Hey Guys

I am cutting to many calories in my current cut and need to introduce some cardio everyday. I am looking for a used indoor bike in my area, what kind is best to add to a muscle building/cutting regiment a fan bike like a airdyne or a spin bike with flywheel? Which do people prefer?

I wish I could go to the gym and trial both for a couple weeks then pick but unfortunately that’s not possible now. Also I cant just go outside and run as it bothers my torn meniscus.

Thanks for the input guys

Airdyne would be my pick. Then I would be doing more of a HIIT cardio sessions.

I own an assault bike that I love.

If looking for something cheaper then many Airdynes can be found pretty cheap on things like FB marketplace and Craiglist, depending on your area. It sucks for them, but you could look at any gyms in the area that may be closing or offloading stuff. I know some around here that had to get rid of spin bikes and sold them at a good price.

I have a Schwinn indoor recumbent bike that I purchased after my son had UCL surgery about 18 years ago (they harvest a hamstring ligament and transplant that into the elbow, so there needed to be a way to rehab his legs). It is programmable, does everything I need it to, and is reliable. I bought it new at Costco. They key is using the bike. I think that is much more important than the bike itself.

I have been told to be weary of a Menstrual Cycle.

Sad, they tell you everyday how my people have the virus, but the don't tell you how many lives have been ruined by people without it.

That's for sure. A lot of people/businesses are hurting due to covid. Ready for things to get back to normal (whatever normal may be). :)

Thanks for the input guys. Using it won’t be the problem, I am pretty determined to get this last bit of fat. Diet alone just isn’t cutting it anymore and my calories are now less than 2000

I am going to look for a fan bike or airdyne used locally. Even with the gym closures equipment is still scarce and overpriced due to shortages. But the fan bikes are not seeming to sell due to everyone wanting a peloton, so hoping for a good deal

If you have the money to spend, get a Peloton. They’re awesome. But they’re really expensive. My brother-in-law gifted my wife and I one back in February. My wife started riding it everyday during the COVID shutdown. Now the gym is open, she still rides during her lunch break. But like I said they’re really expensive.

Thanks again for the helpful input guys

I actually found what I believe is a good bike at a good price locally. Pick it up yesterday

Got this guy for $650 in like new condition. It basically the same thing as the Schwinn airdyne AD7 with some upgrades for commercial use

Hi, guys! I also want to try making sport from home. I want to buy an exercise machine. I was thinking about the one for cardio workouts. Treadmills and exercise bikes are really expensive for me, but a magnetic rowing machine can be a good variant. Is it effective for home-workouts? Сan you recommend me a good model? I have come across this list

The Concept 2 rowing machines are probably the best quality. May be a little high in price but will last you a while.

I never really cared for the Rowing Machines, but I probably never gave them a fair chance.

Any form of cardio is good as long as you push yourself. When I use the bike I usually do intervals, for example : 30 seconds medium speed, 30 seconds fairly fast and then 30 seconds as fast as possible. I'd do that for 25 minutes and be drenched in sweat. Or just ride to work on this bike.

I don't like cardio machines that don't include upper body. get a bike that has moving handles like liver king uses. or a rower or elipticle. just don't do lower body only cardio.

A bmx bike, you get the cardio and can do tricks which include lifting a 30ish lb bike over over again
