Tread-Plyo Cardio

Combining plyo exercises with an incline treadmill makes for a killer workout. If you are not looking to break your neck, perform the plyo exercises off the treadmill.

So here’s an example of how it goes. Walk on the treadmill for 3 minutes at 3.5 mph and a 10% incline. At 3 minutes jump off the treadmill and complete 15 jump squats. Rest off the treadmill for 30 second. Hop back on the treadmill and continue.

Warm-up: 5 min 3-3.5 mph @ 1% incline

3 min 3.5 mph @ 10% incline

15 jump squats

30 sec rest

3 min 3.5 mph @ 10% incline

15 jump squats with heel tap

30 sec rest

3 min 3.5 mph @ 10% incline

16 lunge jumps (8 each leg)

30 sec rest

3 min 3.5 mph @ 10% incline

16 ice skaters (8 each leg)

30 sec rest

Repeat the whole sequence once more.

Cool down: 5 min walk

 

Please listen to your body and modify as necessary. Enjoy!
