A new year means a stronger and healthier version of ourselves! While I’ve amped up my fitness routine over the last few months, you may find yourself just getting started. Introducing cardio into your weekly gameplan will allow you to burn calories in just a few minutes. However, for even greater lower-body-sculpting power, you’ll need to add hills into your workout. Today I’m sharing a 500 calorie treadmill workout that targets your butt in 30 minutes! This interval workout is a combination of walking hills and short sprints with just a bit of incline to help reduce the chance of developing shin splints. Aside from a toned tush and thighs, intervals are also proven to target belly fat, making it double effective. In about 30 minutes, you’ll burn over 500 calories!
TUSH TONING INTERVAL WORKOUT

– Allow yourself an adequate warm-up period. Whether it is a brisk 5 minute walk on the treadmill, or 15 minutes on the stairmaster, your muscles need to be warm in order to complete this interval workout and eliminate risk for injury.
– This workout should be challenging. As you get stronger and build endurance, be sure to increase your running speed. This will help you build strength and burn additional calories.
– Limit your rest period. I begin my decline at the 45 second mark in order to ensure I’m able to accomodate a full 2 minute sprint period.
