What are the adjustments on an elliptical machine?

Elliptical Machine Adjustments

Most elliptical trainers have adjustments for tension and elevation. Unlike the treadmill, the elevation doesn't make the workout harder. It changes the emphasis so that the higher slant makes your glutes and hamstrings (buttocks and back of thighs) work harder, whereas the lower positions emphasize quads (front of thigh) and calves. Higher tension makes the workout harder.
