Hi, this is Ryan George. Today, we're going to talk about incline training for weight loss. So sometimes running isn't an option. And when that's, when that happens a great alternative is training at an incline. Whether it's walking up a hill or using a treadmill and putting the treadmill on an incline. So today we are going to discuss how to do that and how to make it effective. So doing cardiovascular work for weight loss it's important to get the heart rate at a level where you're working. But it's enough that you can sustain it for an extended period of time for 45 minutes to an hour. So sometimes running is not an option. Whether it's if someone has knee problems or it's jarring, or their back problems. Something about running doesn't make it work. And so if you are training in incline it's a great way to get the heart rate up but not injure or not exacerbate other injuries. So when you are doing that it's important to still be aware of the knees. You don't want the knees falling way in front of the toes. And you want to make sure that there isn't any discomfort when training in an incline. The second part is you do want to make sure that the activity is vigorous enough that you are working at the heart rate is getting up to a range that that is working. And then the third part of training in an incline is you want to make sure that you don't get to the point where you are both running and training at an incline. So if you start to increase your speeds and notice that you are getting to the point where you are jogging and running then it's important to lower the incline in order to protect the knees and protect the lower back. So training in an incline is a great alternative to running or jogging. Just make sure that it's done safely. And be aware of how your body feels while you are doing it.
