Lance Armstrong Interval Training

I just got home from the Blue Jays game where I sat through what has to be their worst game of the season. I left when the score was 12-3. Ouch. At least the pizza was good.

And on my bike ride home I was passing other bikes, streetcars, and even some taxis, all thanks to my Lance Armstrong-like biking power.

Okay, maybe I'm not that good, but I'm pretty quick, all thanks to the recent interval training I've been doing on the stationary bike.

Now some folks don't believe that you can get a good interval workout on a bike, but I believe it is the safest and most effective way to do fat burning intervals.

If you don't agree, you can try some of the other methods I mention in this free report:

=> Interval training workout ideas for you
Over 90% of interval training fitness and fat loss research has been done in scientific facilities using the trusty old stationary bike.

It's safer than a treadmill (running at high speeds definitely has some risks) and much more effective than an elliptical.

And again, it's proven - by science and experience - to work.

So personally, I'm fine with just using the stationary bike when I do intervals, but if you want some other ideas, or if you just want to learn more about interval training, then grab my free report here:

I actually love your bodyweight cardio style workouts. My wife and I did one last night while are 2 toddlers watched. :) Feeling great today.

Sprints are effective, but bw cardio can be done in your living room.

On a side note...

I got inspired by your Internet Independence website. Started 3 sites 2 months ago. First month I made $2.96. Second month I made $43.50. Pretty cool.

Thanks for all of you help and inspiration. Keep up the good work Craig!
