Ellipticals, anyone have one?..

and use it?

I've been using a weider exercise machine for quite a while....But lately I've been experiencing some lwr back pain...And its consistent, I stop using the weider and the pain goes away. A little research says things like
leg lifts and setups are not recommended if the back is sore. I think the lower bar for leg lifts may be the culprit. The press, butterfly and high bar may not help either. So further research says ellipticals are a good thing..for people with back issues but still want to workout. But just looking at the way one is setup...I mean I get the leg stair stepping, but is there really much resistance on the levers you pull on while doing this? Does this work with the stepping?

1. You have to have the fulcrum lined up with your hip joint iirc,

for leg lifts. Donít forget you can go backwards on an elliptical and work different muscles.
Sorry I donít know the answer to your question.

5. It has been helping my back because it helps strengthen my

stomach muscles.
