Here is a quick rundown of some important and effective treadmill workouts which will help you stay fit and healthy, and most importantly, boost your stamina to perform other exercises.
Turn On the Tempo
In case you are an amateur, set the incline to 1 percent and warm up with 10 minutes of easy but stretched running on the treadmill. Later, extend the tempo for 3 to 4 minutes, and walk for 3 to 4 minutes continuously. Do the same at least 3 to 5 times.
Don’t just get driven with the pace and rather take proper intervals after every half mile. After warming up with 15 to 20 minutes of easy and continuous running, run a half-mile at 75 percent of your entire strength. When done,, slow down and jog for around 200 meters. This can be repeated for 6 to 8 times depending upon your stamina.
Progression Run Through
Warming up with 5 to 10 minutes of easy running is very good for the beginners while the time cab be extended to 15 to 20 minutes for the pros. Set the incline at 1 percent and run fast at a 5 miles-per-hour pace. Gradually increase the speed 0.2 mph every minute until you are completely stressed out and exhausted.
A great workout to challenge the anaerobic and neuromuscular system, the workout requires a warm up session with 10 minutes of easy running. Start by setting the incline to 8 percent and sprint as fast as you can for 30 seconds continuously. This is one round so repeat the same for around 6 to 9 times.
