Elliptical Workout | 30 Minutes

This Elliptical Workout Is Just as Effective as the Treadmill

Sometimes, you head to the gym craving a treadmill run and arrive only to find all the machines full. Bummer! But remember: there are some creative ways to work around this situation. Instead of throwing in the towel and heading straight for the sauna, try this elliptical workout instead. To make this joint-friendly machine feel like running, don't hold the handles and pump like you do when you're running. Going hands-free on the elliptical is great for your core, and it might help you work on evening out your stride. We did throw in some reverse action at the end of the workout for your cool down.

30:00-35:00 7-5 Backward

My elliptical is set at an incline of 20 degrees. Feel free to play around with the incline level, but keep it at least 10 degrees.

This is also a great cardio workout if your knees have been bothering you while running or you're coming off a hamstring strain.
