Treadmill Bodyweight Workout

Hi Dee

I'm going to outline a workout plan for you plus something to consider that will help you get even better results once you've been on our little plan for about 3 weeks.

Here's your treadmill bodyweight workout plan for the next 3 weeks.

Warm-up on the treadmill for 5 minutes at a moderately fast pace. Be sure to put on some fun music to keep yourself motivated. You want to feel like you're walking fast enough to almost be out of breathe but not so fast that you are out of breathe.

Once you warm up do the quick routine you see in the video below then continue with bodyweight exercise workout. You won't need any weights or equipment for this. If you're a beginner only go through the circuit twice. If you're advanced then do it three times.

After you have completed the bodyweight workout jump back on the treadmill and do 4 minutes of cardio intervals alternating between 30 seconds of super fast walking and 30 seconds of slow walking but here's the fun part you will do both on an incline setting. This will challenge your body a lot more than just walking on a flat surface.

On your days off work on strengthening your core with my toned abs workout.

After 3 weeks switch to my At Home Weightloss Workouts Plan. You may see other cardio machines in the workouts but don't worry you can just use your treadmill instead (the workouts here are flexible so everybody can just adapt them to the equipment they have).

You may also need some fitness equipment for some exercises. A $9 resistance band and a cheap dumbbell work for most exercises (use the tips and your imagination to adapt workouts to your needs).

Keep in mind that a set of resistance bands or a couple of dumbbells costs less than eating out or going to the movies and it's important to spend a little money on fitness items every now and then to support your health and fitness goals.

This sends a message to your brain that staying fit matters to you and this motivates you to learn new exercises and stay consistent with your workouts.
