Get It Up, Your Heart Rate, That Is: StepMill Intervals At my gym, the StepMill is usually vacant. You know — the cardio machine that resembles a mini-escalator. It is large and intimidating; plus, it's hard to cheat when working out on a StepMill. Still, using this machine is a great way to get your legs ready for the short shorts of Summer.
Get It Up, Your Heart Rate, That Is: Short Elliptical Intervals I have said it before and no doubt I will say it again: If pressed for time, don't skip the gym altogether — just shorten your workout. When you're pressed for time, use this quick elliptical workout I created. It's only 22 minutes long including warmup and cooldown and features really short and effective intervals. Using quick intervals makes the workout intense and is great for burning calories.
