My blood pressure is high, due to being over weight, not been eating right. My blood pressure has been around 144/88 - 154/90 around that range. Pulse is like in the high 90's -101. I have not been eating right or exercising either, due to just being lazy & sitting in front of computer.
My doctor said I could bring my blood pressure down by eliminating sodium from my diet, and eating right, and exercising such as walking, and lose weight.
I had a Treadmill, but sold it to get a Elliptical. I am now thinking if I still had my Treadmill I could walk on it in the evenings, and workout on the Elliptical in the mornings.
I am thinking about buying another Treadmill to walk on, but don't know if I have to do that or not since I have an Elliptical.
My question is should I buy another Treadmill to get walking benefits, or can I get walking benefits from the Elliptical?
Is working out on the Elliptical as good or better than walking on the Treadmill?
I do know that you can work out for a shorter time and burn more calories on the Elliptical than on the Treadmill, but is working out on the Elliptical considered walking? Can I just work out on the Elliptical & bring my blood pressure down or do I need get another Treadmill and walk on it too?
