So, how can you burn more calories on elliptical machines? Surprisingly, you have more control over the calories you can burn on an elliptical than you think.

There are various ways you can amp up the number of calories burned and make the most use out of your time. 1. Increase Your Resistance. 5 Tips to Burn the Most Calories on an Elliptical November 13, 2016 Julie King Most of us know that eating too many calories causes weight gain, and the only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than we consume. With elliptical, you can either choose to have a low, medium, or high-intensity workout. A more intense pace workout means you will burn more calories than in low or mid-pace intensity exercise.

Low-intensity Pace: Many people tend to hop onto the elliptical machine with a very low intensity just to check the exercise off the list. The truth is. The more a person weighs, the more calories they will burn per minute at the same activity. A 200-pound (90.8kg) person on an elliptical at medium resistance for 30 minutes will burn 234 calories.

A 120-pound (54.4kg) person in the same scenario will burn 134 calories. Beginners tend to burn more calories — whether they’re on the treadmill or elliptical — than people who have trained their muscles to move efficiently. A woman weighing 150 pounds who does a moderate-intensity workout on an elliptical machine burns about 250 to 300 calories in 30 minutes. The more vigorous the exercise, the faster you burn energy in a 400-calorie workout.

To lose a pound per week, a typical approach is to burn an extra 500 calories per day. Burning 1,000 calories on an elliptical machine won’t necessarily result in this calorie deficit, but this workout will go a long way toward helping. A 200-pound person, according to HealthStatus, will burn 1,032 calories in an hour of using an elliptical. 10 Ways to Burn More Calories Than the Elliptical By Ainslie Forsum • Fitness March 29, 2013 at 2:00pm You hit the gym daily, eat right, and drink lots of water.

  • Hope you guys enjoy this video. Comment below and let us know what your favorite cardio machine is. Which type of cardio have you’ve seen the most results from?

  • I get shin splints and I don’t want to keep running that could lead to stress fractures..can anyone recommend a cardio machine and reps (if any)?

  • Good video. I don’t like doin treadmill. Got bad muscles. Can’t walk fast either. Due to immune disorder disease& steroids. I’m ok on cross trainer for 25 min

  • Wanna spruce up the heart thumping experience. After cardio. Do a set of 20 crunches, immediately do a set of 10 renegade rows (push-ups with dumbells, do a pushup, pull-up/row one dumbell. do a pushup, pull-up/row the other, alternate for set). 1-2 min. break, do another set. Shoot for 3 sets. At 2nd set, you’ll be visibly watching sweat drip off your head to the floor after every pushup from it’s intensity. Go!

  • 417 calories burned. I’m gonna get to 500 if it KILLS me�������� But, I’ve lost 5 lbs doing this workout twice a week. Love it!!! #plateaubroken

  • Well i kept my word i did all 3 sets. Am surprised that i am not tired after the workout but am drenched in sweat. Again i weigh 200-208 between those. If i can do it anyone who weighs less than me can do it

  • I was looking for treadmills but after seeing this I realized biking is what I love doing and a exercise bike in my room means I can watch YouTube, listen to music, wake up early and ride, stay up late and ride, face out to the window, Just workout anytime. I really would regret buying the treadmill. Thanks

  • I always do the stair master machine when I go to the gym. I actually enjoy it. My least favorite is the elliptical I do not really enjoy it, but I have it at home and use it when I can not go to the gym.

  • Awesome video, for me the key to consistency is diversity when working out. I’ll end up driving myself insane if I have the same routine week to week.

  • Remember to keep in mind that the person who is sprinting is also building muscle during his/her ten minute workout. Unless the walker is on a moderately steady incline for their 45 minute walk, he/she is not building muscle. Although the cardiovascular benefits may be good. That muscle build by the sprinter will help with development and fat loss. The results for walking and sprinting will not be equal

  • For every one saying this was goof it’s actually called hiit this is how it works and not with seconds but with full power and then catch your breath

  • My type of trainer, asking the right questions:…or which one do you hate the least? ��
    I bet he had some smart ass clients to be so quick with this follow up question ��

  • I would think the NUMBER 1 question needs to be ‘do you have any physical limitations’? If someone is unable to do high impact, this limits choices.

  • I need some advice I’m at a Plato I went for 212 to 195-194 and my diet changed
    Do I have to workharder, longer, more often and I weight train I don’t know what to do.

  • I have my own equipment rather than using a gym. I find the rower works best for me. On treadmills I have burned out motors twice (my rower doesn’t have one) and injured my knee once. The rower also seems better to me in that the machine provides resistance proportional to the amount of work you’re doing at any given time, rather than having to adjust speeds up and down like a treadmill. It’s also quieter and has been less expensive overall (two things not mentioned in the video).

