So heres the deal,
I am getting shoulder surgery (a Bankart repair for a labrum tear). The only exercise I will be able to do is pretty much stationary biking... After 3 months I will be able to run, so that will switch things up a bit.
I searched for the topic, and couldn't find much (there was a topic about spin bikes vs regular exercise bikes) that fit.
In everyone's experience, what is better? To get a decent spin bike or a decent trainer. I would probably be looking for a used spin bike around 200 bucks, or a trainer which would amount to a bit less than that.
There are some considerations though. For a trainer it would seem like I would be wearing out my road bike a good bit and im not sure if its worth it, since i am gonna be putting a ton of "miles" on whatever bike a choose. On the other hand, a spin bike is a bit more expensive (potentially a lot more expensive) and i guess takes up some extra space, which doesn't really matter to me.
Also, as far as a workout, I was wondering which one in general has the potential to get higher resistance. From what i have read it seems like spin bikes take the cake, but I have no idea in reality.
Any help would be much appreciated. And I apologize in advance if the topic has been raised before, I couldn't find anything though.
