The Pros & Cons of Running on Horizon Fitness T101 Treadmill
First of all, it’s a great alternative during the cold season, when you cannot exercise outdoors
However, there are a few things that you should keep in mind:
- Even if you’re not running outside, you must always wear sweat-absorbing clothes, which allow the air to penetrate and sporty footwear because the bottom surface is slippery
- The running speed must grow progressively because warming up is crucial.
- Keep your back straight.
- Always keep your knees a little bit bent.
Even if you do it for less than 30 minutes per day, running on the treadmill improves the heart condition and the entire cardiovascular system.
It reduces blood pressure, increases the amount of pumped blood, decreases blood viscosity, increases the number of red cells and strengthens the cardiac muscle tissue.
