Workout of the Week: Treadmill + Upper Strength
HEY friends! This week I'm starting something new: sharing a WORKOUT OF THE WEEK... one in which I did myself in the week prior! I am asked all the time what I do... and the honest answer is always different... & almost always off-the-cuff... but I do my best to balance high & low intensity cardio, strength via weights & bodyweight, flexibility, plyometrics & power, etc. I hope you benefit from my sharing & it helps you to switch up your workouts, give your body new challenges and keep boredom at bay.
This week's Workout of the Week is a combination of cardio (via treadmill) and strength (focus on the biceps, triceps and shoulders). It's a workout I did this past week.
A couple pointers...
Not a runner? Instead of RUNNING for 2 minutes at the 3% incline, WALK (briskly) at a 10-12% incline... then lower your incline to 6-8% during the 1 minute walk. Incline walking is AMAZING & I do it often. Just remember to pump your arms, keep your abs engaged, and try not to hold onto the treadmill.
No free weights at home? No problem. Either use some large water bottles & up the reps (to 20-30 instead of 15) or purchase some that you can keep at home... it'll pay off if you're committed to doing some at-home workouts.
If you have any questions, please share them in a comment below! And please tell me... WHAT DID YOU THINK? :)
High five to you!! Maggie
