This is an intense HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) workout that I’ve used many times. It’s a 30 minute workout and really gets that heart rate up!
For the first 2 minutes and the last 2 minutes, you’ll warm-up and cool down. Minutes 3-28 will consist of 30 second sprints.
In order to do this, you must set the treadmill at 8mph while you’re feet are stabilized on the sides of the treadmill. This will allow the treadmill to get to the speed you want.
You’ll be hopping on and off the treadmill for these sprints. The reason you can’t adjust the speed during the workout is because 30 seconds isn’t a long time to begin with and the treadmill takes a while to adjust it’s speed. This workout is more efficient if you leave the speed at 8mph and then grab the treadmill handlebars and hop on and off (one foot to each side).
It may seem intimidating at first, but it’s actually easy and a bit fun 😉
The treadmill incline is set to 0%. Feel free to change the maximum MPH of your sprint to your liking. I set my maximum to 8mph.
