Treadmills: love ’em or hate ’em we have all used them.
Save your knees, ankles and hips by putting the gradient on at least 3%. When we run we load our joints with a huge amount of impact with every step we take. Having a gradient will help displace the impact. The bigger the gradient, the friendlier it is on your joints and the harder it is on your muscles.
Its always important to work out with the right gear.
When doing olympic lifting or leg workouts, try using flat soled shoes or even bare feet as it will help you lift heavier and improve your technique. Wearing the right shoes also takes all the pressure off your vunrable ankle joints by speading out the force of the weight across your whole foot rather than on specific points
They are worth it.
