What exercises should you do?

The two best things are interval training (HIIT) and weight training. An example (HIIT) training session would be one performed on a treadmill: jog at 40% effort for 3 minutes (warm-up) then run hard at 90% effort for 2 minutes then jog at 60% effort for 1 minute, follow this again with 1 minute at 60% effort.
