Aim for doing 24 rounds of 25 second exercises. There is 5 seconds of rest between intervals. But, this is really just enough time to get into the next exercise. If you are a beginner, you can add more than 5 seconds of rest. Try to minimize the amount of rest between sets to keep your heart rate up. Use this cardio workout as a warm up, or your entire workout.
