Did you know that high-intensity 4-minute workouts are more effective than an hour of moderate cycling? A study shows eight 20-second all out sprints on a stationary bike, each separated by just 10 seconds of rest is more effective than an hour of moderate cycling.
Instead of doing a single mode of exercise and in particularly exercise using a piece of cardio equipment I recommend using bodyweight exercises or even better using some form of resistance if your fitness levels are up to it. You could even alternate between two exercises that work your muscles in different ways and target problematic areas.
For best results you could repeat the 4-minute workout a few times a day to help boost your metabolism.
