Holiday Interval Training

Burn more fat this holiday season with some interval training! The benefit is you don't have to maintain a high level of exertion the whole duration of your workout and you may even get better results. Go ahead and keep your workout around 30 minutes. If you have a heart rate monitor great if not you can just time your recovery. After warming up for 5-10 minutes: Pick up the pace and go all out for approx 15 seconds. Recover at a lower intensity until your heart rate returns back to 120-130 or approx 1 min 15 seconds. Repeat 10-15 times or until your 30 minutes is up allotting 3-5 minutes for a cool down. As you progress I'll add variations to this workout.
