There are many reasons as to why you should start working out on treadmills. Although there are a few negatives such as the start up cost and how at times you can put too much pressure on certain joints of your body, there are so many positives to working out on a treadmill that the few negative points hardly seem to matter. You can ignore that bad point of there being a start up cost too because a treadmill is not the most expensive exercise machine out there and you can find bargains out there.
As for the fact that sometimes you can put too much pressure on certain joints during a rough treadmill workout is only due to over exercising and/or incorrect usage.
There are plenty of health benefits when it comes to working out on a treadmill and the biggest health benefit that is the number one influence on people switching to using treadmills is the cardiovascular benefits. You can actually strengthen your heart if you work out on a treadmill at a steady pace on a regular basis. You can also increase blood flow to every part of your body including your brain, lungs, heart, as well as each and every muscle. Using a treadmill can allow you to monitor your heart rate due to the heart rate monitor that is almost always built in to the treadmills on the market today.
You can also set an incline, which is the angel that the machine is set at for you to walk or run on. When you exercise on a treadmill using the incline feature you can help your body build muscles in the ankles as well as in the calves area and upper to lower thighs, depending on how hard you work out and how steep the incline you are working out with has been set to. If you are working out to help your lungs out then the treadmill is the best way to go because all of the deep breathing that you do during a treadmill work out will most definitely influence your lungs to breathe better and deeper as well as increasing the blood flow to the lungs which allows for a healthier set of lungs.
You can burn a ton of calories when you work out using a treadmill! In fact, there have been numerous studies where the participant lost more calories using a treadmill than that of using a stationary bicycle machine, a skiing machine, or even those dreadful stair climbing machines. There is an average report of about 500 calories being lost by only working out for about an hour on a treadmill with no incline effect used either! Adding the incline effect will only increase the amount of calories lost as well as muscle gained. The best thing about working out with a treadmill is that you are in the comfort of your own home and you can read a book or even watch television while getting a trusted workout.
