My New Favorite Cardio Equipment!

It's called the Schwinn Airdyne AD2 Exercise Bike.



Those who are endurance athletes like triathlons or marathons, or seen the inside of NCAA championship level training facilities, or been inside of pro athlete training camps, or even watched one episode of The Ultimate Fighter, you have seen this equipment. Its especially popular for wrestlers, boxers, and fighters to lose weight to make their weight limit for their division. And there is a reason.

I ordered it from Amazon because I almost order everything from Amazon. Its the fastest way to get things, they have the best return policy, and 99% of the time they are the cheapest.

If the elliptical is for the Average Joe, this is for people who want to be exceptional. It's one of the HARDEST cardio you will ever do. On all the tests it ranks in the top 2 along with the Versaclimber

Things I like, its made by Schwinn, actually they own the Airdyne patent and they've been making it for decades to train athletes. So if its made by them, unlike other companies, its built to last. It's only recently been made for home use.

Its almost impossible to do it wrong, as long as you have the seat in the right height position, you can't go wrong.

It's scalable to anyone. It has infinite resistance, so meaning if you are out of shape go slow, if you are in great shape go harder and the resistance will just get harder and harder because it resists against air.

It's really easy on the joints, especially the knees. There is very few things that you can go this intense on that you won't get hurt in. That's the problem with so many cardio machines, they are not very intense. Due to the intensity then, its a time saver. You don't need to be on it for an hour nor should you, twenty minutes is probably the longest you want to be on it.

Just my 2 cents,
