The ABCs of the 12-3-30 workout, is it just a fad?

This method has recently become viral. But what is it? Here's the ABCs of the 12-3-30 workout.

How to do the 12-3-30 workout

The 12-3-30 workout is technically a walking method that is said to promote longevity and wellness. 

How to do the 12-3-30 workout

The idea is to walk on the treadmill at 12% incline, 3 miles per hour, for 30 minutes -as simple as that. For some, this could be something simple to achieve, for others, like me, not so much.

What are the benefits?

The benefits are similar to those you'd get if you walked from 10 or 20,000 steps a day. But the added benefit is the incline because walking up a hill is a great cardio workout and it adds has some resistance. Resistance and strength training are great to promote longevity. 

Whenever possible, try walking outdoors with 12 resistance exercises or going for a 30-minute walk uphill. 

The bottom line

Any exercise is better than none, and while the type of routine you follow has a lot to do with your state of fitness and, well, the amount of time you can set aside to work out. So, would I say this is the key workout? Well, it's just another routine.
