One way to maximize results is to incorporate intervals into your workout routine.

Let's say you plan to do 30 minutes of cardio.

Instead of staying at the same steady pace for 30 minutes, try alternating between your steady pace and short/fast bursts of intensive exercise.

For example, if you are walking on the treadmill, start off by walking at your normal pace for 3 minutes and then try to go as fast as you can (either fast walking or jogging) for 1 minute. Try alternating back and forth at this rate for 30 minutes. As you get in better shape, you can change up the intervals and build from there.


Because you are going to burn more calories and fat doing intervals than you would doing the same exercise, for the same amount of time at a steady pace.

Cool huh?

So, whatever cardio routine you have in place (whether walking, running, biking, swimming), maximize your results by incorporating intervals.
