Model Treadmill Workout

I am always looking for good workouts online, but when I came across this treadmill program from Ford Models I prepped myself to really hate it. I was definitely wrong here, since this quick little video actually gives us a great treadmill workout -- One that you can add to your boredom busting repertoire at the gym.

Try it out and let me know what you think. I did it and aside from a minor blunder while going sideways (hey, even I can have two left feet sometimes), I really enjoyed it.

How funny, I did too! The side steps are easier than they look, but do require concentration. As far as having people look at you - who cares. I'd rather have them look at my firm tush than worry about what they think. I know that sounds harsh, but I go to a great gym where everyone is pretty serious about their fitness and no one would look at you too oddly. On the off chance someone does look at me too long, they usually come up afterwards and ask for tips. It just goes to show, sometimes the stares aren't judgemental, but rather curiosity.

I tried this this morning and really enjoyed the burn! The sideways stepping was a little weird at first, especially amongst others, but it felt good!

My only problem with this is that you look reeeeaalllly silly jumping sideways on a treadmill. I've never seen anybody doing this. Do you guys go to a different kind of gym than me or something? lol

Those side steps are really great! A minute may not seem like a long time for each side, but you can feel the burn in the thighs afterward.

I have a similar routing on 'the mill' that keeps my glutes in check. I got the idea from reading about Fergie's workout. She slows it way down and focuses on the slowly climbing up the incline (as high as it will go. I mixx this in with flat or downhill intervals, mixing it up and going for 30-45 minutes. By the end, if you've concentrated on your glute muscles, you will definitely feel it. The key is to squeeze the butt as you take each step. If you can't do it, slow it down and squeeze harder LOL! Finish by running or walking flat or decline. Your glutes will thank you! ;)

I do something almost just like this too. I tend to warm up for 5, do 1.5 min intervals for a half hour, cool down, then do some hills. Then side steps and even some backward walking where I really try to squeeze the glutes. I'm on there about an hour with warm up and cool down. Its a good way not to get too bored. The other day at the gym, I had some lady mimicking my sidestepping, she even told me "im copying off you."

I also found this on YouTube. I can't wait to try it out. I realized that I don't really work out that hard on the treadmill. :(
