How To Get The Best Workout From Your Treadmill

Treadmills are the number-one selling piece of exercise equipment sold on the market today. People who want to get in a workout at home, but who may have limited space for a home gym, are likely to choose a treadmill over any other piece of equipment available.

However, if not used creatively, treadmills quickly can become boring, and end up collecting dust in the corner while being used to store dirty laundry and other assorted items.

Treadmills need not be boring, and they can provide very intense or very gentle workouts, depending on your fitness goals. Let’s discuss a few ways you can maximize the use of your treadmill to help reach your personal fitness goals faster.

For those who are short on time, an intense workout on the treadmill is the best way to get a good workout in for the amount of time you have to spare. In just 20 minutes, a quality workout can be achieved simply by varying the speed at which you walk or run, in combination with increasing the incline of the treadmill.

Begin the workout at a casual pace of around 3 miles per hour, at an incline of zero or one. Walk or run at this pace and incline for three to five minutes in order to fully warm up. Then increase your speed to 4 mph and the incline to level two. Walk or run at this pace for only a minute before increasing the incline to level four. Walk/run at this incline for a minute before increasing to an incline of 6. Repeat and then increase to an incline of level seven. Then increase your speed to roughly 5 mph and reduce the incline to level one. Repeat this cycle for 20 minutes to complete the workout.

For those who wish to firm up their buns and thighs while getting in a little cardiovascular exercise as well, there is a routine that can be performed on the treadmill that will help accomplish this fitness goal. It was designed by Diana Maitland, a personal trainer in the New York City area.

Starting at a speed of 4 mph and an incline of 3.5, run or walk for a total of five minutes. Then increase the incline to level eight or 10, and walk or run at that interval for two minutes. The next phase is to decrease incline to between four and six and walk/run at that interval for one minute. The remainder of the interval includes:

  • Incline of 10, with mph set to four for two minutes
  • Incline of 7, with mph set to four, for one minute
  • Incline of 12, with mph set to four, for two minutes
  • Incline of 10, with mph set to four, for one minute
  • Incline of 12, with mph set to four, for one minute
  • Incline of 4, with mph set to four, for five minutes

By varying the incline in rapid intervals, the exerciser can expect to burn roughly 150 calories in just 20 minutes, while firming up their lower body at the same time.

If neither of these workouts are suited to your goals, do a quick web search to find one that is perfect for your fitness needs.
