Hi, Could someone please explain the cons to low resistance as opposed to high resistance. Doing a workout on a machine with a low resistance set seems to burn more calories according to the monitor. I am a bit confused about the whole thing. I use to workout regularly on a bike at level 6 of 8 and then switched to level 3 of 8 and found it seems to burn more calories although the effort seems lower you obviously do more rpms etc but I presume that their must be a downside to this. The main aim here is weight loss first. Any help appreciated.
