Home equipment can be divided into two types. Exercise equipment which can help strengthen muscle strength, and equipment for cardiovascular workouts that helps improve stamina and endurance. It is, as a rule, the power and equipment to work with weight. Cardiovascular equipment includes treadmills, rowing machines and, of course, an elliptical trainer.

Elliptical trainers can help you increase endurance for several reasons. While you work with your hands, you use more muscle groups on the legs. This means that the heart has to work harder to supply oxygen to the muscles of the arms. This is an advantage over treadmills, which primarily focused on his feet.

Most people think that the use of elliptical machines are more pleasant than the treadmill. Some complain that to improve your fitness using the treadmill is just boring. An elliptical trainer also has a number of built in programs that can add variety to your workouts.

This is a great way to chart your progress, using an elliptical trainer. You can make a record card to measure your heart rate at rest (RHR) and the types of exercises that you performed. You must record the distance travelled (if your elliptical allows this) and time spent. One of the indicators of the cardio fitness training is the length of time it takes for your heart to return to normal heart rate after exercise. You can also record this number on a regular basis. When the time is right, you need to rest and return to the normal rhythm of the workout.
