    First thought was: What a boring, lame post this is.
    Second: At least it`s not another of fancylads garbage gun control bait posts.

    1) its an elliptical and not a step climber
    2) if your working on your arms or have other joint pain in the legs, this is common. They also have stationary hand bikes. When I was in physical therapy for my neck they`d have me warm up my shoulder/neck muscles with the hand bike.

    I don`t know why they don`t just hook gyms up to the national grid. It seems like such an awful waste of energy and money-making potential to me. Even though they mainly only operate during the day, you could still use the energy produced to pump water up to the upper level of dams and the like as a means of storage.

    I have this machine at my gym, there is a point in one of the programs where you are instructed to use the upper body only. Just like how some instruct you to pedal backward for a period of time. I love how when people see a fat person doing something they do not understand, they assume they are being stupid or lazy. He is at the gym, give him a break.

    Maybe he has bad knees, or was told just to work his upper body? And yeah, he`s overweight, but he`s actively trying to do something about it.

    @sbsherbz80 I think you`re supposed to keep your feet on their while you`re only using your upper body. More resistance which gives you a better workout. At least that`s what I do anyway because just pumping your arms like that doesn`t really do anything

    "Use your arms only" on an elliptical DOES mean your feet stay on the sleds. However, I can see someone using an elliptical for the first time not understanding that. Very short video, entirely possible the guy realized "This does NOTHING" a second after the video ended and jumped onto the machine.

    Scuz, the ellipticals we have in our gym tell you to step to the side. Then they automatically double the resistance so your arms get a workout. believe it or not, technology is still evolving.
