The One Cardio Machine That Won’t Help You Lose Weight

One of the most appealing machines in the gym right now is the elliptical trainer. You’ll find out though, that the elliptical is not very beneficial for calorie consumption and fat loss. A well respected magazine, Men’s Health, has come out very critically about the popular ellipticals, but there still isn’t much reason except for having bad knees for using one. Assuming each knee on your body is doing pretty well, you need to stay away from the ellipticals. Here are a few points about ellipticals that should change your mind.

To begin with, check out the results you are getting with your elliptical training: if it was so great, you’d get some reults after a while, wouldn’t you? The bottom like is that they can’t be trusted. Sure, they tell you all those calories were burned, but somehow your body always stays the same or gets worse.

Does it surprise you that the calorie count on the machines are inflated by about one-third? Another reason to eschew ellipticals is that they are too easy and you don’t feel like you’re doing anything. In fact, one Biggest Loser participant talked about how they are useless.

My rule of thumb is that if you’re not feeling like you’re working out, you’re not working out.

Right there you’ll find the 3rd reason to stay away from the ellipticals: the way people are. What I mean is that people are always looking for the easiest way to get what they want, and that’s why ellipticals are so popular.

Just think about what happens when there are an equal number of treadmills and elliptical machines: people gravitate to the ellipticals because they are easy.

The truth is that it’s going to take work to get that fat off your body and to keep it off. Looking for easy routes to your goals are going to disappoint you all the time.
