Combine High Intensity with a Low Impact Workout
Lower body ellipticals offer lower body training so you can make the most of your workout. Lower body ellipticals typically target the glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, and anterior tibialis. When your thigh moves backward during the gliding motion, you will feel your glutes and hamstrings. Choose an elliptical trainer for cardio equipment that delivers a fluid, low-impact workout while cross training various muscle groups to offer a wider range of workouts focused on the lower body. A lower body elliptical is used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact.
