For those of you who love to mix it up on cross-training days (which are very important, by the way, for giving your body a chance to recover from the pounding of high-impact activities), I wanted to share a great walking incline treadmill workout.
But beware – even though the pace is slow, this is a real bum-buster of a workout thanks to the steep angles at which you’ll be hiking!
Starting off, you may need to hold onto the treadmill handles at the higher inclines. As your body acclimates, however, try to do the whole thing hands-free. By swinging your arms, you’ll elevate your heart rate for an extra kick of cardio.
Give it a try, and tell me what you think!
