Michele Stanten: Hi I am Michele Stanten fitness director of Prevention Magazine. This is our 8 Minute Super Charged Interval workout. Let's start by marching it in place, we are going to warm it up. The difference with this interval workout is that we are going to doing more revved up versions of interval. They are going to be shorter but they are going to be a much higher intense activity. Think about jumping jacks and jogging in place. What this is going to do, this is going to really rev up your calorie burn so you are going to burn lots of fat, slim down all over and look nice and slim. Keep marching, lifting the legs up a little bit higher as we warm it up, it's really important to warm up especially before you are doing vigorous exercise. You want to get the blood pumping to the muscles that you are going to working, get your heart rate increasing, breathing is going to pickup. By pressing your body to the activity you are preparing it to burn fat more efficiently. And the results of this workout are going to be fabulous. Okay in this routine our short intervals are just going to be 15 seconds that's it, so when we start those intervals I want you to push it as hard as you can and after 15 seconds we are going to bring it back down to a march just like this. Now please make sure you are work with your own intensity and if you haven't been exercising regularly or you have health condition, please check with your doctor before doing this workout.
