The elliptical machine combines the motions of running, stair-stepping, and upper body action, providing you a full-body workout. It is also one of the best ways to target your glutes if used right.
By steadily increasing the incline on the elliptical, you will really fire up the glute and hamstring muscles.
To fuel the fire even more, ease your hips back so your butt sticks out a bit and push down with your heels.
With this workout, strive for 130-140 strides per minute.
