IMHO, the elliptical is useless unless you use a decent enough load. The momentum from a good start can keep you from doing anything for the remainder of your workout. Add to that the geniuses who lean their weight all the way over the machine. As far as cardio equipment, one that seems to really tire people out is rarely used in gyms: the arctrainer.
of course, you could just do CT’s lactate training (hypermetabolism) and feel like you spent a year on the treadmill.
I decided on a concept 2, hopefully from ebay where I can save a few bucks.
I read in a MH article than they burn less cals than other cardio equpiment, so why do they burn the most fat than just because they use the whole body?
SHould I stick with the rower or get a eliptical?
I’ll politely disagree with ellipticals being useless. Any exercise can be useless if you aren’t doing it properly or know how to apply yourself to make it worth your time.
