For the elliptical lovers...how about we post some of our records to keep things interesting? After all...no matter how dedicated we are, the elliptical CAN get boring at times.
From my experience a decent elliptical user can do at least 1000 strides, 100 calories in 7 minutes or less.
Now I know each machine is ever so slightly different from the next...but for the Precor models...they are pretty much on par with maybe 5 calorie variation at most.
Here's mine (Precor EFX 576i)**
-=[28 Minute Time Attack]=- 432 calories (resistance 10/incline 18)
-=[35 Minute Time Attack]=- 541 calories (resistance 10/incline 18)
-=[60 Minute Time Attack]=- 920 calories (resistance 10/incline 16) (vid below)
**btw I'm working on my incline...I'm maxed at 20 now...if I set the incline to 10...I'm even faster
