Keeping In Shape In The Great North

Green Knight,


I would focus more on leg and abdominal workouts since these are the muscles you use the most on a motorcycle. Lunges, jogging, or bicycling. In fact most of the school staff are avid runners or bicyclers. The Bowflex is also an awesome tool to use to get in shape for riding season.

Recumbent bike, Excercise equipment (looking at some more today) and RIDING... I went out again yesterday and I'm so sore I can barely move today... Ice racing on GOOD tires with a strong 4 stroke is extremely close to being on pavement with an inline 4 600...



hehe... here's where I crashed. That cloud of snow would be from me... 8)


I'm 2nd from the left.

So after much ado, I came home with the body solid GS-3


(buff dude not included)




I've been assembling for 2 hours now. Probably about 1/3 of the way there. But taking my time and for the first time in our 15 year marriage, we're doing this together without fighting :D How you may ask?!?! Simple. I'm following her *every* direction...


We looked heavily into the bowflex, but after using two of them, I didn't like the style of the resistance. The bows seemed to shake as you use them. Plus, the time between exercises is FAR greater than a decent plate gym.


In the end, it came down to the types of exercises, speed of change between them and a complete lifetime warranty on *everything*... Definitely not the cheapest on the market, but I'd say it's a good solid middle of the road gym...
