Have you joined in on any of our other Get Healthy U TV Pyramid styled strength workouts? Power up and become more energized and more fit with this powerful pyramid run workout! This workout is an interval-based workout and we call it a Pyramid Workout for a reason!

We will do a total of 7 rounds, making our way up to the top of the pyramid. When we get to the top of the pyramid, this will be the longest interval of work. We will start with block one – 30 seconds of running. Then we will take our speed down and jog (or walk, you get to decide) for 30 seconds.

Block two will be 1 minute of running without changing your speed and then we will take our speed back down to a jog/ walk for 30 seconds. As our working time interval gets longer, our recovery time of 30 seconds will always remain the same.

This pyramid workout is tough, but it’s one of the most effective styles for a reason. The work will sneak up on you, but as you progress through the pyramid it will have you breathing heavy and pushing your cardiovascular health!

What To Expect In This Workout:

  • – 3-4 Minute Warm-Up
  • – Run Up the Pyramid
  • – Hit the Top of the Pyramid/ Max Effort
  • – Run Down the Pyramid
  • – Cool Down

Your longest working interval, or the top of the pyramid, will be a total of 3 minutes of running! YES U CAN! The challenge during this interval is to not touch your speed and to run on feeling for the entire time. Once you’ve completed this interval, you have made it over the hump and you will begin to shave off time from your working interval. Making our way back down to a 30 second run, which will feel so much shorter than your 3 minute interval.

While this pyramid treadmill workout is going to feel completely different than any other Get Healthy U TV Strength Pyramid, this workout is going to push your fitness level more than ever before. Trainer Sam Cam has you covered and will hold you accountable to the time intervals. She will be completing this workout right alongside you, so stay positive and let’s do it together! You get to choose your speed, and as always, feel free to change your speed or make modifications when needed!

To cool down after this workout, we would suggest heading over to our Tread and Shred 10-Minute Cool Down Run! If you can manage to spend another 10 minutes on the tread, we encourage you to properly slow down your legs rather than just hopping off the tread. Remember, your warm-up and your cool-down are just as important as the 30-minute pyramid run that you just completed!
