This Treadmill Push HIIT Session is ideal for those looking to drop fat and a proper, effective HIIT session rather than a circuit with mountain climbers and burpees.
5 minutes progressing from a walk to a fast jog
2 x 15 second treadmill pushes
45 seconds rest between efforts
15 second treadmill push at 100% effort
This is the kind of intensity you need to work at to get the most out of your HIIT cardio, which shouldn’t be completed more than 3-4 times per week (if performed at the right intensity).
If you cannot perform HIIT cardio for health reasons lower intensity options are still great in addition to progressive weight training, as are lower impact options like swimming, the watt bike and cross trainer.
