I'm trying hard to increase my fitness / lose weight. However I'm concious not to "over train" as last time I did I injured my ITBS.
I'm running currently 3 - 4 times a week. I want to go to the gym a couple of times on top.
What equipment can I use that will not contribute to injury causing exercise. E.g. the elliptical cross trainer I assume is ok but are equipment step masters, rowers etc ok as well?
Your advice will be appreciated.
Hi Nam - I've been spinning - great work out - very tough!
So is it only impact you need to avoid on your rest / cross training day?
Would the stair master count as impact?
Running is good you can lose weight and remain fit. Instead of choosing equipment of your choice it's better to ask some trainer which equipment suits best to your body..
