Don’t underestimate…

…the value of a stationary trainer. In this case, I opted for a magnetic resistance unit, to which I attached my Trek mountain bike. At first I thought this thing was not all that challenging. After a little while, I started to sweat. Then I was really sweating. I added some light dumbbells for some upper body resistance and that did the total trick. What a good workout. It’s about all aerobic, but that’s what is needed in this case.

So, if you have a bike and don’t like to head out in the cold. Hook up a stationary unit and pedal away. You’ll be surprised how well it work.

Be good. Be well.
