5 mistakes that are ruining your elliptical workout

The elliptical gets a bad rap for being an ineffective workout tool, but that’s only because most people use it wrong. Tweak these bad habits to get the most out of your workout.

You only ever use the elliptical

Using the same equipment at the gym in the same way every single time is not only monotonous, it can also hinder your ability to meet your fitness goals in the long run.

“Working out your body the same way every day can lead to overuse of certain body parts that may result in injuries,” says Ryan Halvorson, senior editor of Idea Health & Fitness Association and a personal trainer in San Diego, Calif.

If you don’t want to give up the elliptical, fitness experts suggest incorporating an elliptical workout into a high-intensity interval training (HIIT) routine; this means you alternate between high-intensity exercise for 30 seconds to a minute and low-intensity exercise for one to two minutes.

Instead of an hour straight on the machine, try doing as many burpees or mountain climbers as you can in 30 seconds, then hop on the elliptical for a minute or two to let your muscles recover.

Once your body starts to get comfortable with a workout routine, that’s when you know it’s time to kick it up a notch. Increasing your resistance is the best way to ensure you keep progressing. (iStock)

You always use the ‘fat burn’ button

Don’t let that “fat burn” button fool you into thinking that the weight will melt off quicker. The fat burn option helps you burn more fat at a lower intensity, but the problem is that you’re not burning nearly as many overall calories.

“If you want to lose weight, you want to burn calories,” says Dani Singer, Fitness Director of Fit2Go Personal Training in Baltimore. “Whether you’re burning carbs or fat is irrelevant, weight loss is about the calories that you’re burning.” High-intensity workouts are most efficient for fat burn and weight loss because you burn more calories and get that added benefit of the “after burn” effect.

After a physically intense workout, your body breaks down fat and continues to burn more calories to repair your muscles and replenish your energy sources. Make sure to avoid these post-gym mistakes, too.  

You pay too much attention to the numbers on the machine

Most cardio machines can only detect weight and age, and that’s only if you plug in your own information. But overall, they can’t detect who is using it in terms of body type, fitness level, height, or body fat percentage. (iStock)

You can’t help but feel victorious when the “calories burned” window on your elliptical dash hits triple digits. But there’s a catch – those numbers may be skewed.

Most cardio machines can only detect weight and age, and that’s only if you plug in your own information. But overall, they can’t detect who is using it in terms of body type, fitness level, height, or body fat percentage, which means the numbers on the machine during your elliptical workout may not be accurate to you.

In fact, researchers from the University of California at San Francisco found that the elliptical overestimated calorie burn by 42 percent.

“Don’t pay attention to the numbers on the machine. Pay attention to how hard you’re working because that’s correlated with calorie burn more than the machine,” says Singer.

You lean on the static handles

Leaning on the static handles in the center console is one of the most common mistakes trainers see at the gym. If you’re slouched over the handrails constantly, your body doesn’t work as hard because the handles act as your support throughout the workout instead of your body.

“We already spend a lot of time slouched, so why reinforce it while you exercise?” says Halvorson. “Elliptical machines allow you to stand nice and upright to help improve posture, promote better circulation, and work muscles more efficiently.”

To maintain good posture, engage your abs and pretend there’s a string attached to the crown of your head and the ceiling, pulling you up straight and tall.

For an additional burn during an elliptical workout, take advantage of those swinging handlebars (if your machine has them) to work out your arms and shoulders, too.

You never change the resistance

Once your body starts to get comfortable with a workout routine, that’s when you know it’s time to kick it up a notch. Increasing your resistance is the best way to ensure you keep progressing.

“If you’re keeping the same pace and distance your body will adapt and reduce the overall calorie burn and physical improvement,” says Halvorson. “It’s not the best bang for your buck.” As you up the resistance, make sure it’s feasible for your body to keep moving.

Poor nutrition, training too hard, and not enough sleep may also put you at risk for an exercise plateau.

One man has been crowned the dad of the year for pranking his teenaged daughter with a hilarious “Parenting 101” fashion lesson, poking fun at the girl’s penchant for denim cutoffs by surprising her with a pair of his own short shorts.

“You wear yours out in public? I will wear mine! Parenting 101!” funny dad Jason Hilley captioned a must-see home video, shared to Facebook on June 12. In the hysterical 75-second clip, which has since been viewed 24 million times, Hilley and his young son burst into the girl’s room for an impromptu schooling.

“Kendall, we have to have a talk,” the father begins, as a mortified Kendall raises a hand to her mouth and the little boy cackles in delight.

“Get your shorts, we’re gonna see whose fit better,” Hilley continues of the “butt cutting shorts.”

“Which ones?” she asks, which her dad describes as “the new ones we bought that were supposed to be a lot longer.”

