Stationary Cycling and Stationary Bikes
are many reasons to consider stationary cycling, but the biggest
is its impact on your health and metabolism. The smooth and constant
nature of a stationary bike's pedal stroke encourages good cadence.
This translates to being able to attain the correct heart rate training
zone to optimize fat burning and challenge the cardiovascular system.
Whether you choose a recumbent or upright, you can't go wrong. Cycling
is non-impact and a great weight loss tool.
By focusing on the workout and not the time, cycling indoors can
beat the boredom associated with at home exercise. The digital displays
on most home-use units keep track of your heart rate or pulse, your
speed and the number of calories burned per session. By adhering
to a planned program, you will see and feel results quickly. Simply
riding hard enough to get into "The Zone" can make the
workout fly by.
Combine activities. Try to read books, or listen to video or audio
learning tapes. Watch videos of racing footage, and sprint while
the guys on the screen do. Listen to music or radio newscasts. Public
media channels often run international newscasts from all over the
world at night, which is a prime time for using indoor cycling.
Even catch up on the evening news all the while burning fat and
improving cardiovascular function.
Try watching your favorite movie while you get in your training.
Or try music. Music is suggested to time your interval efforts,
so turn on the stereo or pop on your headphones and spin your heart
