I like working out on a treadmill. It is soft on my joints and easy for me to keep track of my heart rate and keep me in the zone. When I try to loose weight, I find different kinds of treadmill exercises help me keep them going. I share 2 tricks I use to vary my routine. I hope others share.
1. I record an entire one hour TV show with commercials and move that to my IPad or I’ll watch a regular TV on the treadmill. I do a nice walk during the show but when commercials are on, I rev it up to a run at about 80 percent of my max for all the commercials. I find this gives me a great workout.
2. I take some weights with me on the treadmill and I’ll do 25 bicep curls, 25 triceps extensions, 25 shoulder presses, 25 arm raises. I do this at every 10 minute area. So, I do it the first time at 10, then 20, 30, 40, and 50.
