ADDING STG TNG TO STAT BIKE RIDING

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

HEY ALL,

IS THERE A WAY TO ADD STRENGTH TRAINING WHILE I RIDE MY STATIONARY BIKE?

I DO INTERVALS ON THE BIKE. I BIKE HARD FOR 3-4 MIN. THEN WORK OUT WITH HAND WEIGHTS WHILE I PEDDLE SLOWLY, THEN DO THESE REPS FOR 30-35 MIN.

IF I ADDED ANKLE WEIGHTS WOULD THAT INCREASE MY STRENGTH TRAINING WHILE I RIDE THE STAT BIKE?

ARE THERE OTHER WAYS TO ADD STG. TRAINING TO STAT BIKE RIDING?

ON OUR SAPPHIRE TEAM, WE ARE ADDING STG. MINUTES BY USING HAND WEIGHTS DURING TV COMMERCIALS. COULD WE ALSO ADD STG. MINUTES BY ADDING ANKLE WEIGHTS AND DOING LEG LIFTS?

JUST WONDERING HOW TO GET MORE FIT DURING THE WINTER WHEN IT IS TOO COLD TO GO OUTSIDE.

THANKS,
LINDA emoticon

    I agree with DRAGONFLY180. I would worry that all that switching back and forth would cause some bad form in one activity or the other. ST where you are really focused (mentally too) on the muscles doing their work would be great!

    ankle weights would work, but a regular strength training workout, where you're focusing soley on the weights, a couple of times a week would probably do your muscles more good that trying to multitask. try sp's online workout generator.

WEIGHTFAT VS MUSCLE GAIN?

Tuesday, December 07, 2010

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU ARE GAINING FAT OR GAINING MUSCLE?

    if your weight doesn't change or it goes up there are a number of things that can be at play.

muscle is denser than fat so takes up less space on the body. Example: 5# of fat takes up the same space as 10# of muscle (don't quote me)

Using fat calipers to measure your body fat is probably the most accurate way to quantify a change. Or a fancy water displacement thing that scientists do.
The low tech way consists of how your clothes fit, visably seeing muscle tone on the body, or ease of strength training moves.

I saw on the Sapphire page that you registered a gain of .5#

If your strength training is new to your routine, it could account for it, or even the cardio you do can cause the body to keep extra water so the body can process the work you have put in. i wouldn't worry about the gain.

by-the-by
434 in cardio!!! that is completely awesome and really inspiring. not to mention your ST, so cool. I hope you see this last week being firmly in the winner column.

Keep it up! i am going to be looking for your posts, I am totally interested to see how far you can get within our challenge.

    An outfit that barely fits, or a tape measurer is usually my first indication. I used to measure everything on the first of every month, but that went by the wayside once I started gaIning. If you are gaining muscle, your measurements will be smaller with your weight staying the same or even showing a slight gain.
