Work Your Booty With a Quick Treadmill Hike

Jun 12 2014 - 3:07am

If you're looking for a quick cardio workout that does double duty for your backside, try this 20-minute treadmill workout. The plan's incline gradually increases while the speed changes to keep you feeling confident (and safe!) from start to finish. It's the perfect workout for someone brand-new to a fitness routine who wants to get their heart rate up, but more seasoned runners should try it too! This booty-burning walking workout might just make you want to break out into a sprint once completed.