Complying, Kendall shimmies on the shorts under an oversized long-sleeved top.

“Yeah, exactly!” Hilley cries of the cropped-style cutoffs once she has them on, with Kendall erupting in giggles.

“Whose are shorter, babe?” the silly dad asks as he strikes a pose in the mirror and looks at the camera, which is evidently held by his wife.

“I can’t handle y’all,” the woman laughs.

“I’m picking her up from school, with these on,” a serious Hilley continues, rubbing and slapping his thigh.

“These aren’t even that short!” Kendall protests, checking out her shorts in the mirror.

“No, neither are mine!” the dad fired back.

In the days since, the legendary family moment has gone viral with over 144,000 shares, 11,000 likes and 6,700 comments to date.

“Absolutely wonderful, dad of the year!!!” one fan declared.

Beauty blogger accused of releasing lumpy and hairy lipstick: ‘This can’t be ok’

Westlake Legal Group lipsticks Beauty blogger accused of releasing lumpy and hairy lipstick: 'This can't be ok' Michael Hollan fox-news/style-and-beauty fox news fnc/lifestyle fnc article 68b80e68-5e57-5dfd-884c-80130e466ae6

YouTube beauty guru is trying to survive lumpy-lipstick-gate.

Jaclyn Hill launched her cosmetic line, Jaclyn Cosmetics, about two weeks ago. While fans were initially anxious to get their hands on the product, since then, some have been taking to social media to complain about defective products.

Many of the complaints center around the lipstick being “lumpy,” People reports. Pictures began surfacing of lipstick tubes full of lumpy product. Some even appeared to have tiny, mysterious balls embedded inside of them. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst of it.

Some users noticed that there appeared to be tiny hairs in their lipstick.

YouTube beauty blogger RawBeautyKristi posted a review of the lipsticks, which can be summed up with one of her tweets. “All I can say is WTF,” she posted along with a picture of “hairy” lipstick.

Another user posted a similar picture, saying “I’m a longtime fan, but I’m disappointed with @jaclyncosmetics BOTH of my lipsticks came with fuzz on them.”

More users posted pictures of “lumpy” looking lipsticks, with one saying, “I got my @jaclyncosmetics lip stick today and it’s got these little scratchy balls in the lipstick?? #jaclyncosmetics I don’t understand?”

Another user asked, “Why is my @jaclyncosmetics Decaf lipstick lumpy?? @Jaclynhill This cant be ok right?”

Even die-hard fans had issues, with one posting, “I am a huge supporter! Seriously love you. I was soooo excited to buy your lipsticks. Today when I went to put on “Decaf.” I noticed there was a hard ball inside of it. What is it? Can I get a replacement?”

Hill took to Twitter to respond, saying “If any of you are receiving lipsticks like this…. please know that this is NOT hair! My factory used brand new white gloves to do quality control & they shed all over my product! We switched to rubber gloves 2 days ago & will make sure this never happens again.”

In regard to the “lumpy lipsticks,” she posted, “In rare circumstances some lipsticks were exposed to high temperatures or the raw materials were not blended thoroughly and that is not acceptable to us – as of now we are seeing less 0.1% with issues – but we see your complaints on social and want to fix things!”

Wedding reception’s ‘luxury’ menu slammed: ‘I thought this was hospital food’

A wedding guest has slammed the “luxury” menu they were served at a friend’s wedding reception.

Taking to a Facebook wedding shaming group, the anonymous guest shared snaps of the unusual wedding meal provided by a 4-star hotel in Leeds.

COUPLE SHAMED FOR ‘PATHETIC’ WEDDING CATERING: ‘THIS MAKES MORE SENSE FOR TODDLERS’

To start, attendees at the nuptials were given a plate of three frozen Yorkshire puddings accompanied with an herb garnish.

When it came to the main course, adults dined on a lackluster chicken dish including an unusual side of zucchini stuffed with green beans.

Meanwhile, children were fed half a pizza topped with tinned tuna, alongside french fries and baked beans.

Captioning her snaps the woman wrote: “I don’t know if the chef of this 4 star ‘luxury’ hotel was sick that day, or on holiday – but something must have been going on.

“I really appreciate the little herb on the side of the frozen Yorkshire puddings, really pushing it out there.”

And it seems that fellow group members were equally unimpressed, with the post receiving hundreds of comments from baffled people.

One wrote: “I would be 100 percent in the kitchen, throwing abuse at the entire kitchen staff if that was what was served at my wedding.”

“I had better food in school dinners,” said another with a third adding, “I thought this was hospital food.”

One particularly horrified member added: “Is that canned tuna on pizza??! WTAF”

“The green onions inside the cucumber. Wtf” wrote another.

