The Lizzo Treadmill Workout That's Going Viral On TikTok

Lizzo has hopped on yet another viral TikTok trend, but this time she's working out and listening to a playlist of her own songs. Dubbed the "Lizzo Treadmill Strut," the workout involves walking on the treadmill to the beat and pace of the Grammy-award-winning artist's most popular songs (via PopSugar). In the TikTok video, Lizzo power walks to a select playlist of her songs, starting with her new single "About Damn Time." The goal of the workout is to increase your speed by 0.1 miles per hour with every song until you finally reach a pace where you're jogging.

After strutting to her latest hit song on the TikTok clip, she increases her speed to her song "Tempo" and continues this pattern as she picks up the pace to "Exactly How I Feel," followed by "Juice," "Fitness," and "Rumors," etc. Throughout the workout, Lizzo struts with attitude, walking faster and faster until she's running. Ending with "Good as Hell," Lizzo dances along to the song and smiles at the camera, superimposing the words, "I did it. I feel great, 30 min start to an amazing day!"

Does the Lizzo Treadmill Strut work?

The viral trend was originally created by TikTok user Allie Bennett, who has made several "strut" workout videos, in which she power walks along to playlists of popular artists' songs, including Harry Styles, Doja Cat, and Taylor Swift (via Shape). Bennett starts the workout off at a speed of 3.4 miles per hour and gradually increases her speed to 7 miles per hour, ending the workout with a 3.2 mile per hour cool-down song, all within a span of 30 minutes. Nevertheless, she encourages her followers to stick to a pace that is most comfortable for them.

In Lizzo's video, the singer begins her treadmill strut walking at 2.5 miles per hour and ends it jogging at a pace of 3.6 miles per hour. No matter what pace you choose to walk or jog at, experts agree that 30 minutes of cardio a day is a great way to improve and maintain your health. "If you don't usually work out, walking is fantastic for baseline human health, burning calories, building bone density, and improving circulation," registered dietitian and co-founder of SoHo Strength Lab, Promix Nutrition, and ARENA, Albert Matheny, told Shape.
