Constantly changing pace sculpts stronger legs, helps you break through plateaus, and beats boredom, says Lee Scott, a walking coach in Oakville, Ontario, who developed this workout that helps you burn more calories.

The Plan
After a 3-minute warm-up, follow the pyramid routine below, which builds to a peak intensity. Repeat 4 times; cool down for 3 minutes.

2 min 7-8 4.0-4.5 Late to meet your boss
