Aw, man, I hope you found some great value in the low impact treadmill routine that I have posted over the last four weeks.  Not one to disappoint, I whipped together some more interesting cardio routines that will train your heart and give you an explosion of strength endurance, vitality and energy.  Of course, any good cardio program will do that, but what I intend to do is bring a GREAT cardio routine for you to implement that will maximize the most out of your time, keep things interesting and value your joints (aka low-impact routine).

What better way to make a routine low-impact than with the elliptical?!  If you have not had the luxury of using an elliptical, I highly advice you do so right away.  This piece of equipment gets sweat out of you quick and trains your heart effectively.  All while nurturing your joints from constant banging and rattling that you’d normally have from cardio-based programming.

 

I have attached a picture of the elliptical that I have established programming.  Now, that is not to say that you cannot use this routine with a different elliptical.  Just make the necessary modifications in the programming to suit the different brand or type of elliptical.  Use your best judgement.  My cardio routines will be challenging you on a scale of 0-10, about a 6-8.  Whew!
