Treadmill is the most popular trainer from the group of cardio. Workouts on treadmills help to strengthen the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous system, develop core muscles, fast to lose weight. In their principle of action of treadmills can be of two types: mechanical and electric drive. Below we compare all their detailed characteristics and features.
The treadmill of such simulators has no drive. It is driven due to the muscular effort of the athlete. This principle allows to realistically simulate natural running. Mechanical treadmills can vary depending on the braking system and the resistance of the tape. Motorized treadmill with magnetic braking and load differ from conventional models with smoother movement of the tape. Magnetic trainers, unlike standard mechanical felt the slight jerks while running. With a simple mechanical drive can control the speed of running their Continue reading
Today treadmills have enjoyed special fame, because to hold them workout right at home. Even if your house has a fairly small size, the trainer will not take up much space. In addition, the treadmill is easy to use and allows well to strengthen the nervous, cardiovascular and respiratory system, carefully consider the core group of muscles and very quickly get rid of excess weight.
The tracks differ in principle of operation:
Tape mechanical devices works with load-effort that this principle of movement closely simulates realistic natural walking and running. Mechanical track in turn differ in the type of inhibition and resistance of the walking belt. If the training device has magnetic braking, as a result of running the tape is to be moved smoothly, and on other models in the process Continue reading
Interval training is a workout with alternating heavy load and light (average) load. Interval training has a positive effect on the training of the cardiovascular system, increase endurance, burn fat and calories (some studies show that interval training is very effective to lose weight), as well as the development of muscle force.
Classic interval training:
Progressive interval training:
6. Running an average pace (2 minutes at a speed of 4 km/h)
Attention! Data are given as examples and are not working program.
Progressive interval training requires more training and is not recommended in the initial stages of training.
The maximum duration of a heavy Continue reading
