Video: 15-Minute Cardio Interval Workout

Nothing burns fat and increases your cardiovascular capacity like interval training. High-intensity cardio moves with short breaks in between strengthen your heart and lungs, and rev your metabolism into high gear, helping you shed pounds even between workouts. This video demonstrates a high-intensity interval workout, similar to my favorite - the Pace Express workouts.

However, for the proper results, you will want to let your heart rate come back to resting rate, so you'll actually need about a minute to minute and a half in between sets - she's not resting long enough in the video to allow for the recovery time, which is very important. If you want to follow this video, just pause at every rest break and wait approximately 90 seconds before resuming the video. And for the real deal, to push your exercise routine into high gear, check out PACE Express below.

Be sure to warm up first, and consult with your healthcare provider before beginning any new exercise routine, particularly one this intense.
