Check out my video here: http://instagram.com/p/jzFl3pgHHc/  and learn how to do this treadmill plyo metric routine. 

I always found it a little odd seeing numbers of people on a "hamster wheel" in the gym. We move forwards and run on a device just like a hamster. I do it too.
It's time to make the treadmill a bit more fun and put it to different uses. 

I started playing around and figured out some ways to hit your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and calves all while getting your heart rate up with cardio 

(Please start slow and hold on to railings when you first start. If you are still a beginner in the gym I would hold off on this routine)


Phase 1. (Beginning of video)
- turn the treadmill to 1.0mph 
- turn your body to the left so you have to side step to stay moving on the treadmill
- start to squat. Step your right door forward in to a squat then bring your left food together after the squat, and repeat.
- perform this exercise for 30-60 seconds then try it facing the right side.

Phase 2 (second or middle part of video) 
- turn the treadmill up to 1.5mph
- turn your body to the left so you have to side step to stay moving on the treadmill
- start to squat. Step by JUMPING your right door forward in to a squat then JUMP your left food together after the squat, and repeat. 
- perform this exercise for 30-60 seconds then try it facing the right side.

Phase 3
 -turn the treadmill up to 1.5mph
- start with your feet on the plastic platforms on the sides on the treadmill in a squat position 
- start a squat jump towards the treadmill. Land in a squat with both feet on the treadmill, and explosively jump back to the sides and repeat. 
- perform this exercise for 30-60 seconds .
