Advantages and Disadvantages of Exercising on a Treadmill

First of all, let me say that if you are getting up out of the chair or off the couch to exercise, I salute you. As far as that goes, I could care less whether you choose to go out for a walk or use a treadmill. Nor, at least at the start of your new exercise inclusive lifestyle, do I much care wherever you choose to do pushups and other bodyweight exercises, take up yoga, beginning lifting weights, or walking or jogging.

The point is that you are exercising. Once you have started making exercise a part of your life, one of the most important things you can ever do is … wait for it … do not stop!

However, some of you will opt for walking or running either as the major focus of your exercise routine, or as a means of getting the cardio portion of some larger exercise program. At some point, you will be walking through WalMart or Sears and the display of treadmills will catch your eye. You will see price tags ranging from a couple of hundred dollars to a few thousands.

To tell the truth, you could easily be sucked in by the high end models and wind up paying $ 5,000 or more for something that seems to do everything but cook your breakfast, wash your back, and sing you to sleep at night!

However, sometimes you do not need all the gadgets and gadgets! Maybe you do not even need a treadmill. Maybe you are just being seduced by the dark side of the treadmill force. There is not doubt that it can be terribly seductive.

Let's take a look at some advantages and disadvantages of exercising on a treadmill. Maybe that will help you decide just how much treadmill you can handle, pardner. In fact, you may decide that you do not really need a treadmill at all!

As an after here, one of the major reasons for owning a treadmill is to get an aerobic (cardio) workout. For many people, and for many reasons, elliptical trainers, stair steppers, and / or stationary bicycles may be a better option entirely. For the moment, however, we will just compare apples to apples and try to figure out the advantages and disadvantages of exercising on a treadmill … or not.

One of the first thoughts a person will have on the subject is "the weather"!

Obviously, a treadmill is generally going to be set up inside. It will be protected from temperature fluctuations and will typically be in a place that is heated in the winter and air conditioned in the summer. It will be accessible during rain, snow, sleet, and dark of night.

Sounds like an ad for the US Postal Service!

Anyway, that's a definite advantage in my book. Score "1" for the treadmill.

So, what's a disadvantage?

Well, what if you want to do something like a triathlon, hike mountain trails, ski, or run cross country? A treadmill, … Read More

Fat Loss Exercises: The Best Ones Around

If someone were to ask your opinion on the best fat loss exercises, your answer would be aerobic. Well, partly true but there is a bigger picture you need to look at. Resistance training plays a big part in burning calories as well. As opposed to aerobic exercises, resistance training exercises burn calories for a longer time after exercise. And, we all know for a fact that more calories burned equates to losing weight or staying lean.

So, how does this work out? For a simple reason that muscles form a major chunk of your body. When you train muscles during a typical resistance training session, your muscles are going to be hungry for calories. Thus, whatever food you eat is used by muscles and not stored as fat. Another key thing you have to remember when you go on a weight loss program is that you are looking to up your metabolic rate. Well, since skeletal muscles are the most metabolically active tissue in your body, what better way to up the metabolism than give your muscles a good workout? Let's have a look at some of the best resistance training as well as aerobic fat loss exercises.

A typical program for quick weight loss should include a minimum of 4 sessions a week. These should combine 2 sessions of resistance training, a session of long slow duration cardio exercises and a session of intense, short burst exercises.

Each session should begin with a 5 to 10 minute of warming up. A thorough warm up to get the core body temperature up and mobilize the joints is important. It also prepares your body for the task at hand.

Resistance training exercises

The best resistance training exercises for express fat loss are the ones called the composite movements. Now, compound movements are the ones where in 2 or more joints are involved, for instance, the squat, dead lifts and bench press. These compounds movements can be done using either barbells or dumbbells. Barbells tend to use more weight whilst dumbbells give you better ranges of movement and also hit the stabilizing muscles more. Some of the best fat loss exercises are squats, dead lifts, clean and presses, bench presses.

Aerobic exercises

Some of the best and most often used exercises for express fat loss are kettle bells, plyometrics, treadmill and the cross trainer.

The treadmill and cross trainer workouts are typically called the long, slow duration aerobic, fat loss exercises. These are good for beginners or for people who have gone off their fitness programs for a while. However, once you have been at these for a couple of weeks or maybe 4 weeks, it's time to go onto the more intense fat loss exercises.

Kettle bell swings and plyometrics are the more intense, short burst fat loss exercises. There are a number of kettlebell moves ranged from swings, both arms as well as one arm along with cleans and presses and the more difficult ones like the treadmills. Kettle … Read More

Among the enormous variety of different weight loss pills brands there are several basic types that differs by the way they affect our body.

Appetite suppressants

This is the most widespread means of weight loss. Appetite suppressants emerged since 1950s of the last century.

As a rule, the components in appetite suppressants restrain activity of sections in our brain, responsible for the rise of appetite. Appetite suppressants are quite effective as a method of struggle against excess weight, and they helped lose weight to many people during decades.

But the majority of appetite suppressants are prescription based anorectics that are prescribed by doctor. They also contain chemical components, and you can face side effects while using them.

Water Versus Sports Drinks – Which is Better For Workouts? – Ask Your Personal Trainer!

Eight Glasses a Day

We've been told all our lives to drink 8 glasses of water per day. We've never told why though. I generally never cared why, because as a kid, I basically drank water whenever I was thirsty. That made sense to me. Still does. Unfortunately, you can not wait until you're actually thirsty to drink water, as that means you're already dehydrated. So what does that have to do with losing weight and why all the controversies over water versus sports drinks?

Sports Drink Science

In the late 1960s, a certain sports drink was invented which contained a logo of an alligator. It did not become popular until the mid 90s – right along with bottled water. It claimed that it contained certain ingredients necessary to replace electrolytes lost during exercise. As the years progressed, due to very strategic marketing practices and the bottled water craze, this particular drink got extremely popular and sales skyrocketed! So now we have this huge war going on – water versus sports drinks.

Marketers for the sports drink conglomerates want us to believe that when we exercise, we need to replace the sodium and water that we lose during exercise. Yes, we do need to replace the water but the sodium and electrolytes? I have a problem with the latter half of this claim, simply because water was and continues to be the original sports drink. During caveman days, that's all man needed – water. And believe me back then man did more exercise than we actually do today! I see all kinds of trendy drinks in the vending machines at the gym – some are fancily bottled and pricey, while others are moderately priced. The same can be said with water. The only advantage sports drinks have over water is taste.

Water Tastes Bland

Although water is good for the body and is nature's sports drink, unfortunately, because the American palette has become irrevocably tainted by sugar, water tastes bland! Americans simply can not drink anything unless it has at least c cup of sugar in it (per pint) or an equal amount of caffeine. We've also been duped into believing that bottled water is cleaner, purer than tap water. As a result, bottled water shot up in price and their rise in popularity became the impetus for the water versus sports drinks war.

A Good Personal Trainer Can Set the Record Straight

Fortunately for us, most personal trainers know the score. They know that these trendy drinks can never replace good old H2O. That's why personal trainers are the best source when it comes to exercise and diet. They have less invested in you purchasing water or sports drinks. Their investment is in you losing weight, becoming fit, lean and toned. In that respect they will help you make the best decisions as far as what course of action you need to take, based on your personal profile. … Read More
