5 burning questions about running on a treadmill
Training on a treadmill can get super-boring, super-fast. But it can be a bad-weather necessity—unless you’re willing to sacrifice your cardio. Rob Sulaver, a trainer with Peak Performance NYC and founder of Bandana Training, answers our burning questions on the advantages and disadvantages of treadmill training. Want to know if it will slow you down or affect your “outside” running program? Sulaver covers everything from what to do with your form to how to avoid that embarrassing flying-off-the-treadmill moment—which is funny when it’s someone else, and just embarrassing when it’s you.
Should my form differ on a treadmill?
Will training on a treadmill slow me down?
How can I use a treadmill as an advantage in my training?
Are there any injuries to be wary of on the treadmill?
As for shin splits? Sulaver doesn't believe treadmills alone cause them, but says if you're shin-splint-prone it's important to increase both intensity and volume of training gradually. "It’s also important to take care of your shins pre- and post-workout, which means stretching and soft-tissue exercises," he says. "If it gets very bad, you may need to cross-train a bit until the pain and inflammation is more manageable."
What can I do to combat boredom?
Week one: sprint for 20 seconds, rest for 40 seconds; repeat this six times in a row. Take a three-minute rest. Complete the sprinting series three times total.
