6. Lateral Shuffle on Treadmill
*Image above shows traditional treadmill running
What it works:
This will be awkward for you and the person next to you on the treadmill since you’ll be grilling him or her, but, hey, all is fair in love and fitness (or something like that.) By side-shuffling on the treadmill, you really give your hips, inner and outer thighs, calves, abs, and obliques a killer workout. You’ll challenge your balance, strength, and coordination to boot. Just be careful with this one as it can be dangerous.
How to do it:
Start by walking (facing forward) on the treadmill at 3.5-4.2 speed. While holding onto the front of the treadmill with your left hand, turn your body to the right and immediately start to shuffle. “Take special care to stay on your toes and make sure your legs don’t cross over,” Langowski says. Do this for 1 minute. Come back to the center of the treadmill and face forward. Walk for 15 seconds, and then repeat this on your left side. (Hold onto the front of the treadmill with your right hand.) Note: You can gradually increase the speed and incline to make this more difficult.
Complete 3 sets of 3-minute reps on each side. Superset this with exercise #5: One-legged burpee.
