Get Fitter... Week 2

Again, sticking to at least 4 workouts between Monday to Friday. his week will be 3 intervals sessions and one strength session...

I planned to do some hill walking intervals on the treadmill but I'm buying my trainers on Tuesday (tomorrow).

Try this:
  • Warm up for 5 minutes
  • Increase speed to 6-7 RPE (Rate of perceived exertion. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being the easiest). This varies for everyone so I won't put an exact speed. And incline to 5. 
  • Walk for 2 minutes.
  • Reduce speed to a very slow walk for 1 minute.
  • Increase, 2 minutes walk again.
  • Repeat this 8-10 times.
    **Challenge yourself by slowly increasing the incline or speed as you go on**
  • Bring down the incline and speed, cool down for 10 minutes.
  • Stretch.
Now you can replicate this on a cross trainer (elliptical) or even outdoors (find a hilly area).
