You’ve been running countless miles and the weight just seems to stay the same. Sound familiar? While diet plays a huge role in the weight loss game, we all know you can’t out-exercise a bad diet. But there is one sure way to burn more calories while you run:

 

Incline

If you run at 6 miles per hour for 30 minutes, you can burn 34% more calories when you increase the incline by 5%!

 

Beginner Tip

Start with intervals.

Run without an incline for 1 minute. Then increase your incline to 5% for 30 seconds. Repeat as many times as you can. How do you make your workouts more efficient? Let us know in the comments.
