Treadmill Incline test
In my last post I mentioned that one of the prizes for the Self Challenge was a Nordic Track incline treadmill that went up to a 40% incline. That is really steep! The benefit was that it would burn 5 times more calories than a flat surface. I decided to do a test on my own treadmill to see how many more calories I burned between 0% incline and 15% incline. 15% is the highest that my treadmill goes.
I did a little video. I just got a camcorder and I have to practice making videos so I am good at it before I have to submit one for Jillian’s Destination Me Challenge.
Note: In the video I start off by saying that I am going to “test the theory” that incline burns more calories than no incline. That is really a given and there is nothing to test. I should have just said that I was going to see what the calorie burn difference was between the two. I obviously did not have a script and I did not want to redo it!
Here it is – don’t laugh!
