When using the treadmill, it is vital to do a pre-workout session or use some pre-workout formulas, to sync your body into its optimal pace. This happens naturally when we run outdoors, but for indoor runs, we must fight the urge to jump on the treadmill and crank away at your preferred speed. Below are five treadmill tips, for newcomers and regulars alike, to keep in mind the next time you jump on for an indoor run.

Warm up correctly: Before you crank up the intensity, warm up for five minutes on the treadmill. Jog or walk at an easy pace to warm up your muscles and prepare for an effective workout. For the days that I am on the treadmill, here are some of my tricks to make it the best experience possible.

Wear the right clothes. You are bound to get hot while running on the treadmill because, unlike outdoors, there will not be any wind to cool you off. I stick with lightweight tanks and shorts to keep me nice and cool. Top Three Indoor Treadmill Running Tips Everyman Triathlon. Olympian Joanna Zeiger and her training partner Brandon demonstrate the top three indoor running tips when you are on a treadmill.

Treadmill Gear: Given the indoor nature, you’ll want to keep yourself well-hydrated and as dry as possible. An easy to use waterbottle that you can operate with one hand is critical, and keep the water as cold as possible. A hand towel is also a good idea (I use a face cloth from home), just to wipe your face, hands, and arms as needed.

When deciding to start a indoor running program select a non slippery surface and wear running shoes for comfort. Running on the spot lift your legs to knee height and swing your arms. Lean slightly forward and land on the balls of your feet. (See video below for full instructions). What are the best treadmills?

1. NordicTrack Commercial 1750. The best treadmill overall. Surface size: 22x60 inches | Max speed: 12 mph | Max incline: 15% | Max decline: 3% 2. Peloton Tread. 3. Horizon T101.

4. Assault Fitness AirRunner. 5. Woodway 4front. Biomechanics expert Casey Kerrigan tells Runner’s World that if you’re running seven-minute miles on a track, you would encounter wind resistance, and adding a 1% incline to your treadmill will. These elements can be assisting your running journey smoothly and effectively.

When you want to think about workout equipped you to need to ensure that running belt is so much comfortable and stable for your running requirements. Weight capacity. Are you obese people and looking for the best treadmill for indoor use?Listening to upbeat music can have a very positive effect on the runner’s performance. Proper hydration is just as important when running indoors as it is when running outdoors.

In some cases, it may even be more important than it is outdoors.

  • Two words… Zwift Run

    Makes the treadmill time go by unbelievably fast. I don’t like running (I have the running technique of a rhino/gorilla hybrid), but two days ago I was on the treadmill for an hour doing 800m tempo intervals like a proper running person (although my ‘tempo’ is at 5-6min/km pace, at best… rhino/gorilla, remember).

  • Treadmill running is also helpful to the ppl who can’t jog or run outside bc their females. Just wanted to point it out. Amazing video,thanks

  • How to train your mind to last longer? I know I can run atleast longer than 10 minutes in the treadmill. But at 10th minute, my mind is so into stopping myself from running over.

    P.S. just now i promoted myself from 7:30 minutes to 10 minutes.
    A video on that would be great

  • Heal strike? Sounds like you guys have been playing too much World of Warcraft.

    All jokes aside, good pointers! Going to try them out tonight!

  • does anyone have any breathing tips while running? i would be able to run longer on there but i can’t because i don’t have a stable breathing pattern

  • I prefer no music at all and focus on my breathing also, tv on is a bad crutch to get you on the treadmill training is sorta a do or do not..l.

  • back about 25 years ago when i was 34 i had a cheaper treadmill i gave about $350 for from walmart then sold it. no way i could ever afford a real nice one like ya see in this vid or at the gym,k they can cost up to $5000. on the cheap one i built up my time to 60 minutes at a decent speed, but i havent been on one for well over 20 years and now at the age of 59 i know for sure i’ll have ta start off alot slower and take my time building back up. i’m just short of 6 ft tall and weigh 225 and am technically considered obese, i didnt think i was that bad but thats what the charts say. someone gave me for free a manually powered treadmill but i just can’t seem to get motivated to use it, as only the electric one can help force you to build a steady pace. i’m buying a cheaper electric one from my cousin someone gave him for $50, cheap but it works. i’ll use it till it wears out and by them ill have built myself up enough to use the manual one as a backup.

