3 Elliptical Workouts: From Total Body to High Intensity

Pin It

I do love the ellipticals and that's because they are a great for a total body workout and easy on your knees. I have designed for you three exciting workouts to burn more calories, tone and lift the booty and sculpt your legs, arms and abs in just 35 minutes. Whether you're a beginner, looking for a high-intensity interval workout, or want to challenge different muscles groups, there's an elliptical workout for you.


I use these workouts after weight or if I just need a toning day using a machine I go through these workouts twice. :) HAVE FUN!

Booty Workout 
Note: focus on keeping your heels down for a better BOOTY Workout

Core Workout
Note: Don't hold onto the handles until you are going at a fast pace. Just by learning to balance on the peddles you will get a better core workout.

  1. This is great! I've always wondered how effective of a workout I get using the elliptical so I tend to avoid it and go for the treadmill instead. But that can get boring every time so I'll definitely be trying these! Thanks!

  3. I do almost all my cardio on the Elliptical, because of a severe injury to my L leg. Thanks. But none of the ones at my gym have an incline? And they have nice stuff. Any other advice for that problem?
