My "favorite" workout
May 13, 2011
I am not one of those folks that learns to love exercise. I'm going to be like Oprah and never like it. Today I did my "favorite" workout. It is my favorite because it is easy and fast. Doing this workout only takes 30 minutes plus cooldown, and at my weight/age, it burns over 400 calories! There are special treadmills at my gym that have the incline up to level 30.
One of the best aspects of this workout is the speed - most of the time you are only walking at 2 miles per hour. I have to hang on for the 21 and 30 inclines - one of my goals is to try to get through it without hanging on. Something to shoot for. According to the folks at the gym, walking at 2mph at the high incline is where the most fat is burned.
I also gave myself a break today by not getting up at the buttcrack of dawn to go to the gym. I had an early meeting so I decided to sleep later and brought my workout clothes so that I could go after work. And I actually went.
