The Benefits Of 30 Minutes On The Treadmill A Day
What are the benefits of running on the treadmill for a mile everyday or every other day? Also is it better to do it everyday or every other?
Yes, Of Course:
Walking or an 30 min will help you burn
up about 100 calories extra, over a month this could be about 1lb. However, if the exercise makes you more hungry or if you use it as a reward to eat more, you will not lose weight at all. 1 extra slice of pizza adds
500 calories, or about 5 miles of walking or
30 min x5 or 150 min on the treadmill!
do it as much as you can, but not to injure yourself. ...Read more
Benefits: Incline walking and sprints on the treadmill will both increase the intensity of the workouts you do. This will boost metabolism of your muscles, making them hungry for energy. Try to incorporate some type of speed workout or incline workout roughly 1-2 times a week. Overdoing it can lead to injuries. ...Read more
Some: The scenery changes, you are less likely to get mugged, the air smells better. All joking aside we are happy you are exercising and where ever you jog makes you healthier. ...Read more
Use more cal/min: U r doing more work not only propelling ur self forward but u r also lifting ur body also, therefore using more energy and burning more cals. Just b careful, it also puts more stress across ur knees and esp patella-femoral joint. 5-7 is a good safe elevation, but if ur body tells u no, listen 2 it and lower the incline. ...Read more

Yes: This would depend on your goals and your initial fitness level, and how vigorously you are using the treadmill. Government guidelines recommend at least 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes a week of vigorous aerobic activity. However, the truth is that with so many of us not exercising, we would applaud your 15 min a day, and encourage you to build on that over time. ...Read more
I try and walk 5 days a week at least 60 minutes a day on the treadmill at 2.3 mph with no incline is this still considered cardio?
Cardio: Your question is missing any kind of data to make a good answer. The biggest issue is are you getting your heart rate to a level that is 'excercise'...Like at your age you should be at 130 to 140 beats per minute. If you are at this level you are exercising appropriately. If not you are just sauntering and wasting your time. ...Read more
I'm 42 years old and I am diabetic. I control it by diet. I weigh 176lbs. If I do 50 minutes of treadmill a day, will that help me lose weight?
Probably, but...: 50 minutes of cardiovascular exercise a day is a great start. It will increase your body's use of glucose and increase fitness. However, weight is a function of the number of calories you take in as well as those you burn. If you increase the amount you eat because you work-up an appetite you may not lose weight. A healthy diet is an important part of the process. Remember to talk to your pcp! ...Read more
What happens if I exercise on a treadmill for 45 minutes a day will I get toned in my tummy and lose weight?
Can you tell me if I exercise on a treadmill for 45 minutes a day will I get toned in my tummy and lose weight?
Stopped all sugar/junkfood/pop three weeks now, on treadmill 20 minutes a day -three weeks now, butt and hip really sore thought I am used to it by no?
Yes--by sweating off: You will not be able to lose 3500 calories (value of 1lb) in 20 min of exercises on the treadmill, but you can certainly lose a pound or more from sweating. Wearing sweat pants/shirts/hood and running hard for 20 min will cause much sweating and losing a pound is easy, but this is only water--which will reaccumulate when you drink fluid. Losing real wt is hard work! Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Yes: If you are healthy enough to jog for 20 minutes on a treadmill, then do this every day with devotion to the point of fanatacism. Yes, this would be a great way to start daily routine of exercising. Simply walking for 20 minutes a day on a treadmill is also great. I prefer my walks outside, but if you prefer the machine, then go for it. ...Read more
That is incredible!!: I don't hear that too often these days--doing 2 hours worth of exercise/day at age 68 is awesome. You actually answered your own question. If you are not healthy, you won't be able to do that for 2 hours. I am beaten by nearly 30 yrs and I don't think I can last 2 hrs on the treadmill--hope I can do 1/2 of that at 68. Keep up the good work--i can see u beating 100 yr mark. Good luck. ...Read more

Someone said that running on incline treadmill may lead to injury? Is that true? Iam 17 and run for 12 to 14 minutes.
On the treadmill I have the incline on 6 to 8 and 4.6mph for 30 minutes. I sweat pretty good. Is this a good pace to shed a few more pounds?
The exercise is good, and will help you lose weight, as it keeps muscles in tone and strong. They require more energy for maintenance than the connective tissue and flab they replace.
However, to lose weight, you must also eat sensibly, fewer calories than you use each day. ...Read more
Will jogging on a treadmill for 30 min a day count as the required per day I buy one for 50 dollars with broken incline on it rest works fine?
Sure: The physical activity target recommended by the CDC is 150 minutes per week of MODERATE intensity activity (brisk walking) or 75 minutes of VIGOROUS intensity exercise along with muscle strengthening activities 2 days a week. So 30 minutes a day would put you at 210 minutes. .. you'd be good! Ok if the treadmill doesn't incline. Add in some strength training. .. and Congratulations on good plan! ...Read more
Is having 35 diastolic okay? It has gone up only to no higher than 47, 35 being the lowest. Went on treadmill for 10 to 15 minutes only went up to 44.
Low blood pressure: Systolic blood pressure (the top number) less than 100 is pretty common among healthy young women. Diastolic blood pressure (the bottom number) of 35 is quite low. If you have symptoms from this (such as dizzy, lightheaded, or fainting) then it should be checked out. A cardiologist would want to know if there are other medical problems, diet habits, and if there are heart valve issues. ...Read more
Dizziness: Perhaps this is not indicative of a disease but just normal human physiology. When working out that long two things my happen: 1-heart rate may be reaching above target points 2-effective sweating and vasodilation. These two responses can lead to a reduced cardiac output and dizziness. It is important to stay well hydrated (gatorade may help). Check with your doctor to ensure you are safe. Be well. ...Read more

And, when you are walking on the treadmill you are moving fast enough to get your heart rate to about 130 beats per minute for the full 30 minutes every day. ...Read more
Yes.: That sounds like it should be fine. Check your heart rate during exercise - your should be about 160 for maximal cardiovascular benefit. If it's higher than that, but not higher than 180, then great. If it's lower than that, you may need to up your pace a bit. Any cardiovascular exercise will be beneficial for weight maintenance and health. ...Read more
