Recumbent cycling – The benefits and how to make it work for you!
30 Mins Per Day!
Paired with a healthy, varied diet, most of us will get optimum results with just 30 mins of recumbent exercise a day.
FACT: The more muscles used the easier it is to work within your heart rate zone. Recumbent cycling involves all the major lower body muscles in the backside, quads, hamstrings and calves while your arms are free for an upper body workout. No other exercise works such a large amount of muscles, in a comfortable position so you can find it easier to exercise for a longer period of time.
FACT: The more lean muscles your body has the faster your metabolism. You will burn more calories at rest. Recumbent cycling works all the muscles evenly and doesn’t rely on one group for all the power.
The Secret to Smart Cycling
Recumbent cycling – Your ‘laid back’ ride to health and fitness!
You sink into your comfortable seat, step onto your foot pedals, choose one of the many programs and you’re off!!
The seat puts your hips in a natural position where your back is supported and your posture is correct. You cycle at a pace that you know you can keep up with for as long as you need to.
The comfort Factor – The biggest single reason for most of us to quit a program is because of discomfort in one form or another. Whether its ‘Saddle Soreness’ caused by the narrow seats or the over use of one particular muscle in the legs as with a regular upright bike. These problems are overcome with the ergonomic design of the recumbent cycles, it tilts your pelvis back giving a natural curve to the spine and spreads the workload over all the muscles in the legs so you will be breezing through your workouts, wondering where the time went!
