Product details of Lexcon Magnetic Resistance Elliptical Cross Trainer with Hand Pulse An elliptical trainer or cross-trainer is a stationary exercise machine used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact injuries. For this reason, people with some injuries can use an elliptical to stay fit, as the low impact affects them little. Elliptical trainers offer a non-impact cardiovascular workout that can vary from light to high intensity based on the speed of the exercise and the resistance preference set by the user. Most elliptical trainers work the user's upper and lower body (although some models do not have moving upper body components). Though elliptical trainers are considered to be minimal-impact, they are an example of a weight-bearing form of exercise.They can be self-powered by user-generated motion or need to be plugged in for adjustment of motion and/or for supplying their electronic consoles and resistance systems. Cardiovascular Benefits Elliptical bikes help improve your cardiovascular fitness. They work both the upper half and the lower half of the body, stimulating your blood flow. Ultimately, this causes your heart rate to increase and strengthens your cardiovascular system. As with all aerobic exercise, exercising with an elliptical bike reduces your risk of heart disease, stroke and hypertension. You can also change the intensity level of your elliptical bike to create a more difficult workout and further increase the cardiovascular benefits. Calorie Burning With elliptical bikes, you burn plenty of calories in a short amount of time because you work your entire body. When exercising on elliptical bikes, its simple to develop an rhythmic pace. To increase your caloric burn, increase your pace or the resistance on the machine for one minute. Then, return to your normal level of exertion for two minutes. Repeat the intervals for a 15 or 20 minute period. These high-intensity intervals allows for you to burn more calories during and after your workout. Building of Muscle Elliptical bikes are even beneficial for building muscle. This particular piece of exercise equipment works both halves of your body, allowing you to build muscle in your legs, arms, back and abdomen simultaneously. In addition, you can change the resistance to create a more difficult challenge for your muscles.
