    Wouldn't that be two? The bike and the trainer.

    But if it's a legit answer I'd go with that. Otherwise, just the bike.

    A big hill. Seriously. A long walk up a hill is one of the best workouts and jogging up is a real killer, especially for a Clydesdale like me.
     
  7. Whatcha want in the OT? A straight answer? :D
    OK, one of those big-A balls
     
  8. 12-oz curls, baby

    What I like about the eliptical is that you can switch between your arms and legs doing the work

    A Total Gym. It really does what they say, you don't need a spotter, and it's great if you don't have a lot of room to dedicate to workout equipment.

    Who?
    No clue who that is.

    I have used them for over 20 years.
    You do not need all the expensive junk to get a full body work out.
    For cardio all you need is a pair of shoes you can run in, some shadow boxing, jumping jacks.
     
  17. A chinup bar and a kettlebell can give you a complete body workout.

    A good pair of running shoes, in fact that is the only piece of workout equipment I own

    I tore my shoulder swinging a kettle bell improperly. I don't think I'm coordinated enough for them
