We all don't have hours to spend in the gym to lose weight. And the best part is, you don't even need to! Once I stopped half marathon training, I started to focus on weights instead. I also included 20 minutes of cardio. I wanted this cardio to count. I was spending around 10 hours a week before, running and training for my half. It was exhausting and results were slim to none. Once I made the change to lifting and HIIT cardio, the changes were amazing. My body fat was going down and I was able to fit into a size smaller jean.
I created this workout for those wanting a simple, but powerful workout. The nice thing is it's only 20 minutes. I am pretty sure we ALL have 20 minutes to work on ourselves. Hop on a treadmill and start burning calories. If you feel that these speeds are too fast for you, no worries! You can take it down a level. Just make sure your heart rate is high and that you are getting an interval workout. We want to keep your body guessing and when you interval the speeds, that burns fat! If you feel like you need a more increased workout, then up the speed. This workout is a baseline for someone who works out regularly but not insane, if you know what I mean.
