A turbo trainer looks like a brilliant idea, but if I fall off thing then there's a chance I could rip out all the screws and whatnot holding my bionic shoulder together! I don't have the balance for it.
turbo, not rollers, you can't (unless you're really unstable) fall off a turbo, but falling off an armchair would be easier.
iDave - I've been looking at the diet thread of yours too. You may well have the key to me remaining in my 34" waist jeans.
I think of my 34's as my fat jeans, and I'm not slim!
I'm just coming upto 2 months off excercise with a broken arm (wont actualy be able to ride a bike for another 4 weeks and already been off for 6). At times it drags, but in some ways its been quite nice to be in Febuary and the grounds under 2ft of mud, thinking I'd like to ride, rather than most years struggling for motivation to get out and destroy more chains, pads, cassettes, etc. And I've actualy lost weight eating takeaways, ready meals etc, and just eating normaly (i.e. not idave as I couldnt be bothered to cook with 1 arm), OK some/most of it is probably muscle, but seeing as I stuggle to lose any weight while excercising at least when I start up again I'll be converting fat to muscle and not put the weight back on.
