What does /fit/ think of the elliptical trainer? Everything I've read says it's a piece of shit, but now I see that Rogan is on one 45mins a day. He doesn't strike me as the type to use something that doesn't work.
Anyway, general cardio thread. I run 3 miles a day on the treadmill. What is the god tier cardio machine?

elliptical is great for cardio desu, shouldnt use the treadmilll everyday, joints desu senpai
>>
>using a treadmill
Fucking go outside
>>
>>35644891

>>35644876

>>
>>35644801
I just started using it for the same reason famm u jre and tfatk at the gym too?
>>
Guys what machine is best for HIIT? My gym only has rowing machines, treadmills, ellipticals, and these horrible bike machines.
>>
>>35644801
The only cardio machine that I like is the rowing machine. Other then that I just run (outside), because that's one of the main functions of the human body. If you can't run 10 km in an hour, you are really not fit at all.

>being that disgusting guy who constantly stares at women in the gym
>"oh, I do it in a way they can't ever tell"
They can fucking tell, everyone else can tell, and it's just sad
>>
>>35644917
can't podcast at the gym, need music

>>35644946
I'm behind them on the treadmill, I do it in a way they can never tell

>>35644940
what sort of surface do you run on? I've heard bare foot on the beach is pretty good
>>
>>35644933
The bike machines are actually good for HIIT, especially if you crank that resistance up.
>>
>>35644980
You literally just said what every creepy guy you've ever seen at the gym drooling over some woman says
>>
>>35645014
I literally just copied what you wrote, chill brah
>>
>>35644891
I watch revision videos on the built in screen whilst I run, I can't do that outside, I like to try and be more productive, plus I'll use the sauna after anyway, why go outside instead?

They're only good for when you got a running injury (e.g. shin splint or hamstring injury). Get the fuck outside and run. Unless it is -17F outside, outside is better.
>>
>>35645059
but this:
>>35645054
>>
>>35645059
concrete, grass or beach?
>>
I do a 10, 20 and 50km ride every week in between my lift days. Also random jogs if I feel like it
>>
>>35645059
Also dat vitamin D you get from the sun

Thinking about throwing down for this

I have a specialized crosstrail bike I bought a few years back, still in fantastic condition. Should be a nice easy way to get cardio in at home. Opinions?
>>
>>35645140
Do it, bargain
>>
The ONLY reason why I use the treadmill is because the ellipticasl are in front and cardio bunnies use them and show off their round arses.
>>
>>35644946
Yeah but you can't call a guy a creep for looking straight ahead when he's on the treadmill.
>>
>>35645216

How does it feel to be promoting rape culture?
>>
>>35645238
Feels great.
>>
>>35645238
kinda horny
>>
>>35645238
Sounds pretty hot tbqh senpai
>>
>>35645232
>straight ahead
Then you'd be looking at their backs or the back of their head. Unless you're a manlet

I do music for lifting and high intensity but lsd cardio I need something that takes up my interest
>>
>>35645014
It's okay.
I do it in a way they can't tell.
>>
>>35645487
Makes sense, I'm just waiting for songs to end so I'm closer to finishing. Might try some podcasts now.

>>35645251
lol
>>
>>35645140
I have one sempai.
Love it. Wouldn't trade it for anything. Lost about 50lb so far. You can go harder and longer since you're not outside with stop signs, red lights people and cars and shit. Highly recommend.

>>35645322
Was thinking about just tossing a box fan in front of me. Its also going into a room that's uninsulated and basically outside. Nice and cool. Definitely going to consider it though.
>>
>>35644801
True story, OP:
Many years ago when I was really fat I used an elliptical all the time because my knees were fucked from being a fatass. It fucked up the mechanics of my stride because it was locked into the stride of the machine. It took me years to learn to run properly once I wasn't fat anymore because I kept taking these relatively tiny little strides (I'm 6'4"). I'd stay away from them entirely if I was you, unless your knees are so fucked that you can't run at all. But as soon as you can get away from it and run outside like a normal person, you'll thank me later.
