The Bowflex TreadClimber is a combination exercise machine that works as a treadmill and a stair climber. However, owning the machine does not guarantee that you are getting the most out of it. There are some tips that you should consider based on your level of fitness and the amount of training that you have already done.
Beginners Training Regime
If you are new to using the Bowflex TreadClimber then you should start with an introductory training regime. This regime will start with you using the treadmill section of the machine at a 2 mph speed for 30 minutes. You should complete this 3 times a week for a single week to start with.
The second week of the regime will see you using the treadclimber section of the machine. You should use this setting for 30 minutes 3 times in the week. In week 3, you should continue to exercise at a steady pace for 2 days and work for 30 minutes each day. The third day of training in this week should be used for an interval workout which needs to last for 30 minutes.
The final week of this regime will see you completing 30-minute interval workouts 2 times in the week. There should also be a single day of steady pace for 30 minutes. This should be kept up until you feel that you can progress to the intermediate training regime.
