I tried the elliptical and found I could only do about 3 minutes the first week and was huffing and puffing.......and then 5 minutes and then 10 and so it takes time to build up endurance. I have not been on it since I had back surgery in May but I do walk around our Sr. Park and feel great. CURVES has all hydraulic machines and they are safer for me.
Do any of you use an elliptical for exercise on a regular basis ? Does it every bother your back ? I was riding a regular bike and after about 3 days it was causing pain and numbness. I thought I would try the elliptical ????
