I have been hard at work in college and studying.
Let's talk about the treadmill today.
There is a lot of speculation on how fast to run or jog, whether to walk, run, or jog, how to lose weight and so forth.
1. Walk, Jog, or Run
This is a tricky subject because there are a lot of factors to figure in.
I mean, if you are 100-200 pounds overweight, chances are, you aren't going to be running.
I would walk if you are someone that has a weaker build and then move up to jogging and running.
If you have a medium to large build start with jogging and move up to the running.
If you are obese and really want to burn the pounds, then I would suggest higher inclines and faster running.
The other factor to consider here is, "How many calories do you want to burn?"
The more calories burnt the more weight you lose.
Walking isn't going to help you lose weight.
Jogging would be a good start, but in the long run faster running and inclines are going to help you.
2. The Trick About Inclines
There is a happy medium about inclines that is something that you don't need to cross.
Your heart rate will jump the second you begin to jog or run on inclines.
Monitor your heart rate and make sure that it isn't too high.
I work out at running 5 m.p.h. and 5-6% incline.
This burns fat like crazy without my heart rate going to high.
3. Treadmill Trounce
Trounce on that treadmill when you workout.
So many people go to the gym just to mess around with the opposite sex.
Get up on that treadmill, plug the earbuds in, and RUN!
Quit playing games if you want that beach body, get up off your rear end, and get going.
Jogging or running with weights in your hands gives you an extra fat burn and builds your upper body.
Make sure you have a great pair of shoes before you run.
Don't forget to do your stretches, both before and after your run.
Enjoy working out and losing that weight on the treadmill!
Go from treadmill to dreadmill.
That is how winners are made, by doing work!
