Lots of people have a love/hate relationship with treadmills.
But one fact is undeniable – they’re fantastic for getting a quality workout and avoiding bad weather conditions. And their time efficiency is really great.
However, there are a number of mistakes that runners make on treadmills.
I hope this article will make sure you don’t make those mistakes too.
One of the most common mistakes is skipping the warmup.
Just because you’re indoors and you feel warm and you want to be time efficient, does not mean that you should skip the warmup. It can be disastrous.
The idea of warmup is to warm your blood flow and your muscles as well as to help you get the most out of your exercise session.
So, make sure you do a good warmup every time before stepping on your treadmill.
Another common mistake is stomping or slapping feet on a treadmill.
This mistake happens because some people are running differently indoors on a treadmill than they would outside. There is no reason for that.
Use the exact same technique when you are running outside and inside.
Stomping or slapping your feet will put a lot more strain up through your body.
You should remain nice and light on your feet and you can lean slightly further forwards and keep your chest up.
Another thing you need to do is keep your eye-line high. Do not stare at the dials down below you all the time because that will cause poor technique.
Another mistake is running without a purpose or just doing the same thing every time.
That’s bad for your motivation and your fitness. You need to mix things up and create a session plan. It can be a tough interval session or it can be a recovery run. You’ll get a lot more benefit when you run on the treadmill with a plan.
Never jump off the treadmill at full speed. It might be tempting if you’ve just completed a really hard session, but it can end up very badly. Always drop the speed slowly so you can recover.
If you need to suddenly take a break, put your hands on the rails and take your feet off and pop them on the side.
Bring a water bottle because it is going to be hot. You need to stay hydrated.
When running indoors, you should wear clothes that are a little bit thinner, otherwise you’ll be sweating a lot.
Think about where you will position your treadmill. You can even have it in front of a mirror to watch yourself if that motivates you. Or you can have a screen. If you do have a screen, place it at the right height, so you’re not straining your neck.
It’s really important to have good music for your workout. It’ll help with your motivation and your overall performance.
Here is a very simple and very beneficial tip for those of you who love using the treadmill.
If you’re looking to burn more calories during your workout, one thing that you don’t want to do is put your hands on the treadmill while you workout. Many people are holding on to the handlebars on the treadmill.
They don’t realize that this actually decreases the calorie burn on your workout, despite what the machine is going to say, because the machine isn’t aware of the fact that you’re actually decreasing the amount of work that your body is doing, specifically your legs when you hold on to the treadmill.
When you’re holding on to the treadmill, you’re taking the work out of your legs and out of your core and your abs. That means that you’re actually going to burn less calories, because now you’re using less of your bigger major muscle groups, like your legs.
If you’re going to use the treadmill and you really want to make sure that your calorie burn stays high, just do not hold on to the treadmill while you’re working out.
Some of you are probably going to say that you are holding on because you feel unstable, you feel you are gonna fly off the treadmill.
Truth of the matter is you’re not going to fly off if you put the settings at a speed where you feel comfortable walking or running. It’s all in your head. You just gotta get used to the treadmill, get used to that motion and you’ll be just fine.
If you feel like you are going to fly off the treadmill, then that’s just a sign that you either need to decrease the speed or decrease the incline to a point where you feel comfortable and you can do it without holding on to the treadmill.
