Benefits of a Treadmill Incline Workout February 16, 2014

• Challenges the cardiovascular system without requiring speed; ideal for people either not in the mood for speed workouts, or people who cannot ambulate swiftly due to orthopedic conditions.

• Because an incline challenges the heart at a slower walking pace, this means less impact on knees and hips.

• The slow nature is good for people either just getting back into exercise after injury, or for people new to exercise who don’t want to pull a muscle at faster speeds.

• Recruits lower back muscles to keep your body erect.

• Provides a stretch to the calves and Achilles tendons.

• A great alternative for people suffering from heel pain (plantar fasciitis) because of the minimized heel-strike impact, and the stretching of the foot with each step.

• An alternative for people who are getting bored with the same ‘ol flat walking or jogging
