Hi, I'm Chrisie Allemand, coming to you from BB3 Personal Training Center in Weston Florida. Today, we're going to discuss how you can increase your glut muscles on a treadmill. Now, walking on a treadmill or jogging on a treadmill does send a workload on your gluts directly. But, to increase the workload, you want a hike upper inline. The higher the better, the more intense on your gluts. The longer your stride, the more emphasis on your gluts and your hamstrings as well. Second way to increase your glut activity on a treadmill is sprinting, my favorite. Do this on about a one percent incline, go at it for 20 to 30 seconds and then walk for a minute and a half to two minutes and then repeat. Twenty-five, 20 to 25 minutes like that and your gluts will be firing for sure. So, some people prefer a stair mill or a stepper over a treadmill to help fire their gluts. But, if you increase your incline, like I am right now on it, this is an incline of 15 percent, you can also target those trouble to get areas like your gluts and your hamstrings. What you want to do is stand up tall, increase the distance between your rib cage and your pelvis and push to the heels. Really use your arms, don't hold on. Don't let that machine do the work for you. You go out there and do it yourself. I really hope this video has been helpful to you. Check with your trainer to make sure these exercises are right for you. Well, that's all guys. I'm Chrisie, thanks for watching. Happy training!
