This has been one of my favorite treadmill workouts yet! I was dripping with sweat when I got done 🙂
Unlike most of my other cardio workouts, this one doesn’t consist of any walking (except for warm up and cool down). This is a 31 minute cardio session and kept my mind occupied the whole time. I love switching up speeds because, in my opinion, it makes the time go by faster.
This is my 5-8-6-8 cardio workout. You start on the treadmill at 3.7mph for 2 minutes. You’ll then change the speed to 5mph for one minute. After that minute, change it to 6mph. After that minute, bump it up to your high speed, which I had at 8mph. You’ll then drop down back to 5 after you’re done with the minute at 8mph. You’ll continue this cycle and do it 9 times.
Feel free to change up the speeds to your liking. I wanted 3 speeds (easy, medium and hard). For me, 5 is a light jog, 6 is a medium run and 8 is a a hard run that I can complete for 1 minute intervals.
