45-Minute Elliptical Interval Workout

Time For the Elliptical! Try This Fat-Blasting Workout

What did we do before interval workouts? Alternating between quick boosts of pushing our bodies to the max with longer periods of recovery can make it easier to commit to a long workout on the elliptical — and it doesn't hurt that it blasts away belly fat. This easy-to-follow interval plan keeps things interesting, fast-paced, and challenging from start to finish. The 45 minutes will truly fly by!