  • Thanks for the video, check this Safety measures on using Treadmills for your new Image health, wellness and fitness.

  • Chose the Random workout, about level 2. This will bounce you around up to 2.5% incline, so more like a flat run outside. Random works better than Hills as it goes to 0% less often. Not a fan of treadmills, but blizzards make speed work a bit difficult. Thanks, Heather.

  • During one of the rare rainy days in So Cal, I was doing an indoor brick at my gym. After about a half an hour, I reached for my towel to wipe my face (something you don’t really get outdoors), I accidentally dropped my towel, and incidentally dropped the towel. Without thinking, I reached down to pick up my towel, and was swept off. Having scrapped my left knee, and embarrassing myself, I then just stepped right back on… to the same exact effect, but to my right knee. I did finish my run, but with a red glaze on my face to match the set of red scrapes, burning from sweat, on my knees.

  • Been gettting shin and lower back pains pushing myself too much on the treadmill. I got new running shoes/socks and i have no lower back pain but slight shin pain. I think my posture is bad or im running wrong. I dont know

  • I started running 3 weeks ago. This may be a silly question. I want to be able to run without stopping every 1-2 minutes to have to walk and catch my breath. Should I keep my speed the same until I can run without stopping for a certain amount of time?

  • hello sir.does running daily on treadmill cause weight loss? i need to gain weight but dont wanna leave runnin.Advise plz. Thanks in advanced.

  • It’s also good if you live in excessively hot climates. It’s not uncommon to be 110+ in the summer where I live. My chubby butt is trying to get fit, not heat stroke.

    Not gonna lie, I also just want to get on a machine in the back corner where no one will notice me, so I don’t have to feel as self conscious while I’m there.

  • OMG you killed me with the incline walker XD. You can spot at least one of these specimens in their natural habitat at my gym xD rofl

  • Gotta say I don’t rate intervals that are done on and off the roller.
    Stay on the roller and turn the speed up and down and always complete the warm down. Other wise you have not completed your workout.

  • Outside has so many cons!! UV damage wrinkles you, glares make u squint, allergens blow around, get particles in eyes, fight wind, u get stinkier, shoes wear out faster and get dirtier, creeps hollering and follow, must stop if traffic passing by, leaves are slippery, puddles after the rain, etc etc

  • i dont know why but when i tried in the gym i got dizzy and confuse i can run in the treadmill, but dont have problem when i do that in open field, dont know why, well i never used gym till a few months my son invited me so i tried,

  • my partner films free city walk through video’s to walk/run to, (you can see them by clicking my icon) hope you find this to be helpful.

  • I stopped running indoor and outdoor because of heel-striking. I though such pain was immune by runners after a few years, but no. Figures I’ve been doing it all wrong.

  • Treadmill is great benefit to exercise / train without need to watch for uneven sidewalks and potholes in streets, esp on Telegraph Hill in San Francisco. Great for home bounds, like me after -2major surgeries during recuperation at 75 yrs old! 5/14/2019

  • What I found that helps with staying on the treadmill physically is a basic breathing technique. I make sure to take a deep breath at the start, and then shallow-quick breaths in between. After I start to get a little tired, I take a deep breath again. I can’t explain it perfectly but usually when you take a deep breath, you will find that sometimesyou can inhale completelybut sometimes you won’t be able to. At times you fully inhale it boosts your indurance, and as you practice, it will allow you to stay at longer durations. I’m not sure if it works for everyone, but I find it really helps for longer runs.

  • I’m more than obese at this point. Can i use treadmill for longer durations? Like 30 minutes, 1 hour and so on? Will it make an impact on my body?

  • Please consider all ranges of age and levels when you provide information regarding the treadmill. Some people are just starting out on a treadmill and can’t walk 3 to 5 miles. Remember there are Seniors who are looking for guidance:P

  • i struggle with caving my chest in and looking down at my feet when i get tired. i constantly have to correct myself. so i need to continue to practice. i figure once i get used to running i will be able to maintain form even when i am tired.

  • The guy on the left might be thinkingwhy I am the guy who always does things wrong? And the other guy on the right looks a lot like the character Michael from GTA V

  • I run weird for some reason.. i run like i’m on my tip toes but it feels unnatural to run flat foot/on my heel like normal people do.
    Would this harm me? should i learn to run normal? or is it ok for me to run weird?

