Tips for the treadmill

A balanced physical activity is essential to keep fit, stay healthy, strengthen the immune system and even have fun.

The treadmill is the best strategy for those who want to train, but do not have much time and need a ready-to-use solution: however, once you have purchased a treadmill, how do you organize a good workout ?

The first step, as with everything, is to establish a goal to achieve: lose weight, tone up, increase endurance … and try to have a minimum of regularity in training.

How to train with the treadmill

First, pay attention to your posture to avoid possible pain or injury

To replicate walking on the outside ground it is good to set a slope ranging from 1 to 2%.
These are the technical aspects to keep in mind:

  • bust slightly forward;
  • loose arms and shoulders
  • support the whole foot , especially if the speed is not very high;
  • pay attention to the movement of the knees.
  • Lose weight on the treadmill

If your goal is to lose weight, you need to check your heart rate (60-70% of your maximum rate) and set up a training schedule that includes progressively longer sessions and not too fast .

To lose weight effectively and lastingly, it is necessary to increase the basal metabolism and therefore strengthen the muscles and lean mass, toning the muscles .
All this must be accompanied by a healthy and balanced diet to have more lasting and safe results over time : losing weight is a goal that is achieved gradually and progressively so as not to frustrate all the efforts made.
