    Hi guys, how's it going?

    So we got a new exercise bike, and I've used it once since we've got it, and I hope to continue.

    I spent an hour on it on the 4th setting on the Schwinn Bike. It's the one where you lean forward, so you get some ab exercise as well (BONUS!!!)

    So what do I do to maximise my time on it? Just pedal away? Lean a certain amount of degrees?

    Also, how long should I stretch afterwards?

    I do ride indoors sometimes in the winter, when the weather just won't let up. (Usually my road bike on rollers.) I generally set it up in front of the TV and there are certain TV-related rules.

    - Sprint during commercials (This is getting harder as commercial breaks get longer.)

    - Sprint for one minute if any of the following occur:

    Bones says "He's dead, Jim."
    Bones points out he's a doctor, not a ___________
    Kirk gets the girl
    Kirk outwits a computer
    Kirk violates the prime directive
    Kirk's shirt gets ripped
    Kirk bluffs his out
    Kirk takes responsibility for the whole crew
    Kirk saves the day with a stirring speech
    Kirk kisses the girl
    Kirk says "We come in peace" and "shoot to kill" in the same sentence
    Kirk says "Phasers on stun"
    Spock shows emotion
    Spock uses the Vulcan neck pinch
    Spock looks into the science station
    Spock refers to the doctor as illogical
    Spock says "Fascinating" or "Indeed"
    Scotty complains about the warp speed requested/demanded
    Scotty pulls off a miraculous technological feat
    Scotty says "The engines canna take much more a this, Captain"
    Chekov promotes Russian history
    Chekov says "But Keptin...."
    Chekov pronounces a 'w' like a 'v'
    Sulu sets course
    Sulu has the con
    Uhura says "Hailing frequencies open"
    Uhura opens a channel in all frequencies and all languages
    Uhura sings
    Yeoman Rand gives Kirk something to initial
    Yeoman Rand serves coffee
    Nurse Chapel lusts after Spock
    Kyle makes his appearance as transporter chief
    Lt. Leslie appears or is mentioned
    A redshirt dies
    The weapons are powerless
    The transporter is inoperative
    Dilithium crystals are drained/inoperative/missing
    Communicators malfunction
    The shields are about to collapse
    The Enterprise goes faster than it is possibly able to
    The Enterprise is taken over by a superior alien power
    You see a styrofoam planet or a planet with no atmosphere
    A newly discovered planet is "Much like Earth"
    Klingon and Romulan technology is mixed up
    Special effects people cannot tell phasers from photon torpedoes

    -Increase resistance settings if any of the following occur:

    Kirk does not get the girl
    Sulu gets a sword
    Major character dies/is assumed dead
    Starfleet exhonorates the crew for their violation of regulations/orders
    The episode was blatantly ripped off by ST:TNG
    Lt. Leslie speaks
    Anybody makes a "historical" reference to the 20th century

    Well, the rules can get complex...
