When one thinks about treadmill workouts, there are several images that are conjured up. These include stale air, boring indoor gyms and a lack of stimulation and challenge. Many people find that treadmill running is one of their most boring workouts.

But what if it didn’t have to be? There are many benefits to training on a treadmill, including lighting, controlled temperature and a safe environment. If you take the time to develop a challenging, exciting and well-paced workout, you will soon find that your treadmill workout does not have to be boring in the slightest. There are many ways to improve your treadmill running and add fun to something that might seem boring at first glance. One of the ways to do this is to use scheduled, planned treadmill workouts, that give you flexibility and challenging terrains, all wrapped into one.

There is more precision in treadmill workouts, which allows for the freedom to experiment with your pace, the hills and to test your limits in a safe environment, instead of an unpredictable, dangerous outdoors. Once you have mastered your running on the treadmill, you will be able to take it outdoors without any worries at all.

Start out by running slowly for ten minutes, then increase your pace to twenty second more than your usual pace. Run at this speed for five minutes, before cooling down by running slowly for ten minutes.

Treadmill  Workouts 4

Begin your workout by running at a slow and easy pace for about ten minutes. Once you have warmed up, set the treadmill to move at least thirty second faster than your usual pace. Workout at this speed for three minutes, before turning the pace down to three minutes of slow jogging. Repeat this three times, before jogging for five minutes. Repeat another three times, than cool down by five minutes of slow running.

These treadmill workouts are varied and diverse. By using a variety of these workouts over the course of several weeks, you will not only boost your running time, but your fitness level as well. It is important to consider the fact that cardio of this nature boosts your heart rate and increases your fat burning capabilities. In this way, it will help you get into shape quickly and effectively, while leading to an over-all healthier body image and metabolism.

The positives to running on a treadmill include the ability to control all of these factors and settings with precision. The built in timer allows you to focus on the running, rather than losing track of where you are going, and letting your concentration dip, by constantly having to check your watch, or phone. This ensures that you stay on track and have an accurate depiction of how fast you are running, and what types of hills you are able to run easily.

This ease of tracking progress makes your fitness goals easier, and far more manageable to achieve. The safety measures that are present and the ability to monitor your heart rate, and keep it within a safe and healthy range, are all positive, especially for those who have known heart conditions, or are beginning to age. This ensures that everyone who trains is healthy and safe, especially in the winter months, where poor weather conditions can make training impossible, or highly unsafe (frost, lightening storms, etc).

By following these programs, you will be able to achieve your goals swiftly, easily, allowing you to continue to strive towards your goals, no matter what the circumstances, weather, or time of year!
