How To Create A Treadmill Workout Plan
Has your doctor told you that you need to develop a treadmill workout plan? Probably not. The last time you saw your doctor he was more than likely focused on your absolute need to reduce your intake of steak and bacon. The word exercise was probably somewhere the most last lecture he gave you during your physical exam. A treadmill exercise plan can help you meet your weight loss and fitness goals. It also gives you something to show your primary care physician during his next exercise lecture.
Things You Will Need:
• A Treadmill
• Some Paper
• A logbook
Begin by evaluating your daily habits for a week. Keep a log of the times you usually waste watching television to see where you can use your time in a more productive fashion. Make sure your treadmill is in good equipment.
Use the information to decide on the amount of time you want to spend on the equipment and the days you want to use it. Your plan should include one day off of exercise to let your body rest.
- Decide what your goal is for your treadmill workout plan. Bodybuilders will want to lose fat and keep muscle. A person in good shape will use a cardiovascular workout plan to maintain his current state of health. An overweight person may do it to lose weight. The techniques for each method are different.
Write the treadmill workout plan down. The act of writing your exercise activity down helps commit it to memory and gives you something to refer to when trying to get the schedule down. Record when you do your exercises in the log book.
- Review the schedule every week for the first month and make adjustments as necessary. Your treadmill work out plan could include walking, running or a combination of the two. Benefits are only obtained from any exercise you stick with it.
