Advantages and Disadvantages of Treadmill

One of the most popular types of home exercise equipment as the treadmill which provides a straightforward efficient aerobic workout for many. treadmills are a good choice to begin a new exercise routine. because walking is well tolerated by most individuals regardless of fitness level and for most back conditions as strength and endurance are developed the treadmill can be used for jogging and/or for interval training. today in this article, I want to point out some Advantages and Disadvantages of Treadmill to using.

Advantages to using a treadmill:

  • The treadmill is a relatively easy piece of exercise equipment to use.
  • The treadmill has a predictable surface that is much easier to negotiate than sidewalks curbs or trails and the risk of tripping is reduced for all aspects of the workout can be controlled by the user speed, incline warmup period, cool-down period, and energy spend.
  • Generally, users can design custom programs to fit the time they have to exercise.
  • Multiple users can use the same equipment without adjusting the structure.
  • Some treadmills have special features such as step counters and heartrate monitors. so Fitness progress can be tracked
  • Running on a treadmill generally burns calories faster than most other forms of in-home exercise such as biking.

Disadvantages of using a treadmill:

  • They can be expensive with some models over $2000
  • The cushioned surface of the treadmill may still inflict too much of a jarring impact on the back or stress the hip knee and ankle joints
  • Testing the surface and rebound as critical for they can take up a lot of space
  • the more sophisticated treadmills take up a fair amount of space to 36 inches wide by 72 inches long and generally do not fold up
  • Like other equipment with computerized programs and motors maintenance of treadmills usually requires a professional
  • some treadmills have loud motors that interfere with other activities near the equipment
  • Treadmills provide a limited kind of exercise walking to running.

The thing to know before buying a Treadmill

Here I’m to tell you in this article about the key tips in buying at the shred mill first thing to look out for a treadmill is speed. So all the different machines come with a basic speed of about 14 kilometers now after about 22 kilometers an hour. so if you’re just looking to walk or jog the bottom speed is okay but for any sort of interval training you really do need to be in excess of 16 probably 18 or even 20 and it’ll that allows you to do sprints even if for short periods of time.

Another thing is the size of the motor that’s built into the machine itself which correlates with the user capacity. so if you go something that has a one and a half or two horsepower motor that gives it the extra capacity to take a heavier user even up to two and a half horsepower. so it’s not just what you think the heaviest user is but also a bit of extra room to give it a life of the motor much more longevity over the periods of life.

A couple of little things to look out at with treadmills is the heart rate control mechanism. so most treadmills have a hand pulse like this where you put your hands on to get your heart rate. But the problem with that when you run at a normal rate and in a normal style you don’t get your heart rate.  So a better-quality machine has a receiver built into the console. you wear a chest strap and that means constantly your heart rate is being fed to the console and then the console is calculating that speeding up, slowing down, increasing, or decreasing the incline. so a great thing to look out for is wireless heart rate to be built into the console.

Another major difference is the programs between the treadmills. so a basic treadmill only has a few programs that mean it will increase in decreasing speed and incline according to a program. but if you spend more money you get much more sophisticated programs. even ones that react to your heart rate not everything about the treadmill is up in the console through a lot of what you pay for is down here in the deck that you’re running on. So firstly the shock absorption built into this every step you hit with on the deck is going to be absorbed by something and when you spend more money you get the variable density shock absorbers built into that the other thing is you get up wider and a longer mat.  So that’s not just for safety reasons in terms of falling off it. but it means you can really get a good stride going on a wider and along than that to allow for a more.

Natural exercise motion in closing there is a heap of different features from the big brands in treadmills but generally, you get what you pay for and as you can see from the range just here on the floor the size and capacity of them is pretty variable so good luck

Some people find treadmills boring after a while. So now it’s up to you if you like to have one for yourself or not.
