Hey Hey Loves! Ahhh, I'm excited to finally be sharing this sweat-your-face off HIIT Treadmill Workout that I like to call the Sprint Ladder!! Wee
This is one of absolute favorite treadmill workouts that I created & started doing about 3ish months ago! This is an awesome way to get your heart rate up, scorch some serious calories in a short amount of time & boost your metabolism so your burning more calories at rest! #winning
HIIT is one of my favorite ways to train and I usually do at least 1 HIIT workout if not 2 per week (depending on what other workouts have looked like).
What I love about the Sprint Ladder, is that your gradually working into your max sprint speed. I'm a huge advocate of a proper warm up. With that being said, before every workout, I complete either a series of dynamic warm ups (jumping jacks, butt kickers, high knees, etc..) or I hop on a piece of cardio equipment and/or do a bit of incline walking (as I have you doing here) to active my hamstrings since I tend to be pretty quad dominant (as many people are). With the structure of this HIIT Workout, your getting in a proper warm up and then some, especially since your double-timing each sprint!
I've given a "suggested workout" that I believe will work for many fitness levels. Use the sprint speeds given - start to finish - or modify where needed. That's the beauty of this workout!! 6.0 is a good "jog's pace" for [me] to warm up, but perhaps a better starting speed would be 5.0 or 5.5 for you. And for the finish, maybe you go to 8.5, maybe you don't or maybe you exceed it!
Listen to the LS FIT TIPS given above and please, please listen to your body!
Hope you guys love this workout as much as I do! xx
