Today’s workout

Again, another day of knocking out some cardio. Today I did 35 minutes on the treadmill. Today I did some HIIT training, instead of static cardio like yesterday.

I start at a certain level for the first 2 minutes to warm up, then increase the intensity by elevating the angle of the treadmill by 1% every two minutes. When I’ve done these three times, I descend the platform back to my beginning level.

Here’s the example if you’d like to try this:

  • 2 minutes level 1
  • 2 minutes level 2
  • 2 minutes level 3
  • 2 minutes level 4
  • 2 minutes level 2
  • 2 minutes level 3
  • 2 minutes level 4
  • 2 minutes level 2
  • 2 minutes level 3
  • 2 minutes level 4
  • 2 minutes level 2
  • 2 minutes level 3
  • 2 minutes level 4
  • 4 minutes level 5
  • 5 minutes cool down
  • Total workout time: 35 minutes

Once this is comfortable, you can elevate your starting level and continue upwards. Great Saturday workout. You’ll get a really good sweat going.

Since I lift weights Mon-Thursday, I do cardio or take the day off on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. This week I’m feeling motivated, so it’ll be cardio for all three days. On Monday, we start week 3 of the final phase of the shortcut to size program I’ve been following for the last 10 weeks.

Cardio is important because it works the cardiovascular system and helps build your body’s ability to process oxygen. This can really do wonders for your weight routine particularly on those days where you are shooting for hypertrophy and a lot of repetitions.

I hope everyone is having a terrific Saturday!

See you tomorrow!!
