If you are up to date on social media you will notice that many trends come and go. Nothing is exempt from becoming a trend, even a workout routine.
Although a lot of trends get a bad rep, sometimes there are helpful hidden gyms that can be life-changing. The new 12-3-30 workout is the new trend on the popular and youthful TikTok app.
Originally this workout was started by Youtuber Lauren Giraldo in 2019. Giraldo claims that she wanted to create a sustainable workout routine. Many active people may feel as though weight lifting is a little intimidating.
This workout only involves a treadmill, and with a little trial and error, Giraldo was able to develop the 12-3-30 workout routine. 2 years after being created the workout has hit TikTok and grew legs of its own.
More Than a Fad
Although the idea of this workout is fairly simple, it’s not easy. All you have to do is set the treadmill to a 12 percent incline with the speed at 3.0 and the rest is up to your legs for 30 minutes.
This particular workout finds the middle ground between being extremely difficult, but not to a point where it isn’t sustainable for a long period.
The treadmill settings for this workout forces your body to push your body weight to its limits, all while sustaining a speed that most are capable of doing. This workout is great for building endurance in long-distance runners.
This workout is great for advanced athletes and even beginners. This mix between strength building and cardio can be the start of a new weight loss journey for many.
