Intervals On The Elliptical


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

Try the interval program on the elliptical trainer. For 5 months I used the elliptical regularly in the 1 to 3 resistance level. I didn't think I could do more. Then I tried the interval program. I not only could I do it, but I burned far more calories than in the weight loss mode.

The interval program I use goes from level 3 to level 7 resistance. I use a stride of 26.

    I love the interval setting on the elliptical! You can "notch it up" as you get used to it to make more progress, and yes, it burns tons of calories!!

    This machiene scared the crap out of me at first, but I was able to go from level 1 for 15 min to level 3 for 25 mins in just a week. Mainly because I had never used a machiene before to work out so it took a few days to build us to a comfortable level of exertion without going overboard.
