8 Key Benefits Of Regular Use Of Stationary Bikes. 08077949479 by nduka84(m): 1:54pm On Jun 22, 2019
(1) WEIGHT LOSS

If you’re looking to shed some pounds, an exercise bike is a very efficient way to burn calories. Riding a stationary bike for 30 minutes at a time can burn anywhere between 200-300 calories (depending on the users weight).

2.) TONING

Cyclists are known for having amazing legs. It makes sense: when you’re pedaling away on a bike, your quads, glutes, and calves are hard at work propelling the bike. Bonus: if you’re working that handlebar, you’re giving your upper body a workout, too.

3.) MUSCLE STRENGTHENING

Stationary bikes work tirelessly to strengthen the major muscle groups that support the back, leg, thigh, and hamstring muscles. There are 2 different strokes that are used on an exercise bike: the push and the pull. Pushing down on the pedals is a great way to strengthen the quads, while pulling up is a great way to strengthen the hamstrings. Bonus: exercise bikes cause less stress on the knees than outdoor bikes since you’re riding on even terrain.

4.) EASE ON THE JOINTS

Running, jogging, and many team sports and classes can be hard on your joints because of the amount of impact involved. An exercise bike is an exceptional way to get your heart rate up without putting excess stress on those precious joints. In fact, a bike puts even less stress on the back, hips, knees and ankles than walking. Proper form on the bike means your knee should bend just slightly on the down pedal stroke. If it’s too bent or too straight, you’ll need to adjust that saddle.

5.) CONVENIENCE

The best part about an exercise bike is that you can use it whenever, wherever. If the weather outside is too hot, too cold, or too rainy, who cares? You can keep a recumbent bike in your home office, bedroom, or patio, giving you the chance to work out after dinner, before breakfast, or during a break at work. Plus, when you’re on your machine, you can catch up on your favorite TV shows, read the newspaper or a book, or keep an eye on your little ones.

6.) CARDIO

Cardio exercise works to lower high blood pressure, regulate blood sugar, and prevent heart attacks. Not to mention, it’s a great way to lose weight. Hopping on an exercise bike is an exceptional way to work your body because it will help your heart become more efficient at pumping blood. It also works hard to increase the good cholesterol and lower the bad cholesterol in your body. To put it simply, riding an exercise bike for 30 minutes a day for a handful of times per week can extend your life.

7.) HEART AND HEALTH BENEFITS

Riding an exercise bike can strengthen your heart and lungs, while also improving your body’s ability to utilize oxygen. Using a stationary bike regularly can also help regulate high blood pressure and improve respiratory function. For best results, it’s recommended that you exercise five days a week for 30 minutes.

8.) ENERGY-BOOSTING

According to a study published in the journal Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics, bike riding improved energy levels by 20 percent and decreased fatigue by 65 percent. Why, you ask? It’s simple: cycling triggers your brain to release the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is linked to energy.

Now that you’re familiar with the benefits of exercise stationary bikes or machines, it’s time to find one that works for you and your lifestyle. To ensure you’re choosing the best bike for you, ask yourself the following questions:

Do you want an upright bike, an spinning cycle or a recumbent bike (this type of bike allows you to pedal from a more reclined position)?
Do you need something smaller that folds up, or do you have room for something big and bulky ?
What do you want to spend?
