These exercises should be performed 3 times a week coupled with proper nutrition.

Interval Training Workout:

Treadmill interval workout:

• Start walking for 3-5 minutes as a warm up at a speed of 3.5 mph.

Then go into your first work interval, which will be for 1 minute. (Stacia runs at a speed of 8 mph. • It is important that you pick a speed that is challenging but not impossible.)

• Once you finish your first work interval, you'll go into your first recovery interval by walking for 2 minutes at a speed of 3.5 mph.

Repeat this 6-8 times and finish with a 3-5 min. cool down.

The entire interval workout should take approximately 25-30 minutes, including the warm up and cool down

Another way to complete an interval training workout is by changing up the apparatuses being used. You don't have to only use the treadmill. You can mix other machines into your workout.

Try performing 1 minute of work on the treadmill, immediately followed by 1 minute on the bike, 1 minute on the versi-climber, and 1 minute on the rower. Then rest for 2 minutes and repeat the cycle 4-5 times.

A) Squat Push Press with Dumbbells (10-12 reps) If you do not have dumbbells you can use a medicine ball and if you do not have access to a medicine ball you can substitute a detergent bottle.