  • I’m so glad I found you guys. You’re so creative and definitely help keep the running game interesting. I really wish you guys had a group in Los Angeles, but if you ever decide to expand down here I would love to volunteer for such a positive and encouraging group.

  • too long. get to the point ffs. so much unnecessary info. stick to the topic. show the form and add the rest of the theory in a diff video

  • Great tips……as we’ve come to expect ����. I’ve run 20kms on the tready in a session & find it to be great brain training for observing ones thinking as we fatigue. I’ve also used it to progressively push myself to a 19 minute 5km @ age 64. I do much of what you advise Nate but will do more. Thanks heaps ��

  • Do you guys know that treadmill brand and model she was on? seems very straight forward design and functionality and I like it…I’m in the market for one so really would love to know. Thanks!

  • I’ve heard you talk about cadence before. But I’m having a very different experience. I seem to use less energy with long steps. Much like horses do. When they shift from a trot to a canter to a gallup, they are using more energy and are more awkward and choppy. But when they shift to a run, they smooth out and stretch out. The momentum is already working in your favor to maintain speed. But there are fewer up/down/push motions per second and much less joint jerking. The muscles stretch all the way out between contractions and the core takes up more of the load.

    That’s my experience.

  • So, Jared lands his foot ahead of its body,
    Jared has lower cadence,
    Jared runs with a hunch back,
    Don’t be like Jared.
    Jared’s running sucks!!

  • I got hurt running on a treadmill a week and a half ago. Still recovering and haven’t been able to run since. I’m too scared to go back on it.

  • One of the greatest benefits to the treadmill is that it has low impact. Consequently it gives your legs time for recovery from the road.

  • On treadmill I am doing 15 minutes daily, 4 Min walking at 6 MPH, 7 Min 9 MPH and again 4 min 6MPH, but problem I am facing is that my shins started paining in the anterior part in the center, went through all the medical investigations but nothing came out. Can any one help me in finding out how I could get rid of this shin pain.
    Secondly also started low back pain and my lower back got so red and stiffed. Need suggestions for improvement….

  • @the run experience ive had shin splints since 1994 in the military bootcamp.. they’ve never gone away and I still get them bad. any advice? really want to run again

  • Thanks for the pro-tips. I especially appreciated the guidance regarding cadence. Intellectually, I recognized a higher cadence as optimal. I adopted it for cycling to much personal improvement. What was easy for me to accomplish on a bike eludes me on foot. I’ll recruit my wife’s treadmill during this winter to work on recognizing my present cadence and improving it to reach the 90-count recommended in your clip.

  • What are reasonable speeds to run on a treadmill? I’m prepping for a 5k and my PB is 30:20 on a flat course. (Getting below 30 minutes is an obsession at the moment.) I have managed to sustain 6.2 mph at 2.5% incline, but i don’t know whether that’s good or bad. What’s a “fast” mph for speed play on a treadmill?

  • Lol. I thought I was the only one thinking that holding on to an inclined treadmill cannot be an effective workout, it happens all the time at the gyms I go to (I am an avid walker and use the treadmill with incline for ‘hill training’, but without holding on for dear life lol). Thanks for pointing out other common mistakes on the treadmill while running (have to admit that I have been making some of those mistakes myself ;))

  • Really to that I say: just train outdoors. It’ll make you more resilient to all sorts of conditions you may encounter. Train mental fortitude as well as physical aspects. In fact I sometimes make a point of going out in the worst conditions of the week (rain, cold, windy…) and I feel it makes me, over the long run, much stronger mentally. And in general I believe tends to be a better exercise. Road running is already a very repetitive stress, but threadmill is even worst.

    The side benefits of outdoors training are worth more than the (marginal) time gain of threadmill training.

  • Since I am a beginner, I have tried the speed interval button on the treadmill at my gym just a couple of times. What running to walking intervals should a beginner use or start with to get used to running before just doing a say a 20-30 minute run?

  • Just bought a treadmill today..I live in Qatar in a hot climate and just can’t stand the heat..So hope this is a good choice to stay indoors and stay fit ��

  • I do many different types of workouts per week and I do jogging on TM 2 or 3 times a week. I am still a bit overweight. So I am trying to add the running because I know I burn more calories and it is fun to me to run. I wonder if u have any ideas how to get my knees and feet to not get sore since I do lots of other exercise through the week. I lift weights, HIIT, and aerobics, step, and bootcamp. I find the running is not as hard on my knees and feet as the other things. Can’t I do the jog and still lose weight if I do the steady state for 30 minutes? Because I do go a bit faster here and there. But for now I can only do 4.0 up to 6.0 for now but wondered if that is okay for now?

