Get it Up - Your Heart Rate, That is: StepMill Intervals

I can understand why people are intimidated by the StepMill at the gym, it's a large machine (visually), plus it's tough to cheat on it. Don't be intimidated and grow to love it for killer legs this bikini season. If my previous StepMill routine proved to be a bit too difficult for you, then try this interval pyramid routine instead. Start by choosing "manual" on the machine.

Fit's Tip: As always, if this seems too difficult or too easy, adjust the levels accordingly. Keep in mind that machines vary, so you may also need to adjust according to your machine. This routine will blast boredom away as you'll need to adjust the level every other minute.
