I’m not afraid to say it… I love the treadmill. I know, I know, my fellow runners out there probably gasp in horror at the thought of spending even 30 minutes “running but going no where” but I love it. I love staying dry, I love watching TV and I really love being warm.
That said, I am willing to admit it can get a wee bit boring if every time you hop on the old treadmill you hit your regular 3-5 miles. Well that’s why I love this workout…you’ll be changing speeds, inclines even directions every minute so there is no chance you’ll get bored. After all, keeping your mind and body guessing is the best way to keep seeing results!
Print the workout here 40 minute treadmill workout
Here is how it works…
- You’ll warm up and alternate fast and medium running speed every minute while increasing your incline Great treadmill bonus…you can add hills whenever you like:)
- Then you’ll recover and move onto a section where you jog backwards and shuffle sideways on the treadmill. Tip: Make sure you hold onto the arm rails until you get the hang of this exercise. (I love since it’s great for toning the back of the legs and outer thighs)
- Rest and catch your breath then it’s onto alternating sprints and recovery jogs.
The 40 minutes will fly by and if you’re not already a treadmill convert hopefully this workout will help you on your way! Happy Running!
