Elliptical Machine: Cardio is defined as any type of exercise that gets your heart rate up and keeps it up for a prolonged period of time. Your respiratory system will start working harder as you begin to breathe faster and more deeply.
Equipment Required: Machine
- Step onto the elliptical trainer machine and choose the option you wish to use from the menu. You can select a set program or you can use the manual settings. You may be asked to enter your age and weight so that you can get an estimate of the number of calories you burn during your workout.
- Grasp the handles while using the machine. This feature helps by monitoring your heart rate to make sure that you are working out in your target range.
