Fitness: Heart-pumping HIIT Routine

If you read my last Treadmill HIIT workout, I explained what HIIT is. HIIT is high intensity interval training. HIIT workouts incorporate short bursts of energy with slower, to ensure maximum calorie burnage and, therefor, maximum results in little time. This routine can take you anywhere from 20-40 minutes. run

  • Warm up by stretching your arms, legs, and core
  • Get your heart rate up and sprint for two minutes at approximately speed 8
  • Cool down for three minutes walking at approximately speed 4 (or if you have more energy, slow jog this part)
  • Repeat this 4-8 times for a heart racing workout

NOTICE: Please adjust the speeds to suit your physical needs. The speeds provided are just recommendations. Also, if you run outdoors, just follow the bolded words and time, not the speeds.

Fitness: Treadmill HIIT workout

One of my all time favorite workout to do are HIIT workouts. HIIT means high intensity interval training. HIIT workouts get your heart rate up and then bring it back down and you repeat these cycles for maximum calorie burn-age. HIIT’s are mainly done running/on the treadmill, rollerskating, biking, and walking. This workout can be repeated as many times as wanted.

run

Warmup
Start off with a five minute warm up at speed 3.5 and 3 incline
Intervals
Do one minute at 8 speed
One minute at 6
One minute at 4 with incline 2
One minute at 3.5 with incline 6 increasing by 2 incline each time you repeat this.
*Modify speeds/incline to fit your fitness level
If you want to do this running outside just adjust the speeds so speed 8 would be a sprint, speed 6 a jog, and 4 is walking.
