I have always exercised almost daily with a static bike. Always 50 minutes at a normal pace. A couple of days ago I changed to an elliptical, of those that are standing. And I noticed that at 20 minutes I was already tired as if I had done 50. My goal was the usual 50 but I have not gone beyond 40 due to extreme fatigue. Is there much difference in effort between one and the other?

The two are very good for burning calories, but you have to take into account the effectiveness of each long-term. These machines are used not only to burn calories, and also exercise and strengthen the muscles. For example. We know that in statics, you'll work your legs, but in the elliptical, too, are going to work also part of the train top, detail to take into account. On the other hand at the time of burn calories are very similar, hovering between 350 and 400 calories per 30 m. I'll leave a link for more information.

There is a difference mainly because of the muscle mass involved in one and the other exercise. In the elliptical there is greater muscular involvement due to the participation of the upper body. The calories you burn will depend on the intensity at which you work. The lack of familiarity with the elliptical also causes you to get tired sooner. I recommend you to vary between both and also duration and intensities to stimulate more the organism and the musculature.
