I used both in nearby CrossFit gym together with a c2 rower. With the bike you can train easy and also hard, and can use whole body. If you like an upper body workout you can still leave your legs on the side and use only arms.
Hey everyone, my wife and I are moving into a smaller house so I’m having to get rid of some gym equipment. I’ll only have room in the house for either an assault bike, or a ski erg, or MAYBE both. I already have the bike. I’m drawn to the ski erg because it has what seems to be a greater upper body component that seems like it could be beneficial for my climbing/mountaineering. It also has a much smaller footprint if I screw it into the wall. Anyone have thoughts on the relative advantages between the two, especially in terms of training benefits?
