My FAVORITE Cardio Interval Workout

Here it is, my new favorite cardio interval workout. It was one of the most challenging activities that I have done in a long time! Check out the video and workout below.

Benefits:

  • Interval workouts force your body to tap into fat stores more than steady state cardio helping aid weight loss.
  • It will help you improve your 5K, 10K or half marathon time.
  • Intervals beat boredom! If you get cardio ADD, try interval workouts.

The Workout

  • Warm up for 5 minutes
  • 10-sec SPRINT
  • 20-sec STEADY
  • 30-sec SLOW JOG
  • Repeat the 10:20:30 interval 5 times total then WALK for 2 minutes
  • Repeat this 7 minute circuit 3-5 times total for a 26-40 minute workout

How To Do It:

  • I create the interval using RunKeeper on my iPhone, but you can also count in your head, look at your stop watch or use a Gymboss. If you use the Gymboss, I would suggest setting your timer for two 30 second intervals and just try to remember to sprint for the first 10 and then cruise into a fast paced jog for the first 30-second interval.
  • To create the workout on RunKeeper, go to Coaching and at the bottom, select “Create New.” Next, select add new action, select fast and 10-seconds. Click “back.” Select “add new action” again and this time do Steady 20-seconds.  Once more, click “back” and then “add new action.” Finally adding the 30-second Slow interval. Do this 5 times, then add a 2 minute slow interval. At the bottom, select repeat 4 more times. Click to select a 5-minute warm up and you are ready to go.
