The only way to know the accurate calories that you are actually burning on any cardio machine like the Curve, the elliptical trainer, row machine, or bike is to wear a heart rate monitor with a chest strap. It actually reads the accurate number of calories you are burning. Do you realize most cardio machines over estimate the calories burned by 30 to 40%? A machine will estimate calories burned based on a 150 pound person if you press quick start. In addition, even if you put in your own weight, the machine is off.
Race season has come upon us quickly. Jogging, cycling, and swimming are all great sports individually and combined in many ways. They are also sports performed in one plane, or direction, which can lead to increased risk of injury or discomfort in the ankles, knees, hips and back. Cross training in multiplanar motions, or many directions, can reduce the risk of pain and discomfort and even injury. Good luck out there this season, have fun and stay balanced.
