Bicycle riding

It is the bike that becomes an excellent alternative to running and has a number of advantages in front of it: the load on the joints and bones is significantly reduced, but at the same time it effectively trains important muscles of the body and actively burns hated calories.

In winter, cycling can be replaced by exercising on a stationary bike, which also allows you to control the pulse and pressure, counts calories and has other parameters. Winding kilometers in the gym, you can simultaneously solve matters over the phone, relax and relax, with excessive fatigue, which is not always possible while riding outdoors.

Many people choose a bike for weight loss, not only to lose weight, but also great fun in the fresh air.

Whatever is chosen for training, bike or exercise bike, it is important to know the following rules:

  • on the saddle you need to get tight, slightly tilt the torso forward and shift the body weight part of the hands;
  • the height of the saddle should be set so that lowering the pedal to the bottom point, you could completely straighten the leg, but at the same time, do not saddle in the saddle from side to side, trying to reach the pedal too far down;
  • while moving, the feet and ankles make cyclically repetitive movements in a circle under the center of gravity or slightly ahead;
  • breathing should be arbitrary, rhythmic, multiple and synchronized with the work of the feet;
  • both legs must work with equal effort;
  • head, back and arms do not take part in the movement, but remain motionless.

The back during movement should be straight, and shoulders relaxed. The most common mistakes when riding a bicycle are stoop, in which the normal breathing process goes beyond the norm, as well as ignoring the norms for setting the correct seat height.
