Choosing a Smarter Kind of Treadmill - Demonstrated Benefits of Incline Training
Most of us will make use of a treadmill at some point in our training regime, whether it is in training our own bodies or that of a client. In a society where most of us are incredibly time-poor, getting maximum benefit from our efforts in exercising is a priority. Why not consider then making the simply switch from the standard treadmill to an Incline Trainer.
An Incline Trainer can offer all the function of a standard treadmill, but with the added benefit of 30% incline and- 3% decline, offers greater versatility, and in many cases, enhanced results.
Alongside the principles of exercise bioenergetics, research has demonstrated the valuable benefits of incline training including:
Increased heart rate and cardiovascular demand without increasing speed to high levels enabling exercisers to increase cardiovascular fitness without increasing risk of treadmill injury
Increased muscular demands of walking and running enabling a muscular fitness workout during cardiovascular exercise
Increased ability to burn fat through increased muscular activity at a slower speeds accelerating weight loss
