通过骑自行车,无论是在户外还是在健身房,你正在提高你的耐力,健身能力和心血管健康。更重要的是,你也在锻炼和训练你腿上的每一块肌肉,增强你下半身的力量,创造肌肉的定义。骑自行车可以燃烧大量的卡路里,加速你的新陈代谢,这意味着这种形式的运动也可以对抗脂肪,促进你的减肥努力。

为了在骑自行车的时候得到最好的有氧运动,在每次骑自行车的时候挑战自己是很重要的。随着你骑车计划的进展,你应该继续增加每次锻炼的阻力和持续时间。如果你在户外骑自行车,在路线上加一些山。如果你在一辆固定的自行车上,继续加大油门。如果你在上旋转课,不要害怕把那个旋钮向右转,增加阻力。为了燃烧最多的卡路里,你的自行车运动应该让你呼吸急促,汗流浃背。

From the time you were a child, biking has most likely been a part of your life and a popular activity you turn to for fitness and fun. You probably started off with a tricycle, then progressed to a bike with training wheels, and before you knew it, those training wheels were off and you were a seasoned biker. The good news is that biking is not only an enjoyable hobby, it is also a great form of exercise and one of the best cardio-aerobic exercises out there.

 

Benefits of Biking

 

By hopping on a bike, either outdoors or in a gym, you are improving your endurance, fitness abilities and your cardiovascular health. What's more is that you are also toning and working every muscle in your leg, enhancing your lower body strength and creating muscle definition. Biking burns an abundance of calories and revs up your metabolism, which means this form of exercise also fights fat and facilitates your weight loss efforts.

 

Easy on Your Joints

 

Another huge benefit of biking is that the sport is kind to your joints, and unlike running and other high impact activities, it will not likely lead to knee complications. Provided you don't fall off your bike or have an unfortunate accident, this movement will not lead to injury. Biking is a great physical activity regardless of your age or medical condition. If you suffer from chronic pain or arthritis, it is a preferred method of exercise. Biking could even be beneficial during rehabilitation, as long as you follow your therapist's orders and don't overexert yourself.

 

Versatility

 

Biking is an extremely versatile activity and can be performed pretty much anywhere. A perfect weekend activity would be to take the family on a nice long bike ride. You can mix up your routes so it never gets old--bike along the beach, a park, or even through the mountains if you're extremely adventurous. Biking is the perfect exercise if you're on vacation, as you will be able to check out some undiscovered scenery while fitting in a workout. You can also join a biking group, and even gather up some friends and start your own biking club.

 

You can also use a stationary bike in a gym, or purchase one for your home, and reap the same fitness and health benefits. Another great way to fit biking into your fitness routine is to participate in a spinning class. This class offers you an intense biking experience, and the chance to follow an experienced instructor who will ensure you challenge yourself and burn maximum calories. The class, which is at least an hour long, combines strenuous climbs with short sprints, and is the ultimate biking workout. Each bike contains a knob that controls intensity, enabling you to add and take away resistance as you choose.

 

The Best

 

In order to get the best cardio-aerobic workout while biking, it is important you challenge yourself during each biking session. You should continue to increase the resistance and duration of each workout as your biking plan progresses. If you're biking outdoors, add some hills to your route. If you're on a stationary bike, continue to crank up the level. If you're taking a spinning class, don't be afraid to turn that knob to right and add more resistance. To burn the most calories, your biking workout should leave you short of breath and drenched in sweat.
