Treadmill Workout Tip

A treadmill offers a great way for anyone to workout at home. But there are some tricks you need to know to help you make the most of your workout…

When outdoors, runners are often battling against the wind. Even a slight breeze can offer a certain amount of resistance and this forces you to run a little bit harder. When running indoors you do not have this, so you need to find other ways to challenge yourself. The incline you run on is a great way to add resistance to your treadmill workout. Set it to 1 or 2% and you will start battling against gravity, which ultimately forces your muscles to work harder.

You could also try alternatinge between incline and speed. Set and incline and run slower, then reduce it back to flat and run faster. Doing this during one workout can really boost your results.
