Combine leg strengthening and cardio, as once a minute, this Workout Booster cranks up the resistance by 10 levels for a vigorous, 15-repetition set. Make sure to hold the stationary handles to keep the muscular focus entirely on your lower body.
Enjoy full-body cross training as Muscle Endurance delivers a continual, alternating series of 1-minute work intervals (with a 4-level bump in resistance) and 1-minute rest intervals using combinations of the following prompts:
• Push-Legs – concentrate on pushing the pedals to focus on your quadriceps and glutes.
• Pull-Arms – concentrate on pulling the moving handlebars to focus on your biceps and lats.
• Push-Arms – concentrate on pushing the moving handlebars to focus on your triceps and chest.
• Reverse – pedal backward to switch up the muscular focus throughout your lower body.
• Fast – increase your speed.
• Resistance+ - work through a short surge of 3 extra resistance levels (7 levels higher than your base level).
The invigorating Chest Press makes it easy to incorporate a strength session for your chest, back and arms into your aerobic workout. Once a minute, this Workout Booster cranks up the resistance by 10 levels and prompts you to use only your upper body for a muscle-burning, 10-repetition set.
Fitness equipment typically offers heart-rate measurement, which is great for efficient weight loss, improving fitness for your favorite sport, exercising safely, and bettering your general cardiovascular health. Heart rate is monitored by contact and/or wireless telemetry. While the latter is considered more accurate, each system has advantages. Here’s a quick primer.
Contact heart-rate monitoring utilizes hand sensors in the handrail or handlebar. You grip the sensors for several seconds and your heart rate is shown on the console display in beats per minute. Contact heart rate is a good choice if you don’t have or don’t like to wear a heart-rate chest strap.
Wireless telemetry heart-rate monitoring utilizes a chest strap that you wear that reads your heart rate and transmits a radio frequency to show your heart rate on the machine’s console display. In addition to being more accurate, the wireless system is hands-free, and it allows your heart rate to be constantly displayed (since it doesn’t rely on sensors that you have to hold). This constant monitoring is especially useful for heart-rate control programs, in which the exercise equipment makes intensity adjustments to maintain or vary your heart rate at particular training zones.
