Treadmills are on of the most useful weight loss tools, if you use them right. Follow these steps in order to get the most calorie and fat burn on your treadmill workout.
In order to burn fat on a treadmill, you need to push yourself. While strolling along at a leisurely pace on a treadmill is better than nothing, you can burn many more calories if you bump up the intensity. Increase your baseline to a speed that is comfortable to walk at but that makes it a little harder to hold up a conversation; roughly a 5/10 in difficulty.
Now, you need to choose an interval mode that you can switch to that makes your treadmill workout more intense. If you cant run, increase the incline on your treadmill. If you can, add a jogging interval.
Switch back and forth between your regular and increased treadmill levels; 4 minutes at a regular pace (5/10), and then 2 minutes with the treadmill speed faster (8/10 difficulty), or at an incline; whichever you can handle.
Set a treadmill goal of a certain amount of time or miles to cover. Use your treadmill everyday to meet these goals and your fat weight will drop, and your body will start to become toned.
