    So I managed to find someone selling their first Generation Skierg for a reasonable price. So I snapped it up as a brand new one in Canada is expensive. Have wanted one for awhile now.

    Have managed to get a few workouts in so far. Damn it is really taxing and an whole body workout.



    Had rotator cuff issues - training BJJ has caused a lot of wear and tear. Anyhow I had to take a few months of doing BJJ - going to get back to it this week sometime. Have been slowly working on getting my rotator cuff, shoulder, deltoid better (mainly range of motion and pain at certain angles).

    Any, outside of running, is going to be my favourite form of conditioning.

    If you have not tried one I recommend it.

    Finding it a lot more challenging than the rower.

    I used it several times (this version) without even knowing what it was a while back. I enjoy it more than a rower and it kicks butt fast if you don't pace yourself or go all out.

    LOL, for sure. I first time I did it I did a 2000m low pace to warm up and then 5x500m. I went balls out on the first 500m and got about 200-300m in and was burnt. Paced myself better the last 4.

    Eventually want to upgrade to the 2nd Gen - you can pull one cable at a time.

    $700

    A brand new 2nd Gen up here in Canada is anywhere from $1600 to almost 1900$ after taxes.

    I also picked up an Inversion Table at Costco. Going to set it up tonight.

    yeh thats reasonable for a c2. if it s anything liek the rower the main difference between the later versions is the handles and the computer, which are both easy to replace.

    You might get more benefit from inversion boots. My mother used to own an inversion table and it didn't do anything for me.
