I really could use another 128 hours in my week. Which is why I have fallen in love with Tabata workouts. Tabatas take a total of 4 minutes to complete- 4 sets of 20-seconds active alternated with 10-seconds of rest. It sounds easier than it is.
Download the free tabata timer app. I love this app because it allows me to listen to music while following along to beeping cues instead of watching a clock.
Before you get started:
1. Warm up for 3 minutes by walking.
2. Set the incline to 7+. This step is critical for maximum results.
3. While stepping on the sides of the treadmill, increase the speed 10 units faster than you would set the treadmill for jogging. I jog at 7.0 and do tabtatas at around 8.0 to 8.5.
Feel the burn!
