Working out on those elliptical trainers at the gym can be fun, especially if you are listening to music or an audiobook on your iPod. But after a while, the routine can get stale. Many people only use their legs and just let their arms "hang on for the ride", but this is not an effective workout.
I recently started mixing things up by doing interval or hill training and using my arms and legs on the peaks and focusing on my arms only and letting my legs "hang on for the ride" when I hit the valleys. It's great arm training and it keeps your heart rate up for the whole workout.
I drink a bottled protein shake on the way to work each morning, I have recently started to focus in on shaking it up...using each arm and varying the way I shake the bottle. It's probably silly but I figure something is better than nothing...plus, I think my bat wings are getting smaller! 334
