Can I replace walking with elliptical training or another type of cardio exercise? I tend to get bad shin splints when I use a treadmill.
Walking is always my first choice for the cardio portion of a workout — simply because it’s easy, it can be done in almost any environment, and it's one of the best types of cardio to do with a partner. But if you can’t walk because of an injury, there are many good alternatives.
For someone with knee or shin problems, like you, an elliptical machine is a great option. You could also try a rowing machine or an arc trainer. Swimming or biking might be good choices for you too. To maximize your results, add some strength training, which helps burn calories long after you work out.
The most important part of choosing a cardio workout is finding something you feel comfortable doing, something you look forward to — and something you can doevery single day. Odds are, if you like the activity, you’ll be inclined to do it more often and over the long term.
