If you are one of the people who does not like running outside for various issues like safety and weather but still loves to run, Treadmill is the most interesting thing for you. And in fact, Treadmill is any way the hot-cake in the gym. It gives you all the benefits of running, without actually running on the ground. Increases your heart bits per minute and activates all the muscles. But too much of Treadmill is a threat to your knee joints, so you need to find the perfect balance. Let’s find out how.
Warm up your body
You can not expect your body to start working out on a treadmill just after getting on it. You should start at a slow pace and maintain that for a couple of minutes, as it allows your body joints and muscle to warm up and get ready for the workout. In this way, you can avoid any type of sudden cramps in muscle.
Don’t cling onto the handrail
People often make the mistake of holding onto the handrail while running or walking on the treadmill. But there is no need for it. The handrail is there just to get onto the machine and get off purpose. While running you should free your body in such posture that you are actually running on the ground.
A little incline is fun
You can use 2% to 4% incline to add up the fun. Actually, while you are running indoor on the treadmill, there is no wind resistance so it gets a little easier to run. Whereas the little incline makes it a bit steep, which is a good challenge to keep up to.