  • Yoo jump rope dudes I ordered the get strong set. I’ve been using 5 dollar speed ropes and fully committed to cross rope. Cant wait to use them. So excited!!!

  • hello,Adrien. please advise. my weight is 200lbs and i have elliptical proform hiit
    could you please confirm that i must perform with no resistance at all? i mean…i’m doing workouts of about 40 minutes each given day at different hiit interval programs at resistance of 10-15 and at about 70-75 rpm per each interval. am i doing it correctly? please advise here or please email me: [email protected] gmail.com
    God bless

  • A well designed, bio-mechanically compliant elliptical cross fit machine is the best choice, u can burn more calories without a feel of exhaustion..!!

  • So the answer is the treadmill, but we all know that. So it comes down to what you want to use and are able to use concerning joint pain and punishment you are willing to put your body through. Just do ’em all or pick a few and don’t rely on just one type of machine, don’t get used to the same ‘ole routine, keep it fresh, weightlift, eat healthy, get enough of rest, gotcha….

  • Just started following you, you have encouraged and motivated more than anyone else. Just completed this workout and I must say this was the best workout I’ve ever had. When I was working out and felt like given up i listened to u and u inspired me to push through.. thank you thank you thank you. I will keep watching this video everytime I work out.

  • You need to tell people doing this workout to get a thorough Cardio checkup before undertaking this EXTREME workout. It’s very aggressive and severe on the heart and respiratory system.

  • I hate the treadmill, because im encouraged to up the intensity when im on it for some reason, and so I do it. Even though I hate it, however, the treadmill has proven to be the one device for me because I have been very consistent with it. With the bike and elliptical I struggle less with, but they bore me quick.

  • Fitness beginner here.. Won’t this eat away my muscles though? Such a high-calorie burning workout without any kind of resistance training?

  • I finished this for 3 days… goign to complete whole week. I used to do adrian’s 30 mins elliptical workout before. This one is harder and better. after this week imma do his 45 mins work out. One key point is… It starts working after 1 week and half. i mean after 1 week and half you suddenly will see obvious wight loss. that u will be surprised.

  • very detailed. although missed out the fact that HIIT (High Internsity Interval Training ) increases your chances of muscle burnout=injury. Best way is to have 5 days Steady state cardio and 2 days HIIT and gradually increasing the intensity and sessions of HIIT..
    Good Luck!

  • I did this for the first time today and I got through the whole workout:) I’m rlly proud of myself ��. If I can do it, you can do it as well!! My biggest problem was my period ����

  • Started before 2 days on sunday, weight is 108.2 kg, goal is far ahead gonna comment this just to stay motivated, if anyone wanna start with me just comment down and lets motivate eachother!!

  • “if u are in the gym right now people should be looking at you cause you are so fast”
    Literally stopped going so fast cause I was laughing then everyone looked at me.

  • Started this programme a month ago.. Derby.. UK.. so motivational.. this routine is hardcore but so satisfying once completed.. thankyou! ����

  • I walk 3 miles a day on the treadmill, burning about 450 calories. It works for me, everything else seemed like work, but I like walking.

  • I did this workout running yesterday and I did it twice…once in the morning and once in the evening. It’s a “gotta do it ” workout. These cardio workouts are so versatile… equipment or no equipment the sweat is absolutely the same. The work to rest ratio keeps the sweat going. It’s an absolutely awesome workout. Thank you Adrian!!

  • Thank you so so so much! I started doing this Workout as quarantine in my country started.. I lost 5 kilos in a month!! This is the lightest i’ve ever been!! Thank you!!!!

  • First time watching doing this workout. I sweat so much and I just barely completed the whole workout.. but I really needed to push myself. I even did this workout far away from everyone else at the gym bc I was afraid of how I might look when I did it..honestly it didn’t matter what other thought of me while I was doing this…bc when I left the gym..I was the one who was drenched after working hard and that’s all that mattered.. This workout was a game changer for me. Running on the treadmill with knee pain is not ideal..but this workout is IDEAL for my lifestyle and I am amazed on how much my body worked doing this exercise…when you feel like your gunna puke after an exercise..you know it’s working lol

  • Thank you so much for this wonderful video! You are so motivating! I didn’t know this type of video existed for an elliptical trainer. I stumbled upon yours accidently while looking for something else! I’m so glad I did.

  • This one was an achievable challenge with the variety of work/rest intervals. I really appreciate your driving voice through the intense periods you telling me I can gives me strength to keep going. I never thought I’d use an elliptical and feel the kind of effects I used to feel doing other high impact exercises. I’m restricted from them right now… but this is giving me hope I will get my fitness back.

