Bodybuilding Questions - Lose Weight With A Treadmill
My fitness goal is to drop some extra weight. I have a great
treadmill that me and my wife invested in and have only used it
sporadically. Could you offer any suggestions as to the best way
to drop approximately 20 pounds using a treadmill? Going to the
gym is hard for me to do with my commitments and after work I spend
time with my children and wife. I work in a physical trade as a
carpenter building homes and when I get home I'm tired. Even though
I lack energy, I still try to run on the treadmill at 9pm for 45
minutes. Is that enough?
If you can run for 45 minutes on the treadmill 3-4 nights a
week, you're on the right track to lose weight. Make sure you watch
your diet also which is even more important than cardio for keeping
the weight off. Here are a few more weight loss tips for you:
- Do 1 hour of cardio (treadmill) in the morning on an empty stomach.
This will allow you to tap directly into your fat stores without
relying on glycogen (carbs) for fuel.
- Try and cut out all starches/sugars after 7pm. Eating carbs
later at night when your insulin sensitivity is heightened will
be an easy way to keep packing on fat.
- By adding cardio sessions to burn fat and a clean diet to fuel
your body, you will be on your way to a lean physique.