  • I like it as easy to monitor pace and time. Also I’ve been doing 10 minutes of single leg balance exercises daily for about 5 days and I’ve noticed noise of foot strike has drastically gone down.

  • Good advice-however if you spell your foots heel as they did here ( heal) I question the overall intelligence quotient involved. 1 thing they left out that is paramount: you must be @ 1% to equal flat outside to compensate for no wind resistance. I do all my mega fast track stuff on the mill-always slightly uphill. It pays HUGE dividends in the long run( pun intended-haha!)

  • I feel self conscious about running on a treadmill because I feel like I’m stomping and I don’t like how loud I sound. I need to work my way to running at a 6mph pace for a mile straight and I’m super worried because I’m so scared of getting past 4 mph on the treadmil

  • Keep up the great treadmill workouts they come in handy in Las Vegas running when its 105 outside aint gonna happen. Thanks for the content

  • Why didn’t you get one person to show the good and bad form. Would have been so much easier to see for point 1 along with more footage of their feet.

  • Hi can I still loose weight walk on speed 7 and incline 4 for 45 for 10 minutes 5 times a day. I have cancer I don’t want to go higher. Is it wrong 5o hold the handle sometimes I when I increase the speed.

  • Just started jogging/running recently after a 40 pound weight loss. Is a 12 minute mile alright for a beginner? And what ways should I improve my workout?

  • While running, I feel pain in my knee and now I am unable to run with the speed I used to.

    What exercises I can do to get rid of the pain

  • This helped me out a lot. Just received a cortisone injection in my knee and currently on anti inflammatory medication and was cleared to run however not squat and lunge. I use a treadmill until I build up knee strength to hit the streets��

  • Thanks for this video. I’m travelling for work, and I’ve been running on a treadmill in my hotel gym so this is great timing for me.

  • I am new to workout and gyms, when I go on the treadmill, I get bored to death, I get so bored that 15 minutes feel like 15 hours. I wonder if this is normal, or that I just have not learned to be patient. Also I get very irritated. I think I don’t like not occupying my mind with something.

  • I used to hold on when I ran on a treadmill before. But I got a wrist-based pedometer and I realized I wasn’t getting any steps credited. That’s when I learned to let go! Nice video heather.:) cheers!

  • If I do a steady-state run around 80%HRFmax 5 miles, with the 1.5% recommended incline, how is this afterwards to be considered in terms of output/performance evaluation?

  • It’s important to remain totally focused on the run. Becoming distracted, looking to either side or fiddling with your phone can cause embarrassing accidents.

  • I used to hate the thought of using a treadmill…until i had a day that was too icy to run on the road for a long run and just went for it and completed 2.5 hours and have loved all subsequent runs on there.

  • How is it that I can run for miles outside but running on a treadmill makes my legs hurt in 5 min? is there something to fix that?

  • Ok so my feet naturaly walk and rest my feet outward so what would I do about that? Try to fix them or is there a certain like thing I need to do?

  • my right foot hurts when I walk, I don’t know what did I do wrong it starter today, but the last time I ran was yesterday! the pain is on the right side.

  • If you are not to hold onto the handles, then what are they there for?

    Normally, the cardio sensors are on them for keeping track of heart rate.

  • shorter strides allow you to toe / forefoot strike and bring up you cadence using more cardio. vs long stride and using more muscle endurance. heel striking can also cause more back pain. always best to strike with your fore foot.

  • Good video, Only problem is that you are going to fast, a beginner should start at lower speeds basically baby steps to avoid any injury.

  • Heather, finally I have to disagree with you. Running with no purpose is better than NOT running at all. I believe there is NO such thing as Junk Miles. That’s my opinion.

  • I just turned 57.
    I tried doing 15 minutes, but that was too much. So I chopped off 5 minutes and do 2 or 3 High-Intensity spurts within that time. I set my incline at around 4 or above and start my speed at 2.5. Then I jump up to 4 6 and hold that until I’m uncomfortable, then I slow back down to 2.5. I’ve looked at my heart rate and it’s awesome. I feel fantastic. My form is good. No shin-splints. No pain. Just better and better energy and endurance.

