💎If you look way back in my posts, I have talked about how normal motorized treadmills may not be the best for your body and could potentially do more harm than good! In short, this is because the treadmill is walking you, which can do harm to more than just your knees but also your lower back, neck and hips. In short, this is because the treadmill is walking YOU!
💎Now when you used you “curved” or a non-motorized treadmill, your body is able to move a lot more naturally. As you MOVE the machine, your weight is able to shift from one leg to the other and in short your glutes and hams fire for hip extension as well as your oblique’s to rotate your pelvis one way and your thorax the opposite way. The curved machine also MAKES you strike with your heel which will increase the firing and activation of your ham, glute and adductors!
💎I know not all gyms have this machinery, but if you can’t get on a NON-motorized treadmill, I would highly recommend just running outdoors instead of getting on a regular treadmill.
