This article is part of The 100 Days Offensive. Go to Day 53 or Day 55.
For an offensive, one needs allies or helpers. Here is mine.
I bought this ergometer in May 2019 on eBay. The main advantage compared to my bike is the usual absence of rain in my basement and the lack of aggressive car drivers at the same location. Rain during winter in Northern Germany is very little fun and and a car driver put me in hospital with a broken clavicle once. So both advantages really help my motivation.
And that motivation shows: Yesterday I finished my 200th hour workout on it. I managed to "ride" 5955 km or 3700 miles in that time.
Usually I have an average output of 150W during an exercise. The calculation to convert the given data into lost body weight is left as an exercise to the reader.
