Sure, you can log 45 minutes on the treadmill and check off your cardio for the day, but 10 to 15 minutes of work can be just as effective. A HIIT cardio workout maximizes both time and efficiency for the ultimate sweat session. Plus, pushing yourself harder means more afterburn.
While spin studios and gyms utilize equipment to give you the most bang for your buck, you can also use the best machine you have—your own body! There's one catch: you need to get as many muscles groups moving as possible. Not everyone likes squat thrusts and burpees, but the reason they're so hard is the reason they're effective; they work your entire body in one single move.
This workout brings all of those into the mix. I recommend picking at least 10 total body cardio moves; go for 45 seconds with 15-20 seconds rest. You should do at least 10 minutes, but if you're a beast and want a super intense workout; repeat this workout one or two more times!
