Effective Use of Elliptical Bike for Losing Weight

Last Updated on

I wonder why everyone is in a hurry and yet no one reaches on time?! Well, I guess the “Planet Earth” has crash landed on something which runs out of time, all the time!

Despite the busy schedule, we should never ignore what the body is trying to convey to us. Restlessness, insomnia, inactiveness, dizziness, obesity, and zillions of other disorders are the true signs which are a tiny trailer of your future health breakdown.

Obesity is the fundamental cause which is the host of most of the health issues. Thus, if you are putting on weight for no reason, then, take the warning seriously. Plan a simple routine which includes a minimum of 40-60 minutes of simple exercise, followed by a healthy diet and a good sleep time. This lets you feel light and active throughout the day!

We are so much addicted to being “mechanical” that we often forget or mostly ignore to meet our daily needs which leads to a gradual health breakdown.

If you are tired of the name “exercise”, then, you should definitely try the Elliptical trainer. An elliptical trainer is the one which totally makes the “exercise hour” as a “Fun hour”! You will be surprised to know the advantages.

If followed and appropriately done, you can thank me later! Here you go:

The flat feet!

The silliest mistake most of us do is, while exercising, unknowingly, we are so focused on our toes that we often tend to raise our heels off the machine. This might stretch your caloric time a further more!

If you make a practice of placing your heels and toes on the machine during the entire workout session, you can feel the muscles getting activated throughout the legs. Thus, you can quickly build muscles and burn the calories with ease!

Resistance matters!

Try playing with the elliptical trainer’s resistance levels. You have the complete right to move the resistance up or down! It is your call to choose your level of resistance. You can play with it by moving it up and down during your regular intervals. Yes, I agree with the point that this might invite the sore legs. But, as you know, resistance helps you build the muscles which in turn helps you in burning more amount of calories! Sore legs? Worth it! Totally!

Better be focused

Yes, most of the people opt for the elliptical trainers as they offer the attractive advantages such as watching TV, reading novels while you perform the exercise! But, to be clear, the TV and other related stuff are often termed as a “distraction” especially when carrying out your exercise. Thus, try to step up on the elliptical trainer which is right opposite to the mirror. Therefore, your cardio buddies feel super enthusiastic and definitely perform in a better way!

The sweaty breaks

I am sure you love to take breaks while performing the exercise. Here’s the thing. You can switch for the Tabata which is a workout style. Tabata lets you reap the advantage of the “After workout” period. This involves pedaling continuously for 20 seconds and then switching to a lower-intensity for 10 seconds.

Then, by repeating this cycle for 8 times at a stretch, you can make it for 4 minutes! If you love challenges, then, it is totally your call to push yourself! You can practice 2 more minutes of lower-intensity and then switch the “4-minute” game again! Phew, I think I burnt a few calories while explaining this whole scenario! Pretty effective!

Ignore the “Fat-burning” zone!

As you know, the elliptical trainer screen displays the “Fat-burning” zone. It is a natural human tendency which grabs your attention only on the screen. This lets you burn the calories more from the fat as compared with that of the carbs. But, when you strive hard to focus only on the exercise, you will definitely witness huge calorie burn overall! Once you shift your focus from the “Fat-burning” zone, you will be surprised by the way you feel acquainted to the intensities you never thought of giving it a try!

Pulse your arms!

Yes, the very crucial thing to focus on while exercising is to have a proper balance. Of course, we make use of our hands to hold the handle firmly ensuring an appropriate balance. Along with your core, shoulders, knees, and back being toned up, don’t you love the idea of your arms getting toned up too? Hell yes! Here goes the thing: Once you ensure a proper balance and if you are comfortable enough to press and pull your arms while exercising, you can achieve the whole body workout at the same time! Thus, you can burn out the calories with ease.

In this robotic world, everybody is in a rush idolizing the so-called mechanism “The time” to chase their dream goals. If you focus on keeping yourself fit and healthy in the first place, then, you can be sure of achieving the deadliest dreams possible! The body demands the exercise. It all begins and ends with the condition of your body! Healthy? Filthy? Your choice! Once you know the proper usage and the right way to exercise, you are just one step behind an entirely different life! The only thing I can suggest to you is- Be better every day! So, stop chasing and start achieving!
