October 1, 2015

PS300_With_ModelOnce you get in the groove of working out on a regular basis, it’s easy to establish a routine and repeat the same exercises on the same equipment for each workout. However, mixing up your workouts is essential in order to keep your body challenged and benefiting from the session. Most of us are guilty of arriving at the gym and hopping on a free treadmill and completing the same run we do every day. To get the most out of your treadmill workouts, mix it up with these changes.

Hill Workouts Challenge Your Legs

TRUE’s treadmills offer a wide range of console options that come equipped with preset workout programs to satisfy any user’s fitness needs. Try completing TRUE’s hill workout session every three days to add variety to your exercise routine.

This workout is great to mix into your routine as it gives the legs a challenge they don’t receive on a daily basis. It consists of a short warm-up before the hill workout begins. When it does, the treadmill will automatically increase and decrease the incline of the treadmill randomly throughout the workout to give your legs a powerful challenge.

Interval Workouts Increase Endurance

TRUE’s consoles also offer an interval workout that can be completed on any TRUE treadmill with the capable console. This workout consists of a short warm-up, then short spurts of high intensity exercise, followed by a short cool down period before the exercise picks up again. This process is repeated over and over again until the workout length, distance, and time the user has selected is complete.

Interval workouts are a great way to help increase your endurance and get you prepared for long bouts of running. With the combination of sprints and cool downs, your body remains challenged while being able to rest between sprints.

Endurance Workouts Get Your Heart Pumping

This final treadmill exercise is typically the pattern we all fall into: hopping on the treadmill, completing a quick warm-up, and running for 20-25 minutes at a constant pace. However, you can monitor your heart rate to make sure you’re getting the most out of this run-of-the-mill routine.

To ensure your heart rate is in the correct zone for an endurance workout, simply place your hands on the Heart Rate monitors on any TRUE treadmill and the console will display which Heart Rate zone you are in currently. Simply adjust your speed, incline, etc. to reach your designated Heart Rate. TRUE’s treadmills make completing endurance workouts a breeze with their Heart Rate Monitoring technology.
