    Hello. I have a question about the uphill weighted me workout. I live in a city and will be performing most of the weighted me workouts on a treadmill. Should I not hold onto the rails/handles at all? What am I losing if I do?

    On either a treadmill or stair machine or stairs I recommend no holding on to the railings to help train balance. All three of these already have uniform surfaces so offer very little in the way of a balance challenge. Holding the rails removes even that small effect and takes some of the load off your legs. You will benefit more from a stair machine than a treadmill unless your treadmill will go very steep (30+%).
