There are a thousand and one ways to work out on a treadmill, but my favorite is intervals. Changing your pace every few minutes busts through the boredom often associated with indoor running, and once you set your pace on the treadmill it's difficult to cheat. In this workout the set speed pushes you beyond my comfort zone with a gradual build, and the minute recovery is just long enough to lower your heart rate to rev myself for the next interval. Another reason to love intervals: they help you lose belly fat. This workout combines running with walking, so if you new to intervals you should give it a try.
This workout, created by Jeanette Jenkins, is a heart-pumping, calorie-burning circuit that combines core cardio, core sculpting, and total-body core sculpting to blast away the belly fat! All of these exercises can be found in Jeanette's Blast The Belly Fat DVD, voted "Best Fat Melter" by Fitness Magazine.
Instructions: warm up with light cardio for three to five minutes, then work through the circuit three times. Props needed: a set of dumbbells (five to 10 pounds) and an exercise ball.