    Next week I start Chemo and I plan to continue straight thru. It’s supposed to help.
    Plus they give you steroids to help alleviate the nausea so I’m gonna have to get rid of that extra energy somehow and sleep.
    I hope I don’t break myself. LOL
    Wish me luck!!

  • I love your channel..of and you while looking for alternative workouts. I have a spinal nerve impingement so doctors advised me not to get into weight training, Can I still run a marathon in this case? I have a training period of 3 months.. I’d at least like to do a half marathon.

  • I use now with ZWIFT running (iPhone, appleTV, POLAR Bluetooth foot pad). Super cool, run aleady a couple of hundred k,s. Sometimes Even with Friends

  • Couldn’t even complete the warm up. But shows me how much work do I need tho. Not sure if I should work on this routine regularly.

  • Thanks for the advice and information. I just cut 2 minutes and 12 seconds off my 5K time. I think my posture is much better, and my calves don’t cramp as much on longer training runs.

  • Awesome video with all natural movements. I will be adding this to my martial arts training. I agree �� with you in regards to treadmills. It would be great to hear your reasoning in favour of the natural movements. Thank you for posting!

  • I hate working out at a pleb gym where you have old fat people walking 2mph all day. Home treadmill workout or a decent gym would be no problem for winter mileage

  • Normally treadmill is called indoor equipment to take various types of exercise. The main aim of using treadmill is to take running aspect for keeping body fit.
     However it is very tonic videos in this case.

  • Jesus can you dumb it anymore??

    I think we all know how and why to use a treadmill.

    Was looking to learn some landing tips or arm and leg angles. Where you elbow should be, where ankles should be.

    This is how to run with training wheels and hand holding… smh

  • Great video. Made me look at my ‘dreadmill’ run with fresh eyes. Time to break out of my comfort zone on the treadmill. Just subscribed. Thanks

  • How do you “calibrate” a treadmill? I always feel I do more cadence on them but the speed is less than when running outside. I mean it feels like I’m running faster on the treadmill but the speed on it does not match what I feel outside, you know what I mean?

  • I’ve watched two videos on the same subject before this one, and none of them mentioned the safety string.
    I was really happy when you mentioned it, because this is, after all, a beginners tutorial and safety should be a priority on automated machines (also most beginners are a bit afraid from falling, so safety should help them get confortable)
    GG and continue the great videos

  • Middle aged runner here. Occasionally I run to the song Boys of Summer. It’s prefect for stride. The big bonus is that without listening to the song I can recall the background melody perfectly to check my cadence on any run.

    Today during a run I came upon a young taller runner (I am tall as well) who was lumbering with a slow cadence. Each step landed hard. I wanted to say something but did not.

    Runners might get away with bad form with low miles but form is critical with high miles. Great video! People should take the advice.

  • Any advice for sore calves while running, it doesn’t happen all the time but when I try to run faster than 9 or 10 mph that’s when one of my calves really tightens up and then I can’t run for about a week

  • one more thing. Always connect to the safety cord. No matter how good you think you are accidents can happen and flying off the back of a treadmill at 20kph in to a wall, a weights rack, another person or something else can be dangerous

  • You didn’t do the math in your head too well 5 mph is a 12 minute mile. Other than that, a great video. I never thought to do dynamic warm-ups on a treadmill, but it’s a perfect addition.

  • Very helpful videos. I wish you could have got a shot of the two runners at the same time to see the right and wrong way to see the differences. Still nice to see the differences. Just started running and hoping, if my fifty plus body allows, to run some races in the spring. Thanks for the help.

  • please add the subtitles. second, mute the voice and explain by focusing on the point or on the body part. third, try to use points on the board. finally, thank you very much for your effort

  • Tell Ed Moses about kadence. Like all sports the so called experts say what’s right and wrong but the champions often use “wrong” techniques, so just do it your own way.

  • hi i saw your video today it was awesome.I hv a question i have been running on tread mll from last one week but i usually have knee pain and yesterday i had pain in my back boan what to do?i am 48 yeas old and 70 kg height _5.3 from India.I wear nike shoes but dont know it is running shoes or not?

