Types of workouts for treadmills
Treadmills are super versatile pieces of kit and can offer many ways to work out depending on your routine and fitness goals. Here are three of the most common ways to use your treadmill, all of which you can undertake on the Pro-Form Trainer 9.0.
Interval Training: Interval training on a treadmill involves alternating between high-intensity effort and recovery periods. This type of workout can be tailored to individual fitness levels, making it versatile for beginners and seasoned athletes.
For instance, a session might include short bursts of sprinting followed by a slower pace or walking. The intensity variations help burn calories effectively, improve cardiovascular endurance, and boost metabolism over time. Throw on a weighted vest to make it even harder.
Incline Workouts: Incline workouts focus on adjusting the treadmill's incline to simulate uphill terrain - this engages different muscle groups, mainly targeting the glutes, hamstrings, and calves. Walking or running at an incline increases the effort required, resulting in a more challenging workout that enhances strength and endurance.
Additionally, you can use the incline feature for steady-state climbs or incorporate it into interval training, providing a dynamic and efficient way to intensify your treadmill routine. Make sure you have a good set of running shoes for this one.
Endurance Runs: Endurance runs on a treadmill involve maintaining a steady pace over an extended period, typically ranging from 30 minutes to an hour or more. This type of workout is excellent for building cardiovascular stamina and improving overall aerobic fitness.
Users can choose a moderate speed that allows them to sustain the activity comfortably, making it ideal for those aiming to increase their endurance gradually. Endurance runs are physically beneficial and provide an opportunity for mental focus and discipline as you work towards covering longer distances or durations.
