Welcome to WhatExerciseBike 2020 Guide for Best Exercise Bikes
Due to our fast pace lifestyle and ever-growing responsibilities, it’s no wonder that lots of us doesn’t even consider exercising. Then there is a valid point of making time to go to local gym which, I can say from my personnel experience, is not easy. And once we get to the point where we get a wake up call from someone else, we start worrying what should i do to get in shape. And then what we do? We take any fad diet from the market, and start following it with the hope that it will be just enough to get back in that awesome shape. But if things are that simple, we would have only 1 diet plan in the market instead of thousands.
The truth is there is no alternative to exercise when it comes to getting in shape. Even a simple running routine will do lot more than just skipping some food. But due to our limited resources, like lack of running tracks, not everyone is able to enjoy the benefits of running. And then there are days when you just do not want to do much or leave the comfort of your home. At times like these, one would rather make use of a machine that would have you work out on all your core muscles and burn a lot of calories in the process too! Well, thanks to indoor exercise bikes, we now really don’t need a ground or a cycling track for our exercise routine. With exercise bikes, you can do it in comfort of your home. They don’t take much space, like folding exercise bikes, and spending just 15 – 20 min with them brings a really visible difference in your shape within a month.
The stationary exercise bikes help you get the abs and glutes you have always wanted while burning your fat too in the process. If you know how to use them in the right way and take proper care with your posture then there is no way that indoor exercise machine will turn out to be a game changer for you.
When using the exercise bikes and any other kind of gym equipment, the posture plays a crucial role in the overall results. If you want to own the best exercise bike, you must know how to use it properly too to avail all the benefits that have been discussed previously. We have listed below some of the things that you must keep in mind when buying yourself the best exercise bikes.
- Saddle and its fixation
This is the seat you will be sitting on and when in full flow you need to ensure that it is comfortable and properly fixed. When you choose the exercise bike, the saddle must be chosen very wisely. It should complement your body structure and should be something you are comfortable in. Moreover, you must get it fixed by a professional so that its position is not such that would put undue pressure on your knees and hurt your joints while you are exercising. As a general rule, the knees should be only slightly bent when you are sitting on the exercise bike.
- Position of the handlebars
If you talk to the professionals, many of them would recommend that you get an exercise bike with handlebars. When adjusting the handlebars you must keep in mind that its height is matched to your body’s. Have a professional adjust it to a level which is slightly higher than that of your seat. Apart from providing support to the elderly, it is also useful for the young. With the handlebars in position, you can now use your upper body in the exercise too. This is not possible with the mini exercise bikes as they are designed only to bring the lower body in motion.
- Display screen
Although its not a compulsory feature, however most of the latest exercise bikes models offers a display screen & connectivity to your mobile phone. Having a display screen with your bike will not only help you know your speed but it also displays heartbeat and other statistics all through the workout which you may also store in your mobile phone. All the best exercise bikes have it as it makes the whole workout experience a lot more fun and interactive.
- Weight range
No matter how much you weigh, you should always buy the bikes that would cater to a wide range of weights, although they might be a bit pricey. But this little investment would mean that the equipment can be of use to everyone in your family. Usually the average weight capacityu for exercise bikes is anywhere between 250 – 350 pounds with the max at 500 pounds.
