Hi guys!!! It’s been way too long since I have written!! Hope you are all doing well!!! <3
I wanted to share a few cardio workouts I learned on the ranch from Brett & Jillian so you can try them at home!! I posted Brett’s treadmill workout a while ago on my FB & everyone LOVED it!!! It’s VERY brutal, but it’s a great sweat and you will love it when you’re done!! Here it is!
BRETT’S TREADMILL WORKOUT!:
Warm up in any way you usually do (I walk at a 12 incline at 3.0 for 5 minutes)
-5 sets of jogging intervals! 2 minutes on, 1 minute off
2 minutes on run at a fast jog/slow run (I run at a 7.5-8.0)
… 1 minute of walking at a very slow pace (2.0-2.5)
Do that 5 times for a total of 15 minutes
-6 sets of sprint intervals! 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off
30 seconds at a full out sprint (I do these at a 10.0-11.0 depending on the day)
30 seconds walking at a very slow pace (2.0-2.5)
Do that 6 times for a total of 6 minutes
-Jog a half mile at your own pace (I usually do it at a 6.5)
Cool down! Walk it out at your own pace.
This treadmill workout is usually about 30-35 minutes of a VERY intense, but awesome workout!! When we were on the ranch, Brett had Justin & I do it TWO times in a row! YIKES! haha…I still do it today & it’s killer & I love it!
ALSO…PLEASEEEE realize that the speeds I posted are just MY speeds (because some of you asked), but you do NOT have to run at those speeds. If you can’t run at all, modify it into a walking interval treadmill workout. There are always ways to modify. You can add an incline to your walk as well which is a GREAT burn & great sweat…along with your butt thanking you later too!!! The most important part of it is that you get your heart rate up high & bring it back down over and over again. That will get you the best calorie burn & you will burn the most fat!
The next workout that is also quick & brutal is Jillian’s Stairmaster workout!!! It might not seem that bad when you hear it…but try it and you will be dying…in a good way!!! Here it is!:
Warm up at a level 5 to 10 for 5 minutes to get the blood flowing
20 second intervals!! 20 on, 20 off (not doing anything…not even a slow step)
20 seconds on at a LEVEL 20
20 seconds off//paused
Do this 20 TIMES!!
It’s a very quick workout and you should be able to get it done in about 30 minutes as well!!! Don’t judge before you try! Level 20 is no joke and you will basically be runnning up the stairs!
Remember that you can modify this!!!! If you are just starting to workout, DON’T TRY TO DO THIS!!! You can modify it at lower levels and build yourself up to this workout!
Best of luck to ALL of you on this!!! I think you will love these workouts & let me know if you try them & what you think!!!!! And of course, thank you to Brett Hoebel & Jillian Michaels for kicking my ass at the ranch during these workouts so I could come and share them with you all!!!
