Stationary bike was a great investment.

    It's nice to just start biking out of no where. I hope to upgrade and get a more professional one soon.

    Not to derail the thread, but why haven't you considered a regular bike?

    I will, when I'm not so heavy.

    Ah, I was going to suggest getting a trainer to attach to a bike, so you then detach it when you want to go on the road; but then, it may not work in your situation.

    How long are your sessions on the stationary generally? I find I lose interest really fast on stationary bikes, but I guess if you vary your resistance and cadence, it might be interesting.

    How much biking you think a person needs to do to get nice firm ass muscles.

    Only about 20-30 minutes right now. Need to build up endurance.

    Navy, you're asking me? icon_eek.gif

    I love stationary indoor cardio equipment. I'd rather chew my arm off than do cardio outside, I'd have to deal with all the unpleasantness like people, sunlight, nature and scenery icon_confused.gif

    Get rid of the people and give me nature, scenery and sunlight and I am a very happy camper. Living in Chicago is not my ideal place to be. Too crowded, polluted and very noisy.


    I heard the waterfront is pretty nice though?

    Unless you live near hills, it can be difficult to get your HR high without going faster than traffic or other conditions allow or are safe. Especially true for high intensity intervals.
