stationary bike
« on: October 12, 2012, 06:23:17 PM »
Currently my favorite workout machine is my stationary bike. I do 6 miles every morning. Sometimes, I listen to music but other times I watch a movie while I am riding. It is convenient and quiet and I can exercise without leaving the living room.  It is light enough that when I want to, I move it to other rooms in the house so I can watch what my kids are doing. The kids like it too and my 3 year old has learned a new song that really cracks me up. She sings I can ride my bike with no handlebars while swinging her legs on my bike.

Have you tried P90X or Insanity at home workout programs?

I think one piece of exercise equipment like a stationary bike or a treadmill is a great idea for the necessary cardio workout however adding some cheap muscle toning tools will take your home training to a new level. Resistance tubes or bands are great beginner tools instead of weights and you can use it for a variety of muscle groups like glutes, triceps, biceps, calves etc.

in response to the P90X: I have not tried it because I have not reached a level of fitness equal to what is required to perform their routine.  My husband does P90X and I have observed the results. I know that it is a good program but I am well over 200 pounds and I cannot do the lunges or the squats much less keep up with some of those movements. When I reach that level of fitness, I would be happy to do P90X.  I do not have a set of resistance bands but we do have a home gym which is a similar idea, I guess.

P90X is intense and with a beginner you wont be able to probably reach peak performance but a little step everyday will go a long way. Have you seen the video about the guy that started p90x at over 300lbs and after 6-7 rounds I think(90 days each round) hes down to like 185 and pretty buff. Just a thought, especially if you have P90X already available to you through your husband. Look into it :). Even if you can only do 10% it'll gradually increase and you'll become stronger, lose the weight you want and get more toned!

I like the elliptical a little more than stationary bikes. They tend to hurt my back. Anyone know any tips to avoid that?
