This Week’s challenge: Incline Treadmill

June 15th, 2009 No Comments

Walking on the treadmill.  Incline at least 12.  Speed at least 3.5.  15 minutes 2 times this week.

I’m really bored with my cardio options: running or bleachers in the scorching heat, elliptical or treadmill indoors.  Oh, and how could I forget the Stair Master.  YUCK.

But there is one other option.

Maybe you’ve tried this and realize it’s a bitch or perhaps you’ve seen it as a cop out cardio workout.

Well, let me tell you, walking up a steep incline on a treadmill is nothing to scoff at.  I’m talking incline 12-15.  Speed around 3.8-4.5. 

Sounds easy you say????? Ok, take your Elle or Sports Illustrated up there with you.  But don’t forget your hard core cheesy hip hop or classic rock.  You’re gonna it to pick up your step.

Within minutes you’ll be out of breath.  I am!  After all of my cardio work, the climb always kicks my ass.  

Speaking of asses, it will really tighten your ass up.  Seriously!

So this week’s challenge is to replace 2 of your cardio workouts with 15 minutes of incline walking on the treadmill.  Incline at least 12, speed at least 3.5.
