Recumbant stationary bike

I have a ton of foot tendinitis, so I have been told I cannot walk on the treadmill or do the elliptical machine for awhile. Is the recumbant stationary bike good to do for aerobics, toning and weight loss?

Sure, anything that gets your heart rate up is good.

Re: Recumbant stationary bike

My gym has this cycle thing, can't remember the name, but when I had a small tear in my achilles (spelling) I couldn't do the treadmill or elliptical either. I used this cycle machine and if you go fast enough and put it on a higher resistance it does work. You're sitting down like you're riding a bike, but instead of cycling with your feet, you do the same rotation with your arms working your upperbody. Maybe someone else can help you out with the name of this cardio exercise. It did help tone!
