I did the 12-3-30 treadmill workout for a month here’s my results – Tom’s Guide

As a runner, I usually don't seek inspiration from TikTok, but the viral 12-3-30 treadmill workout reeled me in. This workout, popularized by former actress and social media influencer Lauren Giraldo, has garnered millions of shares on TikTok. But what exactly is the 12-3-30 treadmill workout, what are its benefits, and what happens if I try it every day for a week?

Giraldo explains, "I used to feel intimidated by the gym, but now I have this one routine that makes me feel good about myself." For those seeking a cardio alternative to running, Giraldo has supposedly found it.

The 12-3-30 workout entails walking at an incline, a method proven to offer benefits such as weight loss (Giraldo attributes her 30-pound weight loss to this routine). The idea is that by walking at an incline, you'll burn more calories and engage your core, glutes, hamstrings, and calves more intensely. Compared to running, power walking has a lower impact, making it ideal for anyone recovering from injuries or experiencing hip, knee, or ankle discomfort.

For those seeking further walking inspiration, you can explore everything about walking for weight loss and its effects on the body when walking 30 minutes daily. Alternatively, you can continue reading for a detailed breakdown of the full workout.

Dont panic, its much, much easier than it sounds. There's no firm guidance on whether or not to hold on to the bars of the treadmill. Giraldo says she holds the bars about 30% of the time and goes hands-free the other 70%.

To follow this treadmill workout, you simply:

To caveat, I first tried this workout and wrote about it for Tom's Guide when I was ten days away from running my fourth marathon. Being in a taper, I was paranoid about pulling my calves walking up hill, so I've revisited this workout recently to give it a proper try over the course of a month read on to find out what happened.

Upgrade your life with a daily dose of the biggest tech news, lifestyle hacks and our curated analysis. Be the first to know about cutting-edge gadgets and the hottest deals.

During this month, I did the 12-3-30 workout three times a week, in place of my running workouts.

The first thing that struck me when I set up this treadmill was that 12% is pretty high. Were talking about hiking up a steep hill for 30 minutes, not the gentle stroll in the park Id expected when setting out to test this workout. Id suggest that those not used to walking or running regularly might start a little lower, as it was a bit of a shock to the system for the first few minutes.

Over the month, I definitely got used to walking at this incline, but I could feel it down the back of my legs for the first few walks. I can see how doing this several times a week would increase your fitness levels. I definitely felt my calves working harder than they would on a treadmill run.

That said, due to the tough incline, if you do suffer from upper or lower back pain, you should be careful, as it can put more pressure on your spine.

The first few times I tried this workout, I found myself staring at the ticking clock on the treadmill, willing it to go faster. Again, 30 minutes is on the longer side of a workout for beginners. Giraldo herself said it took her a while to build up to walking for the full 30-minutes and had to take breaks when she first started, so dont be afraid to lower the incline, or press pause on the treadmill should you need.

After a month, I'd gotten used to my strolls up hill on the treadmill, but I really missed running outside. I definitely prefer to exercise outdoors, and as much as I enjoyed the challenge of the 12-3-30 workout, I struggled with boredom strolling on the treadmill.

As mentioned, the first time I did this workout I was a few days out from running 26.2 miles, and I noticed about 20 minutes in that I was working muscles I wasn't used to targeting. Doing the workout every day for a week, my hips and calves really felt the effects of hiking up a hill, even if that hill was in a gym. After a week, I could also feel that Id really worked my glutes and my hamstrings, which are areas runners often neglect, so this would be a great form of cross-training a couple of times a week.

On most days, I hiked around 948 feet over 30 minutes. On some days, I continued walking until I'd hit 1000 feet. While Ill definitely stick to running outside as my exercise of choice, this was a brilliant, low-impact way to get my heart rate up.

Like all good workouts, this one is easy to adapt should you need to you can easily break up the workout with minute breaks where you lower the incline, build up to walking at 12% over a number of weeks, or reduce the speed of the treadmill as you get fitter.

