The secret to supersizing the slimming power of this plan? Don't skimp on your usual cardio; whether you walk, kickbox, or do Spinning, stick to it three times a week.

Or use your tunes to pump up the pace: The move-tivating playlist here alternates songs with steady rhythms and ones with fast beats that nudge your speed.
