Upper-body cardio for leg-prohibitive injuries?
January 6, 2014 6:22 PM Subscribe
I've been diagnosed with acute prepatellar bursitis in my left leg after a bicycle accident. My doctor has ordered me off of leg-based cardio for the next month. What are my alternatives for upper-body-exclusive cardio?

My gym has an arm bike, which I plan on using, and I intend to continue with my regular upper-body strengh training, but I'm wondering how many other interesting varieties of cardio are out there.
To be extra-clear, I'm not supposed to walk long distances, engage in any repetitive motion on that leg (bending, flexing), or anything of the sort. He wants me off the leg as much as possible.
