New Tabata Treadmill Workout

Hi there! How’s your Tuesday going?

Did you get to watch the Boston Marathon yesterday? One word came to mind as I watched throughout the morning at work – STRENGTH!!! Every single runner showed an amazing amount of strength and endurance. Reading the recaps from some of the bloggers that I posted about on Friday left me with chills and tears. Bravo to all who ran. You have left all of us in wonderment and awe!

Tabata Treadmill Workout

I haven’t done a Tabata Treadmill Workout in awhile so I thought I’d pull one together this morning for my run.



For the rest portions, I just jumped off onto the side rails.

Quick and dirty treadmill workout done in 30 minutes! I love it!

I’m linking up with Lindsay again for another edition of Tuesday Trainer.

This week it’s all about the core. My contribution is a Plank with Diagonal Arm Reach. It’s a basic plank with a nice twist to make it a little harder. If you were wondering what you should do for a workout today. This is it! Hit the treadmill for a little Tabata action followed up by core work. Perfect!

Also, check out my latest post at Breathe Magazine. If you are a runner looking for yoga postures to help with your aches, this article is for you!

Questions of the Day

Have you ever done a Tabata Treadmill Workout?

What’s the fastest speed you’ve run on a treadmill?

Planks – forearms or hands? You should be doing them on your forearms! :) Much harder!

  1. I love planks to strengthen my core!!! It’s really important for runners to build strength in the core (and glutes) to helps stabilize the pelvis so that they can have proper running form (and less injuries, horray!!!). Thanks so much for posting, I’m going to do some today at the gym :-)

  2. Yes, I’ve done Tabatas; the fastest speed I dared to do was 11.5, but I couldn’t do too many intervals at that speed. I’ve always done planks on my forearms, and recently did them on a swiss ball, which was way harder than I thought it would be. I struggled a bit to get good form, and then I could barely hold it for a minute.

  3. I still need to try one of these Tabata workouts– I have a feeling I’m going to be using the treadmill more than I want to this summer as it heats up. It’s already averaging the 80’s down here. Ugh. Thanks for sharing!
