- Exercise bike fitness…. yes I know
Firstly HRM on gym equipment is generally bobbins, so get a polar HRM or similar.
Intervals are what you want, plenty of sites and info on the web for bike based sessions.
Or if you can take a laptop a table and some headphones into the gym than I can highly recommend the Sufferfest videos.Posted 5 years agobeakerMember
I’m currently working overseas and unable to ride my bike as it’s back home. I’ve got access to a well equipped gym and have been using the exercise bikes to try and keep my fitness up. I currently use the HRM function on the bike and pedal for an hour at around 70 to 80% of max. I’ve seen some improvement in my fitness but want to know what else I can do to improve it even more?
Thanks all.Posted 5 years agodknwhySubscriber
I second the Sufferfest vids. I did a lot of exercise bike workouts to get fit a few years back when family life got in the way of real riding.Posted 5 years ago
It was easiest to get up early and do 30-60 mins on the indoor bike before everyone got up. Saved time over getting kit on and heading out etc.
I mainly used the sufferfest vids, even just doing half if I only had 30 mins. The key is intervals but I was never any good at setting my own so the videos did this for me without the need to think about what I had to do next etc.
It was also more entertaining than just staring at the TV.
