    And yes....it is hard. And as Pizz says...its less convenient. ...Too friggin bad. If it was easy everyone would do it.

    Keeping good form mitigates some of the injury concerns though.
    I have bad knees and ankles from 10+ years of basketball and hockey abuse....2 surgeries....its extremely difficult for me to stay in shape, because everything KILLS those parts of my legs. that's why i have to use machines.
