Tone the Stomach, Legs & Buttocks using Treadmill

A treadmill workout can maintain your physical health, mental health and improves cardiovascular health. It builds your muscles like legs, thighs and buttocks and it also tones these body parts. You can also tone your stomach while using treadmill.

How to Tone your legs and stomach

When you decide to tone your body parts, you need to lose body fat and build lean muscle mass. For this you must do regular cardio exercise with a healthy diet and strength training. Cardio requirements can be fulfilled with walking on treadmill with zero incline but walking on an inclined treadmill adds resistance to your workout. Walking on incline provides strength training to your cardio workout as you work harder against gravity. Lean muscles mass are the non-fat parts of your body like muscles and bones. Strength training builds lean muscle mass and it helps in burning fat and help tone your body.

No spot Reduction

Using treadmill improves your cardiovascular health and heart rate, burn body fat and gives strength to your leg muscles. The use of treadmill three times a week for 30 to 45 minutes also works your core. When the core strength increases workout becomes easy and more beneficial.

How to strengthen core:

Stand straight and maintain a steady rate of breath and work you oblique muscles alongwith side muscles by swinging your arms. No exercise targets your specific spot of body. You need to lose fat and build lean mass in order to tone your muscles. To do this you need to reach your target heart zone. Any cardio workout increases your heart rate up but on treadmill heart rate goes up while working different body parts. For burning calories your heart rate should be around 65-85 % of your maximum heart rate.

Importance of time

To achieve your target is possible but it depends how much time you give to your workout on treadmill. The harder the you work the nearer you go to your goals’ achievement. Plan to walk jog or run for three hours a week. Interval training or alternative between sprinting and jogging will keep your heart rate up, boost your metabolism and help you get results fast. A benefit to interval training is you can achieve the same results you would from walking for a half hour in about half the time.


Regular cardio may help lose weight but there is no surety of toned legs. To tone your legs, burn more calories than you consume. After burning or consuming calories your net loss should be zero. Work hard and long enough to get better results.
