Remember that old saying:
“I used to walk to school… Up Hill… Both ways… In the snow.”
I don’t know who said that first, but my guess is they were in pretty good shape.
Mainly because incline workouts are amazing and incredibly effective when it comes to fat loss. Plus…
They don’t put a lot of stress on your joints.
That’s why I wanted to share a super simple “Hill Workout” with you today that will help blast the fat and get you into incredible shape!
This can also be done on a treadmill that’s at an incline that you feel comfortable with…
Here’s what you’ll do:
NOTE: If you are using a treadmill, put it at an incline that you are comfortable with but that will challenge you. Do 30-seconds on each exercise. If you are doing this workout on a hill, try to find a hill that is 30-50 yards in length. Use the walk back down as your rest period.
After a good warm up, you are going to do what I call a “Build Up” Workout…
It will be a 2-3-4-5 Build Up. You’ll rest 30-seconds between each run.
1) 2-rounds: 30 seconds of 60% of your full speed for 30-seconds.
2) 3-rounds: 30 seconds of 75% of your full speed for 30-seconds.
3) 4-rounds: 30 seconds of 90% of your full speed for 30-seconds.
4) 5-rounds: 30 seconds of 95%** of your full speed for 30-seconds
**The reason I say 95% instead of 100% is because you never want to go 100% on a treadmill. This is just too dangerous. If you are doing this outdoors on a hill, go 100%!
As you can see, you are building up in both the amount of rounds that you are doing as well as the intensity that you are going at.
If you do need more rest, feel free to take it. The key is that you are pushing yourself!
