The Positives And Negatives With The Treadmill Machine And The Elliptical

By James Slaughter

A big part of my workout routine happens to be cardiovascular exercise. I’ll typically spend a bit less than an hour on this.

There are many reasons that I enjoy doing this. Aside from the health benefits and the fact that it’s a surefire fat burner, I experience some other benefits as well. Most notably, I simply feel better and more productive throughout the course of any given day whenever I’ve run.

After listing those benefits, I have to wonder why I don’t exercise like this every day!

As far as my cardio activity is concerned, there’s one issue that I’ve wondered about for a very long time. I’ve never known whether the treadmill or the elliptical was a better means of working out, but I’ve learned a lot along the way. Which machine wins at the end of the day?

Let’s discuss the advantages that each machine brings to the table. From there, you might have a better idea as to which is the more appropriate fit for your situation.

As far as the elliptical is concerned, there’s definitely some appeal here. Here are a few of the strengths involved with this machine.

People really enjoy the fact that it’s a low impact machine, meaning that your knees, legs, and back don’t feel the impact that they normally would if they were running on the ground. If you’re concerned about the durability of these body parts, you’ll like the elliptical.

I’m also a big fan of the fact that you can add resistance to your workout, meaning that there’s a better opportunity to build leg strength via this means of exercise.

As far as the treadmill goes, there’s a clear advantage here. The elliptical is nice, but some people simply prefer to run. You’re not getting the true running simulation with the elliptical that you will with the treadmill, and this must be considered.

Moreover, a treadmill run will usually be faster than an elliptical workout assuming you’re traveling the same distance and burning the same amount of calories. If time is of importance to you, this goes a long way.
