    Question What are some "Fun" exercise equipment I could buy?

    Not sure if these exactly would be called exercise equipment, but basically just replacements for the typical boring treadmill or stairstepper -- something that burns just as many calories, and is fun to use, something like a ping pong table perhaps? Something I could do at home...

    I don't know why but I'm having trouble thinking of some, have any you'd recommend?

    i'm assuming you have running shoes - running outside can be fun. just don't have a set path. explore, while running.

    I've heard many people say that the best thing for long term weight loss is to find something you like to do that is physically exerting. baseball, basket ball, bicycle, swim...etc. A piece of exercise equipment isn't always made of iron or something that only moves on a certain track.

    I do 8hrs+ of cardio a week (mix of HIIT & LISS); I never use cardio 'machines'. Road cycling, spinning (bike on rollers), jumping rope, & walking is where all of my cardio comes from. So that would be bike+gear+rollers, jump rope, & shoes.

    How much LISS, how much HIIT? I ask because I do a lot of cardio and want to change my routine for a bit (I do insanity workouts about 4 times a week, since having finished the program). The idea of redlining sounds appealing to me, I just am wary of overtraining. I am in very good condition as far as cardio goes---what's a good volume and ratio for LISS/HITT with a 3 day starting strength split?

    Measly reps to come!

    45min LISS on the rollers in the mornings Mon-Fri, 30min HIIT jumping rope Mon/Fri/Sat, 20-30mi. bike ride Wed (~1.5hrs), 50mi+ Sun (~3hrs).

    I do a 2-day split, twice a week (Tu./Thu./Sat./Sun.).
