The elliptical is a great way to get in a quick cardio workout that is easy on your joints. It is a versatile machine too and you can reverse directions with ease. When I work out on an elliptical, I like to challenge my core by avoiding the handles. This little routine is no exception and only has you pushing the handles for a couple of intense sprints. This half hour workout is fun and will definitely help you get your heart rate up.
To see the workout, just
|16:00-18:00||5||130||Backwards w/ hands|
|18:00-19:00||7||130||Forward no hands|
*SPM = Stride per minute
Set incline to 20 to 30 percent
I found it challenging to keep my SPM at 170 with the resistance set to level nine, but it felt great to push myself. Try it and let me know what you think. You can print this workout and take it to the gym.