  • i use a treadmill for about an hour or an hour and a half and then i go work on my upper body for another hour and after that i try to work on my pull ups and for the last thing i do is i go onto the stair stepper and then i leave but i think i can do better because i dont sweat too much so i started wearing hoodies to the gym to cause more sweat but still l barely sweat so i need help, if anyone has any tips for me id be more than happy to give them a go

  • My ymca trainer in Florida made me look like a complete idiot in every exercise. I’ve come across so much information online that is proven from studies that makes that trainers exercises wrong. No wonder why I had a neck strain and couldn’t move my neck in any direction much.

  • Moderation is perhaps the governing concept for a Christian view of bodybuilding/weightlifting. First Timothy 4:8 teaches, “For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come” (emphasis added). Physical fitness is important, and as this verse states, it does have some value. We are physical and spiritual beings, and the condition of the physical body undeniably can impact the spirituality of a person. Surely part of “glorifying God in your body” (1 Corinthians 6:20) is keeping it in reasonably good physical condition. Bodybuilding can definitely be a part of a Christian’s physical fitness program.

    At the same time, as with many things in this life, bodybuilding, if taken to the extreme, can become an idol. Eventually, a point is reached where there is no true value in adding more muscle. Bodybuilding/weightlifting can become an addiction and/or obsession. While this is much more often an issue with men, it can be an issue for women as well. Striving for bigger and stronger muscles, taken to the extreme, is nothing but vanity (1 Samuel 16:7; Ecclesiastes 1:2; 1 Peter 3:4). Once we allow our physical appearance to become more important than our relationship with God, it has become an idol (1 John 5:21).

    “So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). The key question is does bodybuilding/weightlifting glorify God? If it is done to increase fitness, strength, and tone, and thereby health, yes, it can be done for God’s glory. If it is done out of vanity and pride, or from an unhealthy obsession with getting bigger and stronger, no, it does not glorify God. How should a Christian view bodybuilding? “‘Everything is permissible for me’—but not everything is beneficial. “‘Everything is permissible for me’—but I will not be mastered by anything…. ‘Everything is permissible’—but not everything is constructive” (1 Corinthians 6:12; 10:23).

  • I am going to try this today I always want to push my self and since i weigh between 200-210 i think i hope i burn much more calories and have an afterburn as well. Today i ate a cup of rice with cornbeef just for that carbs for the fuel later

  • While I go to the gym 4 days a week for weights, I own an elliptical machine at home. That is my cardio. It has four fat-burning programs that change the resistance level every two minutes for a 30-minute session. I rotate through each program. I crank up the stereo in the room while I am on the elliptical and the time flies by. I’m 51, so it’s also much easier on my joints than a treadmill is.

  • Did this today again. And for dinner i think i ate around 700-800 calories between that range but tomorrow i am going to work all that out

  • Coming here from the “Lose 10 pounds this week” elliptical video to switch up my cardio. To my surprise, I did all 3 sets! If you have any doubts, these videos work!!

  • Too much BS on this video! In fact all the videos this dude makes are full of it! Just cut the crap and get to the point! Man oh man!

  • What level/incline are you working at? I did this program and, yes, it kicked my ass but it was nowhere close to 747 calories burned on my SoleE35 elliptical.

  • Hello what do you think about Dragon 3 bike? (12kg inertial) Do you think it is enough for a regular practice if I hope losing my cellulite with 30-45’ exercises?
    Or I should invest in Futura Care 3 (20kg inertial)?

  • I’m back and at it again Adrian. I started with the easier elliptical 30 min workout and worked my way up to the 40 min one. Now I’m doing this exercise like a pro. I look forward to showing you my results later. Thank you and God bless

  • Any tips on nutrition i cant stop night eating ��. I do this workout every other day but barely sew results cuz my nutrition is off track.

  • First time doing it burned out after two sets but I’m gonna keep pushing and do it all in one go! You’re amazing and so motivational, don’t think I would have lasted so long without you pushing me! Thank you so much. Drenched in sweat but feeling proud of myself because of it!

  • great video I like to do stationary bike rowing and stair master all at same cardio session how long should I use each machine it keeps me from getting bored 19m in oer machine?

  • I’ve been jumping rope for 2 years ( almost every day ). I got you guys in recommended and saw u skipping rope and i was like damn that looks cool and satisfying i wanna do that to. So i ordered a rope immediatelly 20$ on amazon. Im very lean today and i can jump for 15 minutes without problem. Thank you guys, peace be with you!

  • I have an elliptical machine and I Jump rope 4 times a week and I do the Elliptical 2 times a week. Great exercise machine. Jump rope is more fun.

