Certified Turbulence Trainer Mike Whitfield has a great approach to eliminating cardio (including intervals) after your workout.
Here's one of his finishers from his "Xtreme Fat Loss Finishers" manual (but be warned, this is tough). In fact, make sure this is done AFTER your favorite workout:
The "Xtreme Tres" Finisher (found in the bonus)
Complete the following superset 8 times, resting for 10 seconds between supersets:
1A) Burpees (3)
1B) Prisoner Squat (3)
That's one of the finishers from his client's programs that helped him drop 34 lbs in just 12 weeks AND win $1,000 in the Turbulence Training Transformation Contest.
Of course, it's no wonder... even if your diet isn't perfect, you're bound to drop fat doing crazy, but effective finishers like that.

Now I want to share with you how to approach his density finishers (finishers in which you do as many rounds as possible in a certain amount of time... usually 3-5 minutes):
DON'T train to failure... if you leave about 3-5 reps in the tank during a metabolic finisher, you'll find that you can put in more reps and sets overall.
And that means more calories being burned...
... which means YOU smash a plateau
That's one of the secrets he has learned with his clients, and that's how they approach their finishers with their programs.
Mike hasn't "prescribed" cardio to any of his online or offline clients in years. He keeps creating these finishers for them to do.
And they love them...
... because they lose even stubborn fat (yes, men AND women).
So, try that finisher after your next workout and let me know how it goes.
