Why You Should Try Running On An Incline
Treadmill incline training mimics the ground outside, so if you dislike hiking in the hot sun, this treadmill activity is for you. Similar to walking on an incline, running on an incline gives you plenty of benefits.
Instead of increasing the speed for an intense workout, you can add an incline to increase your heart rate and burn more calories. By adding an incline, you can burn as much as 50% more calories, and burn more fat.
Walking at an incline makes your body work harder which strengthens strengthening your quadriceps, glutes, hamstrings, hip flexors, Achilles tendons, arms, and core. After only six weeks of incline resistance training, you’ll see a significant increase in speed and strength.
