With the end of May approaching I had some anxiety about what I could do for my New 2 You Cross Training Challenge.
I had SEVERAL ideas but most of them used either my left wrist or right ankle - boo! Thanks to Kimberly at Just Trying is For Little Girls for having this challenge, otherwise, I would definitely be sitting around feeling sorry for myself.
This month's New 2UCT challenge involved this piece of equipment . . .
It's an Airdyne bike. This is how the Schwinn website describes the bike:
The Airdyne® Exercise Bike is simply smart. Wind resistance is exponential, so the harder you pedal, the higher the resistance becomes. This naturally provides the right workout for both a novice exerciser and an elite athlete. The Airdyne® flywheel provides smooth resistance while cooling you during the workout. The Airdyne® Exercise Bike is ideal for both fitness and rehabilitative use.
Because of my ankle, I put my feet on the foot rest and just used the arm part of the bike - it wasn't overly exciting (like all the cool gym equipment or a new group fitness class), but it was a chance to do some safe exercise while rehabbing. Well, it's not pretty but . . . mission accomplished for May!
