Get it Up - Your Heart Rate, That is: Treadmill Walking and Then Some

One way to keep your cardio workout interesting is by switching it up from time to time. Next time you're at the gym, try this cardio workout combined with a bit of strength training that will blast away calories and really work the muscles in your lower body.

00:00-05:00 Warm Up Incline 1%, Speed 2.5
05:00-10:00 Incline 6%, Speed 4.0
10:00-11:00 Get off the TreadMill and do alternating front lunges
11:00-16:00 Incline 8%, Speed 3.5
16:00-17:00 Get off the TreadMill and do alternating reverse lunges
17:00-22:00 Incline 10 %, Speed 3.0
22:00-23:00 Get off the TreadMill and do squats
23:00-28:00 Incline 12%, Speed 2.5
28:00-29:00 Get off the TreadMill and do plié squats
29:00-34:00 Incline 15%, Speed 2.0
34:00-40:00 Cool Down Incline 1%, Speed 2.0

Fit's Tip: Be careful getting on and off the TreadMill as it will still be moving. Also, this workout is not one that would work well in a crowded gym, especially if there are people waiting to use the machines. If this is too hard (or easy) adjust the incline and/or speed to fit your level. Check out this other great TreadMill walking workout.

I like the sounds of this. Here's hoping I don't get strange looks when I do this at the gym.

I could use something different to shake things up a bit. And this takes walking to another level which is nice!
