Under table exercise bike or eliptical?



Recommended Posts

I've just come across these little exercise pedal bikes/elipticals online. Just curious if anyone has either one of them and how do you like it? I don't have the time to join a gym and don't have the room for a big bike or eliptical. Thought this might help. Any thoughts? I have a lot of arthritis in my right knee so I know the bigger version of these are good for the knees. Just wondering how the smaller ones are. Thanks!!!

@Lovin2lose

i also have bad arthritis, bending the knees carefully for me is beneficial. (and you too?)

i used the small bike at rehab after i broke my femur last year. i used it daily x2 for 8 weeks.

i liked it. its low impact/easy to use.

thanx bud, i now decided to order it - I'll send you the bill!!😂

btw - your weight loss is great, per your profile your DOS was 2016 - did you

recently have a revision? inquiry minds/nosey want to know!!

congrats on your weight loss. keep up the good work

Thanks for the link. Did you notice a difference in your knee while using it? Once I get back to work and start getting a paycheck again (LOL) I'm seriously thinking of getting one. Yes, aside from arthritis in my right knee, I have an injury that I'm dealing with as well. So I'm thinking something low impact would be the best bet. I just want to loosen up my knee and then start building up the muscle around it as well.

Yes, I did have surgery June 2016. I have not had a revision. Unfortunately I did have a 25lb gain and I'm now working on getting that back down. We have a cruise booked for July of next year, so I'd like to lose that before we go. So I'm hoping that using the exercise bike, I can get my knee ready for all of that walking!!!

I do a sit down job and to be honest I can't type and pedal at the same time. I do however use it at home when watching TV.

I borrowed a friend’s while at work. It took some time to get used to typing and pedaling at the same time 🤣. But after a bit I found I forgot I was using it...until the next morning—couldn’t figure out why my legs were so sore. I think it could be a benefit to you if you monitor your time using it.

I just got a small pedal exerciser as a gift. It's a little wobbly at the pedals so I'm going to have to fix that (I think it has to do with how I assembled it; I stink at it). Otherwise it's nice to use while watching TV. You can also use it to work out your arms if you place it on a table.
