Lately I find myself setting the machine to highest level of 20 and restistance level of 20. It's a little bit of a struggle but after an hour, I usually end up doing like 540 calories. This is great and it's easier. It seems to target all the muscle groups on my legs and because of the higher level,, you go slower.
I used to do regular fast paced at like intervals of level 4 and 10 and would go fast and would come close to 500 cal burned, I would sweat more during that.
Is it okay for me to just do the higher setting one even though I am not panting and sweating like the other one? My heart rate monitor says I am burning more calories with this one.. just want to see results fast
