Cycling has the reputation of golden transportation, which saves time and effort, and is cost-effective. Cycling at 19 km/h consumes 350-550 calories. Persisting in cycling can improve the heart and lungs and achieve the goal of losing weight. Why not learn about the benefits of cycling?
maintenance of musculoskeletal
The bones are well stimulated when riding, which promotes the precipitation of calcium in the bones, thereby strengthening the bones. Bone not only plays a supporting role but also has the hematopoietic function of storing calcium. Exercise the gastrocnemius, gluteal and quadriceps muscles, thereby improving muscle strength, preventing bone damage, and maintaining bone joints, slowing down joint degeneration and aging.
Must increase basal metabolism
During the cycling process, the basal metabolism can be accelerated, and the speed of burning calories and fat will be accelerated, so as to achieve the purpose of losing weight, and in addition, it can better shape the body.
Can improve the heart and lungs
The heartbeat speed during cycling can be changed according to the riding speed and terrain, which is equivalent to the combination of aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise. Long-term heartbeat can increase the contractility of the myocardium and improve the heart and lungs.
Maintain blood vessels
Cycling can speed up the heart rate and promote blood circulation throughout the body. During the rapid flow of blood, it can rub the walls of blood vessels well, relax smooth muscles, help dilate blood vessels, and eliminate carbon monoxide, thereby maintaining cardiovascular health and improving vascular function.
Riding is good, but you need to pay attention to these 4 points
1.Mind your seat choice
Many people like a wide and heavy seat and feel that it is more comfortable to sit on, not to say that whether the sitting posture is comfortable or not depends on its shape. In addition, you need to pay attention to the installation height and position of the seat. When riding, the seat cannot maintain its posture for a long time when it is too high, and the friction area will be enlarged; the seat that is too low will increase the pressure of the contact area, which will also cause physical discomfort.
2.Shunting has corresponding special attention
Sit upright on the saddle, the handlebars and the frame sills are in a straight line, put the heels on the pedals, keep the legs straight in the middle, and ensure that the knees or feet cannot be bent too much when riding so that it will be better exert force.
It is not allowed to maintain the same body position for a long time, and it is not allowed to ride for a long time. It is necessary to follow the gradual standard and combine various sports methods. Do not perform surprise riding in a short period of time, and do not ride for a long time on relatively poor roads.
4.Warm up before riding
Usually, ride 2-3 times a week, and there should be no fatigue when riding the next day. If you want to ride for a long time, you should prepare for activities in advance, and do some relaxing activities after riding.
