So I’m at the gym warming up and walking on the treadmill. I’m watching this chick go mass speed at a large incline, and she’s grabbing the front of the treadmill. What’s the point of the speed and incline if you’re just going to drag yourself along by holding onto the treadmill? If you want a better and more effective work out, don’t hold onto the machine (except if the arms move as they do on some ellipticals). Also there’s a guy on the rotating stair stepper machine and holding the majority of his weight up with his arms. Once again, hardly a work out for your legs. Try it. You’ll see and feel the difference. Don’t be a half-asser! If you’re going to do the exercise, do it right 🙂 Well, time for me to get my sweat on!
