Cardio

Cardio Trifecta

Bored with your same old machine routine? Switch things up with these three thought-provoking programs.

Cardio is a bore. There, we said it. It’s what you’re all thinking anyhow. Fortunately, you can reignite your interest — and your fat-burning potential — with some creative programming tweaks. Get your body and your mind back in the game and show those machines who’s boss.

Bike

Stationary bikes have been around since the dawn of time (well, at least since Jane Fonda sported striped leg warmers), and pedaling on the road to nowhere can be tedious. This 20-minute fat-blasting routine uses resistance and RPM to engage your mind as well as your muscles.

The Gist: With each time increment, increase the resistance on the bike. This translates to either a full turn on the Spinning bike dial or a full digital increment on an electronic panel. Try to keep your RPMs in the recommended range. This will be an über-challenge as the resistance gets harder!

The Gist: Every stair stepper is different, but start with a low to moderate step speed for your particular model. Remember: The higher the number, the faster the pedals drop or the more quickly the stairs turn over.

The Gist: Use the incline and the speed on the treadmill to simulate a hilly running course. Use your arms to power up the hill when the going gets tough.
