    I did a test for my V02 max and after it my trainer brought out a workout which is really tough believe me.I just wanted to share it with you.It's really short (10 minutes) but you'll feel it like an eternity.
    i just wanted to share it with you because I see lots of you are looking for ways to spice up their treadmill workouts.

    The workout:
    run for 2 minutes at 13.04 mph or 21 km/h
    run for 2 minutes at 6.2 mph or 10 km/h
    run for 2 minutes at 13.04 mph or 21 km/h
    run for 2 minutes at 6.2 mph or 10 km/h
    run for 1 minute at 13.04 mph or 21 km/h
    run for 1 minute at 6.2 mph or 10 km/h


    Have Fun

    Nice. Now do it 3 or 4 times in a row, with 5-10 minutes of rest in between sets, and you'll see some improvement.

    13mph on a treadmill is FAST..i dont know what kind of treadmil you guys are using but damn LOL and im 6ft tall and pretty decently fast compared to others on most sports teams i've been on.
    I would up it to 3min rounds and 1minute STANDING rest though ;)
    I just started doing that and the stopping completely part is HELL on the legs but it simulates fight rounds better if you ask me.
