Information on Working Out

This article in the New York Times discusses the most efficient calorie-burning methods for using various machines in the gym. Some take-away points:

  • Not entirely a surprise, the calorie count on the machine is inaccurate.
  • Hanging on the rails of a treadmill reduces the number of calories burned by 40 or 50 percent.
  • It looks like it may be better to run on a treadmill than to use a bike.
