    Heart rate, calories etc, nah.
    I don't think it's far off.

    On an exercise bike on level 8 of 40 with no wind resistance, potholes, soi dogs,traffic lights or public houses

    Try coming down Doi Suthep. That's probably the equivalent

    Looks like it's time I stepped it up...

    Cadence is another name for bike pedaling speed. The average cadence on an exercise bike usually ranges between 50 and 110 rpms, depending on the rider, the resistance on the bike and the goal of the training. Beginners and occasional riders usually ride somewhere between 50 and 60 rpm. More advanced riders, especially those riding bikes with weighted flywheels as opposed to motorized exercise bikes, ride closer to 80 or 100 rpm when simulating level terrain.
    Intensity Considerations
    If you increase the resistance on the bike to simulate a hill, it becomes more challenging to maintain a fast cadence. When at a high level or resistance, the average cadence should be 60 to 80 rpm, notes Mad Dogg Athletics. A fitter exerciser can keep this cadence up at higher levels. If you can't maintain a resistance of 60 rpm, then the level of resistance you have on the bike may be too much for you and you risk injury to your knee joint. If you can easily pedal faster than 110 rpm, you're probably working at a level that is too easy for your abilities and need just a bit more resistance to get an effective, safe workout.

    I think we need to find out the model of Bollski's exercise bike before we pass judgement. It appears to have a wattage reading - this is the ultimate barometer of effort, if the in-built power meter is accurate. Bollski's 88 watts for the last session would indicate he has the leg and cardiovascular strength of spasticated sloth, but the bike is probably a pile of shite. Enlighten us, Bollski.

    Just had a look at that, that 88 watts is the average of the whole workout.

    I get it over 100watts for all but the first 2 and last 2 warm up and downs which come in at around 57 and 35 watts.

    This is me powering out the last one dot on the home straight at 124 revs a minute

    I specialise in this kind of stuff, like, write about it and shit. The bike, although not a great one, (it's the kind you see old ladies reading Hello magazine make a pedal revolution every other year on) seems to have a reliable power meter, although it probably needs calibrating, but let's not get greedy.

    What you need to do, Boll, in order to get fit (not lose weight, losing weight happens when you sign up to My Fitness Pal and look at exactly how many calories you're eating on a daily basis - I'd imagine you need to reduce yours to 2,100-ish to drop a few pounds) is find a wattage 'sweet spot' which is comfortably uncomfortable to maintain - get a reliable heart rate monitor to gauge this or just do it on feel - then do a succession of intervals at that power with five or so minutes recovery between. Mixing it up alleviates the boredom of those monotonous indoor endurance miles you're currently doing.

    ...and what of your diet?
    If your most fashionable workout obsessions and practices are never aligned with a decent and healthful dietary plan, then all for not, innit.


    Just an observation, lest a judgement.

    Continue on, gentlemen.

    despite the big storms, rain, and a short month, I managed 390,000 steps in February. The car breaking down helped, as did wife being in Thailand. I was surprisingly disappointed because I thought I could break the 400,000 barrier. Still a good result in the end though....

    ^ Nice one.You lost much weight doing it? I smashed the 40km barrier in an hour this morning with 30 seconds to spare, after taking three 30 second breaks

    They say that even the longest journey starts with the first step...

    I've been doing 30 minutes on the cross trainer followed by around 20 minutes weights every day now for a week, along with regular half kilometre swims. This I feel is sustainable. My diet is a lot better and the booze is much reduced over the week. No obvious signs of weight loss yet but I'm feeling and sleeping and awful lot better!

    The daughter took a few pics today...



    There's never a shortage of company whatever you're doing at our place. Tommy was strangely aroused when this pic was taken. Luckily the daughter didn't notice or that would have started a whole raft of questions!



    Yogi just laughs... he's seen it all before.

    I just keep on going, over 19 months now, but these are the last year from April 2 last year. Now twice a day 530 am start and then again 5pm. Each time 50 minutes to an hour. A lot more jogging than walking these days, but it is getting hot..

    Nice one, Mendy - working out next to the bar gets a double thumbs-up from the Slap camp.

    I notice this thread goes surprisingly quiet during the weekends. If you lot are out on the razz cramming deep-fried produce down the gullet, then you're clearly not taking this seriously.

    Weekends are an opportunity for day-long steady-state aerobic activity.