Alternatively, as you get fitter, you can speed the belt of the treadmill up, walk at a steeper incline, or like I did, challenge yourself to hike up a little higher each session.

Of course, no workout is 100% injury-proof, but are there any risks associated with the 12-3-30 workout, and is it better than other forms of cardio? In a word, no. While walking at incline definitely targets different muscles to when walking on the flat, there are plenty of other forms of cardio that will work you just as hard.

The workout isn't without drawbacks either, walking at an incline can put more pressure on your lower back, so it's a good idea to pair this with these back strengthening exercises. You'll also be working your hamstrings and calves harder when walking at an incline, so it's a good idea to ensure you've done a proper warm-up before jumping on the treadmill and increasing the incline.

According to her TikTok, Giraldo does this workout five times a week and while Id say thats probably a little much for most gym-goers, its definitely a great treadmill workout to try if youre not keen on running.

Like all forms of exercise, it's a good idea to mix the 12-3-30 workout up with strength training, stretching, and other forms of cardio to work the entire body, and keep you from getting bored.

Sizzling style! Anittas fabulous fashion sense is just as extraordinary as her songs. The Brazilian singer whose real name is Larissa de Macedo Machado first rose to fame in 2013 when she dropped her hit song Show das Poderosas. She charmed fans with catchy lyrics, her stellar voice and sexy style on the []

Anitta says that she feels the strongest when shes on stage performing for her fans. While she gets a lot of energy and adrenaline from her shows, she acknowledges that she also has to listen to what her body needs and keep it sustained.

Ive realized that when I focus on my nutrition and remember to hydrate and rehydrate, I have more energy to do everything I am asking my body to do, she tells Us. Whether its performing, working out or just getting through my busy day.

When looking to stay hydrated, Anittas go-to beverage is BODYARMORs Flash I.V. The sports drink is full of electrolytes and has vitamins to help support a healthy immune system.

To respect my bodys needs, I like to make sure Im properly hydrated. Its the main thing for me, she says. BODYARMOR Flash I.V. is very helpful with that. Its my secret weapon to keep my wellness on point during such busy and physically demanding days.

Anitta acknowledges shes human and shes not always going to be perfect when it comes to fitness and wellness routines. But if she gets off track, she knows theres always room for improvement and she uses her passion to keep her focused.

I think itll always be a work in progress, you know? But music helped me to be in this state of confidence Im in right now, she tells Us. Anitta is this supergirl that helped Larissa get through life fearlessly.

You have successfully subscribed.

She also encourages her fans to also remember to be gentle with themselves no matter what skin theyre in.

Allow yourself to have fun with fashion, beauty and wellness, she says. Achieving body confidence is about embracing and caring for the skin youre in.

A Maine woman | From adversity to aspiration – NewsCenterMaine.com WCSH-WLBZ

Shelby Stevens from South Paris is a contender for the title of Ms. Health and Fitness in the "Muscle and Fitness Hers" magazine.

PARIS, Maine A typical day for Shelby Stevens begins at the gym, where her routine is a testament to her perseverance.

"The cool thing about weightlifting is you don't have to have coordination or balance if you choose the right exercises," Stevens said, chalking her hands as she prepared for her workout.

Shelby's story is one of extraordinary courage.

Diagnosed with a brain tumor at 4 years old, she faced a daunting path ahead.

The tumor left her with poor balance and coordination, but it never dampened her spirit.

Over the years, Shelby transitioned from a wheelchair to walking on her own, though the journey was fraught with physical challenges.

"I continue to struggle with anything athletic," she said. "It was very frustrating, because I am a hard worker. But if you don't have basic abilities, there are limits to what you can do."

At 16 years old, Shelby discovered weightlifting, a sport that allowed her to overcome some of these limitations and find a sense of accomplishment and pride.