‘Sunburn tattoos’ are a painful way to show off your style

These folks are having fun in the sun — but they could be risking their health in the process.

“Sunburn tattoos,” a body-modification trend that first tried to happen in 2015, is heating up for the summer 2019 season, according to a new Inked Mag report.

It works like this: People place stencils on exposed skin and head outside to soak up some rays. When that mission is complete, they remove the stencils to reveal “semi-permanent” designs in paler skin tones.

The practice originated with a French artist named Thomas Mailaender, Inked Mag reports. His “Illustrated People”  series involved placing photo negatives onto models’ skin, then shining an ultraviolet light onto them. The process created contrast on the skin. A portrait of a man on a horse was burned onto a woman’s back; an image of a child was burned into a man’s right arm.

TEXAS MOM’S VIRAL SUNBURN HACK WORKS, BUT IT’S NOT ‘MAGICAL CURE,” DERMATOLOGISTS WARN

It wasn’t long before #sunburntattoo posts were bubbling up on Twitter and Instagram — and we are not just talking tan lines here, people.

Social-media users are feeling the burn via designs of spiders, the Batman logo and the Playboy bunny. In an image and caption uploaded last year, one Instagram user named Paloma Ponce wrote that she got a dreamcatcher-shaped sunburn tattoo by applying a stencil on her skin, then going out into the sun and later removing the stencil.

Another Insta user, @sch_nien, in an image also shared last summer, shows a man’s burned leg with pale patches that say “sun” and “shine” separated by the shape of a sun.

Experts often stress the importance of protecting skin from the sun’s powerful rays.

“Both UVA and UVB [rays] can cause harmful effects on the skin,” says Dr. Mary Stevenson, a dermatologic surgeon and assistant professor at NYU Langone.

“Ultraviolet causes damage to cellular DNA, with UVB damaging the basal layer of your skin predominantly and UVA penetrating deeper and also causing damage which can ultimately result in skin cancer,” Stevenson adds. “Blistering sunburns in particular, which result from intense ultraviolet exposure, are known risk factors for causing cancer. As a dermatologic surgeon, I treat skin cancers daily and advise my patients to avoid burning and to wear a physical blocker with titanium or zinc oxide.”

So play it safe this summer: As the Fun Tan Tattoo stencil brand suggests, opt for a layer of sunscreen or self-tanning cream instead of temporary embellishments with consequences you may regret down the line.

Some dads manage to do it all – from cooking to fixing things to playing chauffeur. But when your dad needs a little help to stay on his grind, there’s always coffee. What better way to give your dad some extra pep-in-his-step than with a brand that donates part of its proceeds toward supporting injured firefighters, veterans and first responders.

If your dad is the hiking, fishing and hunting type, he likely needs a cooler that’s as agile as he is. Enter the Yeti Hopper BackFlip 24. The brand beloved by outdoor adventurers has created a backpack cooler to keep your dad’s hands free (though it has handles if he’d rather carry it the old-fashioned way). The leak-proof design allows your old man to traverse the backcountry with 20 cans of his favorite beverage – or simply kick up his feet and watch the world go by knowing he won’t be thirsty anytime soon.

The backpack comes in two colors and is currently in stock.

Often, gadgets and dads go hand-in-hand. So what better way to show him you care than a gadget for his hand? Or, wrist, rather.

The Apple Watch is available online and in stores.

Georgia police officer pulls over girlfriend to propose

Though the flashing sirens of a police car could make any driver nervous, one Georgia woman’s unexpected traffic stop had a happy ending: a marriage proposal.

On June 5, Alexis McCart was driving with a friend in Lawrenceville when a police officer for the city inexplicably pulled them over, Fox 5 reports.

“I was so nervous; I didn’t know what was going on,” McCart told Gwinnett Daily Post. “Then [the officer] got us out of the car, and I was like, ‘Why is he doing this? What is going on?’”

Little did McCart realize, but her pal and the Lawrenceville Police Department (LPD) were in on a plan to help her boyfriend, Officer John Heart of the DeKalb County Police Department, pop the question.

LPD Officer Michael Peterson told the women that authorities were looking for suspects who had been at Walmart and instructed them to get out of the car, the Post reports. The strange orders were part of Heart’s plan, as people don’t normally have to exit their vehicle after getting pulled over.

“I said to myself, ‘She’d be really mad at first, but hopefully it’ll work out in the end,'” Heart recalled to Fox 5. “It was one of the most nerve-wracking things I’ve done.”

Moments later, McCart was shocked to see her beau – down on one knee.

“I turned around and there he was, and I just started bawling,” she said. “I was in such shock — you can tell by the picture. I literally had no clue.”

