Intervals are hands down one of the best ways to crank up the rate that your body burns fat. While sprinting outdoors may be ideal, once winter hits, we all must make concessions regarding our workouts. To keep yourself on track, we’ve got some great ideas for indoor HIIT workouts you can do on the treadmill to ensure consistent exercise even through winter’s dark, cold months.
On a treadmill, warm-up either walking or jogging for 5-10 minutes (make sure your muscles are adequately warm before sprinting or you may risk injury), then do 8 intervals sprinting for 30 seconds and recovering for 1:30 minutes. I am a firm believer that most people can sustain a solid running pace for about 2:00 minutes that would be significantly greater than their normal run pace.
If you are looking for something that is a little more intense, I recommend using a bike or rower for more intense intervals.
I believe sprinting is one of the best forms of exercise in terms of improving strength, speed, endurance, and physical performance.
Sprint workouts on a treadmill are kind of like a neutered version of high-intensity interval training (HIIT), although it’s an acceptable substitute if a proper sprint workout is out of the question. Instead of maximal speed, try cutting it back 20 or 30% so you can put the necessary focus on balance.
My Question is if i do a HIIT treadmill work out consisting of 5 min warm up and then 5 rounds of 2sprint -1rest ratio I burn less calories than if I do a 23 min run taking the levels up (not sprint jus at a fast pace) for a min and down (jogging Pace) for 2 mins. How many times a week do you recommend HIIT, assuming you’re doing strength training and other forms of cardio in that week.
Hi Warren, some of the treadmills do not take in account factors like – weight, age and gender.
I hike through a nature preserve, up and down slopes, then climb the side of an old railroad bridge and finish the last few kilometres on farmer’s field lanes, then down a concession and back up the road to home. Should I trust my breath and the tiredness of my legs when I do the running parts, or trust the alarm and slow down sooner? When most people think of cardio, they think of long, boring jogs, or endless hours on the elliptical. The picture to the right shows an extreme example of the different training outcomes of a marathoner (“steady state” cardio) and sprinter (high intensity interval training cardio).
High Intensity Interval Training involves alternating between very intense bouts of exercise and low intensity exercise. As an added bonus, there’s also an afterburn effect known as EPOC (excess-post exercise oxygen consumption). My 12-Week BuiltLean Transformation Program is based on HIIT because it’s so effective at burning fat.
If you are a beginner, I would recommend only trying HIIT if you can do a session of cardio for 20-30 minutes at 70-85% of your max heart rate. NOTE: Interval training should begin with a 3-5 minute warm up and end with a 3-5 minute cool down to prevent dizziness, or nausea. I do this HIIT workout all the time on a treadmill, jumping rope, or doing kettlebell swings.
Any type of cardio can be used with interval training, but I would caution against running more than a few times per week, because the demands on your metabolic system and joints are significant. Impact of exercise intensity on body fatness and skeletal muscle metabolism” Metabolism, vol. Also, in terms of fat, can you please provide a comparison (i.e For a 175lb male, 20 mins of HIIT is equivalent of X minutes on a treadmill or X minutes on a an ellyptical)? I agree with most everything in this blog entry, especially about using HIIT to train as opposed to steady state cardio. Ultimately, even though there is not doubt intervals are better than steady state, you picked images which would show the most contrast between a marathoner and a sprinter, which isn’t necessarily accurate. One more thing to mention is when I go for a jog, I love to incorporate a little interval training into it.
My question basically is, how many minutes do you have to sprint to equal to 30 minutes of jogging?
So assuming you weigh 175 pounds (80kg) and you jog for 30 minutes, which is around 7 METs, you are burning about 300 calories. I also want to emphasize in my opinion, HIIT is not about calorie burn, but about increasing your aerobic capacity substantially and improving your hormonal response. Sprinters are mainly anaerobic and they have a lot more fast twitch muscle and their explosive speed depends on how much anaerobic power they can produce in a short amount of time.
I’d also add that elite endurance athletes do a lot more interval training than the average gym rat can ever imagine to do. Hi Greg, I thought (my mistake) it was obvious the picture was just an extreme example of both training outcomes and genetics.
Regarding interval training, the research study you presented uses an ergometer as the training modality.
