    The T1000 Treadmill has enough programs to keep it interesting. However, to add some upper body strength and lower body strength, try these small routines on the alternate days of using a pre-programmed routine. Adding strength by using the same equipment you use for cardiovascular workout days is a win-win.

Start at 1 mph for these and do not exceed 2 mph. The purpose of this exercise is slow and controlled.

This routine emphasizes a lot of lower body strength.