  • Can i ask you which goes first to unlock? Is it footwork skills or the handwork skills? Like should i learn boxer skips/highknees etc. first or should i learn sideswipes/crisscross?

  • I just started Jumping 2 weeks ago, and I’m loving it. Started with 30 mins and I’m now doing 60 minutes of your workouts. I love it. My legs feel stronger than doing weights.

  • I love jumping my rope!!! It gives me so much energy and it has been helping with my anxiety also I am getting lean!! Where I can share my pics before /after? DO THE THING!!!

  • JR Dudes I have so much love for you guys but comparing jump rope calorie burn to other forms of exercise is just no comparison. The jump rope can promote a greater fat loss outcome even if it burns less calories because of how your body reacts being moved through space and the fat loss hormones it creates. That’s why sprinters and gymnast look muscular and lean regardless of their calorie burn. I think nothing compares to a 5 minute a day in a fasted state jump rope session for weight loss regardless of the calorie burn.

  • Not first?


  • Can someone buy me a jump rope? I’m kinda broke ����
    Atm i have a cheap $3.99 jump rope and since i started jumping I’ve hit a new low,, I started about 1 month ago
    #dothething #JRD

  • First of all; it is about you losing Calories/Weight I am not worrying about people looking at me shit & secondly they asses should be working on their own Damn weight loss & Calories to lose instead of looking & Judging people on how they look working out fast & outrage get on what the Hell to do next on the elliptical instead you telling people to look at people looking at them on how they look working out.

  • I was doing jump rope pretty good and had lost a lot a weight too…but after sm while I severely injured my knee…and now I’m not able to do even waking….so I suggest everyone to do jump rope on a soft surface…

  • Surely to fully compare you’d need to get to same heart rate range and maintain it on both exercises?
    Jump rope had higher peak and avg heart rate so all this showed is that you were working harder on jump rope.

  • Excellent workout day 2, would prefer it with your voice only and not the music, also would love it if you said go each time we start a new set and I listen to this whilst my phone is in my pocket so it can be difficult to know when you have started to workout again, most of the time you do say but a few times you missed out saying it.
    However thank you for the work out, started yesterday and love it.. managed to lose 100 calories yesterday and stayed till the end even though I was feeling sick after the first set.. second day it feels much easier. ����

  • I lost a good amount of weight from jump roping. I didn’t have a scale so I didn’t realize how much I lost until I went to back school and people kept asking me. I was just like what the hell are you talking about. So I weighed myself and it turns out I lost 20lbs. It only took about a month and a half. 1 hour a day every night.

  • I love the ELLIPTICAL. It’s my go to cardio when I’m in the gym. Becuase I go based the music the resistance change. If the music is faster music, the resistance is low…. if it’s the music is slow, the resistance is high. Jump rope is my number one favorite form of cardio. I think cardio Burn will be based on your intensity on either machine. But jump rope is so fun that you’re going to put more effort therefore Burn more calories. Great vid and comparison

  • The Whoop looks like it might be the best fitness tracker out there and I was excited about it until I found out about the mandatory membership fees. Oh well, I guess I’ll just keep myself fitness tracker less.

  • I am not surprised that jump rope would burn more calories Plus I think it would transfer over to athletic ability much better than the elliptical trainer. Personally I don’t care for cardio machines accept the treadmill. Great video is always!

  • I use a heavy Boxing Rope, I burn about 200 calories in 10min of Fast Jumping. Plus Jumping rope transfers into Athletic Ability apose to the Elliptical Machine. I would do the jump rope unless there is a medical reason you need the machine. Appreciate you guys, see ya on the next one.

  • Well even if some other exercise burn more calorie skipping is still the most easiest, you don’t need much equipment or space. And finally it’s gets more enjoyable as we learn more tricks.

    So in the end it does not matter because jump rope is still the best.

    But still martial arts is great too if you want both the muscle and flexibility.

  • I got to get my double unders down but I jump rope about 10 min a day after my main workout of strength training or another form of cardio

  • I have been followig you since you lived in Colombia (Medellin), that’s when I started Jump Roping, however on this video, I mix both exercises, eliptical for warming up before jumping rope, jumping rope as the main exercise for Calorie burn, I believe to myself jumping rope is much more effective

  • Great, informative video as usual guys. I’ve got the ‘get lean’ Crossrope set and want to know if the Whoop is available in the UK any help?

  • I weigh 209 pounds, and I calculated the RMR. It was 2050 calories for me. I eat 1400 daily and do 40 minutes of elliptical and 500 jump ropes. I only lose about 1 pounds a week ��

  • Great video! I just started my youtube channel vlogging my fitness journey! feel free to check it out and we can be youtube friends!!! Keep up the great content!
