Cardio is a term covering the low-intensity aerobic exercises. The most common types of cardio exercise are LISS (Low-Intensity Steady State) and HIIT (high-intensity interval training). LISS includes walking, jogging, swimming etc. all in the moderate speed. The elliptical machine offers a challenging workout that can be adjusted according to your needs. It is a motionless machine, which assists those exercising by simulating walking, running or even hill climbing. Most people are more used to treadmills, but the elliptical is actually lighter on the joints while still allowing for a killer workout. It engages the whole body and creates a flow. You are starting to sweat after 7 minutes and sweat always means effects. The rule is easy: If you don’t feel like you’re working, you’re probably not. Increase your speed and resistance level, push more. Keep they focus on the movement,  don’t read books, don’t look around. Use the handles for a total-body workout. Focus just on the movement. On the elliptical machine, power is distributed between the upper and lower body. Being distracted by a magazine or a TV show while exercising is a workout killer. One of the benefits of the elliptical is that you have a few variables you can adjust to make things more challenging, such as resistance, stride rate, and even elevation on some machines. When you use the elliptical machine on regular basis it improves your balance and mobility. The faster you can go, the more effects you'll work. It all depends on your effort. It’s great for your legs, core, and arms.
