Minute three: Sprint as hard and as fast as you can for a full minute. Those calories aren't gonna burn themselves!
Minute four: Recover. Slow to a walk or easy jog and give your body a full minute to recover from the sprints.
Minute five: Tire runs. You don't actually have to have tires in order to do this exercise. Just stand with your feet wider than hip-width apart, pump your arms and drive your knees up and to the side. Keep your feet wide and go as fast as you can for minute five. A similar move you could substitute is the football drill.
Minute six: Sprint again! If you're not sweating bullets at this point, you've at least gotta be wheezing like an old man.
Minute seven: Recover. These recovery minutes are your new best friend! Savor these 60 seconds of walking or jogging.
Minute eight: Pull your knees all the way up to your abdomen to ensure you're burning the maximum calories during this minute. For more info on high knees, click here.
