Work-Out Wednesdays-What I do at the Gym-Recumbent Bicycle
I started using the recumbent bicycle when I first joined the gym, about 10 years ago. I used the recumbent bike for the lower back support. The traditional stationary bike offers no back support and my back will usually start hurting within minutes of being on the machine. The recumbent bike is a much better fit for me. I love using the bike because honestly, you get to sit while exercising. I almost feels like cheating. However, I use a pre-set program that changes the intensity throughout the ride, so it is still challenging. I also like the bike because I can read a book while on it, so it really helps the time go by fast. I use the bike once a week for 30 minutes. I usually use it following weight training, which will be my topic for the next Work-Out Wednesday.
