When it comes to an indoor workout that really gets you going places, it’s time to make space (if you can) for an exercise bike. While it’s grown in popularity through the ‘spinning class’ phenomena, it’s also great for those people who either spend a lot of their time working from home or just simply do not have the time to go to the gym. As they are often in the higher price range of fitness equipment, it’s good to know exactly how to approach training on an exercise bike.
Here are some of our top tips.
The most important thing when starting out on an exercise bike is to take it slowly. It may feel like you’re onto a winner from the off, but gradually adding more intensity will serve you better in the long run.
Kick if off with a gentle 25-35 minute session, and give this workout a go.
Once you become comfortable with that, add a 1 minute to your workout each time.
Once you feel like you’re ready, take to the internet to find online classes that will push you onto that next level. There are a wide range of classes, so make you choose the right ability range.
There are so many benefits to having an exercise bike. However, to avoid injury, it’s very important to not get carried away during a session. Here are some suggestions of how to stay safe whilst on the bike.
