SHORT-AND-SWEET TRACK WORKOUT
Trainer and fitness personality Lita Lewis doesn’t have time for half-assed cardio. She changes things up often, but always keeps the intensity level high.
“To keep myself motivated, I switch up my cardio efforts every 2-3 weeks,” she says. “This helps me avoid boredom and the dreaded plateau.” A standard element in her approach is sprinting, which can be combined effectively with any number of dynamic movements. After all, you have to get back to the starting line somehow, right?
