Treadmill Never Good Option
Maybe it’s because of the rain, or the convenience of your own personal TV, but the treadmill is never a good option because it alters the normal mechanics of movement, whether you’re an athlete or just trying to lose weight.

Because the belt pulls your leg through, rather your own leg, there is a significant decrease in the the muscles in the back of your leg (i.e. hamstrings and glutes). Such equipment forces a greater hip/knee drive as well to keep up with this moving belt. The result is increased stress on the quads (muscles in the front of your leg) and the knee joint.
