I know, I know treadmill sprints….AGAIN! Yes, but I’ve modified & added alternating increases of incline & speed. To keep you on your toes of course. Don’t want anyone getting bored…
Shanna is moving on to week 2… & hopefully you are too 🙂

You’ve just completed a full 30 minutes of cardio!
Just starting out: Try Treadmill Week 1
Shoot for doing some form of cardio EVERYDAY! Try implementing a treadmill sprint workout 1-3 times per week. If your lucky enough to live somewhere were it’s cold & snowy take advantage of this workout you can do inside. No nice weather needed 😉 Even if you hate doing them, you know you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment when completed or at least you’ve burned 200-300+ calories, YEAH! Need help staying accountable? Get yourself a Fitbook, write down your workouts & keep track of what you are eating.
Get off your butt & MOVE!
P.S. I’d love to hear feedback for those of you who do any of my treadmill sprint workouts.
