The mistake: Holding yourself up with your arms. A lot of people put their hands on the railing and lock their elbows with arms straight down. That’s like using crutches.
The fix: Rest your hands lightly on the bars only for balance. Keep your body upright, with just a slight lean forward.
The mistake: Too little resistance.
The fix: Go slower, with challenging resistance. You’ll give yourself a tougher workout, increase your heart rate and maintain your time in the training zone longer. Result: You’ll burn more fat.
