I'm wondering if any of you either have favorite preset workouts on the treadmill or any fun ways to spice up your treadmill workout in order to rev up your heartrate, shock your metabolism, or just make things interesting?
My normal routine is to walk at a pace of 3.5mph at an incline of at least 5% but usually 10%. I find I'm having a harder time getting my HR up so I started amping up the speed and jogging for as long as I could and then slowing it back down and/or I found I like to do what I think is called "siddles" where I turn sideways and shuffle for as long as I can.
During my cool down I sometimes like to stretch my legs by making my stride as long as possible or I might do a treadmill version on walking lunges where I'll drop my back knee low.
Any thoughts or other ideas?
