HIIT Cardio Workout: Treadmill & Stairmaster

This is the first time I’ve done HIIT on the stair master and thought I’d post my workout for all of you to try! It’s the same structure as the HIIT workouts I do on the treadmill. Enjoy but be ready to sweat a waterfall!

Warm Up:
Swing your legs around (Not joking!)

Treadmill:
Incline / Speed / Minutes
15 / 3.0 / 2
15 / 5.0 / 1
13 / 2.8 / 2
13 / 5.2 / 1
10 / 3.0 / 2
10 / 5.4 / 1
8 / 3.0 / 2
8 / 5.8 / 1
6 / 2.8 / 2
6 / 6.0 / 1
Cool Down

Stair Master:
For the stair master I alternated between level 5 and 10 for 2 minutes and then 1 minute. I’ll write it down below to visualize.
Level/Speed // Minutes
5 // 2
10 // 1
5 // 2
10 // 1

Let me know if you try this workout out and definitely let me know what you thought of it! It was tough but put me in the best of moods after a miserable day!

HIIT + Cardio Workout

Since I haven’t done a good cardio workout in a while, I decided to do one today! Usually I find LISS cardio workouts really boring. I can’t do the same thing for 45 minutes. So instead, I changed it up and used 3 different cardio machines for today’s work out, keeping my heart guessing and myself less bored!

Treadmill
Incline / Speed / Minutes
15 / 2.8 / 2
15 / 4.5 / 1
13 / 3.0 / 2
13 / 5.0 / 1
10 / 2.8 / 2
10 / 5.5 / 1
8 / 3.0 / 2
8 / 5.8 / 1
5 / 2.8 / 2
5 / 6.0 / 1
Cool down for 2 minutes

Then I went to the stair machine and used it for 10 minutes on level 7. This was the first time I’ve ever used a stair machine and I absolutely love it! It really worked out my heart and left me sweating a waterfall!

After that I used the elliptical for 15 minutes with no incline at a speed of 5.8.          
I ended my workout with a 2 minute cool down on the elliptical and then stretched out my legs.
