9 Terrible Treadmill Mistakes that Make Trainers Cringe

Warming up on the treadmill

At least you’re warming up, right? “Wrong,” says Michael Moody, Chicago-based personal trainer and author of Redefine Yourself: The Simple Guide to Happiness. “While ‘warming-up’ on a treadmill may increase the blood circulation to your muscles, it limits your range-of-motion even as you seek your full stride.” This is a problem because, as he says, you may strain the muscle you hope to open, which will result in less range of motion. What Moody suggests instead: low-impact exercises including body weight lunges, squats, and hip thrusts before hopping on a treadmill to run, jog, or power walk. Try these stretches that’ll improve your flexibility.
