How to Get a Good Treadmill Workout in Less Than an Hour

The treadmill it is one of those pieces of exercise equipment that is either loved or hated.

First step is to stretch before you start the treadmill for about ten minutes or so, especially your legs.

Get on the treadmill and plug in your age and weight. This is important because you will get more correct numbers for your heart rate and calorie burning which you can usually monitor on the machine, and now when picking your pace number start with a low one such as 2. Make sure that once you start walking you do not hold on to the rail of the treadmill, as it will defeat the whole purpose of the exercise; if you need to do it at the beginning for balance make sure you do not keep your hands on for more than 30 seconds.

Now that you are at pace 2, after three minutes start increasing to 3 and at this point if you want to work your lower back increase the elevation as well up to 3 and go uphill for five to seven minutes.

Next at minute eight increase your pace to 3.3-3.5 and keep walking up hill for another five minutes, at this point, if you have not already, you should be breaking a sweat.

Next lower your elevation rate slowly to 0 and this should take a minute to two minutes. Continue walking at the 3.3.-3.5 pace for another three minutes.

At this point you are 20 minutes into your exercise routine and you can start decreasing the pace rate, so go from 3.3-3.5 to 3.2 for a minute and then decrease to 3 for four minutes. At minute twenty five of your work out slow down even more going to 2.8 and every minute there after decrease of 0.2 points until you get to level 0.

At this point get off the treadmill and stretch your legs for another 10 minutes. If you have not exercised in a long time, start more slowly maybe the first day you can half everything down and the next time you get on the treadmill you are ready to go full on.
