Four treadmill workouts to burn calories, lose weight, get faster, and improve endurance. Turn the “dreadmill” into an exciting part of the training. I don’t know anyone who loves the idea of getting on a treadmill for half an hour. If any people like that exist, I envy their ability to enjoy running while staring at the seconds ticking by.
While I’d much rather run outside, it’s not always possible due to bad weather or personal safety. Plus, running on a treadmill can help you fast-track specific goals, such as speed — it’s easier to keep up a sprint when a machine dictates your pace.
The treadmill doesn’t have to be so dreadful: The right type of workout can make it fun. Or at least so challenging that you can’t even think about being bored. After you’ve fueled up and completed your warm-up, hit the gym (or your home fitness equipment) with one of these heart rate-elevating, boredom-busting treadmill workouts.
