Re: Questions Questions Question (Incline Walking)

Yes! You must wear a good fitting tennis shoe (maybe one with ankle suppot) while walking on the treadmill. If you are not, you are defeating your purpose a little bit. Your form can not be correct unless you have on shoes and the insentity that you need to walk will be stiffened by not wearing them. I think that your manual can be just as effective but you have to use it correctly. Try walking at a brisk spped for 5-7 min and then do an all out sprint for 2 minutes. This "spurty" training burns more calories than maintaining a constant speed without being to hard on your heart and body.
