Video: 30-Minute High-Intensity Interval Workout

This intense interval-training cardio workout works the whole body while improving cardiovascular capacity and boosting metabolism. It does include a warm up, but not a cool-down, so you will want to be sure to cool down and stretch after the workout.

As usual, he gives great form instructions along with the demo, and there is a helpful inset to show what the next exercise is so you can get ready to switch. There is also a meter showing approximate calorie burn throughout the workout, which is nice.

There three rounds of a variety of exercises included, which work all the different major muscle groups of the body.

For the first round, you will do five sets of each exercise, with 15 seconds of rest in between each one. The first set is 50 seconds long, and each set drops by 10 seconds, with the last one at 10 seconds, so as you get tired, your sets are shorter, which helps!

The second round is a "pyramid round," so you start at 10 seconds for the first set, and work your way up to 40 seconds, then back down again. 

The third round gives you a total of 11 different exercises, each for two sets of 20 seconds, with 10 seconds of rest in between.

No equipment is required, as this workout uses your own bodyweight to give you a great workout and burn around 500 calories in just half an hour!

Note: This is a high-intensity workout! Be sure to consult your physician to make sure you are in good enough shape to do this workout before you begin.
