This is workout #18 of my HIIT the New Year Hard Workout Challenge!
My workouts was a bit different than the one below. I did a 30 minute interval workout on the treadmill. As you can see in the photo below I worked up a sweat that was intense enough to make my mascara run! I posted a workout below that combines body weight exercise and treadmill intervals. At the bottom of the page I also posted a Jump Rope video for an alternate cardio burst.
|Interval Running Workout|
This workout is a combination of treadmill intervals and body weight exercises. If sweat is liquid awesome, then I was pretty darn awesome during this workout!
If you don’t have a treadmill you can substitute: 10 Minute Bombshell Fat Burn It is a 10 minute cardio based interval workout. So you would be doing intervals exactly the same length that I did without worrying about the treadmill. You can also substitute jump roping, or steady state cardio if you prefer. The breakdown for the treadmill workout is below.
I listed the paces and speeds I did on the treadmill workout. You can adjust them based on your comfortable pace, and your sprinting pace. The idea is to alternate 1 minute of a comfortable but effortful pace, with 1 minute at a quicker pace. By minute 5-6 you should be at a pace that feels closer to a sprint but can be maintained for a minute. Then you start working your way back up. Make sure you warm up before doing this workout.
Beginner: 5-10 Minutes of cardio, 10 reps
Intermediate: 10 Minutes of cardio, 15 reps
Advanced: 10 Minutes of cardio, 20 reps
