This week I’m giving you some cardio to do over the weekend. You guys thought I forgot about the cardio workouts, didn’t you? Well, fret not my friends. This week we got incline training!!! I talked a few weeks ago about the benefits of doing incline sprints. So, it only makes sense that we now go out and practice what we preach. So, here you go…
This workout can be done on a treadmill or the hill down the street. It is a little easier to get the specific numbers and time on a treadmill, but if you can’t get to the gym, that grass hill will work just fine.
- Incline: 10-15%
- Time Interval: Sprint 15 seconds (If on hill, find one that takes 10-15 seconds to get up)
- Rest: At Least 45 seconds to 1 minute
- Speed: Treadmill – 5-10 mph (Should be winded after each, legs burning) Grass Hill – SPRINT
- Sets: 15-20
I know that 15 or 20 sets sounds like quite a bit, but remember, you’re only running for 15 seconds at a time. This workout will take about half an hour. If you work hard and push yourself on each set, that’s all you’ll need.
