I have found ANOTHER way to shock my body using the treadmill! I rarely ever practice a steady jog on a treadmill, because I prefer to do my running outside in nature. This being said, I am always trying to find new ways to step up my cardio, work up a sweat and tone my booty and thighs. In this interval routine, you will need a flat surface for a wall sit and a treadmill.
Step 1 – Treadmills Walking Squats
On the treadmill, face sideways and get in a squat position. Holding the squat position, step apart and then back together. The treadmill should be at a slight incline and set to a low speed.Perform these walking squats for 1 minute on each side.
Tip: While engaging your core, try to keep from standing up out of the
squat position and really feel that burn!
Step 2 – Elevated Glute Bridge
Next, it’s going to get a little weird, but we can’t neglect the tush! Lay down behind the treadmill. If you would like, place a mat beneath you. Position your heels on each side of the treadmill and lift your glutes up off of the ground. Pulse your glutes up for 30 reps.
Step 3 – Single Leg Wall Sit
Lastly, position your back against a wall and lower down into a squat. Lift one leg forward, so you are balancing on one leg. Place your hands by your sides for balance, not assistance, and hold for 30 seconds and then switch legs and hold for another 30 seconds. Squeeze your booty like your life depends on it!
Repeat 3 more times.
