Try This 30 Minute Workout

Try This 30 Minute Workout On those days when you're pressed for time, but still want to get in a challenging workout, a study published in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research suggests that sprint interval training can help you accomplish a lot in about half the time you'd normally spend pedaling at a steady pace.

After a 5-minute warm up, 6 men and 6 women completed between 4 and 7 sets of sprint intervals on a stationary bike. Each set consisted of 30-seconds all-out effort followed by 4 minutes of active recovery which involved pedaling at a slow pace.

True Strength Moment: Because researchers estimated the cardiorespiratory response to be above 80% of maximum capacity, this training protocol can stand in as a demanding aerobic workout. The whole session takes less than 30 minutes to complete, making it a great choice for a quick and effective cardio day.
