Tired of boring cardio?

I know this sounds crazy, but I hate CARDIO, so much so that I dont do it

Today I put on my heart monitor and went out on my crf50 stunter and was shocked at how good of a cardio workout it was. BPM stayed around 130-140 with spikes up to 160 (probably during a long wheelie or stoppie). I was out for an hour and it felt like maybe 15 minutes.

This post is not so much trying to persuade you guys to buy 50cc stunt bikes, but rather to find something that you enjoy more then running or biking to nowhere in your climate controlled gym.

BTW- riding wheelies is a great forearm workout!

I actually "bike to nowhere" in my un-climate-controlled garage, on my Life-Cycle. I do have a fan to help move around the 100* heat.

well, reading my post again i know it sounds retarded, but it is a lot more fun then riding a stationary bike, and you actually work on a skill as well. to each his own, i was just super sick of elipticals and treadmills, riding the 50 just reminded me to think outside the box.

I read (a LOT) while I'm on the bike. Half-Price Books is my friend...

Since Sunday is my only day off from work and lifting,
I try to take my MX quads out as much as I can to get a bit of "cardio" in as well.
