Sledmill Sprints



Here is a super effective and very efficient sprint workout for when you are in the gym but short of time. It is essentially a sled run without the need of a sled… and faster. This workout is so powerful because of the resistance of the treadmill belt paired with an all-out sprinting effort:

Total work time = 100-160 seconds
Total workout time including warm-up = 15-20 mins

WARM-UP:

600m jog on treadmill 
Dynamic stretching (leg kicks, butt flicks, air squats, mountain climbers, etc)

WORK-OUT:

Jump on a treadmill but leave it turned off
Hold the hand grips and sprint as hard as you can for 20-30 seconds

Rest 1-2 mins. 
Repeat 4-7 more times. 
Try not to throw up
