Amp up your treadmill walk with this even/odd walking hill workout. It will get your heart rate up and burn a good amount of calories in only 35 minutes!
I’m a firm believer in the fact that walking is one of the best workouts you can do! It’s a lower impact exercise and puts less stress on your body than running. In the spring, summer and fall months I like to walk outside, but I purchased a treadmill last year and I’m obsessed with it. I did a ton of research and ended up buying a ProForm 5000 because it had all the features I wanted and fit my budget. Having this machine in our basement has made it so much easier for me to get my steps in (I have a goal to get 10K steps every day) — even on days where the weather is too cold, hot or rainy. I still like to go to go to workout classes and do strength training, but if something comes up and I can’t make it to the gym I love making up quick treadmill workouts like the one I’m sharing today. It’s only 35 minutes long, but it will get your heart rate up! Trust me.
Incline (or hill) workouts are no joke! By increasing the incline level of your treadmill you’ll increase your heart rate and calorie burn. Incline walking also works your leg muscles in a different way and provides an awesome cardiovascular workout without having to increase your speed.
I love this specific walking hill workout because you’re taking the incline up pretty steep, then reducing it all the way back down for a little break before staring to climb again. It’s a fun workout that goes by relatively quickly because you never stay at one speed or incline for too long. If you try this walking workout definitely let me know how it goes in the comment section. Also let me know if you enjoy seeing treadmill workouts like this. I’m hoping to post them more often!
