This Incline Treadmill Cardio Workout is the perfect workout to activate your glutes, hamstrings, thighs, and calves, and burn calories while you’re at it. The variety of intervals will keep you on your toes and having fun while getting a great cardiovascular workout.

The workout will take you through various intervals at different inclines and speeds, with 2 minutes of work to 1 minute of rest. For the intervals of work, we will be increasing the incline to levels of 8, 10, and 12 and increasing the speed to 3.5-4 miles per hour, if you’re really ready for a challenge feel free to increase the speed even more to a slow jog or run. Throughout the rest intervals, lower the incline back down to 4, and decreasing the speed to 2.5 miles per hour.

The goal is to achieve a challenging and effective cardio workout, so if you need to adjust the incline or speed up or down to match your fitness level please do so. This workout was designed for fast walking to mimic hiking outdoors on the comfort of your indoor treadmill, however if you’d like to jog or run go for it!
