    saratoga cycle

    I got a used saratoga cycle and am starting to use it and can't find instructions on how to use it, do you try to go for 2-3 minutes or have a harder restriction for 30 sec. How many do you try to do as a workout. This hand cycle is going to be bolted onto a versa trainer exercise that I've been doing for 6 months. My Versatrainer exercise is 6 stations with 3 sets of 20 reps. it takes about 20 minutes. Amy my wife has to help switch stations with the versa trainer and I should be independent with the Saratoga. Thanks for any advice would be appreciated

    Hi,

    You can switch up your workouts so you don't get tired of doing the same thing. If you want to work on endurance try a moderate to low resistance setting and try and go for a certain amount of time or distance. If you want to work on power/sprints try doing high intensity intervals where you work hard against a high resistance for a low amount of time. We have a couple of hand cycles at our facility and a really common workout scheme we do is 3 minutes forward trying to hold a certain rpm at a set resistance and then 3 minutes backwards doing the same thing. Hope this helps!
