How to choose a treadmill - running away from a heart attack

Every day we read that in order to maintain health it is necessary to run in the morning. But we have thousands of excuses: no time, no place for jogging, non-flying weather, a tracksuit not fashionable enough. The ideal way out is to install a treadmill at home. Then for classes you can select a convenient time. Let's talk about how to choose the right treadmill.

Why do you need a treadmill

Be honest with yourself: how often have you seen your simulators (and, perhaps, are themselves sinners) exercise machines, whose fate is to serve as a clothes hanger? It happens all the time. Initially, we enthusiastically take up sports, but over time all the ardor fades, and the simulators begin to quietly gather dust in the corner. Why it happens?

Perhaps you just gave it to him, but he was not particularly needed. Or you purchased it by chance, to keep up with fashion. The most frequent option is that the wrong track was purchased: dimensions do not fit, functionality was incorrectly chosen, a completely random brand was acquired,which you just "vparili" in the store. Well, or you yourself did not clearly imagine what exactly you need.

Running track for home

If you consciously came to the conclusion that you will regularly engage in, then the treadmill should become a true friend. And for this, it should be right for you in all respects. Let's talk about how to choose a treadmill that will become your faithful companion for a long time.

How to choose a treadmill: mechanics or electrics

Let's say right away: electric treadmills are somewhat more expensive than mechanical ones, but this is the case when you shouldn’t save on health. After all, in fact, what is the main purpose of running? The treadmill is, first of all, a cardiovascular equipment. Now imagine the process of running on a mechanical treadmill.

In order for the running belt to move, you will have to push it off yourself with a lot of effort. As a result, it is not cardio load that turns out, but an incredible load on your legs - your joints, kneecaps and ligaments suffer. What is the result?

Powerful treadmill

Instead of the expected tone, you feel pain in the legs, the development of varicose veins is possible, and instead of strengthening your health, you come to the fact that you need to take medicine.

No and no again! No mechanical track, only electric! Electricity bills will still be lower than checks from pharmacies. Yes, and the desired result, you are unlikely to achieve, because very soon give up classes.

Tilt angle adjustment

Do you agree that the load must be diversified, gradually increasing them? In a treadmill, a change in the angle of inclination is one of the most necessary requirements. In the simplest and cheapest models there is no such function, therefore, the load will not change. For regular training is not an option.

Electric treadmill

If the budget is limited, then you should choose at least a track with a mechanical adjustment of the angle of inclination. Ideally - automatic adjustment. That is, just click on the "magic" button, and you are already running uphill, and not on a flat road. Such simulators that are equipped with a mini-computer have such a button.

Engine power

Power is one of the main parameters of the treadmill, which should be considered carefully. It depends on her performance: the speed, the permissible weight of the athlete. If the power is insufficient,then either you will be offered a weak load, or the simulator will quickly fail.

Naturally, we are talking about constant, not peak power. Do not take a simulator less than 2 hp. More power means less overload and more effect.

Consider the maximum user weight

If all other parameters of the track are suitable for you, ask yourself how much weight you can do with it. For low-cost models, the limit is 80 kg. That is, a little more weight - and the damage will be more and more often. And if someone from a family with a large weight wants to run? It is better to choose something with a large margin of safety.

Which running belt to choose

If you think that it is the same on all lanes, then you are deeply mistaken. Before you choose a treadmill, ask about the characteristics of the canvas. First, it is its width. With greater user weight, a greater width and, accordingly, a length should be chosen.

You should not take it “with reserve” - the greater the width and length, the more space will be occupied by the path, and the electricity consumption will also increase. As for the cover of the canvas, it is better to choose a multilayer - the level of depreciation will be higher.Also, if you choose a double-sided canvas, then as you erase one side, you can simply flip it over.

Depreciation on the treadmill

Pay attention to the cushioning on the track, so running will be much easier, and the invasiveness of joints will be reduced to a minimum.

Do you need a lot of programs

If you are an absolute beginner, then several basic programs will suffice, that is, it is worth choosing a track with a minimum number of operating modes.

More sophisticated users stop their choice on the tracks, where there can be several dozen programs. It is clear that the more programs, the path will be more expensive.

Multimedia Treadmill

Of course, there are additional parameters that are not so important for training, but can be great to diversify them - the multimedia capabilities are expanding each time. Now, while running, you can read, listen to music, watch movies and TV programs.

If you are willing to pay for all this - there is no limit to perfection. Most importantly, remember that your main goal is to maintain physical fitness and health. Therefore, training should be regular.
