The “Treadmill Sucks” 25 Minute HIIT Cardio Workout At Home

On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing 6 at home HIIT cardio exercises that you can do without a treadmill.

I also program these 6 hiit cardio exercises into a 25 minute HIIT cardio workout at home.

Before I do that, let me be 100% upfront, and say just one thing.

When I say the treadmill sucks, I’m referring to the traditional forms of low intensity steady state, slow and boring cardio.

Sure LISS cardio can be beneficial for a period of time for people who are obese or new to fitness.

Pros And Cons Of LISS Cardio

However, if you’re not a beginner or obese, and LISS cardio is the only form of exercise you’re doing, it’s time to break up with the treadmill.

Burn Fat Faster With This HIIT Cardio Workout

When it comes to getting lean and ripped with your cardio workouts, you can’t beat athletic style HIIT cardio workouts.

Using athletic and powerful exercises will kick the butt of slow walks on the treadmill, every single time.

8 Athletic HIIT Cardio Exercises To Make Cardio Fun

Sure treadmill sprints are awesome too, but sometimes it’s great to take your HIIT cardio workouts outside to get some fresh air and vitamin D while you workout.

So if you find yourself just slowly walking on the treadmill for every cardio workout, it’s times to say no.

I want you to start thinking outside the conventional forms of “cardio” and start experimenting with other forms of cardio, besides the treadmill.

It’s time for you to open your eyes to all the athletic, functional, and super fly looking moves you could be doing, to get super lean and ripped faster.

Let me take you on your first date with a HIIT cardio workout that will surely take you outside of your comfort zone.
