Treadmill Incline Walking Workout

This "All About the Incline" Walking Workout Makes For a Perfect Lunchtime Sweat Sesh

People walking on treadmill.

Adding a little, or a lot, of incline to the treadmill is one way to increase the intensity of your walking workout. Plus, it works your booty too. Here's a quick walking workout I like to do, especially a day or two after a hard strength-training session. It's only 22 minutes, and it gets the blood flowing. I like to end the workout with some core exercises to make my gym time feel complete. Feel free to adjust the speed and incline to fit your needs.
