With the alarming rate of health issues associated with a sedentary
lifestyle like lack of exercise and poor nutrition, many people
are starting to become more health conscious nowadays. Let's face
it, your health is of vital importance, without it, you can't
live your life to the fullest. If you're just starting to go to
the gym and want to burn calories for a slimmer physique, it's
good to have some knowledge what kind of cardio machines you can
use so that you can burn the most calories. Here is a list of
cardio machines that burn the most calories.
- A treadclimber is the first on my list because I consider it
the king of cardio machines. This innovative cardio machine incorporates
three types of motion in one movement notably running on a treadmill,
using a stair climber and using an elliptical trainer. By merging
three motions in one movement, you're actually benefiting from
a triple workout which means you will burn more calories. Even
just a walking workout on a treadclimber can burn quite a good
amount of calories. For typical users, a treadclimber can allow
you to burn between 300-500 calories in just 30 minutes of usage.
You can train 30 minutes a day, 3 times per week to get some great
results. Of course, results will vary from individual to individual
as getting results on a treadclimber depends on the person's weight,
exercise difficulty and time spent.
burning calories, a treadclimber provides a great cardiovascular
workout and one major benefit of using a treadclimber is it's
easy on the knees and ankles as the landing is softer as compared
to a treadmill for instance.
- A treadmill is still one of the most commonly used cardio machine
at the gym for good reasons. Many people prefer running indoor
and a treadmill is really convenient for that purpose. A treadmill
also burns a good amount of calories. For a person weighing 200
pounds and running at 4 mph for 30 minutes, you can expect calories
burned to be around 216 which is not bad. If you adjust the difficulty
to just 5% incline, that would give a whopping 330 calories burned.
people like to adopt the High Intensity Interval Training(HIIT)
on a treadmill. This training method consists of alternating the
running speed from fast, moderate to slow for a couple of sessions
and it has been proven to burn more calories than running at a
steady average pace.
Bike - Cycling provides many cardiovascular benefits and can
also help you burn a hefty amount of calories when done right.
If you use to cycle leisurely, it's time to up the intensity.
To give you an idea how many calories you can potentially burn
on a stationary bike, let's take the example of a 200 pound person
cycling at an average speed of less than 12 mph for 30 minutes.
The total calories burned can be around 336.
