I have been curious so I’m just going to go ahead and ask. Been reading a few blogs where they say they exercise while reading magazines on the cardio machines (elliptical, treadmill, stair master, bike, etc.) I watch some ladies do this at the gym and just wonder how in the world they pay attention and not fall off the machine. That could be quite dangerous I would think. I was able to read on the stationary bike however it was a no go on all other machines especially on the elliptical because my eyes could not focus with all that movement I’m making. I can’t even watch the TV while on the treadmill ha ha
For me personally, I feel you would get a much better workout by focusing on your exercise therefore burning more calories. But yep, I know everyone has a different reason for working out, I was just wondering how they do it. Since I’m not that coordinated I just listen to my ipod and focus on my numbers.
Do you read while exercising on cardio machines?
