... to treadmill users/ owners.
I was advised to do the following workout to increase cardiac endurance. I dare anybody reading this to give it a shot and then come back and brag that you did it. It's really very do-able (only the last 5 minutes are brutal, but you can slow it down to make it better).
On the treadmill:
- 5 min = 5.5 speed
- 5 min = 6.3 speed (should be 6.5-7)
- 5 min = 2.7 speed incline 6% backwards
- 5 min = 2.0 speed incline 0% sidestep (each side = should be 2 min, but I screwed up and did 5min)
- 5 min = 5.3 speed incline 12% (the killer :-)
My totals by treadmill was:
1.94 distance (miles??)
244.7 Cal (but I didn't enter my weight or age, so who knows?)
Supposedly one should repeat this workout 2-3 times in a row, but I really didn't have that much time on hand.
