Walk Off 10 Pounds This Month
Get Lean and Melt Calories: Intervals Walk
You'll torch more fat in less time by bumping up your pace a little for manageable bursts -- accelerating from a 17-minute mile to a 13-minute mile means 66 percent more calorie burn.
- Warm up at your regular pace (RPE: 6) for 6 minutes.
- Alternate these intervals: Walk as fast as you can for 1 minute (RPE: 8), then slow down to your regular pace (RPE: 6) for 2 minutes to recover.
- Repeat intervals until you've reached your time goal.
Calories burned (45 minutes): 241 (17-minute mile) to 326 (13-minute mile)
