Does anyone know if you can use a slide board to get a decent cardio workout?

At the moment I'm doing an 80 minute mid-week bike ride/tubo session at ~75% of my max HR to build cardiovascular endurance.

Could I swap this for a slide board session? Or is it impossibly difficult to hit those kind of heart rates without superhuman motivation (compared to say, using a turbo trainer)?

You should try and use the slide board for technique purposes rather than cardio. The faster and longer you go on one, the less likely it is to actually benefit your skating.
I don't no if you can use it for cardiovascular as I have never tried but I wouldn't advise it. Hope this helps

Cheers Harry, I think I'll hold off on the purchase.
