In­cline run­ning can have a huge ben­e­fit on run­ning per­for­mance. My Pro­tein health and fit­ness ex­pert Faye Reid ex­plains how:

Feel the burn

‘With a mere 5 per cent in­cline you can burn off al­most 100 calo­ries more than when you’re run­ning flat.’

Pre­vent in­juries

‘Up­hill run­ning is a per­fect op­tion for any­one look­ing to work those rear mus­cles and avoid ex­ces­sive strain to their shins and knees.’

Im­prove endurance

‘As the in­cline will re­quire more ef­fort and put your mus­cle fi­bres to work, in time your run­ning stamina and form will im­prove.’

In­crease speed

‘As well as build­ing your stamina, be­cause of the ex­tra work­out to your leg mus­cles, this will also help in­crease your run­ning speed.’
