Fitnex R55SG Recumbent Cycle
Fitnex R55SG Recumbent Cycle are designed so you sit lower to the ground with your legs out in front of you rather than sitting up with your legs below you. Working out on a stationary recumbent bike or riding a recumbent bicycle on the road have similar health benefits as regular bicycles. They provide cardiovascular exercise, help you watch your weight and increase your strength. Recumbents also have the additional benefits of better safety and more comfort, and they put less stress on your knees and hips.
Cardiovascular, or aerobic, exercises use large muscle groups such as the quadriceps and hamstring muscles of the thighs and the gluteal muscles of the buttocks. Recumbent cycling is a form of cardiovascular exercise and might help to strengthen your heart and lungs and improve your body’s ability to use oxygen. Regular cardiovascular exercise can help decrease your heart rate and blood pressure and make breathing easier, according to WebMD. Speak to your doctor before starting any cardiovascular exercise program, including recumbent cycling.
Increased Strength and Weight Management
Cycling utilizes the large muscles in your legs, thighs and buttocks to build more lean body mass. Recumbent cycling also builds strength in the lower extremities and, according to an article published in 2007 in “Clinical Biomechanics,” can be used for strength and rehabilitation exercises to help elderly people recover sit-to-stand and step-up movements. Cycling also burns calories, making it easier to lose and maintain weight.
Safety and Comfort
Recumbent cycling is safer than upright cycling due to a larger seat, back support and lower height. According to the article in “Clinical Biomechamics,” the use of a recumbent bicycle provides advantages for muscle and cardiovascular training in patient groups with impaired mobility. The larger seat, back rest and semireclining position is more comfortable than a traditional small bicycle seat with an upright posture.
Less Stress on Knee and Hip
Recumbent cycling puts less stress on the knee and hip, so it may be beneficial for people with arthritis. According to an article on WebMD, recumbent bikes extend the angle of the knee joint so that the knee and hip aren’t flexing so much with each rotation. This means that a recumbent bicycle might cause less hip and knee pain than a traditional bicycle.
