Description: After a five minute warm-up you’ll start your climb. Every two minutes the hill will become steeper. At each incline you will challenge yourself by incorporating the arms for 90 second intervals which will increase your heart rate and enhance your workout. Once we reach the top of the hill, we’ll make our way back down. This workout will help you burn a ton of calories while challenging your overall endurance and stamina. This workout will have you working primarily in zones 2-4. You should find yourself in a zone 2-3 during the warm-up and in the cool down. As the incline increases, you should find yourself working in zone 3 and possibly zone 4. Working in a zone 3 should feel like a 5-7/10 in terms of difficulty. You should notice that your heart rate increases when you move the arms up and down overhead or out in front. When you take the arms out of the movement, you should notice that your heart rate decreases slightly. Once you reach the higher inclines, you may find your heart rate moving into a high zone 3 or even a zone 4 which feels like a 7-9/10.
All fitness levels can enjoy this workout. The speeds and inclines recommended in the recording are baselines and can be modified to suit your individual needs. As your fitness level improves, you’ll be able to challenge yourself with more speed and a greater incline. The goal is to have fun and get a great workout so please listen to your body!
