If you are ready to take your workout to the next level, then use these examples to get started. The below examples are based on using a treadmill.

Example #1 Interval training workouts for Beginners

Be sure to use the beginner interval training workout before moving onto the advance level.

The HIIT example is designed for beginners that have access to a treadmill. The duration of the first workout is about a 20 minutes session that alternate between a brisk walk, and spurts of jogging.

There is also a slight incline in the walking/jogging in the example routine below to get the blood pumping and add some resistance to build lean muscles. 

Before you start your interval training workouts make sure to do a 5 minute warm up and stretches and then start the set below.
