  • Conditioning basement

    Does anyone have recommendations for conditioning for a low-ceiling basement. I have about 4-5 inches of space from the top of my head to the ceiling. I would prefer an airbike, but I don't know if that would work. A bulletproof solution is a rower, but my experience with HIIT is, that it is just superior on an airbike.

    I have a low ceiling basement and have a Rogue Echo bike, no issue.

      May I ask how tall you are?

        I use an assault air bike. I'm 6' 1", with the seat at a comfortable height (fully extended leg at bottom) I am 6" 4" from the ground while seated. I don't stand while riding but I don't think I'd want to ride it with a ceiling less than 7'.

        I put mine in the garage, it has wheels so it can easily be wheeled to the side.

        Interesting side note--I was looking at the Rogue bike but when I contacted them to ask if they would honor the warranty if I used it in my garage they were non-committal so I went with this and have been very happy: https://www.amazon.com/Assault-Fitne...4075998&sr=8-2

          Smokes why wouldn't they honor it if you used it in a garage?

            Concerns about rusting I imagine. Here is a snip of the response:

              5' 10" (178cm). I stand on occasion during HIIT and don't hit my head.

                Get a sledge, wheelbarrow and shovel and after a couple weeks of HIIT with those implements you can dig enough of your basement out to fit anything you want

                if you are open to doing some conditioning outside you can find cheap sleds, or get some farmers handles and slam balls. It kind of stinks in the winter ... and the summer. #midwestproblems
