Tread Quickly

Written by Jennifer Koenig on August 5, 2016

Whether you love or hate the treadmill, this week’s exercise will have your heart rate up in no time. It focuses on high-intensity interval training (HIIT) which helps burn fat quickly. If you can’t stand the sight of a treadmill, this same format can be used for any major muscle group. Think biking, jogging outside, or even burpees.

 

  • Interval 1
    • Walk for 10 minutes
    • This is your warm-up
  • Interval 2
    • Run fast for 4 minutes
    • Walk for 3 minutes
  • Interval 3
    • Run fast for 4 minutes
    • Walk for 3 minutes
  • Interval 4
    • Run fast for 4 minutes
    • Walk for 3 minutes
  • Interval 5
    • Run fast for 4 minutes
    • Walk for 3 minutes as a cooldown

Once complete, you’ll have 38 minutes of activity under your belt. Not a bad deal at all!

 

Note:Before beginning any new exercise program, consider discussing your exercise plans with your doctor, particularly if you have unique health issues such as diabetes.
