Default The Ultimate Walking Workout (Outside & Treadmill)

I'm bored so I decided to type this up from an article I have, from the April 2004 Fitness mag.

This is for a treadmill and based on a 135lb woman you'll burn 500 calories in 60 minutes.

TIME INCLINE(%) SPEED
0-5:00 /1 /3.5
5:00-7:00 /3 /4.0
7:00-9:00 /5 /4.0
9:00-11:00 /7 /4.0
11:00-14:00 /9 /4.0
14:00-17:00 /11 /3.8
17:00-20:00 /9 /4.0
20:00-50:00 /Repeat min.5-20 twice
50:00-56:00 /12 /3.5
56:00-60:00 /0 /3.2

Outside Walking: 6 Week Get Lean Plan
Zone 1: 65-70% of Max HR (Heart Rate)
Zone 2: 70-80% of Max HR
Zone 3: 80-85% of Max HR

*You will start off in zone 1, where your body is used to burning fat for energy and gradually move into higher intensities (zones 2 and 3) The slow progression allows your body to adapt to using fat for fuel at greater levels of effort so you can exercise longer and get leaner faster*

*Start every workout with a 5 minute warm up, cool down at your own pace for as long as you want, and at the end stretch for a few minutes*

Week 1 (Zones 1-2)
Mon- Walk 30 minutes in high end of zone 1/low end of zone 2.
