Jogging-Treadmill Guide

Main Muscle: Quadriceps

  1. To begin, step onto the treadmill and select the desired option from the menu. Most treadmills have a manual setting, or you can select a program to run. Typically, you can enter your age and weight to estimate the amount of calories burned during exercise. Elevation can be adjusted to change the intensity of the workout.
  2. Treadmills offer convenience, cardiovascular benefits, and usually have less impact than jogging outside. A 150 lb person will burn almost 250 calories jogging for 30 minutes, compared to more than 450 calories running. Maintain proper posture as you jog, and only hold onto the handles when necessary, such as when dismounting or checking your heart rate.

May 27, 2014 9:28 AM: It gets insanely hot here in Arabia, so I have to retreat to the treadmill at times. I prefer a variety setting like cross country or aerobic with lots of peaks and valleys. Good for the heart rate and the quads.

May 27, 2014 9:26 AM: Running outside is more interesting than the treadmill and you can mix things up without wiping out. The weather gets insanely hot where I am (Arabia), so the treadmill is something I have to retreat to.

I like a variety workout, like a cross country or aerobic setting. Good for the heart...+See More
