Today is Day 7 of my HIIT the New Year Hard Workout Challenge.
Today’s workout is a quick, but intense 15 Minute Cardio Fat Burn HIIT workout. My thighs were burning like crazy, I was breathing hard, and according to my heart rate monitor I burned 182 calories in 15 minutes. That type of calorie burn is similar to running 2 miles at a 7:30 min/mile pace.
This is a great fat burning cardio V02 Max Workout. It helps push your body to get used to working at a higher level of intensity, which improves your strength, fitness and endurance.
I paired today’s workout with Hard Pace Speed Bursts on the Treadmill. I did my speed bursts at 8.8 speed (6:49 min/mile pace):
Total: 1 Mile
.5 Mile Brisk Walking Cool Down.
I also posted a video for a 6 Minute Jump Rope workout as a bonus cardio alternative. I only went through the workout 1X today. I am finally starting to recover from my cold, but I am feeling very tired so I kept the number of rounds, and the mileage lower today.

Enjoy the workout!
