Dos and Don’ts of Treadmill Running

Running on the treadmill has many great benefits. It is arguably the most popular exercise equipment in gyms and homes. If you’re someone who enjoys running exercises but dislike to go outdoors, then the treadmill-running is a great alternative. Treadmills are very safe and convenient. However there are some dos and don’ts you must pay heed to while working out on the treadmill.

Warm up

Warming up is important. Spend at least five minutes walking on light foot and slowly. Avoid the temptation of speeding away the minute you set foot on the machine. It is not good for the body. Before you step onto the treadmill, stretch your back muscles, arms, shoulders, and legs.

Posture

Begin your workout by walking on the treadmill in an upright position. Don’t workout on the treadmill in an awkward posture. The other muscles and joints may suffer as a result. Make sure your face, arms, and shoulders are relaxed.

Keep your head leveled, look straight, spine should be straight, and avoid looking down at your feet while walking or running. It could cause you to feel dizzy and nauseous. And never attempt to jump onto a running belt, loss of balance could cost your body dearly.

The Handrails

The handrails on the treadmills are only to give you support while getting on and off the machine. Nothing else. Unless you have issues maintaining your balance on the belt, do not grip the railing. Many people believe that one can walk or run on the treadmill while holding onto the handrails. It’s a common fallacy.
