Fitness Town Fit-tip: Cybex Arc Trainer Training Tips

A Cardio machine that thinks it’s a Strength device

Want to get a great muscular strength and endurance workout? Try using the Arc Trainer. Set the incline level to 7 and get your stride rate up to 120 strides per minute. Next, increase the resistance as high as you can while maintaining your stride rate. Try to stay at that workload for 2 – 4 minutes, and then rest for a minute. Repeat four times. Do this a couple of times each week, and after 4 weeks, you’ll notice a difference in your leg strength and endurance.

Work Out Intensity

The human body is designed to work in short bursts. You can lose more weight, improve your cardiac function, and can even help modulate insulin levels when you perform brief, high intensity, exercise intervals. The next time you’re on a bike or Arc Trainer, try pushing really hard for 10 to 30 seconds and then go slow for the next minute.

Burn Calories

Getting a great figure means burning calories, so don’t forget your cardio. Try using the Total Body Arc Trainer for twenty minutes. Set it on manual and don’t forget to enter your body weight and get your stride rate up to 140 strides per minute. On the Arc, you can focus on either your legs or your arms. Try pushing and pulling very hard with your arms for a few minutes several times during your 20 minutes – you’ll get an extra strength workout for your chest, back, and arm muscles.

Little Black Dress Ready

Select the Interval Program. Set the resistance level so it is challenging to maintain 100 strides per minute during the peak of the interval – really push yourself! During the low levels just coast and then crank it up again when resistance goes up! Decrease the resistance level if you start to feel too out of breath.
