Losing Weight On The Treadmill

Updated on September 8, 2012

Frequency,Consistantly & Intensity Is Key

Source

Looking to lose weight on the treadmill, you have to be consistent in your workouts to lose weight. If your out of shape and haven't work out in awhile, your treadmill workouts should not be as intense when starting out. Start out slowly and then build intensity. You will reap weight loss benefit. The more intense the workout, the more calories you burn. You should set a goal to walk on your treadmill for 45mins or more each session.

When I come home from work, I make it appoint to work out on my treadmill for at least 30-45 minutes. I have done this for about 2 month consistently and I notice myself shedding pounds and inches melting around my waist. Taking days off or cutting your exercise workout short only hurt your weight loss efforts.

Working out on various speed levels provides a better cardiovascular workout and also work different muscle groups as your stride change, you get better results.

What I like about the treadmill walking is that it has less stress on my knees and joints. Also I don’t have to worry about walking in different weather condition. I can monitor my own temperature indoors and have a good workout.

Sometime walking on the treadmill can become boring. What I do to keep me motivated and focus is listen to music, read a book and sometime chat with a friend over the phone. What ever work best that keeps you focus and motivated, will be just find.



Safety Tips For Your Treadmill Workout

1. Always warm up at a speed of 1.5 mph for about 2 minutes.

2. Increase your workout slowly. You should stay at one level for 4 weeks before moving to the next level.

3. Never try to rush to see instant results. This will lead to burnout.

4. Always cool down. You need to slow down the pace and allow your muscle and heart rate to return to normal while you’re still moving.