Since Greg seems to be having a very similar issue to the one I had over two weeks ago, I’d like to reiterate (possibly more calmly) the issue with the two pictures you used. Comparing the average sprinter to the average marathoner (of similar age and ethnicity) would reveal a much more subtle difference. Quite frankly, I feel it’s irresponsible for an otherwise knowledgeable fitness website to use this particular tactic. The picture to the right highlights the difference between the body of a marathoner (“steady state” cardio) and sprinter (high intensity interval training cardio). I like to increase the incline to make it even harder on the intervals when running on a treadmill. I have been trying to lose my last bit of weight to hit my target goal of 175, currently at 187. That’s great news that you have improved your body and lost 5kg in only one month with some help from interval training. It sounds like you have a positive mindset to help push you through and reach your potential. I am doing 3 min warm up and 20 min HIIT 15 secs intense and 15 secs slow in the spinning bike. You can start with doing 30 seconds hard on the elliptical, or stationary bike, then 1 minute resting and repeat. 1) I got on the treadmill on Tuesday and just barely got through 18 minutes (with a 4 minute warmup) and had to stop because my body was so fatigued… have others found that when they first started interval training that they hit a period of fatigue? 2) Since starting the higher intensity cardio and weight training I feel skinnier, firmer etc but gosh darn if the scale won’t budge. Table 2: Summary of the reaction time averages and standard deviation of the two experimental conditions.
Our findings revealed that participants acting on congruent trials did experience an improved reaction time when compared to incongruent trials.
In addition to not examining past research entirely, our experimental design possesses other limitations. Despite some of the downfalls of our design, our findings may suggest, that studying related experiments of similar complexity may be administered via the internet without a researcher present. It would be interesting to see how RT is influenced when the amount of noise pollution is increased, as this would mimic a more real life environment.

SCHWARZENEGGER: When I was 18 and still in the army, I entered the European body-building championship and won. SCHWARZENEGGER: I look forward to it, and when it starts, I tell myself that I have to go through this because damn few people can. SCHWARZENEGGER: I've torn pectoral muscles, fibers in my knee, in my thighs, and once I had to have an operation to repair torn cartilage. SCHWARZENEGGER: Really, though in my case, women have told me they're curious about its size—you know, outgoing chicks who're just trying to be outrageous or horny. SCHWARZENEGGER: Are you asking if my basic motivation in building my body was to pick up girls?
SCHWARZENEGGER: I don't have any sexual hang-ups, but I'm sure there are bodybuilders who have trouble with sex, and obviously the body building hasn't helped.
SCHWARZENEGGER: In the past five or six years, I haven't had to do that, but I used to do all kinds of numbers in the gym just to make it clear that I was the best.
SCHWARZENEGGER: The general definition of being muscle-bound is that you have so many muscles that you can't move freely. SCHWARZENEGGER: No, I felt great because I was the first athlete to be in a museum displaying his work of art, which just happened to be my physique. SCHWARZENEGGER: Yes, I've been going to acting school and I know that this is what I really want to do. Several variations on the biceps curl transfer some of the load from the biceps to other flexors of the elbow. Variations on this theme include the preacher curl where the elbows rest upon a sloped bench, which helps to keep the upper arm motionless. It should be an activity you enjoy…a workout you’ll want to continue regularly over the long term. You might have to experiment until you have a baseline exercise schedule that works best for you. If your main goal is to slim down your stomach or thighs, you must go at it by burning fat from head to toe — a full body workout. Give yourself several months of smart eating and regular exercise to make a noticeable difference in your weight and to how your clothes fit.
Effective cardiovascular conditioning is crucial to your ability to burn calories and lose weight. Do interval training during your regular workout by alternating bursts of intense activity with lighter activity.
Increasing the intensity of your exercise within your regular workout will rev up your heart and metabolism.


Work in exercises that focus on your flabby areas such as your stomach, biceps, upper arms or waist.
Just 20 minutes of low-intensity aerobic activity such as power walking can give you a significant energy surge. So draw from a variety of strengthening, toning and cardio modalities to keep your workouts interesting and effective. Toe-reach stretching targets your hamstrings, which remain shortened while you’re sitting. Sit on the floor with your left leg straight in front of you, knee slightly bent, right leg bent out to the side and resting on the floor.
Bend your right knee out to the side so your right ankle is crossed over and resting on the lower left thigh. Hold your left thigh with both hands and pull it toward you until you feel a comfortable stretch in your right hip, glutes and outer thigh.
As with all our workouts, feel free to increase or decrease speed depending on your level of fitness.
If this workout doesn't appeal to you, here are a bunch of other treadmill workouts to try. If you’re trying to drop weight but you don’t like the idea of spending hours and hours in the gym, you need to learn to utilize treadmill interval workouts. These are also perfect for those of you who work out in the gym anyway and are looking for some ideas to change-up your current routine. Two weeks of high-intensity aerobic interval training increases the capacity for fat oxidation during exercise in women.

