  2. Raise the gradient of the treadmill to about 10 degrees and enter the jogging stage. This setting and pace allows the calves to become more slender, while preparing for the mid run phase.
  3. Enter the middle speed running stage, speed 10 km / H-12 km / h, and keep for 15 minutes. This is the real stage of burning fat, because the glycogen stored in the body has been broken down, and the body fat begins to supplement the physical strength, so you can feel the pleasure of the fat penetrating from the skin of the abdomen, thighs and even arms!
  4. From medium speed to steady speed, the speed is 6km / h, and the speed lasts for 10min, while the gradient is correspondingly reduced. After the high-intensity exercise, the gradient will slowly decrease, the speed will slow down, and the body will gradually relax. This process of slowing down and descending can help the body recover.
