If you’re like most people, you end up having to use a treadmill quite a bit more than you want to. It’s just a given that it’s much more convenient. The weather doesn’t always cooperate. You live where you can’t get to trails or safe places to exercise. You are traveling for work or other obligations.
Face it. You end up on a treadmill way more than you actually want to.
For most of us, running on the treadmill isn’t going to work out the way we want it to. In order to make any progress in fitness or losing weight, you’d have to go a lot faster than you are able to safely.
If you go slow enough that you can safely use the treadmill, or avoid injury or chronic pain, you don’t make any progress. How do we get around that?
What if you increased the load while simply walking at an incline?
A study has shown that increasing the load, even by 5 or 10 percent of your body-weight, in the form of a vest or weighted backpack, while increasing the angle of the treadmill, even as little as 5 or 10 percent inclination, as a serious impact on the efficiency of your workout. In other words, even walking at a moderately slow speed, with only 10 to 20 pounds of extra weight, at a gentle incline on the treadmill, is among the most effective, yet simple workouts you should do.
How do you even begin this simple effective training method?
When many people first think of what this means, and how to do it, their minds are blown. Seriously. Weighted backpack training for cardio is actually quite simple. I’ve recommended it to several dozens, possibly hundreds of people over the years. Yet only experienced mountain climbers and hikers are able to wrap their heads fully around the idea of training with a weighted backpack.
The simple guide that points you in the right direction:
That’s why I wrote “Rucking Simple Treadmill Training Guide” for them. In it, we go from zero skills to accomplished rucker (slang for backpack walker) in a week or less. You get the full rundown on what rucking is, what types of backpacks are best, and what kind of weight you should add to your pack.
You also get the scoop on how to safely use and set up your treadmill for incline walking. Add in a couple of very basic workout goals, and you’re set. If you need more, register for the emails and I’ll hook you up with new weighted backpack challenges, training program printables, training logs, all the goodies coming up quickly. Please don’t miss them.
