Working out on a treadmill can become very monotonous and boring very quickly. In fact, you may start counting down the seconds until you can turn the machine off. Believe it or not, there are many different options that still provide a great workout on a treadmill that are far from ordinary. Below are just four of these unique workouts for you to try.
There are many different uses for a treadmill that simply do not include running at all. Set the speed of the treadmill at 2 mph, which you can alter, depending on the speed that is best for you. Then, do walking lunges.
Side shuffles are just another great exercise that you can do on a treadmill instead of worrying about having enough room or running into an unsuspecting gym patron. Set the treadmill on a speed that will create a challenge for you, likely ranging from 3 mph to 5.5 mph.
This workout is unlike any other. Start in a planking position with your hands on either side of the treadmill base. Have the machine set on an incline and around 1 or 2 mph. When you are ready, place your hands on the belt and walk them along for the entirety of the workout.
It is very likely that you have not even done a crab walk since elementary school. However, this is a great workout that can be done on a treadmill to work your triceps, glutes, hamstrings and more. Simply walk backwards on the treadmill with your hands on the belt.
