todays workout

30 min run @ 7mph, 30 min elliptical and 30 min bike. Average heart rate 156 bpm for 90 minutes. peak heart rate 177 bpm. Not bad for a formerly fat out of shape old guy.

Not bad, but substitute something much cooler for elliptical. Leave that for the broads.

Swimming, lifting, more biking, or just watching TV. Anything is better than elliptical.

I like the watching tv part. Actually the elliptical has been a staple of my workouts for the last 8 months, I have the resistance turned up pretty high (for me).
I'll definitely be phasing it out as the weather gets better and I can bike/run outside.

It's actually decent cardio, too bad it looks so stupid when you are doing it though.

Don't listen to CP.
If you want to look stupid using an elliptical, that is your choice.

Me, however, I agree with CP.

It is a well known fact that working out nekkid in a sauna with a shake weight while 6 nekkid dudes surround you with their schlongs in your face is 76% less gay than using an elliptical.

You know the elliptical must make you look really bad if a guy that wears spandex 24/7 is making fun of it
