As the weather turns colder, I am getting a bit more creative with my workout options. While I don’t loathe the treadmill, I have to play games on it to get my miles in.
You all know how much I love interval work and HIIT (high intensity interval training).
As part of the GNC Fall Workout Series, I created a new 30 minute treadmill workout for you. This is easily transferable to the elliptical, stair machine, or bike.
After a 5 minute warm-up, you will do 1 minute intervals that are broken down by speed–which is adjustable for any fitness level.
So, you will run for 50 seconds at a comfortable speed like 6.5 mph, then sprint for 10 seconds (9.0 mph). Followed immediately by 40 seconds back at your original speed and 20 seconds at a sprint and so on. You can see each, progressing interval allows for reduced recovery time which is where the challenge lies.
Once you get through the 5 minutes, recover for 2 minutes walking, then repeat 2 more times. Modify the speeds according to your fitness level and work hard!

I have been taking GNC’s Probiotic line. Improved digestion? Yes, please. Especially, when I am sampling some not so healthy eats lately. I also am continuing to take the Fish Oil supplements. You’ve probably read about the benefits of fish oil which include a healthy does of omega-3′s, support skin & joint health, reduce inflammation, and heart health.
The newest protein obsession in our household is AMP 60 Cookies-N-Cream.
I might have to hide it from Coach or I’ll never get any!
The Oatmeal Protein Bar Deluxe is a treat that Coach described as “crack”!
These bars have 30 g of protein and only 6 g of sugar. They are a hearty protein bar that can serve as a meal replacement at 390 calories. I typically choose bars less than 200 calories, so I will split these monsters in half. Coach likes to heat these in the microwave at work after a CrossFit WOD.
