Running on treadmill: barefoot vs running shoes?
Recently I’ve bought a ProForm Power 995i treadmill on Amazon. I use it as a warm-up before and after active workouts. Before the strength training, running on the treadmill is a great start. After that, the effectiveness will increase, because of rising metabolism.
I always keep to this rule while training in the gym:
- First, I run on the treadmill to warm-up
- In the same way, I finish the strength training
What are my feelings? I feel a relieve after a hard load. Running on a treadmill, I feel mood and strength increase, it gives me energy and vitality. I feel lightness in the body, a wave of strength and good mood improves my well-being.
I have a question: how do you feel about running barefoot on a treadmill? Is it safe, and what are your feelings? Do you consider it more effective?
Personally, I got used to training in special shoes. Riding the stationary recumbent exercise bike, I always use women’s spin shoes. They’re made for increased comfort and safety during workouts. Choosing high-quality footwear is an essential component of workout for me.
Recently, I heard about the possibility of running barefoot. So I’d like to read your opinion. Share your experience:
