To do this workout, begin by marching in place or walking briskly for a few minutes, then move from one exercise to the next without rest. The four cardio blasts mixed into the workout will keep your heart rate elevated and help you burn more calories. Do the entire series of exercises twice (it will take about 30 minutes).
