Some men tend to avoid treadmill workouts because they do not know that treadmill exercises play an important role in their workout routine. These exercises are far from boring and will help you get much better results than you have ever imagined. If you want to look fit and gain muscles effectively, you must not avoid these exercises. Treadmill exercises should become a part of your workout routine if you want to have a strong body. You will lose a lot of weight on the treadmill because while you are running on a treadmill, all of your muscles become active, especially your abdominal muscles and the muscles on your calves. We have prepared a list of the best exercises you can do on the treadmill. Read this article carefully and do not forget to do some of these exercises the next time you hit the gym!
Our first exercise requires a lot of strength and capacity. First of all, press 1 on the incline button and start warming up. Warm up for at least ten minutes. After that, press the incline button again and start running faster. Do this for at least 3 minutes and then press the button again and slow down. This time, start walking instead of running. Do this for about three to five times. You will notice a huge improvement after you do this exercise several times. You will be stronger and your muscle capacity will start to grow. This is the perfect exercise for beginners. If you have just started going to the gym, you must not forget to do this exercise. You should do this exercise in order to warm up at the beginning. You can also do it again before you are leaving. Do not run too fast the second time you do this exercise because your muscles might be tightened and you will only make the situation worse. Rich Agnello, a coach that works at the NJ Track Club, said that this exercise will help you break your limits and it will also help you push your “easy” speed.
The second exercise that we have put on our list is the “progression running” exercise. First of all, start warming up. Do this for about five to ten minutes. After a while, when you will feel ready to start working out a little bit harder, push the incline button at 1% and run at a 5 mph pace. After that, start to increase the speed of the treadmill for about 0.2 mph. Do not give up until you feel like you are too tired to move on. You might feel tired after you finish this exercise, but after a minute or two, you will feel energized and you will be ready to start working out again.
The third exercise on our list requires a bit more strength and muscle capacity. In order to do this exercise properly, you need to warm up for at least fifteen minutes. However, do not warm up for more than twenty minutes because you might overdo it and you will not feel energized to move on. After you have warmed up, increase your running speed as much as you can. Do this for a couple of minutes, but do not overdo it because if you go over the top with it, your muscles will tighten up and you will feel weary and exhausted. We suggest that you do around six rounds of this exercise. If you feel like you are strong enough to do more, do not do more than eight rounds. According to Gaudette, a professional head coach at Runners Connect, this exercise will help you achieve your highest goals when it comes to running. Your running abilities will be improved and your aerobic strength will be at a much higher level than it was before you have started doing this treadmill workout.
The next exercise on our list can be pretty hard for some individuals. If you are a beginner, do not try this exercise until you feel like you are ready to push your limits. To begin with, start warming up on the treadmill. Warm up for about ten minutes. Start doing this exercise by pushing the incline button at 8%. Try to run as fast as possible. Do this for at least half a minute. After that, press the button once more and lower your speed at 5%. Start walking instead of running. Walk for about half a minute and then, increase your speed once more, but this time, make sure that you sprint for about a minute and a half. After that, walk once again. This time, walk a little bit longer (at least 120 seconds). Do at least six rounds of this exercise if you want to achieve fascinating results. If you have enough muscle capacity, you can do about nine rounds of this treadmill workout. Nevertheless, we suggest that you should not overdo it if you do not feel like you are ready because this exercise requires a lot of muscle strength. Gaudette said that this particular exercise is quite helpful for the neuromuscular body system and the anaerobic system.
This treadmill workout is a bit more interesting than the rest of the workouts. You need to have a TV in front of you if you want to try this one out. First, warm up for about ten minutes. After that, wait for a TV commercial and start running as fast as you can. Do this every time a TV commercial starts until you feel like you can’t do it anymore.
The last treadmill exercise on our list requires warming up for about ten minutes. After you feel like you are ready to start running faster, press the incline button and start running at 7mph. You should run at this speed for about one minute. After one minute passes, lower the treadmill speed and walk slowly for one minute. Once again, press the button and increase the treadmill speed to about 7.5 mph. Run for about 60 seconds. Once again, make a short pause and do this until you can’t go any further.None found.
