This got me thinking about other treadmill workouts for non-runners like me. Just because we can't run, don't like to run or have a running injury doesn't mean that the treadmill is off limits for a good interval training workout.
I talked about interval training in this post and today I'm going to share some really good treadmill interval workouts (including the one I did today) that can be modified to match your level of walking.
This is the workout I did today (my speeds are in kph...because I live in Hong Kong):
From online friends and apps that I've tried and liked (if no speed or incline is indicated, chose what's best for you):
I thought this one sounded fun, but I haven't tried it yet (I've got to get over my worrying about what others at the gym will think issues):
This shows how to use the basic interval training plan, just choose the walking speed that fits your fitness.
Of course these workouts can all be modified for all the runners out there, too.
Do you do workouts on the treadmill or do you just walk/run?
*Please note that all speeds are suggestions. Set your treadmill speed to what best suits your fitness ability.
**Also, if a warmup/cool down is not included in the workout, be sure to include 5-10 minutes of movement before starting the workout and 10-15 minutes after finishing.
