Last night I went Turbo training with Rachel, in her garage! This was my version of last weeks GFFE challenge - work out to a TV progamme. We cycled to an episode of 'Supernatural'. In laymans terms a 'turbo' is a treadmill for a bike, allowing you to mount your bike in such a way that you can ride it without going anywhere. Perfect for dark winter evenings, when you want the best of both worlds - a bike ride AND the TV!
You can see here that the bike is mounted on a roller and spins as you pedal. You can increase the resistance by squeesing the cable seen here on the floor attached to turbo on the right -once the bike is in position, the cable sits on the handle bar for ease of use.
I really enjoyed to the session and look forward to many more over the winter!
GFFE is hosted by by Rebecca over at Weight Wars.
