Cardio: 3 Weight Shredding Plans

    Four to five times per week, do any of the following 35-minute workouts. The levels below are based on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is kicking back on the couch and 10 is pushing so hard you’re gasping for breath. (No 10s here, no worries.) After each workout, cool down at a slow pace for 5 minutes.

    Walk/Run (indoor or outdoor)
    1. Walk at a moderate pace (level 4) for 5 minutes.
    2. Pick up speed until you’re walking at a fast pace (levels 5–6) for 3 minutes.
    3. Increase pace to a run (levels 7–8) for 2 minutes.
    4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 five more times.