I do have a question though that has been on my mind for a while and it will be nice if anyone can also contribute to the answer. There may be no definite answer but it would be appreciated if I get a rough figure at least.
Quite simply, that is why science uses averages: The extreme case gives a misleading result and does not accurately reflect the reality for 99% of cases.
I commend you for taking the constructive criticism in stride, something I often find myself hard to do. Anyways, I have been jogging around 3.5-4 miles a day on the treadmill at 5 MPH (haven’t tried faster just to make sure I can keep the pace) and I was wondering how much HIIT you would recommend to compete with that?
I do get the burn in my chest, I am sweating profusely and on my last cycle I feel like puking. Participants performed on average 29.8 ms faster on congruent trials when compared to incongruent trials (See Figure 1).
However, it was suggested visual cues can also measurably influence RT when varying the difficulty of the stimuli (Simon & Wolf, 1963). This is inline with the conclusion made by Craft and Simon (1970), thus supporting their discovery. Firstly, it does not standardize the environment in which participants complete the experiment. This would greatly lower the manpower needed to administer experiments, lower cost dramatically and allow researchers to attend other important areas while the experiments run themselves at the personal leisure of the participants. Furthermore, future studies may want to incorporate a task where auditory cues are shown simultaneously with visual cues to determine if there is an interaction between the senses in responding to congruent and incongruent cues.

It was just like having a vision—you know, like when you hear a person say, "I saw Jesus and he talked to me, and now I'm so happy with life because I know I'm going to be taken care of," and all of a sudden he's relaxed, he's not haunted anymore—well, it was like that.
It was my first competition and, even though it was the junior division, I instantly felt like King Kong, as if I'd already won the Mr. It's like any other sport: You have to do what nobody else can do, and the only way is to push yourself past the limit.
Maybe he's lifting five pounds, maybe only a single pound, but it can make all the difference. There's often a point where you say, "It's getting too intense here." Your partner might be a little scared of the next set because you've been pushing him too hard, so you'll crack a joke and go over to somebody else and bullshit a little.
I don't say, "Arnold, how do you look?" but rather "Let's check out this body in the mirror and see what it looks like today." Professionally, I have to be detached in order to be critical of it. It's true that I was in perfect proportion, but I weighed 228 pounds and I wanted to be 240, overall just bigger. The cock isn't a muscle, so it doesn't grow in relation to the shoulders, say, or the pectorals. A girl can talk about my nose, my teeth or my accent—anything that gets a conversation going is fine with me.
I've been approached by waitresses, stewardesses, teachers—come to think of it, there have been a great many teachers, women who are smart. If a girl comes on strong and says, "I really dig your body and I want to fuck the shit out of you," I just decide whether or not I like her. I can't sleep before competition and I'm up all night, anyway, so instead of staring at the ceiling I figure I might as well find somebody and fuck. There are bodybuilders who are afraid of indulging in sex or even of playing other sports for fear of harming their bodies. It's like Ali doing something dirty in the ring—not many people are going to take it too seriously.
I don't know of any bodybuilder in that category; in fact, many of them are quite active in other sports.
For example, many women seem to have hang-ups about going out with me because they feel they have to be in the same shape that I am. When I was playing soccer at the age of 14, the first thing we'd do before going out onto the field would be to climb up on one another's thighs and massage the legs; it was a regular thing.
I've been in America for only eight years, but there's been a change and it's getting better. One group of variations involves postures that hold the elbows in front of the trunk, shortening the biceps and forcing the brachialis to do more work. Once you’ve got the fat under control, you can usually maintain your tone with two sessions a week. I am in opinion, that all treadmills are using calorie equations from ’70s and ’80s understanding for calorie burnt out. The gentleman you used for your marathoner is of different descent than the gentlemen used to illustrate a sprinter.
Endurance events are aerobic in nature which requires high VO2Max numbers and superb oxygen delivery to the muscles.
If I do intervals it’s at least 16 repeats of 200, 10 repeats of 400 or 6 repeats of 800 meter sprints at various speeds (the longer the interval the slower the speed).
Although the extreme example you provided is TECHNICALLY accurate, it appears to be a deliberate attempt to mislead your readers.
Unless all of your readers are in this 99%, then the presentation you have given is not accurate. For ladies, high intensity interval training won’t make you very muscular, but does help you get leaner faster.
