There are multiple ways you can improve your health by incorporating regular physical exercise into your daily routine. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, if you spend 150 minutes a week (that’s just over 20 minutes a day) , engaging in moderate intensity cardio exercise, you can help manage your weight better, boost your immune system, and reduce your risk of developing disease.
But, not everybody is in good enough condition to start a running regime. And, with summer approaching, it’s not always easy (or healthy) to find time to exercise in the summer heat! Getting your daily cardio workout on a Stationary bike in your home is a great way to not only get your daily cardio workout, but also do it without worrying about time, weather, and traffic!
What are the benefits of exercising on a stationary bike?
If you can do 30 minutes daily exercising on a stationary bicycle , you’ll help up your daily calorie burn. Burning a greater number of daily calories means that you will have an easier time managing your weight. If you go at a moderate pace for 30 minutes and weigh 155 pounds, expect to burn about 260 calories. If you weigh more, or work at a higher intensity, you’ll burn even more.
Exercise such as jogging, basketball, soccer, or team sports, put significant pressure on your joints (i.e. knees!) – thanks to the impact involved. A stationary cycle enables you to get your heart pumping without putting extra stress on your joints. A Stationary Bike is especially good for people who are more than 50 pounds overweight because it reduces mechanical stress on the back, hips, knees and ankles — even when compared to walking..
Riding a stationary bicycle counts as cardiovascular exercise. Regular cardio exercise helps lower high blood pressure, regulates blood sugar and may prevent heart attacks, especially if you’ve already suffered from one. Regular use of a stationary bike helps your heart become more efficient at pumping blood. It also increases the amount of good cholesterol while lowering the amount of bad cholesterol in your body.
