Sunday Sweat: Full Body Interval Circuit | 45 Minute Treadmill & Bodyweight Workout

October 15, 2017

Happy Sunday FUNDAY! If you haven't already got your sweat in this AM - try this full body treadmill workout. This is the exact routine I did this morning and it left me drenched!

 

If you are usually one to hop on the treadmill and run at a steady pace for 45 minutes, you know what I mean when I say one treadmill minute can feel like eternity. This workout is a great way to mix things up and engage MORE muscles than steady state running. By adding in the two mini circuits between running intervals, you will not only be including bodyweight strength training into your workout, but you'll also find that 45 minutes goes by way faster when it is broken up into smaller time sessions of different exercises.

 

I did this workout on a treadmill - but you DO NOT need any equipment at all! If you have access to a running track, you can do this workout outside. Find what you enjoy and what works for your lifestyle. 

 

Check out the full breakdown of the workout below!
