Cardio HIIT Training
The advantages of Cardio HIIT training are numerous. Studies have shown that with High Intensity Interval Training you can:

It is a good idea to warm up before a HIIT cardio workout. Because you are going to be working your abs, calves, core, glutes, hamstrings, and quads, start moving those areas before hand. Use jumping jacks or jump rope to work your core and legs. You can also stretch before hand, but studies have shown conflicting results as to whether that’s beneficial or not.You can also mimic the workout routine that you are about to use, but go at 50% speed.
The original form of HIIT training involved 20 seconds of intense activity, followed by 10 seconds of rest. You can learn more about the history of HIIT training at Wikipedia. There are also many studies on the validity of HIIT Training.
One thing is for certain: If you push yourself with HIIT training, you will burn more fat in less time.
