5 tips to use a stationary bike without harming our health

It’s a good idea to ride a bicycle for your health. It burns calories, tones your muscles, and is one of the easiest ways to exercise.

But riding a bike can also get you in trouble if you don’t know what you’re doing. That’s why I’ve written this book: to help you learn how to ride safely… and… to have fun while you’re doing it! In this chapter, we’re going to talk about: Tires:


The muscles in your legs have to be strong. It is one of the best ways to prevent coronary problems and many other things. It’s important to be kind to the environment.

I can’t walk,” he said, “it hurts too much.” What he meant was his leg muscles were getting so strong he couldn’t tolerate the exercise. But what he didn’t know was his leg muscles were getting so strong he could no longer tolerate not exercising them!

There are times when I can’t go outside, either due to bad weather or lack of time. This is how it occurred to me to get a stationary bike with which I exercise, not every day that I wanted, but every time I can I start pedaling.

When I consulted with a gym teacher friend, she gave me guidance on how to use the exercise bike and achieve the expected benefits.

How to use it :

-The most important thing to take into account is the number of sessions per week that we dedicate, the duration of each of them and the intensity of the exercise.

-To obtain good results you should pedal at least 2 or 3 times a week. It is convenient to have a day of rest between one class and another. At the beginning, classes should last approximately 20 to 25 minutes and then extend it to 30 or 45 minutes.

-Before starting to use it, you should make sure that it adapts to your physical characteristics. The height of the seat and its distance from the handlebars must be taken into account.

-If a person stands next to the bicycle, the seat must reach their hips. The best thing is that our legs do not remain extended but have a slight flexion.

-Between the front of the seat and the handlebar there should be the same distance as between the elbow and the index finger of any person.

-It is important to review these aspects since pedaling in a seat that is too low, high, ahead or behind can hurt the knees or back. That is why if the bike is used by more than one person it is important that before getting on you look at the details that I name you in the previous points.

I particularly love the stationary bike! Although it is not compared to walking outdoors, I enjoy it a lot: I play good music or I take advantage of the half hour in which my favorite series is shown and I sit down to pedal. So don’t wait any longer, take advantage of the benefits of cycling and then tell us the results.
