How to Lose Belly Fat With These 7 Cardio Workouts
Nashville exercise physiologist Kathy Alexander agrees: But how do you know which machine is likely to feel right to you? Here's what you can expect from the most popular cardio machines out there, along with some tips on getting the most out of your workout. Here's the lowdown on what you can expect from some of the machines you're likely to find at your local gym. The treadmill burns the most calories of any of the cardiovascular machines available at most gyms, says Alexander.
You can expect to burn about calories per mile, walking briskly. Stamford notes that a treadmill can be adapted to many different fitness levels by increasing the speed from walking to running or by adjusting the incline. But even walking may be too much for someone who is overweight and has joint pain. Every time your foot hits the ground, says Alexander, "the impact forces are 3. Since a treadmill is moving under you, the impact may be slightly less than that.
One more thing to keep in mind: Treadmills can pose a real balance challenge for new exercisers or those who haven't worked out in a while, says Matthew Vukovich, exercise physiologist and associate professor at South Dakota State University. These machines pack a little less punch on the joints, and either can be a good alternative to the treadmill, says Vukovich.
Because you use them in a standing position, you're using lots of muscle mass, so the calorie burn rate is still pretty high. Elliptical machines with arm components can further increase the numbers of calories you burn, says Stamford. All our experts agree that the stationary bike offers the workout with the least impact on the joints. People with knee pain are often steered toward these bikes, since the impact of body weight is not a concern as it is on a treadmill, elliptical trainer, or stair stepper.
But to avoid knee strain, you must make sure the bike is adjusted to fit your body, Vukovich says. Most people sit too low, meaning their knees flex too much as they pedal. This can put too much pressure on the knee and result in soreness, warn Vukovich.
The stationary bike is a less intense calorie-burner than some of the other machines. You have to eat fewer calories than you burn. Some even kick up your metabolism. So take this list when you go to the supermarket:.
Inexpensive, filling, and versatile, beans are a great source of protein. Beans are also high in fiber and slow to digest. That means you feel full longer, which may stop you from eating more.
Start a meal with a cup of soup, and you may end up eating less. You want to keep the soup to to calories a serving. So skip the dollops of cream and butter. Want to enjoy chocolate between meals?
