Cardiovascular, HIIT, Toning
We Start off with a cardio warm up, then move into an intense and and obliques workout, and then an equally intense HIIT cardio workout, with a nice cool down and stretch to wrap things up - all this, in just 45 minutes.
The abs and obliques portion is deceptively difficult, and you're going to find out very quickly that all of the exercises work much more than just your abs - upper body, butt and thighs all get a good working over, as well. During the HIIT workout, all your muscles and your lungs are going to be screaming, but your butt and thighs are going to get a particularly good workout.
A lot of people will wonder which is better for burning calories; cardio equipment at the gym, or bodyweight workouts like this one. Try each, and you wont wonder anymore. Bodyweight workouts like this one are far superior to working out on clunky, overrated, expensive gym equipment. Workouts like this one - especially because of the Tabata style intervals, are much more effective at burning fat than hours of steady state cardio on a one dimensional machine. This will feel harder, but it's also working a lot better, and it will bring about changes in your body and fitness levels faster, which makes it worth it.

You can do this workout three times a week; keeping in mind that HIIT should not be done anymore than that, as the body needs time to recover from such intense training.
Make sure that you drink plenty of water after this workout, as you've likely sweated a great deal; it's important to thoroughly rehydrate yourself. You'll also want to eat a meal as soon as you're finished with your workout - if for some reason you can't eat a well balanced meal right after your workout, a high carbohydrate snack will suffice until you are able to eat a meal.