"They think I'm good at something because I am good. It was really encouraging," Stevens said.

Now, Shelby is a contender for the title of Ms. Health and Fitness in the"Muscle and Fitness Hers" magazine. Her progress in the competition is a testament to her hard work and determination.

"Right now, I've made the top 15, and then it's going to top 10 in the next week," Stevens said.

To advance further in the competition, Shelby needs the public's votes.

Each vote brings her closer to sharing her inspiring story with a broader audience. Regardless of the outcome, Shelby remains steadfast in her mission to inspire others.

"The worst thing is not failing; it's not trying and never knowing if you could have succeeded," she said.

If you would like to support Shelby and help her share her message of hope and strength, you can vote for her here.

Month-long Garmin Venu bug represents a worrying trend across fitness watches – Android Central

What you need to know

Fitness watches get more post-launch updates than they used to. In theory, this is a good thing. In practice, brands like Garmin and Fitbit are struggling to keep up with their ambitious goals.

Earlier this week, a reader alerted me to an "aggravating" issue with the Venu Sq 2, one of our favorite Garmin watches. For the past month, no one with the Sq 2 or Music edition could connect to Connect IQ. That meant no Spotify, Komoot, new watch faces, or any other third-party apps. Weeks after the issue arose, Garmin Support opened a ticket, then went radio silent, frustrating forum users who began threatening to return their Venus.

Then, shortly after sites like Notebook Check began reporting on the issue, Garmin engineers "fixed an error in the backend" that had prevented Venu Sq 2 watches and the Garmin servers from communicating. Users agreed that the issue had been fixed without any update on their end; some asked what the holdup had been before the thread was closed.

The Venu Sq 2 is a kind of gateway product for Garmin. Its relatively affordable price and lightweight squircle design make it an easier transition for Apple Watch users or fans of other cheap fitness watches, who might find other Garmins too rugged, expensive, or niche. So for new Venu Sq 2 owners especially those that paid $50 extra for music storage to lack access to apps for over a month is a big deal.

Garmin has also faced complaints in the past couple of months about a Garmin Forerunner update with an accidental side effect: it allegedly caused watches' optical HR sensors to underestimate heart rate data significantly.

In my case, I'll notice during hard track runs with my Forerunner 965 that my heart rate is about 3040 bpm too low for a lap or so before it autocorrects. Otherwise, it performed very well in a Garmin vs. Coros vs. Polar test for heart rate, but unfortunately, other users still report unresolved issues with high or low HR more regularly, even months later.

While these longstanding issues don't look great for Garmin, I'll note that buggy software updates with inadvertent consequences seem to be a worrying trend with fitness watches and trackers recently.

I immediately remembered the Fitbit Charge 5 fiasco earlier this year: Fitbit updated the Charge 5 with new clock faces and languages, with the unintended side effect of overworking the Charge 5 battery to the point that users reported the 7-day fitness tracker could only last half a day at most. A month later, tech sites caught wind of the issue; Fitbit said the update wasn't to blame without explaining why Charge 5 trackers broke after factory resets or could no longer track sleep.

I'm not certain if this problem was ever resolved. At the time, Google gave users 50% discounts for a Charge 6 replacement, but many long-time Fitbit fans swore off the brand for good.

While I positively reviewed the Polar Vantage V3, it too had a rough start. My review unit would crash during any long hiking or running activity, causing a boot loop that would only end when the battery ran out or I found a way to factory reset it. Other reviewers and day-one buyers reported similar issues.

The latest firmware updates did nothing to resolve the problem, so Polar sent me a new watch. This unit never crashed once in the month or so I used it. The fact remains, however, that Polar couldn't find a way to resolve this major software issue remotely. Then it delayed its Polar Grit X2 Pro launch to take more time resolving firmware issues.

No matter which fitness brand you prefer, you're more likely to run into serious software issues these days. I suspect there's one clear culprit: ambition.

