An Easy, Effective Treadmill Workout

Lose excess pounds fast with this simple treadmill workout.


By Anne Marie O'Connor, Family Circle

Can’t get outside for your workout? Hop on a treadmill. It’s an all-weather option, and because you can quickly adjust the machine’s speed and incline, it allows you to effortlessly take your walking to the next level.

[post_ads]“Walking on an incline increases intensity, burns more calories, and tones your buttocks and hamstrings,” says Shirley Archer, author of The Walking Deck: 50 Ways to Walk Yourself Healthy (Chronicle Books). Plus, a treadmill is easier on your knees and feet than concrete or asphalt.

The key to getting the most out of a treadmill workout is interval training: alternate stepping at a comfortable pace for a few minutes with cranking up the speed and/or increasing the incline for a minute or two. Print and save this routine. 

The Routine
Set the treadmill at a 1 percent incline to begin.