McCart said yes – and the happy couple couldn’t be more thrilled to tie the knot.

The Gwinnett County Sheriff’s Office has since congratulated the pair on Facebook, where the photos of the pre-planned traffic stop and the story of “how he asked” have since gone viral with over 16,000 likes and 3,000 shares.

With plans for a fall wedding, the bride-to-be says that they’re considering an October 4 celebration in a playful nod to police code.

Reps for the sheriff’s office joked that the move would be in “true cop fashion.”

According to the arrest affidavit, Cheety told police she was visiting Tennessee for a bachelorette party and had rented the Airbnb. The 29-year-old New Jersey woman told officials she drank two bottles of wine and “went psycho.”

Though she could not communicate exactly what happened given her levels of intoxication, law enforcement officials believe Cheety “kicked through the windows with her bare feet when she couldn’t get into the house” at some point, Yahoo reports.

The reported incident caused roughly $1,900 in damages to the Airbnb, Yahoo reports.

Cheety was hospitalized for treatment of her foot, according to the outlet. She was arrested on a felony charge for vandalism and held in Metro jail on a $2,500 bond.

Melania Trump in Hermes headscarf likened to Jackie Kennedy

President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump wrapped up their whirlwind five-day state visit to Europe on Friday, with some eagle-eyed style critics arguing that FLOTUS’ departure outfit channeled Jackie Kennedy.

The first lady looked chic for the transatlantic flight, boarding Air Force One at Shannon Airport in a beige Burberry trench coat and black Louboutin pumps, the Daily Express reports. What’s gotten people talking, however, were the accessories: a baby blue Hermes headscarf paired with oversized sunglasses.

“This reminds me of a previous First Lady and fashion icon, Jackie Kennedy,” one Twitter user said of the “gorgeous” women.

Other commenters agreed that Trump “appeared to be inspired by Jackie O” in the headscarf that kept her hair back on the windy runway. The style icon was known to sport the accessory – plus oversized shades – during her travels, too.

In a larger sense, the fashion moment was hardly the first time that Trump’s sense of style has reportedly evoked that of her fellow first lady, AOL reports.

Most famously, the former model wore a powder blue suit to her husband’s presidential inauguration in 2017 — a look that apparently nodded Kennedy’s similar ensemble for the same occasion in 1961.

World’s first 360-degree infinity pool confuses social media: ‘Where are the stairs?’

Infinity pools are about to get even more incredible — or confusing.

The world’s first 360-degree infinity pool could be constructed in London as soon as 2020, according to British pool design company Compass Pools.

The 159,000-gallon (600,000-liter) pool — set to go by the name of “Infinity London” — is planned to be at the top of a 55-story skyscraper in the middle of the city, according to a press release from the company. However, the pool’s location has not yet been confirmed.

To make the pool perfectly clear, Infinity London will be made from cast acrylic instead of glass and the floor of the pool will be transparent so people inside the building will be able to see swimmers, the release said.

Infinity London will reportedly be the world’s first 360-degree infinity pool, atop a 55-story building in the city, according to designers Compass Pools. The pool could start construction as early as 2020, the company announced. However, people on social media were confused about how swimmers will enter the pool.  (Compass Pools)

The top floors of the building will also have a five-star international hotel, with use of the infinity pool exclusive to hotel guests, according to the release.

However, despite all the amenities, people on Twitter were confused as to how people would actually get into the pool.

“Would you dare to swim in world’s 1st infinity pool with 360-degree views? Take a look at photos. Where are the stairs?” one person asked.

Another person came up with their own creative solutions.

Some people even took this opportunity to joke about “The Sims” video game.

“I see this as proof that we all live in an advanced version of The Sims. There’s no way in or out of that pool. Those people are going to die,” someone tweeted. “Come on, you all know you did this too!”

“For everyone who enjoyed killing Sims in 2001,” another person joked.

However, the company explained its system in the press release.

“Swimmers will access the pool through a rotating spiral staircase based on the door of a submarine, rising from the pool floor when someone wants to get in or out.,” the release said.

Alex Kemsley, Compass Pool’s swimming pool designer and technical director said in the release that even though designing the entrance to the pool was a challenge, they were inspired by submersibles.

“We faced some quite major technical challenges to this building, the biggest one being how to actually get into the pool,” he said in the release. “Normally a simple ladder would suffice, but we didn’t want stairs on the outside of the building or in the pool as it would spoil the view – and obviously you don’t want 600,000 litres of water draining through the building either.”

“The solution is based on the door of a submarine, coupled with a rotating spiral staircase which rises from the pool floor when someone wants to get in or out – the absolute cutting edge of swimming pool and building design and a little bit James Bond to boot,” he added.