We're seeing a trend today where fitness watches are trying to become smartwatches to compete with mainline smartwatches. Because of that, brands like Garmin and Fitbit are dedicating more effort to post-launch updates to keep their watches relevant for years just as a Galaxy or Apple Watch gets three or four years of feature updates and support.

Mainline smartwatches also have more powerful CPUs, more resources, and fewer models. If Samsung wants to test a new Wear OS 5 feature, it must check the Galaxy Watch 4, 5, 5 Pro, and 6. That's not unreasonable for such a massive company.

Garmin sells dozens of watches at any given moment. Even if they share the same general software and UI, a $1,000 Fenix has more powerful capabilities than a $250 Venu Sq 2. So, each watch gets its own updates and (presumably) requires its own QA testing with every new feature update.

Most other fitness brands take a similar multi-device approach. Amazfit sells about 20 smartwatches, not counting its older models, which still receive support. Google and Fitbit have about 10 products combined. COROS only has four watches but still updates watches released years ago with brand-new software like turn-by-turn navigation.

With so many watches on the market at once, made by brands with smaller teams, bugs are bound to slip through the cracks.

Garmin's forums are full of bug reports; some are specific to one broken watch, and others are down to user error. So when a real, widespread bug shows up, like the Venu Sq 2's app block or the Forerunners' HR inaccuracies, the support team will respond with canned advice until enough people yell about it for them to escalate the issue. And even then, it may take time to find a proper solution.

Again, this isn't about Garmin specifically. Other brands might have taken longer to acknowledge the problem, or fail to pin down the problem's cause. It's about the fact that these brands used to launch a product and then move on to the next one, rarely adding more than a few new features after launch. That made it easier to avoid bugs.

Now that users expect proper post-launch software updates for fitness watches, these brands have to squeeze features onto chips that were optimized at launch for as much battery life as possible. In some cases, that's likely to cause problems, and athletes with a previously functional watch have to spend weeks waiting for a solution.And with so many watches on the market, you never know if yours will slip through the cracks.

TikToker Remi Bader Shows Off Fitness Progress After Quitting Ozempic – TooFab

Remi Bader is showing off her hard work after putting her mental health first.

The 29-year-old content creator took to Instagram to share a video of her progress after a few months at the gym, this after she revealed earlier this year she used Ozempic but had since stopped.

In the first clip, she appears to struggle doing a core exercise, before shaking her head and then giving up. However, the second clip shows her completing the task at hand.

"The difference of a few months focusing on my mental, emotional and physical strength," Bader wrote over the reel.

"This is not about weight, or looks or appearance, it's about putting myself first and finding myself again. Always put yourself first," she continued.

"People come and go so remember you only have YOU at the end of the day thank you to those always supporting me through my darkest and brightest moments," she added in the caption.

The video comes after the body positivity model revealed she quit using the weight-loss drug Ozempic, which she said she was prescribed to for being pre-diabetic and insulin resistant.

During a January 2023 episode of the Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast, Bader revealed she stopped using the drug due to negative side effects on her overall health.

"It was brand new, just got FDA approved, no one knew about it and I was so scared," Bader recalled. "They said I need this. And I had a lot of mixed feelings."

She then explained how she chose to pause the drug after a few months and then fell into a cycle of "bad binging" and put on "double the weight" she had initially lost from using it.

"I saw a doctor, and they were like, 'It's 100 percent because you went on Ozempic,'" she said.

"It was making me think I wasn't hungry for so long. I lost some weight. I didn't want to be obsessed with being on it long term. I was like, 'I bet the second I got off I'm going to get starving again.' I did, and my binging got so much worse."

Bader has been open about her struggles with binge eating. In September 2023, the influencer posted a TikTok video explaining that she had an emotional day so she "answered that with eating, eating, eating, eating."

She also spoke about the subject of binge eating on the podcast High Low with Emily Ratajkowski, comparing binge eating to an addiction.
