Elliptical vs. Normal Exercise Bike

16 years ago

Stumbled onto this forum from another site, and think it is the best site!

Anyway, just getting into the exercise as part of losing weight, and have been using the elliptical and exercise bike at the gym. Funny thing was that the machines seem to indicate that I am burning a lot more calories on the elliptical than the exercise bike, 2.5 times more.... Does this sound right? Or is the elliptical machine I'm using just clocking up the calories burnt incorrectly?

If it is correct, then will be using the elliptical more than the bike!
