Elliptical Glider

Classification

Bearing: Weight
Impact: Low

Instructions

Preparation

Step on pedal platforms and grasp handle rails. Select "quick start" or enter program.

Execution

Pedal forward by placing weight on one foot while allowing the other foot to move forward on opposite pedal. Alternate with opposite side until momentum allows continued forward rotation.

Comments

Avoid transferring body weight onto handle bars. Pedaling backwards can be performed for variety or for active recovery. Intensity can be altered by resistance/speed (strides per minute). Lower resistance allows for greater speed which increases exercise intensity. Also see Elliptical Trainer.
