Exercisers, Aerobic, Cross-Country Skiing
Definition : Aerobic exercisers designed to simulate the motion of cross-country skiing, using forward-sliding leg and opposite arm motion. These exercisers typically consist of a pair of ski-like sliding footpads mounted on two rails and two handlebars or a rope-and-pulley device that simulates ski poles. They often include a monitor for displaying workout feedback such as time, speed, distance, calories burned, and heart rate. Cross-country skiing exercisers are intended to increase cardiovascular endurance by keeping the heart and pulmonary rate elevated for a continuous period of time. Additionally, they provide strength and endurance to the muscles of the lower body (i.e., quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteus, hip flexors, calves) and the upper body (i.e., arms, shoulder, chest, back). forward-sliding motion opposite-leg - opposite-arm motion
