Running, 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 running outside. A 150 lb person will burn over 450 calories running 8 miles per hour for 30 minutes. Maintain proper posture as you run, and only hold onto the handles when necessary, such as when dismounting or checking your heart rate.

Jun 13, 2015 8:38 AM: 2 minute warm up at speed of 4.0 - 4.5
Ramp Speeds 5, 6, 7, 8; 5, 5, 6, 7; 5, 6, 7, 7; 5, 5, 6, 7 My Goal is to get ramps to 7, 8, 9, 10, but when my heart rate exceeds 180 bpm, I back off - don't want to over do it in the beginning.
I'm just starting... but I'm getting there.
Cool...+See More

Jun 2, 2015 2:06 PM: Isn't 4 minutes rest between sets a bit excessive for 30 seconds of exercise?

Mar 28, 2015 10:06 PM: I like to do about 30 min on the elliptical. It gives little to no impact on the joints, and the resistance adjustment is fantastic.
