Not many and it's easier to cut down on chocolate IMVHO.

Not enough to make the pain worthwhile I reckon.

DrNortherner Sun 28-Sep-08 14:06:22

Yes but cutting down on chocolate does not give you toned thighs and an arse like rock grin

I would say close to around 650

Is an arse like rock important after the age of about 18?

What are you going to be doing with it, cutting diamonds? grin

DrNortherner Sun 28-Sep-08 14:18:25

The prize goes to Bellavita - it was 590.

I was impressed anyway!

How do you know? How is it measured?

I'd say less than one might imagine. No more than 250.

250 - its my final answer.

Bloody hell. Do you actually enjoyn it though and is it suitable for someone who doesn't normally esercise ?

DrNortherner Sun 28-Sep-08 14:19:41

I wore a heart monitor and it calcualated calories burnt.

theinsider Sun 28-Sep-08 14:20:08

590 in only 40 mins, that is good. Well done. smile

eekamoose Sun 28-Sep-08 14:20:10


Its a lot like hard work though isn't it? Is it the one where you're on stationery bicycles all the time?

I guess you have to be pretty fit to start off with.

<<<did someone mention a prize?>>>

DrNortherner, I must fess up - I used to spin myself.

DrNortherner Sun 28-Sep-08 14:20:24

Yes I do enjoy it, but it is bloody hard work.

If yuo don't exercise already I would recommend something else first.

spinning classes are wonderful. not as brillinat as ther eal thing, but when you cant go out for a long all day bike ride, they are the next best thing.

DrNortherner Sun 28-Sep-08 14:32:54

I think I have the biu stitch - I hated them at first, now I do 3/4 classes a week and feel terrible if I have to miss one...

biu = bug
