The treadmill is a great way to burn calories and shed pounds. You may start out slowly, walking at a 2 mph pace. That’s all right. As you become comfortable with the machine and your muscles warm, gradually increase the speed.
Try not to hold onto the sides of the treadmill. Keep your arms moving. If you hold onto the machine, it will compromise your posture and possibly strain your muscles. It also will definitely curb the number of calories you burn.
Find a speed that’s right for you and hands-free.
