Beat the heat and scorch fat inside with this quick 40 minute interval workout on the treadmill!
Interval training allows you to train at a higher intensity by implementing rest cycles for recovery. Training at a higher intensity means a better return on your investment in the gym; just make sure to start slow. By adding an incline to the treadmill during your workout you’ll burn additional calories, lessen the impact on your joints, and really work your hamstrings and glutes (back of your legs and butt). Shuffling or running backward on the treadmill with a large incline places the stress on the quadriceps (front of the legs) and acts as a rest cycle by giving the body a new stimulus.
Be careful the first time moving backward on a treadmill—stand to the side of the treadmill and grab the handrails. Put your weight on your toes and drive with the front of your legs.
