If you aren't burning as many calories as you'd like on the treadmill, it's time to make some changes to your programming. POPSUGAR spoke with David Siik, program and content director of Precision Running at Equinox, to learn how to burn record amounts of calories on the treadmill. Lace up your sneakers and get ready to maximise your burn with these simple tips.

1. Utilise the Incline

David knows a lot about how to get the most out of a treadmill workout, and he shared that "mixing up the incline and speed will really amp up your burn." Hills and sprints activate more muscles, which means you'll be able to burn calories quicker than if you did a long run.

2. Do a Combination of HIIT and LISS

Studies have shown that high-intensity interval workouts burn an insane amount of calories in a short period of time, but David says you shouldn't solely focus on HIIT workouts because of the impact your body takes. Mix up your treadmill sessions with a combination of high-intensity treadmill runs and low-impact steady-state cardio to provide your body with balance.

3. Pay Attention to Your Heart Rate

Often overlooked, David said that it's important to get your heart rate up to maximise your burn. He emphasised that programming in adequate rest periods that lower the heart rate is also important "and sets you up for a great calorie burn."
