Maximize Cardio Benefits

March 08, 2012

Are you trying to maximize cardio benefits in your workout time? Try taking the eliptical path to better heart health! Nothing burns fat like an intense cardiovascular workout. A long run or bike ride is ideal but busy schedules mean many of us try to accomplish our total workout regimen in the gym. If this sounds like you, an eliptical trainer could be just what the doctor ordered! Elliptical training is non-impact, reducing the wear and tear on your joints that can be caused by a long jogging program. Eliptical trainers also work upper and lower body at the same time -- maximizing calorie burn in a single session. You can connect the machine to a heart monitor to adjust intensity. Take it to the max and you can burn as much as a thousand calories in an hour!