From this, Craft and Simon (1970) conducted a study where they found that participants showed a faster reaction time when visual stimuli were congruent to the response button location. Without a sense of the general noise pollution and lighting conditions under which participants completed the study, it would be very difficult to generalize our findings to other settings.

I didn't get into body building until I was 15, and, at the time, my parents thought I was crazy to get deeply involved with something for which there was so little precedent in Austria. As time passed, I began to see it as a way out of Austria, an escape from the everyday life around me. He was publicized in the muscle magazines as a businessman and movie star, and the combination of the two so impressed me that all I could think of was winning the Mr. But in Austria, the mentality was the reverse; winning against the Americans was unthinkable.
Discipline is what you use when you don't want to do something, when you have to force yourself. The relationship between the two of you is very close—closer than most marriages, in fact—and he has to understand when you're trying to chicken out, as well as when you really have to put the weights down, when you absolutely can't go on. What it means is that somebody is helping, paying attention and really giving you his energy. Injuries happen when your mind is beyond your body, largely when you think you're King Kong and lift weights heavier than the body can handle. Their trip is such a mental one that they are often attracted to men who are big and muscular.


You're not supposed to talk while you're posing, for example, yet I used to do it all the time and it would blow the other guys' minds. Many in California are punks, beach bums just lying around in the sun and maybe collecting unemployment.
If they're overweight, they're insecure, because they don't understand that I don't look at women the same way I look at myself. None of us had a thought of being gay, absolutely not, and it's the same with most bodybuilders.
Jon Voight, Warren Beatty, Sylvester Stallone—I've gotten to know these people and they're a lot of fun. Interval training is also one of the best ways to beat belly bulge, so torch some serious calories with this 45-minute treadmill workout. When it comes to just jogging, I’m able to go for 40 mins and thats under very hot weather because at the moment I live in Kuwait.
You need to stay up at or above lactate threshold for 2+ minutes to get the benefits of interval training.
It relies on slow twitch muscles and the less weight the athlete has to carry the better off they are. We sought to verify their findings by replicating their experimental design, with the use of modern technology. A possible mechanism for slower reaction time on incongruent trials may be explained by auditory research, which suggests that the conflict of irrelevant and relevant cues results in interference and affects performance to a significant degree on RT (Simon & Small, 1969). Also, generalizing our findings to different populations would be misleading, as age may influence RT in response to a visual cue (Simon & Wolf, 1963). For instance, our findings suggest that buttons that require operator interaction be placed on the corresponding side to that of presented cues that determine when button press is required. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited.

I'd look out my parents' window and see people talking over a cup of coffee for two hours or more, and I knew it wasn't for me.
When you lift weights, there's a certain point in the repetitions at which it really starts aching—where you can't go on any further, and the body starts shaking, and you know you have to press one more time. The best example I can think of was one day when Franco Columbu walked into the gym, went down into a squat with 500 pounds on his shoulders and couldn't come back up. Maybe 50 percent respond positively right away, while another 25 or 30 percent need a while to adjust to my size and to realize that ordinarily my muscles are soft, just like anyone's, only bigger. If I tell myself to train the thighs, then the calves, it's boom, boom, mind-thighs, mind-calves, mind-this, mind-that. What Moss and others are talking about is a totally mental thing: If you feel that something's going to affect your body, then it definitely will. If we were going through the compulsory poses—a double-biceps pose, say—I'd just turn to the guy next to me and say, "What a shame, what a disadvantage for you," or I'd psych him in reverse by aying that the disadvantage was mine, that he was definitely going to be the one to win. I'd always wanted to tell people that when I work on my body I'm thinking about classical sculpture, so I jumped at the chance to show off body building as an art form. Stallone's into body building, and Jack Nicholson had a birthday party for me after we finished Stay Hungry.
In addition, the man used to illustrate a marathoner is significantly older than the man used to illustrate the sprinter. Regarding the exercise, I would not recommend exercising too intensely, because you may burn yourself out.
In their study, location of the cue was irrelevant, while the cue itself provided relevant information to the response assessment. More fundamentally, the personal computers on which participants ran the experiment all differ from one another. Doing so may result in faster execution of desired actions and may serve a fundamental role in fields where split second decisions are common place such as the military and aviation industry. It does NOT track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, social security numbers, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. All data and information is provided here with no guarantee of accuracy or validity and should be independently verified. They couldn't see any future in the sport; but there I was, lifting weights two or three hours every day. I had no idea, really, of what a stage even looked like, but I saw myself standing there, posing and winning.
