    I did a lot of research previously on rowers. I didn't end up buying one, but, as mentioned, the Concept II Model is the "Gold Standard". I also thought the Sole SR500 looked good, and was priced...

    I've been down the same path. Looked at multi-vitamins from a reputable fitness brand, and wondered exactly the same thing. Still taking the Men's One A Day here, along with a few other things.

    I think I misspoke. During the main summer season, I’ve still been lifting 1 or 2 times a week.

    My thought was I can “cut” during the cycling season, just on the basis of the calories burnt while...

    Here are 2 pictures to give you an idea of where I'm at. These are from May 2021. I'd say very little progress since then. And these were right after a workout, so these are "best case"
