How many times should I work out each day? How long? I like shorter workouts 15 minutes or less. Do you recommend any exercises in particular for those short workouts?

That depends on a lot of things. So the best thing you can do is to just listen to your body. If you feel to sore to do a workout then don't or do one that targets a body region you don't feel sore at. Sometimes too much working out can do more harm than good.

Thanks. I realized that but it's great to hear it from someone else. I want to burn calories. You think cardio or HIIT? How long should a good cardio workout last?

The longer the better. Burning calories doesn't mean you have to feel sore afterwards. It should get your heart rate up and make you sweat. So do workouts that include many different muscle regions so you can do them longer
