HIIT helps burn fat while maintaining muscle through a stop-start system of training that’s transferable to almost any exercise. HIIT, as the name suggests, combines high-intensity, calorie-torching periods of activity with low-intensity recovery periods for an overall duration of as little as 10 minutes each session.

Try this HIIT treadmill workout to finish of your weight training session, and have that six-pack showing in no time at all.

THE WORKOUT

This workout will take 10 minutes. Start with a light jog for three minutes and then complete 10 minutes worth of one of the levels below. Walk for three minutes upon completion to cool down.

Beginner: 20 seconds of work 40 seconds recovery x 10 *

Intermediate: 30 seconds of work 30 seconds of recovery x 10 *

Advanced: 40 seconds of work 20 seconds of recovery x 10 *

* Does not include three-minute warm-up or cool down.

Once you can complete the advanced level and need more of a challenge, try adding a slight incline for variation, or try the exact same workout on a stationary bike.
