    incline treadmill for conditioning

    I do not have access to a sled, prowler or hill.
    If I have a finisher, say,of hill,prowler or sled sprints can I use the incline function
    on the treadmill and what setting should I use.

    I think you can ~ This is something I do all the time:

    1. put your treadmill on the highest incline setting (mine is 15%),
    2. Select a speed somewhere around 3-4 miles per hour
    3. Turn around so that you're facing backwards
    4. Start to backpedal

    I try to set the speed so that I'm toast after about 2 minutes... then I turn around, and walk forward to recover. Repeat (as many as 4 times).

    Very nice finisher for quads.....

    Does this pose make my camera look big?

    I've been reading where some guys shut off the power and push against the resistance. Kind of like a prowler.
