Warm up with a light resistance for 3-5 minutes then increase your intensity for your main workout. Push and pull lightly with your arms to warm up your upper body.
Increase the resistance to a level that will keep your heart rate between 50-80% of your max for a sustained period. Push and pull with your chest and back muscles to give your upper body a workout. Lower the intensity to light resistance at the end of your workout for 3-5 minutes to cool down before your stretch.
Cross trainers are machines with arm handles. Many look and feel different but all allow the legs and arms to work together for a full body workout.
Hips, Thighs, Lower legs, Chest, Back, Shoulders, Arms
TIP: Push and pull with your chest and back muscles to give your upper body a workout instead of depending on your legs to do everything. Alternate between concentrating on pulling for 5 minutes, then pushing for 5 minutes.