  • This treadmill is good. In order to protect your flat pile carpet and hard floors from damage, noise, and vibration caused by fitness or home gym equipment that you need an awesome fitness equipment mat. https://amzn.to/2UhXZkV

  • I used a treadmill one time, for about 15 minutes at a mix of jogging speeds. When I stopped, I proceeded to still feel like things were moving around me wrong for the next 20 minutes as I attempted to drive home. It went okay, but it was probably dangerous and I felt a bit nauseous before it wore off.
    I was really hoping this video would have some recommendations for avoiding that. I now know you’re supposed to slow to a walk for a bit and then stop, but I don’t know for how long or anything, and it’s no wonder I didn’t know about that at the time, as things like this don’t even mention that phenomenon.

  • As an older treadmill user (52) I find that my balance isn’t what it was. My treadmill is only very basic so doesn’t leave much room to manoeuvre. As a result I tend to hold onto the sidebars while running. Is this OK or should I be letting go of them to maximise benefit?

  • Thanks for the great ultra informative videos man! I do all my run training on a treadmill over the british winter. You’re so right about if you feel a tweak in your knee for example, you can stop there and then and focus on some leg strengthening or core exercises instead of a long walk home.

  • Can I use this to improve my cardio. I play football and I want to feel less exhausted after runs. Can I also use a treadmill to increase speed.

  • People holding onto the treadmill on an incline is the most common occurrence in my gym. I feel like asking them when outdoors, how do they walk or run up hills without something to hold on to?

  • Why I can’t perform the same pace/heart rate frequence performance I do indoor on the mill as well as outdoors?
    before past June I was a determined indoor treadmill hater. because I experienced a very much higher heart rate frequence at same paces as i ran outdoors. so that I had almost a heart in the threshold zone at basic endurance paces.
    Then I got injured in the end of May. in june i did a lot of indoor bike workouts instead. when i injury was overcome I started to try running on the treadmill (with backup indoor bike solution if foot didn’t go well). As went good i extended the workouts on the mill.
    after few months i must admit that my HRF got adapted to treadmill running. am now used to do 2-3 out of my 6 weekly workouts on the mill. including a threshold tempo run. at around marathon sub3hours pace during 20-30min. and my HRF stays comfortable under the lactate threshold.
    Outside at the same pace, more or less flat surface, the heart rate goes immediately over threshold and after half of the time I’m crashing in the wall…
    What can I do, to transfer the same perfomance from the treadmill workout to outdoors?

  • Good treadmill>>> arah.in/hFHr   initially it came with a busted part the amazon return policy came and picked itup. Weslo recently called me to let me know the warranty was expiring. I may reup on it.

  • The thought of running 5 minutes at 8% grade makes me want to cry.:-0
    Spoken like a true flatlander from NE Texas. My upcoming half marathon has a few long steady hills and I want to OWN them. I’ll definitely be incorporating this workout into my repertoire of dreadmill sessions.

  • I have been running before and have noticed sometimes after a run my calves are very sore. Am I running with a bad form? Also my wife tells me that it looks like I’m doing butt kicks while running. Thanks!

  • Your videos are always super informative and complete, I really love the way you explain things, and on top of that you are also super nice.

  • Brilliant video, thanks a lot! Recently been forced to run more in the gym than outdoors but this made me feel a lot happier about it!

  • I was getting a run test today. On a treadmill for the very first time. It was not as easy as I thought it would be. But left the store with some new shoes, Saucony Guide ISO 2.

  • Does anyone get dizzy or a tiny bit light headed after they get off a tredmil I get dizzy and light headed it’s not bad I’m basically normal I just feel a little weird

  • In 10 seconds we are already running. Yes it’s easy. NO IT ISNT.
    How do you get used to running on the spot? I just can’t process the feeling of going forward but staying still.

  • Sounds very sensible you do not need to follow exactly what is suggested but the thought behind this was great break it up and build gradually. Thanks!!!

  • Good solid video. I’m currently recovering from spinal decompression surgery 2 1/2 months ago, it was actually the week before the world went into lockdown, so gyms and physio went out the window. Just completed my third treadmill run today, any tips or targets to help me get back to my construction job ASAP please. Any good advice appreciated. Thanks.

  • Get informative video, coach Holly �� I need to do whatever
    arm workout you do because your arms are incredible haha so jealous! ��
