Cycling – the perfect way to be physically active
Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance you must keep moving!
Modernized over the years and still today, riding a bike can give you a good figure and will fill you with good energy.
The bike includes controlling movement in a stable position. Because most of the weight of the body is on the bike there is less difficulty on the back and hips. Driving with a certain pace accelerates the heart beat and the breathing and is a good way to improve cardiovascular health and strengthen the legs. It strengthens the heart, lowers blood pressure and keeps the tone, buttocks and stomach thigh. Especially women have many benefits from this activity.
Don’t push yourself to hard while driving, hold one pace that suits you best and from time to time have a rest on some bench and of course drink water. After this you will feel spiritually fulfilled and you will sleep like a baby. The activation of your muscles will be welcomed after 8 hours sitting at work.
Is it safe to ride a bike if you have problems with your knees in the same time?
The pain in the knees could push away people from exercising, but inactivity can lead to muscle weakness, weight gain and chronic fatigue. Compared with other exercises cycling is a friend of the knees and is often used in rehabilitation. It is best to avoid riding on hills if you have a problem with your knees. If you have an artificial knee or hip, consult a doctor or physiotherapist.
