What the hell is going on with my body? Am I ever going to get rid of baby weight anytime soon? You must be thinking of this every time you catch a glimpse of yourself in the mirror!
Assuming you had no complications in your recovery, and you got the go-ahead from your doc to exercise several weeks or months ago, now’s the time to get serious about shedding those extra pounds. If you are looking to push yourself with a good cardio workout, look no further. Here’s a 45 minute treadmill routine that will definetly get your heart pumping. It’s tough but you can do it! If you feel tired, don’t give up on the whole thing. Back off for 30 seconds or a minute, but keep moving, and try again to get back into rhythm of the workout as soon as you are ready. Also, keep in mind that the numbers we give you here are just rough guidelines, and you need to do whatever is going to challenge you and get you sweating. Lets get started!
0: 00 – 1:30 : Walk at 5 km per hour, with the incline set to 2%. Adding a little incline always gives you an intense workout.
1:30 – 10:00: Jog at 8 km per hour, keeping the incline at 2%
10:00 – 20:00: Do intervals, alternating between 90 seconds of hard running at 10 km or more and then 1 minute of speed-walking at about 6 km. Start with hard running and end with speed walking.
20:00 – 24:00 : Slow the treadmill way down to 2 or 3 km per hour and do moving lunges.
24:00 – 32:00 : Increase the incline to 4% and jog at 8 km per hour.
32:00 – 40:00 : Slow down to 5 or 6 km per hour speed and raise the incline to 10%. Climb that hill, mommy!
40:00 – 45:00 : Bring the incline down to 2% and cool down with 1 minute of jogging at 8 km, 2 minutes of speed walking at 6 km, 1 minute of walking at 5 km and a final minute of walking slowly at 3 km.
Nice job! You have done well!
