The original Brazilian Butt Lift treadmill workout is for runners so I know a lot of walkers who would like to try this workout. So you know me, I had to develop one just for you guys. I tested it out on my clients to see what I needed to change or add to the workout.
First, there are two beginner levels, level one's speed is from 2.0 to 2.5 mph and level 2 goes from 2.5 to 3.0 mph. What I found to be very important, I don't want you holding on to the rails of the treadmill, that is cheating. However if it is a matter of balance, of course, please hold on, I don't want you falling off the treadmill. If you find yourself not being able to get through the program, you will need to decrease your speed.
If your treadmill's maximum incline is only 10%, this program's highest incline is 12%, make that your maximum incline and decrease the two highest incline positions by two levels.
Walking on an incline, especially inclines over 10%, activates and strengthens the muscles in the calf, hamstrings and glutes. For those looking for a lift to the derriere, this is a program for you.
Next week, I will post the workout for intermediate and advance walkers. Do you walk or run on an incline and on what level?
