Weight Loss and Exercise – Which Machine Helps Burn the Most Calories?
This entry was posted on February 4, 2015.
Once you have decided to go on an exercise regime to lose weight, you need to decide which one is right for you. Most people want to start shedding those pounds from the minute they get on the machine, and that is not an option. Losing weight takes time, and even working out on a machine may mean that that you have to wait a good few months before you start to see results.
One of the best calorie burners is said to be the bike where you can burn up to 500 – 1000 calories per hour depending on the intensity of the routine that you choose.
The rowing machine can help burn about 1000 calories per hour because of the upper and lower body movement. However, rowing for an hour without scenery around you can be boring, so change your routine to faster and slower rowing to bring a little bit of change.
The treadmill burns about 300 – 400 calories per hour if you are walking on it and a good 600 – 1200 if you are running on it. The idea behind this is that we are proficient at walking as we do it from an early age, and thus, we cannot use it much as a cardio workout.
The elliptical, a wonder of the machine with its high-tech and sophisticated components, only manages to burn 600 calories an hour. It may go up to about 800 if you are using the ones that have the handles for the arms as well.
The Adaptive Motion Trainer and the Lateral X are capable of giving you a massive 800 -1200 calories an hour, depending again on the intensity of the machine. Both of these are great options for cardiovascular exercise equipment.
Whichever machine you choose, the exercise must be done with some intensity to burn the calories. There is no fast track to weight loss no matter which machine you work on. To make your mind up about a machine visit a Fitness Expo Store in Metairie, Baton Rouge, Shreveport, Mandeville, and Kenner in Louisiana and in Jackson, Mississippi and let the dedicated staff help you to do so.
