Elliptical trainers for Muscles Work

Elliptical trainers work your quads, gluts and hamstrings. Your calves also work, but to a lesser degree. If your elliptical trainer has an adjustable incline ramp, you can emphasize the calf workout by adjusting the ramp to a steep angle. Most mid-range and high-end elliptical trainers have moving handlebars you can push and pull for an upper-body workout, and they also allow you to pedal backward for variety.