I was living in Munich at the time, hanging out with night people—entertainers, hookers and bar owners—and I had a girlfriend who was a stripper.
Sometimes your body really gets bombed out: You try to go through this pain thing, but your body won't push the weight, and your partner will help you with his fingers just enough so that you can handle it. I lived with a woman for five years, a very smart lady who teaches English at a college in California.
Bodybuilders party a lot, and once, in Gold's—the gym in Venice, California, where all the top guys train—there was a black girl who came out naked. I've always found that sex gives me a kind of calm, and I'm much more in control because of it.
Ninety-five percent of the people training with weights are into this health thing, and it's a different mentality entirely.
After the show, a lot of people came backstage and said it was fantastic, that they'd never thought of body building as art before. All my bodybuilder friends were there, really a mixed crowd—actors, bodybuilders, weight lifters, karate guys and writers—and it was great.
I realize there's only one Arnold in the world, that there's never been an Arnold before, and the one thing that won't work on the screen is my being an ass-kicker. For Example, 10 mins on bike, 5 min run on the treadmill, then alternating 2 mins of squat elliptical position and 3 mins or regular elliptical! Muscle mass (as well as the ability to put on muscle mass) decreases with age, and the roughly 20 years between these two men are certainly enough to make a difference.
But to say that HIIT works for your benefit so you won’t end up looking like the guy on the left is just stupid.
I don’t see your average gym rat running that long ever let alone running it at the intensities I run it at. These differences may include their performance which may affect the presentation of the stimuli and differing sizes of monitors which may impact the viewing of the stimuli.
He'll stand behind you and lift with his fingers and make it possible—but just barely possible—for you to make the lift, and then on the next repetition, maybe he'll help a little bit more. I reminded Franco that four people from New York were watching the great Franco Columbu, the world's strongest bodybuilder, crashing down under a mere 500 pounds.
Olympia contest in 1972, we had girls backstage giving head, then all of us went out and I won. He was enormous, really fantastic, and the audience was screaming for both of us, so you knew it was going to be close. When the Russians were lifting weights in preparation for the Olympics—for the shot-put, the hammer throw and things like that—the Americans picked up on it immediately. If Robert De Niro kills in Taxi Driver, it's perfect, because he's a little guy and people are 100 percent behind him. In their experiment, they reasoned that a slower reaction time which was observed for the incongruent trials was due to the presentation of irrelevant location information. At the same time, no researcher was present to clarify any questions participants may have had about the experiment, whereas all past studies have had the researchers present during testing. Universe had come from America and, as it later turned out, I was the first one to break that pattern.
The guys who are working their way up often say they have to sleep ten hours a day and they try not to get laid more than three times a week, but, sooner or later, most of them find out that all this means shit.
After about 15 minutes of posing, I told him I thought I'd had enough and that we ought to quit, just walk off. I can look at a chick who's a little out of shape and if she turns me on, I won't hesitate to date her. Gay people are fighting the same kind of stereotyping that bodybuilders are: People have certain misconceptions about them just as they do about us. For me, that isn't the right kind of role, because I'm big and therefore I have to play the opposite kind of guy.
1 minute running, 1 minute rest) and increasing the number of cycles (I wouldn’t go much above 10). Our study did replicate the portion of their experiment that examined this idea, and thus we can only speculate about the mechanism for this discrepancy. If you can't go through that pain period, that dead point, then competitively you won't make it. There are a lot of people here watching and they think that the muscle magazines are all bullshitting." He looked around and started breathing heavily, so I pushed it further. Whether you sleep two hours or ten, get laid a dozen times a week or not at all, eat three meals or five, at the end of the week you look absolutely the same; there's no difference.
Do you know what speed it takes to do a snatch, to lift a 700- or 800-pound bar bell so fast that you can raise it over your head?
Well, I have absolutely no hang-ups about the fag business; though it may bother some bodybuilders, it doesn't affect me at all. I bet him $20 in front of everybody that he couldn't do another repetition and then offered an additional $50 if he could go on and do eight reps.
They think that the head is carried around by something very mysterious, and they're not aware that it's the body, something they should be in tune with. Alexiev can't run because he weighs 375 pounds, a weight he needs in order to handle the bar bell. When training for the Olympics, he lifted weights for two hours daily, squatting with almost 500 pounds. He ripped the weight out and just started going up and down as if there were no end, as if he were going to do 50 repetitions.
