Last week I wrote about how to use the treadmill to help shape and tighten your legs, and this week I will be talking about one of my favorite pieces of cardio equipment: the StepMill.
Off the bat, nothing makes me sweat more than this bad boy— and for that alone I love it! I like to rotate this as one of my cardio workouts. Last week, I gave you a treadmill workout; you could do that treadmill workout one day and follow up with this. I will be adding in some more cardio workouts for you to alternate, but for now you could do the following:
Sample Cardio Workout Schedule
Monday: Treadmill Workout
Tuesday: StepMill Workout
Wednesday: Treadmill Workout
Thursday: StepMill Workout
Friday: Treadmill Workout
Saturday: **Optional** StepMill Workout
Here are the moves we will be doing
Keep your body upright and push through heels, working at about 50 percent of max effort.
Keep your body upright, push through heels, work at about 70 percent of max effort.
