This is a basic interval type workout, nowever in my opinion it is over long. Some recent research has indicated that workouts longer than 30 minutes have some degree of inhibition and degradation on the quality of the workout. If you were to increase the intensity and reduce the number of repeats you may find you obtain better results.

Not denigrating the workout just saying that a shorter more intense one may be more beneficial.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

I absolutely love this cardio workout; it can be varied by ability level as well. Plus it has very little "hard" running in it. I do this one at least once a week; it makes you feel great when you're finished! It's amazing how a workout done in under one hour on one machine can make you sweat so much! Trust me, take the 50 minutes out of your day and try it!

The name of the workout is "Treadmill Shredmill!"

First Set:
0-3 minutes: incline=2 speed=3.5mph
3-5 minutes incline-4 speed=4.omph
5-7 minutes incline=5 speed=5mph
7-8 minutes incline=2 speed=6.0mph

Second Set: (same as the first)
8-11 minutes incline=2 speed=3.5mph
11-13 minutes incline=4 speed=4.0mph
13-15 minutes incline=5 speed=5.0mph
15-16 minutes incline=2 speed=6.0mph

Third Set:
16-20 minutes incline=12 speed=3.7mph
20-21 minutes incline=15 speed=4.0mph
21-23 minutes incline=10 speed=3.0mph

Fourth Set: (Repeat Set#3)
23-27 minutes incline=12 speed=3.7mph
27-28 minutes incline=15 speed=4.0 mph
28-30 minutes incline=10 speed=3.0 mph

Fifth Set: (Repeat Set#3 again)
30-34 minutes incline=12 speed=3.7 mph
34-35 minutes incline=15 speed=4.0 mph
35-37 minutes incline=10 speed=3.0 mph

Sixth Set: (Repeat #3 one last time!)
37-41 minutes: incline-12 speed=3.7 mph
41-42 minutes incline=15 speed=4.0 mph
42-44 minutes incline=10 speed=3.0 mph

Last Set: (GO HARD!)
44-45 minutes: incline=2 speed=6.0-10.0 mph (you choose!)

Cooldown: (Walk!)
45-50 minutes: incline=0 speed=3.0-3.5 mph

As I said previously it can be altered. Some days I remove or add sets; it all depends.
