Hill runs burn more calories and increase endurance

Did you know that hill runs and repeats – running as fast as you can up a hill and then jogging slowly back down to recover – increases your calorie burn by up to 50 percent? Your downhill jog also engages your lower abs and works your quads.

So the next time you go out for a run or training session, find a hill and do a set of hill runs (fast run up, slow jog down) and you’ll burn more calories, engage more muscle groups AND increase your endurance (after a few weeks of hill training, the next time you run your regular route, you’ll be amazed at how easy it’s become).
