Picture #1 – Set the crossramp on 6 or higher and pick a resistance level that challenges you (you’ll find both the cross ramp and resistance level selection on the dashboard of the elliptical trainer), go forward for 2 minutes as fast as you can. Picture #2 – Continue to go forward for the next 2 minutes while holding on to the side bars. Drop your butt, bend your knees, keep your back straight and continue at the same speed as before. For pictures #3 and #4 – Repeat the same as above for 2 minutes for each cycle except change directions (go reverse). Rest for 1 minute and repeat the circuit for 30 minutes.

Another good circuit training on an elliptical – Set the crossramp on 6 or higher and pick a resistance level that challenges you. Holding on to the side bars try to reach 500 strides in 3 minutes. Once you reach 500 strides, rest for 1 minute. Repeat the circuit for 30 minutes.
