier on your joints (knees and ankles) than running on pavement outside.
So even though you may have heard a lot of talk lately about different fat loss approaches, the the truth is, it all depends on your approach.
What often happens is people become complacent with cardio and they don’t challenge their bodies enough. Getting on a treadmill and doing the same workout every day isn’t going to give you the results you’re looking for.
You need to really hit it hard, just like any other workout. If you challenge your body in the right way, and change things up, the treadmill can be a great way to shed some extra weight, lean out, and stay fit.
The best way to do this is by introducing interval training to your treadmill workout. Interval training works by constantly changing things up and challenging your body throughout the workout. Generally speaking, interval training for cardio involves 1-2 minute intervals, alternating between high and low intensity.
This constant variability is not only good for burning calories and fat, but it’s also great for the health of your heart, lungs, and cardiovascular system overall. Trust me, nothing works up a sweat like interval training, and that’s what you need to be doing if you’re trying to get seriously fit!
So here’s a 15 minute interval treadmill workout – perfect for those days when you’re feeling rushed!
