need advice......

Tuesday, February 19, 2013

I am excited because I am now down 16lbs......I have not exercised in 11 days because I have been babying my knee.....It was not right after doing the shred for 3 days, to the point that going up and down the stairs in my house reminded me of the initial injury. It feels much better today and I plan on doing a light low impact work out tomorrow.

So I was thinking about getting an exercise bike.....I am not the type of person who likes to walk around the neighborhood, malls or trails.......I guess because I used to run. I have an unrepaired ACL and am hoping to strengthen the muscles around my knee and have been advised that cycling may be the answer....Does anyone have any recommendations for a nice exercise bike? I am going to look on Craig's list to see if anyone has one for sale, but I was hoping that someone experienced could advise me on which brand and type to purchase.....By the way I do not want to spend a small fortune for this. I appreciate any help I can get!

    I don't have any advice about exercise bikes - but I do enjoy doing some of the seated workout videos here on Spark People - there are quite a few and they avoid any stress on your knees.
