Should You Choose a Running Machine or an Elliptical Trainer?

Whether you're stepping into the gym or setting up your basement for a daily home workout, you may find yourself bewildered by the choice of machines on offer. Should you choose the straightforward action of a running machine or treadmill, or the whole-body workout offered by an elliptical trainer? Either machine will give you a great workout and they both help you to burn off roughly the same amount of calories per hour. In this article, we'll look at the pros and cons of both machines so you can make an informed choice. Running machines A running machine or treadmill simply provides a way to walk or run in place at a steady speed. They don't offer additional exercise for your arms (although of course you can choose to run with small weights if you wish). You can set different speeds and, on most treadmills, you can change the incline of the machine to simulate walking or running up a hill.

The Ultimate Curved Treadmill Workout

A curved treadmill is a concave device with no motorization, which allows a user to walk and run as the foot strikes a propelling belt. This system is supposed to exploit horizontal and vertical contours that pull the belt down and back from the running or walking stride. This eliminates the need for electric motors. It is a great option for those that want to pace themselves manually. Quite a few systems can be bought today from top manufacturers. These include SpeedFit, Primal Strength, and SuRose. All of them offer the same thing, a comfortable running experience that improves a workout. How does it Work The secret behind this curved treadmill is the use of friction, gravity, and the forces generated when you run. During a downstroke, the weight and foot of the body pull the tread down and back and this is made possible by the curved shape of this machine. The point of contact is placed away from the centre While these differences are not quite visible, it is enough to deload the body with vertical reaction forces. It reduced the stress on the legs from vertical ground forces. The key to a great curved treadmill is ball bearings and reducing horizontal friction. Benefits of Using a Curved Treadmill A curved treadmill has [...]
