Here’s what 12-3-30 formula is
  • Get your treadmill incline on 12
  • Set the speed at 4.8 km/hour (5 km is also fine)
  • Walk for 30 minutes


This easy-peasy weight loss exercise has been designed by the internationally- acclaimed lifestyle influencer Lauren Giraldo. The routine went viral, when Giralo confessed that this simple routine helped her lose weight like crazy.

In fact, Mumbai based fitness expert Ruchika Rai has a piece of advice. She says if you really want to lose weight, you must jog or walk for a long period of time. She said, “Running or sprinting is for gaining more muscles and less for weight loss.”

Here’s how beneficial 12-3-30 mantra is

Of course, apart from weight loss, this technique has many more benefits:

1. It will lead to less wear and tear: This is because the speed is not on the higher side. There is no intensity applied while walking, therefore even your joints are absolutely safe.

2. It helps in stretching your lower body: When you’re in an inclined position, the position is such that all your leg muscles will feel the maximum stretch. That’s what the 12-3-30 mantra does for you. So basically, from your glutes to calves, all your major muscles are sorted.


Keep an idea of your risk of weight-related issues.

3. You sweat and burn more: As your body is in constant motion or let’s say in constant slow motion for 30 minutes, more heat is produced as there is no break. That means more fat burn.

4. Even elderly can try it out: The range of motion is such that if the elderly want to try this exercise out, they can also give it a shot after consulting their doctors.

Apart from that, increased sweating will also help you get glowing skin.

Although, there are no major drawbacks of doing this technique, steer clear if you suffer from any leg or knee injuries.
