Exercise machine - the elliptical
We have a treadmill at home and even though I use it, it is not best fat burning exercise because I don't run on it. The elliptical on the other hand will burn off calories at a rate of up to 300 every 5 minutes. When I use the elliptical at the gym I can only stay on if for no more than 10 minutes at a time since it wipes me out. If you don't stand on it correctly then your back will hurt so you need to find your center of gravity when using it. Try leaning different ways on it while using it to see which is the best position for you. The wrong position will not only hurt but will deter you from going back on it.
