High Intensity and Low Impact for a Total Body Workout
Total body ellipticals offer an effective full body low impact workout that is easy on the knees and joints. Total 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 total body elliptical is used to simulate stair climbing, walking, or running without causing excessive pressure to the joints, hence decreasing the risk of impact.
