After I was told by the doctors that to delay having a knee replacement I needed to work the quadriceps and the calf muscles to offer support to my knee, I looked into various machines to enhance the work I was doing already.
Cycling seemed like the best option at the time but as my bicycle was broken and I had no desire to go out in the bad weather, I first looked static bikes. Then I was talking to a friend about the best machine to give a full-body workout rather than just the legs, who recommended an elliptical: At that time I thought that the only good machines were found in the gym. After further study into the machines and the positioning of the flywheel as well as the weight of the flywheel. I also went to various sports equipment outlets and rapidly found the machines in the store were quite light and flimsy. I WANTED A QUALITY MACHINE! Then I heard about Nordic Track, a well-renowned manufacturer of exercise machines.
Front FlyWheel or Rear?
The front flywheel machines give the effect more similar to stair climbing, whereas the rear gives a more elliptical rotation. As I wanted the most minimal pressure on my knee I went for the rear flywheel. The weight of the wheel is also very important! The heavier the weight the better the workout and the more durability. The SE7i is also foldable providing a space-saving alternative for such a machine.
