#1: What's Your Opinion Of Striders?

Posted on 2006-07-12 13:31:00 by windswept

They were formerly called air striders but are now often called
elliptical striders even though they really aren't the same thing as
the hugely-popular elliptical machines. Brookstone and Sharper Image
are two that I have been looking at.

Hard-core exercise people have scoffed at these striders in the past,
but do you think thay have any value for someone with a damaged knee
who can no longer run and who simply wants a daily 30-minute dose of
cardio? Do they hold up?

I don't want to invest in a regular elliptical. For one thing,
they're too damn heavy to move around. There's no health club nearby
for swimming, and the ski machine which provided a good workout has
developed serious mechanical flaws after just a few months. Your
opinions, please.

I'd find someone with a similar machine, if you can, and put it through
a 30-minute workout, testing yur heart rate several times during the
session. If you can get your heart rate up where you want it and keep
it there without getting too tired, going blind from boredom, etc., then
the machine is doing its job. Your legs and brain will know you're not
running, but your heart and lungs will get the same workout you would at
the same intensity on any other machine.

Over time, your body will adapt to the machine, as it would with
anything, so your best bet would be to find a new form of exercise to
swap in every 3 months or so.

Good luck!
