View Full Version : Elliptical Effect on Legs

Different types of cardio have different effects on your legs, i.e. stairstepper has a tendency to bulk your legs up, and running has a tendency to get them lean.

My question is, what effect does the elliptical machine have on your legs?

I do a lot of high intensity Stairmaster work and my legs have never "bulked" up. With proper diet, you aren't going to gain bulk. My legs have actually become leaner since doing a lot of stairs. It is individual. I haven't noticed any big differences in my legs since doing elliptical.
