Treadmill Workout: 30-Minute Pyramid Intervals

Get Faster While Burning Belly Fat: Treadmill Intervals

Spice up your cardio and target belly fat with intervals! This 30-minute treadmill workout, day five of our Better-Body Challenge, plays with speed and changes minute to minute. Playing with speed like this not only improves your overall running stamina, but it also increases the calories you burn when the workout is over.

As always, feel free to adjust the speed up or down as necessary; just make sure you're challenging yourself. If you're looking to try running intervals but want to start a little slower, try this beginner's interval plan.

this is a great workout but some people have problems with the speed, if thats the case try this , do warm up as per then start on a incline of 1 and speed of 7,5 m/h but evey min put the incline up .5 but when u get to inclines of 7 drop speed to 7 and incline 8 speed to 6.4 . keep going till u reach incline of 9.5 to 10, then drop to 6 m/h and incline of 2 to recover for 5 mins . then work on the legs ( streaching) now work on flat interval trg to work harder. incline 0 , speed 6. every min add .5 till reach 8.5 or 9 then back to 5 m/h to recover and cool down as norm. i find this good for my hill workout and cardio vas, esp for my last third of races to finish strongh .
