There are only two kinds of exercise: a) cardio and b) muscle building. All other kinds of exercise fall into these two categories. (I did have had one doctor try to tell me that stretching is another kind of exercise but stretching is not exercise).
The never-ending question in exercise circles is: should you do cardio or lift weights to build muscle?
One of the very first questions I asked myself when I was idea of Myoride Exercise machine was: What is the most important exercise, muscle building or cardio?
Yes, they are both important. But if I were going to pick one I would say that cardio was most important.
But, what if you could do both muscle building and cardio AT THE SAME TIME? No, not exactly muscle building - muscle toning.
You actually get both muscle toning and cardio at the same time when you workout on the Myoride exercise machine. Wouldn't you like to do a full-body workout in 7 minutes, 3 of which you're actually working out, and be done with it?
Muscle toning and cardio. It is not a question of which one to do because we're going to both. For many people it's a matter of getting into a program and getting started. For those who are already in a program it's a matter of constantly increasing muscle tone and cardio function. There is no end to improvement working out on the machine!
Look at all the major muscles involved in the workout...
The best way you get a cardio workout is to exercise the most muscles simultaneously. And, because the major muscles of the arms and legs are taken through near-complete range of motion against resistance you are getting muscle toning.
You get both muscle toning and cardio. What could be better than this?
