Hey, this is Madison Chase, and again, I'm with the incomparable, incredible Sandie Tokrin, and today we're going to be talking about how to get a great workout on a treadmill and if it's even possible, do they work, the self-powered treadmills and Sandi and are both going to interject on this. I think depending on your goals you always want to start with your goals. If you are trying to lose weight, if you are trying to burn calories, if you are trying to run a marathon, if you are a bodybuilder. So there are different ways to use a treadmill. You could use it in different directions so Sandi, one of the things that you were talking about was actually going sideways which I think is definitely more for people who are truly advanced and coordinated. Very much coordinated, absolutely. Yeah, so you could talk to actually using the self-powered treadmill going sideways. Okay it's basically sidestepping to whatever side you are going on. If you are obviously going to your right, you are sidestepping to your right. So you bring one leg out, the next leg in, bring one leg out and the other leg in obviously and if you are this fit, this advanced, you could actually add a hop to it where you are kind of sort of, like a side football shuffle, a side football shuffle, yeah, basically like you are jogging, a side football shuffle, absolutely. And a lot of people if you are a bodybuilder and you want to maintain muscle, then I like to do like a really high incline and a slight speed like 3, 5 to maybe 4 max and I'm really getting a good burn. And I like what you said earlier in one of our other segments is that you really press through your heel. So that I could heal my hamstrings, or you could do through your toe to work on your calves. So do self-powered treadmills work? I absolutely think they do, you just have to focus on what your goals are and what you are trying to reach by using a treadmill. Absolutely, I agree, it definitely works depending upon your goals. So, I'm Madison Chase and this is the incomparable, incredible Sandie Tokrin and we just discussed how to use a treadmill, a self-powered treadmill to get an effective workout.
