When I train on the treadmill, I want to maximize my time on it. There are a few mistakes to avoid, and you can avoid them using a few simple techniques.
Don’t run in place. Ever. Run in place is bad for you. It increases your risk of injury and decreases your overall workout efficiency. Instead, just run normally at a steady pace.
Too Many Distractions
During the day when the sun is at its hottest, it’s a good idea to run outside. This will allow you to maximize your training because you will get the most out of your calories.
However, this is also the time you need to be especially careful not to overdo it. Running in the heat makes your body work harder than normal. Your heart has to beat much faster to deliver the oxygen your muscles need to function at their best.
Don’t use the incline
Increasing the incline is the easiest way to get a great workout on the treadmill. This makes you work harder, which increases your heart rate and makes your body sweat. On the other hand, going easy makes you tired and unfulfilled.
Leaning on or holding on
It’s possible to use the exercise bike for up to 20 minutes without getting tired. It will become difficult to continue riding the bike after that, because your muscles will start to get tight. If you feel the need to stop pedaling at that point, simply reduce the resistance or speed until you no longer need to hold on to the handles.
Always Do the Same Routines
Doing the same routine on the treadmill is not only boring, it can eventually be ineffective after a while. Try changing from time to time with intervals or by increasing the intensity.
To stay focused, you’ve got to fundamentals and if you’re getting bored, refocus on visualization: visualize the muscles contracting as you move them, imagine pushing yourself off the wall in front of you and running like a’superman’ through landscapes beautiful…Use your mind in short!
