  • Step 1: Warm up Warm up your body with a five-minute jog before stretching. Stretch your quads, calves, and hamstrings, and begin your workout.
  • Step 2: Set on incline Set the machine on a 1 percent incline. You will use more muscle groups on an incline, which will burn more calories.

  • TIP: Keep your hands at hip level.

  • Step 5: Run in middle Walk or run in the middle of the treadmill. Running too close to the sides can cause your arms to rise, which will cause stress on your shoulders and neck.
  • Step 6: Shorten stride Work on your speed by shortening the strides when you run. Strive for 46 to 48 strides in 30 seconds.
  • Step 7: Add intervals Add speed intervals to your workout. Begin by walking or running at your normal pace for two to three minutes and then go at a faster pace for 30 to 60 seconds.
