I know I give cardio a good ol’ bashing.
Especially the slow-go stuff that most people do on a dreadmill.
Having said that I do hop the the dreadmill from time to time.
I like to do some ‘Terminator 2’ style intervals.
You know the bit where he’s chasing John Connor?
The T-1000 sprinting his assimus off?
Well, that’s me on the dreadmill.
Although my favourite is a 10 minute routine I like to call the ‘Running Man’.
Here’s how you do it…
1. Start the dreadmill at a comfortable pace and stick with that pace for 3 minutes.
2. Once you get to the 3 minute mark dial the speed up by 0.5 kmph every minute.
3. If you’ve set the pace about right, they’ll be several questions bouncing inside that noggin of yours around minute 6 and 7.
Something like “Holy sh*t, I don’t think I can keep this up! Maybe I can? No I can’t!”
4. Once you get to minute 8 you’ll see the light at the end of the tunnel and be able to muster enough mojo to finish.
It’s a tough little workout that I like to use occasionally to finish with a bang.
So, if you must go on the dreadmill try my T-1000 sprints or the Running Man. :)
And if you’re not a fan of the dreadmill or would like to triple your fat loss, without slow-go cardio, I know something that will help you…
It’s called Lean in 19 | Extreme Fat Loss Plan (shameless plug)
I promise, not a dreadmill in sight.
