CONT

L'exerciseur elliptique. Il simule à la fois les mouvements de ski de fond et ceux de vélo. De plus, il sollicite le haut du corps et les bras puisque plusieurs modèles sont dotés de poignées qu'on peut bouger d'avant en arrière.

CONT

Si vous utilisez la bonne technique à l'appareil elliptique, le mouvement restera assez semblable à la course pour travailler dans la bonne direction et ainsi entraîner les muscles nécessaires à la course à pied.
