Working out on a treadmill was found to burn 40 percent more calories than a stationary bike according to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
In a workout described as “somewhat hard” the treadmill burned 705 calories per hour, followed by the stair-stepper (627), the rowing machine (606), the cross-country ski machine (595), the Airdyne cycling machine (509), and the stationary bike (509).
This is good news for people who enjoy walking or running as their form of exercise.
