It seems like exercise bikes have been around for a long time but they’re still one of the best ways to get your cardio exercise in. In fact, they’ve been around since they went mainstream back in 1993, back when they were the hottest thing in exercise. These days, they’re still a staple of home and commercial gyms everywhere. A good session on an exercise bike will give you a great anaerobic workout for your legs, abdominals and back muscles, as well as a great aerobic cardio session. You’ll get the benefits of riding a bike without leaving your home, making these a great investment into your health and fitness.
There are generally 3 types of exercise machines on the market:
Upright exercise bikes mimic the position of a normal bicycle where the rider leans forward to grasp the handlebars.
Recumbent bikes have a wider, bucket seat that allows users to pedal in a more comfortable position, which often works the gluts more strongly than upright bikes. They’re also great for those with knee or back injuries.
Spin bikes are similar to upright bikes, but they allow the rider to stand up and pedal, unlike an upright or recumbent bike.
There are some features you’ll want to consider when purchasing an exercise bike: look for models that have adjustable handlebars to suit your size, as well as ones that allow you to control the resistance. Some models have digital control panels and programs to allow you to monitor heart rate and manage distances and approximations of calories burned.
As always, make sure you include a stretching and a 10 minute warmup before a session on the bike. This will help avoid injuries, and let you really get into it. A 10 minute warm down period is also a great way to aid recovery.
It’s also worth having a look at interval training techniques for a proven way to get the most out of your workouts.
