    fitness guide Starting Your Workout Begin and end each workout with a Warm Up / Down session - a few minutes of stretching to help prevent strains, pulls and cramps. • Make sure the nearest footplate to you is in the lowest position. • Grasp the handlebars securely with both hands. • Step on - put your feet into he pedals one by one. • Your body should be centred over the pedals. • Begin to stride, follow the rhythm of the machine. Finishing Your Workout 1. Slow your elliptical motion to a gradual stop. 2. Take your feet off the footplates one at a time. End each workout with a Warm Down session - a few minutes of stretching to help prevent strains, pulls and cramps. Correct Exercise Form • Stand tall and straight. Don’t slump - it will put unnecessary strain on your back and will result in less effective toning in the leg muscles. Make sure the machine is adjusted properly for your height so that you don’t have to slouch to reach the handlebars. Similarly, you should not be leaning on the handles or gripping them too tightly. • Stay relaxed. Keep your shoulders, arms, legs and hips loose and unlocked while using a cross trainer. Tension could lead to injury and will almost certainly make you sore. All Over Body Workout! • For an all over body workout, keep your hands on the moving arms.
  • Page 23: Heart Rate Training

    How Long Should I Exercise For? That really depends on your current level of fitness. If you’re just starting out on a new exercise program, you should start gradually and build up - do not try to do too much too quickly. 30 minutes, 3 times a week should be enough. Don’t push yourself too hard - you should never feel exhausted during or following exercise. Heart Rate Training To get the most out of your new piece of fitness equipment and see the best results from your training you should exercise at the right level of effort, and that means listening to your heart! Work out to a target heart rate means you can direct your workout to achieve different goals: Good health - For those wishing to improve quality of life and general well being. Your sessions will need to be done at an intensity of between 50 - 60% of your estimated maximum heart rate, should last about 30 minutes and can be done on most days of the week. Weight loss - To see a significant reduction in body fat, your sessions must be a little more intense - between 60 and 70% of your estimated maximum heart rate. These sessions can also be performed on most days of the week for up to 30 minutes. Improving fitness levels - These sessions should be performed at 70 - 80% of your estimated maximum heart rate and can also involve bouts of interval training that would have your heart rate peaking for short times near your maximum heart rate level. These are intense sessions and will require at least a 48 hour rest between sessions. Calculating Your Target Heart Rate First, you need to find your estimated maximum heart rate using the formula “220 minus your age in years”. So, if you are 35 years old your estimated maximum heart rate is: • 220 - 35 = 185 beats per minute (bpm) Next, to calculate your target heart rate, simply multiply your estimated maximum heart rate (185bpm) by the applicable percentage. So, if your goal is better health: • 185 x 60% = 111bpm NOTE: The important issue to remember with all estimated calculations is that they are just estimates - if you don’t feel comfortable exercising at your target then reduce it to a level you are comfortable with.
