Hill Running Workouts

There are many reasons to add hill work to your running routine, and a tighter, firmer butt and toned gams are just two of them. Running on hills also helps challenge your muscles to increase your endurance and build speed, making you a better runner (and a pro at tackling those flat roads). In other words, seek out those hills; don't avoid them. Here are six ways to do just that.

  4. Butt-toning: This solid 45-minute hilly treadmill workout will keep muscles guessing — and you sweating. This workout is perfect if you are looking for ways to lift and tone your backside.
