Help! How Many Revolutions in a Mile on an Elliptical Trainer?
Thursday, April 23, 2009
Ok, Im a little upset this evening. No, Im ticked and that is not the word I want to use. I walked in for my weigh in this evening really pumped and I stepped on the scale and I about fell over. I gain .6 lbs. I dont know how it happened but it did. I wanted to through it against the wall. I just about walked out too. I was shaking. After I got ahold of myself I explained to her that I had been working out 100 minutes a day mostly on the Elliptical 5 days a week. Im taking in about 1300-1500 calories. I guess I should be taking in more calories but I just not hungry.
I got a new Elliptical. Its a Cheap one From Walmart to start off with. A Gold Gym Stride Trainer 300
love it but I hate the distance read out on the LCD screen. it reads in revolutions and not in miles. I go about 1200 revolutions in about 28 minutes 3 times a day, 5 days a week. Its frustrating because I dont really know how far Ive gone. My stride is set at 18 inches. I try to keep the resisitance at 3 for most of my workout but sometimes I go down to 2. If anyone can shed some light on this I would appreciate it?
