This week I am going to cover the Cybex Arc, if your gym has one, or you can use the elliptical. These machines are designed to take the impact out on your legs of your cardio, so they are great for alternating days with other pieces of cardio equipment.

One of the most popular strategies for accelerating fat loss is to perform aerobic exercise after an overnight fast.
