And I have shared 3 of my FAVORITE treadmill routines that I am doing RIGHT NOW! I know, hard to believe I am even saying this, right? Before you get too EXCITED, I will let you know that these workouts are QUICK, INTENSE, and are a balance between endurance, strength, and power.
AND, as always, these workouts will stay under 30 minutes…because #30getisitdone
I got started with these back in January; while I was finding I was getting the cardiovascular piece from my metabolic workouts, I still felt there was something missing. This was all part of my physique “investigative” process. I was seeing results but I just felt there could be something MORE. I went in with no expectations, or the thought that it was a “waste of time” if I did not see any difference.
I went in viewing this as a learning process about myself, and a continued practice in figuring out “what works” and “what does not work.” Plus, it was a great change of pace for my workout routine too (I think I needed more of challenge – or something).
So, what did I come to find out? Well, the fact that I am sharing these with you must give a pretty good indication…:) As I mentioned before, these workouts are extremely intense but super effective at the same time. While these are written from a running/sprinting perspective, please feel free to modify these to more of a power walk or jog. My suggestion if you do – increase your incline on the treadmill to get that heart rate up and intensity factor through the roof!
Monitor how your body responds, as well as your hunger, energy, cravings, sleep, and additional biofeedback responses that may affect your performance and recovery. Remember, EVERYONE will respond differently…be flexible and open to changing and modifying as needed!
Are you ready to fall back in love with the treadmill again? Okay, maybe a bit of a stretch, but your body will thank you – I promise! Warm-up and cool-down accordingly! Enjoy! 🙂
