New Cardio Toy

To spice up my cardio-life I found a new flavor of elliptical that piqued my interest. An Octace Lateral Trainer This thing, instead of having your usual feet locked into moving just forward and backwards under your body (think cross-country skiing). This toy has a lateral, or side-to-side, motion. Once my body got passed the adjusting to the motion, which can be a little uncomfortable for me, this thing gave a great workout. There were a ton of settings. I elected for an interval training session where the resistance changed, but I also played with just how much lateral motion there was. It kind of felt like I was speed skating. The bounce and side shifting motion became noticeable to my lower back. Stretching was definitely helpful afterwards. All-in-all it was a great workout and look forward to hopping on one again.
