Instructions

Preparation

Step on pedal platforms and grasp handle bars on each arm lever. Select "quick start" or enter program.

Execution

Pedal forward while alternating the arm levers back and forth.

Comments

Pedaling backwards can be performed for variety or for active recovery. Intensity can be altered by resistance/speed (strides per minute). Lower resistance allows for greater speed which increases exercise intensity. Also see Elliptical Trainer.
