Hah, you such a weakling. I just finished a set of no hand pushups


#2139

I can only get my hand to move when upright by rolling my shoulder forward. Then I nearly dislocated my shoulder haha


#2140

I can’t find it in me to pull the trigger and purchase a air dyne bike not for the $$ most places are asking. Instead I’m getting ready to order this


#2141

If you want to save some cash for that airdyne, Titan makes a VERY comparable model for much less, with free shipping.

I have fallen out of love with Elitefts after dealing with their customer service enough times.


#2142

Really , luckily I have not any issues with them as of yet. Part of my issue about not wanting to spend money on a air dyne is because I already have a treadmill here at home.


#2143

But the reason you still want one is because treadmills suck!


#2144

When I have space to start building my home gym I’ll probably start with some kind of airdyne equivalent I find on Craigslist used. Cheap as possible but still does the trick.


#2145

Super sweet bar! I’ve been using the piss out of mine and love it.


#2146

I am getting an older aerodyne tomorrow. Fo free!!! F-R-E-E!


#2147

My dog has more miles on our treadmill than anybody else. And if I understand dogs, even she didn’t like it much.


#2148

Need to ask because I’ve never seen one in real life, how are airdyne bikes different than regular stationary bikes?


#2149

airdyne

@flappinit I prefer the term sucks ballz regarding the treadmill


#2150

Yeah I’ve seen pics, but does it feel any different when you do it?


#2151

The airdyne has an arm component to it absent a stationary bike. Reference those pedals.

Also cool because the fan makes it such that, the harder you train, the more resistance you encounter.


#2152

I am genuinely considering running Starting Strength, as written, in the near future. I never really gave the program a chance because I was too gym-illiterate to realize when I needed to deload/switch to the advanced novice version. Only issue may be time spent in the gym towards the end of the LP…don’t have 2 hours to do 3 x 5 Squats. Either way, I’ll have to consider it. I can probably break up the work into 30 minute sessions 5 days/week.


#2153

Sometimes I have to bite my thumbs to keep from posting on some threads.


#2154

Bite other people’s thumbs. It’s more effective.

Because you will be in jail.


#2155

But you don’t know where they have been :nauseated_face:


#2156

But I could say the same of my own thumbs.


#2157

Fair enough!
