How about trying a spinning class or see if you can get some spinning DVDs to use with your stationary bike. This could give you some variety.

Grab a pair of weights and do some curls or tricep pull down. Whenever you put your hands above your heart, your heart rate gets faster.

I tabata train on the one in our fitness room at the complex. I go all out for 20 seconds and then rest for 20 sec and repeat for 10 minutes.

If you're looking for other stationary bike workouts, here's a link to one (and it has links to others on the right of the page):

Hi,
I am new to exercising and the few times that I have gone, I have used a stationary bike. I need some suggestions on how to use the stationary bike for an effective cardio workout. Today, I "climbed a hill." Which means, that I increased the resistance and speed one at a time and then came down and finished out where I started. Any other suggestions?
Thanks!
