Your posts always manage to make me change my plan for training to include your suggestions - ever thought of going into politics?
I like the stationary bike as well, but I think it uses less muscles than the elliptical - or maybe its the position that tires me out in less time, so I dont use it as often. As for other cardio machines, they just have one that makes you look like you are skiing, with two sticks to put your hands on and two place for the feet, and one really similar to yours, but with the movement vertical instead of parallel to the floor.
I have thought of jogging more than once, but my buddy really seems to be lazy
Its more tiring than ever around here, because every street is either really steep or OHMYGOD steep. Thats why no one I know has or is able to use a bycicle. At least weather is no problem, its around 15 degrees C.
Is the cardio less effective when you use for a long time the same machines, just as for weight lifting the same exercises do? Or would it just be a question to enjoy the training more? Will probably (90 percent) implement some of your suggestion anyway, seems definitely better either way!
P.S. Forza Italia was a right wing party including this guy:
Always kinda awkward hearing it - but your italian is good, with a couple of months here you could easily pass as one of the spaghetti tribe!
As for todays training:
30 minutes elliptical, diff 5/12
: 30 kg, 2x12, 40 kg 2x5
: 9-10-10kg, 3x8
-10 kg, 3x8
: 9-10-12-14 kg, 3x12-10-8-4
: 30 kg 2x12, 60 kg 2x6
Felt really good, for once. I finally had to admit I cant lift nothing after one hour of cardio
