Benefits Of Indoor Cycling
Strengthen and Tone
Training on indoor cycling bikes will strengthen and tone your leg muscles. Primary muscles: quadriceps (front of the thighs), glutes (bottom), hamstrings (back of the thighs), calves (back of the leg below then knee) and hip flexors (bottom of the stomach). Hill climbs will also help to strengthen your torso.
Indoor cycling training is a very effective form of exercise for weight loss. The number of calories burned will depend on your age, gender, fitness levels and effort. A young man can burn around 500 calories cycling for 30 minutes at around 17mph. Once you’ve finished your cycle your body continues working to repair the muscles used during your workout. This burns calories even once you’ve finished exercising.
Exercising on indoor cycling bikes is an effective and simple form of cardiovascular exercise. Cardio training can help you prepare for marathons or just help you deal better with daily demands. A healthy cardiovascular system increases the supply of oxygen to your blood and the supply of energy to your body. It helps reduce your risk of stroke and disease and can lower blood pressure.
Endorphin Rush & Stress Relief
Releases hormones that can improve your mood, help you sleep better and relieves stress.
Improve Your Sport
An indoor cycling bike can be more than a piece of home gym equipment. It can allow for specific training focused towards the discipline of road cycling. The controlled environment that an indoor cycling bike produces can help improve and track your cycling fitness as well as improve your technique. Indoor cycling bikes let you work on the elements you need to improve on, whatever the weather! You'll really notice the difference when you take your road bike for a spin at the weekend or when the lighter, warmer months come round.
Low Impact Exercise
The low impact nature of indoor bikes make them a good option if you want to lessen any risk of injury or strain. Their smooth motion and low impact action combine to make a workout that is easy on your muscles and joints. As long as your bike is properly configured and set up in line with your biomechanics the pressure is taken off of knees and ankles making indoor cycling a popular alternative to higher impact activities such as running.
