Kill it With Cardio #13: Elliptical Training

March 21, 2015 1 min read

For those who hate cycling and have achy joints, the elliptical machine presents the perfect cardio alternative to the treadmill machine. You get the same walk/jog/run style workout, but with far less impact! One of the things that makes the elliptical awesome is the fact that you can do cross-training, working out both your upper and lower body at the same time. As long as you work those handles hard, you'll get a solid workout in. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="550"] Source: www.popsugar.com[/caption] It's estimated that you can burn around 750 calories in an hour of elliptical workout. That, of course, is ONLY if you push yourself and go at a fast pace. Slow things down, and you'll only reach about 400 to 550 calories. The problem with the elliptical machine is that it's harder to pick up the speed. Many people who train on the elliptical stick with the same pace, only changing the incline. This is like doing a jogging workout, which burns some calories but has very little long-term effect on your body. Still, it's a good way to get low-impact cardio if you've got aching joints, are recovering from an injury, or are just too sore for your sprint training workout!
