Treadmill routines, types and benefits
Treadmills are a planet. We found many types and routines that will make your workouts considerably more varied than if you just went for a run, not forgetting the benefits of folding treadmills, which will take up virtually no space at home. More and more treadmill enthusiasts are betting on treadmills, so we are going to discover their advantages, the kinds of treadmills and the best routines so that you know how to encourage you to train on the treadmill throughout your training.
Advantages of Treadmills
Undoubtedly, the enormous advantage of treadmills is that we save each and every one of the obstacles in the street, from loose dogs or pedestrian crossings that cut the rhythm to people who have to overcome, without forgetting the inclement weather (wind, rain, cold, heat …). You don’t have to worry if you’re going to step on a sinkhole or any other obstacle, becoming the ideal instrument to improve the race technique, particularly in matters such as braceo, something that we can export to our outdoor race.
Another interesting aspect is the burning of fats. Cardiovascular exercise is essential to lose weight, and a treadmill will help. They are simple to use, comfortable, you can simply continue your evolution each day, will notify you with total precision of the distance travelled, speed, etc., and lets you do other things while running. We don’t chat about running while you listen to music or your favorite podcast: you can run while you watch TV, or even while you read.
Types Of Treadmills
We have multiple genres of treadmills, and depending on the type of exercise you do it will be preferable to opt for one or the other. The most basic are the treadmills for walking without motor, which advance by the contact of the foot with the treadmill. To facilitate movement they are inclined, and are lighter than walking straps with built-in motor. These allow us to set a speed that is always and in all circumstances is incessant – the minimum speed is usually 1 km/h-, but the enormous advantage is that we are allowed to walk smoothly.
Finally there are the treadmills themselves, which reach up to twenty-two km/h. They are similar to those of motorized walking, although on treadmills the engine is more powerful, so we can achieve higher speeds. According to the type of treadmill, on the screen we will be able to see the speed we are taking, the time, the training, the inclination -you can run flat or slope-, the calories we have burned, the routine and, in certain models, even the heart rate.
Tricks and routines for running on a treadmill
One of the great advantages of the belt is the simplicity it offers for interval training. This is a routine in which every so often we increase or increase the speed of the tape, so that certain intervals are really demanding while others let us recover the air until the next interval. Another version is the sprints: thirty seconds at maximum speed and twenty or thirty seconds of total rest, on a fixed side of the belt. This last routine can also be done with the tape inclined, increasing complexity, running 1 minute and recovering another sixty or ninety seconds.
Many times we focus on the number of kilometres travelled, but quantity is not homonymous with quality, a quality that is reflected in intensity: the more intensity, the more we are going to take advantage of the training. Most treadmills come with built-in routines, which can also help us when filling out our trainings. It is essential to alternate different routines so as not to fall into monotony, thus adding changes or variations to the tape sessions.
