Crawford says that using an elliptical machine prevents you from finding resistance while raising your heart rate. You are usually slowed down on the elliptical by the resistance.
Rowing is a better option than wasting time on the elliptical. You may increase the resistance and intensity while raising your heart rate by rowing.
Crawford also proposes substituting pull-ups for the lat pulldown machine. The best course of action is still to perform assisted pull-ups.
"Pull-ups are more useful and will engage more muscles. Compared to a lat pulldown, a pull-up requires far more of your core "She clarifies.
Crawford claims that while standard pushups are OK, hand-release pushups will stimulate the entire range of motion.
"I observe [many] people performing pushups that are just partially completed, not all the way to the floor. You'll develop strength [much] faster if you perform the exercise through its whole, she says.
Last but not least, perform some walking lunges rather than using the stairmaster.
Continually, Crawford "In comparison to the stair master, lunges will provide a wider range of motion, engaging more muscles while maintaining the lower-body strength and glute work you're typically hoping to attain on the stair master.
Lunges will improve your stair climbing ability, to put it another way. You're not necessarily skilled at lunges just because you can climb stairs."
