Cardio/Leg Fatigue Workout

I just completed this workout aimed at getting my heart rate pumping, my legs exhausted, and my body dripping sweat. I definitely accomplished what I set out to do. Give it a try! It took me about 1.5 hours, but I was in no hurry. Do just one set of the whole workout for less time, or 2 for the 1.5 hours. Vary the speeds and weights on your workout to fit your fitness ability. Mine are listed as examples.

  • 5 min warm-up
  • 10 minute treadmill interval:
    • 1 min walk @ 4.0
    • 30 sec jog @ 6.0
    • 20 sec sprint @ 8.5
    • repeat until 9 minutes
    • 1 min walk @ 3.5-4.0
  • 3 Sets of:
    • 15 dead lifts with 35 lbs
    • 15 squats with 20 lbs
    • 1 min plank
  • 10 minute treadmill interval:
    • 1 min walk @ 4.0
    • 30 sec jog @ 6.0
    • 20 sec sprint @ 8.5
    • repeat until 9 minutes
    • 1 min walk @ 3.5-4.0
  • 3 Sets of:
    • 15 front squats with 20 lbs 2x, without weight 1x
    • 15 side squats with 20 lbs
    • 1 min leg/hip lift and lower (focus on using your abs and your hips, not momentum)

Repeat entire sequence for a total of 4 intervals and 4 sets of weights.
