Hi I'm Dave Dubail with Dubail Fitness Institute in Miami, Florida. In this clip, I'm going to show you how to lose weight on an elliptical machine. Elliptical machines are great, especially if you are overweight or have knee problems. The no impact on the, it's a no impact machine. So really anybody can use this machine. There's no excuse that you have bad knees where many people don't like to run, because of the impact running can cause on the knees. On this there is a couple of different programs you can use. One is a nice steady state and you go for twenty to forty minutes. Elevating your heart rate to about sixty five to seventy five percent of your max heart rate. Or you can put it on the fat burning mode that most machines have. And you can use the arms too on some of the more advanced pieces. So it's really a good, good piece to get your heart rate up and keep everything moving. So you can really pick up the speed, go hard, get your interval sprints in which is also a great way to burn fat, get the heart rate up and then bring it back down for conditioning. An example of how the elliptical works is they all have a face plate, they have different times, you can do a quick start, and that would be just a steady state exercise. And they also have different modes, you can choose manual, random, intervals, hills so it simulates going up a hill. 10Ks, fat burners, cardios, different heart rates. Different machines have different things and there's also different programs for arm blasters, to use this. Which really gets the whole body and that's another great thing about the elliptical as opposed to a tread mill. It will really use all of the muscles in the body. So this is a great piece, remember to include it into your cardio program and once again this is Dave Dubail thank you for watching.
