Why we love indoor cycling!
Exercise bikes strengthen your glutes, quads, hamstrings, hip flexors and calves which make them one of our favourite exercises in the gym.
- Adjust the seat when your pedal is at its lowest (or farthest forward for recumbent bikes) your knee should only bend slightly. You should not have to flex your foot or point your toes to stay in contact with the pedal
- Place the balls of your feet on the bike pedals and use the foot straps making them tight enough that your feet don’t accidentally pull out of them.
- Sit up straight and keep your shoulder blades squeezed down and back, and bring your belly button back toward your spine controlling you abs.
Start peddling steadily and once the screen is on, press “Quick Start” and adjust the resistance to what you feel necessary.
pedal as quick as you can.
TIP: Pedal as quick as you can, hit your goal, make sure you cool down and record your time!
Cycling overall is a great exercise. But one of the main obvious reasons why people prefer indoor cycling is that “it lets you stay indoor” and still you can get all the benefits of cycling. One of the cycling exercise benefits is that it increases the density of human bones. That’s why it is very helpful for children as well as the elderly to ride cycles. Regular indoor cycling can make ones’ heart and lungs stronger – as cycling eases the blood circulation process of human body, it makes heart and lungs stronger than usual.
