Treadmill Blaster

Switch up your treadmill gears and put your calorie burner on Turbo Drive! fitness treadmill

Tired of the same old hum-drum treadmill routine that leaves you feeling like a hamster on a wheel? Try this the next time you are on the treadmill:

We are going for distance, not time! Start by warming-up by going 55-60% of your max running capacity (for me is it is about 7mph) for 1/4 (0.25) of a mile. Then ramp it up to 75% (for example, 9mph) for the next quarter mile.

Continue for the next 1/2 mile (totaling 1 mile) doing the quarter mile intervals between your 60% and 75% speeds. This is a great way to confuse your muscles, increase fat burning and bust up that old routine! SPECIAL TIP:  As you get better, build your endurance by increasing the distance (instead of 0.25, go for 0.30 miles) you run at the higher speeds while using the slower periods as a rest!

  1. There are many exercises you can do other than the traditional running. Try walking at an pace and steep incline you can handle. This will mimic hills. Try walking backwards at an incline and pace you can safely handle. Feel the burn! LOL
