Torch Calories With Treadmill Intervals

May 5 2014 - 3:00am

Spice up your cardio and target belly fat with intervals! Day five of our Bikini Body Countdown workout plan [1] is only 30 minutes, but playing with your speed increases the calories you burn after you jump off the treadmill. This boredom-busting run changes by the minute, ramping up with speed bursts, but bringing you back to a slower pace to recover.

As always, feel free to adjust the speed up or down as necessary; just make sure you're challenging yourself. If you're looking to try running intervals but want to start a little slower, try this beginner's interval plan [2].
