Discover to Really like the VersaClimber With This Small Exercise routine
No doubt you’ve seen the VersaClimber at your gym – that tall piece of equipment, lurking in the corner behind the more popular cardio machines. But the VersaClimber’s unpopularity is also its saving grace: there is never anyone using it, so you hop on it without a wait. Since the machine is often empty, you can also use it to add short bursts of cardio to your circuit training sets, just like my Equinox trainer Lauren had me do recently. It was my first time on the VersaClimber, and I have to say I liked using the machine but it’s a killer. I felt like I was climbing up an almost vertical wall.
The VersaClimber works both your arms and legs while making your heart rate soar. Decreasing the tension on the machine’s gearing forces you to use your upper body more; when you increase the tension, the work is more in your legs (I felt it more in the hamstrings than my quads) but your arms will still be feeling it.
