I use to HATE the elliptical. I didn’t think it was possible to get a good workout…I thought it was the “easy” workout. Then I learned something, my intensity lacked because I didn’t keep my RPM’s (revolutions per minute) up. This is key to the elliptical, same theory as when you run on the treadmill, the faster you make your legs run the harder the workout. So if you try this workout really focus on RPM’s, if you have to lower your cross-ramp/resistance in-order to maintain your RPM speed. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Side note: I prefer the elliptical that doesn’t require you to use your arms so your whole focus is on your legs.
