30 Minute Incline Walk (with Beginner Options)

So, I’ve totally been meaning to share this walking workout with you guys since last Friday. Whoops.

I mentioned the workout quickly last week and I ended up doing it again over the weekend. It’s perfect for those days when you might not be quite in the mood to run, but you still want to push yourself.

Enter: Intervals + Killer Inclines

30 Minute Incline Walk

You’ll notice that there isn’t too much of a change in speeds, but the inclines will definitely be noticed. As always, feel free to adjust everything according to your own fitness levels. I’ve got some long legs, so I can walk at a 4.5…for some of you, that may sound crazy. No worries…make it work for YOU.

For those of you who may just be starting out on your fitness journey, or are just looking for something a little less intense, I put together a beginner version of the same workout with slightly lower speeds and inclines.

If you’ve got a little extra time and want to include some strength and/or core work with your walking intervals, feel free to pair this routine up with one of the following circuits:

By the time you finish, I’d be willing to put money on the fact that you’ll be a nice, sweaty mess. Winking smile

    At the grand total of 4″9.5 4.5mph is definitely past the walking stage for me lol! Funnily enough, I actually did a similar workout today plus some ab work 😉

    I’ve recently been adding incline walking to my workouts but I’ve been wondering: compared to running, which body parts benefit the most from it? Is it good for our booties and hips? I’d love to get rid of my lovehandles!

    I did incline workouts yesterday at the gym! Mine was sliiiighty different. We started at 10 and went up in incline but the speed was much lower (from 3.0 to 3.5). Listen to Courtney when she says you’ll be a sweaty mess when you’re done. SO TRUE! I was sweating for a good five minutes AFTER I got off the treadmill 😉
