An Overview of Exercise Bike

What is Exercise Bike?
The exercise bike was first created by the American personal trainer and extreme athlete JOHNNYG in the 1980s. It is a unique and vibrant stationary exercise bicycle that combines music and visual effects.

Stationary Exercise Bike


After overcoming all the shortcomings of outdoor driving, due to technical improvements, exercise bike workout is not only easy to learn, but also an aerobic exercise that can exercise the whole body.

The structure of a exercise bike is basically similar to an ordinary bike. It includes handlebars, seat, pedals and wheels, and the body is firmly connected as a whole. Different from ordinary bicycles, its structure can be adjusted a lot to make the rider feel more comfortable. Before getting on the bike, the rider must first determine the height of the seat. Under normal circumstances, this height is based on the height when you stand on the ground, raise your thighs, and are level with the ground. In this way, when riding, the angle between the thigh and the calf will not be too small, thereby reducing the burden on the knee and avoiding its damage. Then, the rider needs to determine the position of the handlebar based on the position of the seat. It is required to keep your hands at the front of the handlebars, maintain your elbows resting on the handlebars, make your body compact and stretch your arms forward without feeling too much effort. The height of the handlebar can also be raised and lowered according to the specific figure of the rider.

Structure of the Exercise Bike

  • The front of the indoor exercise bike: It is composed of a handle and a bottle case. The design of the bottle cage is to consider the needs of cyclists who need to replenish water at any time after long-term fitness exercises.
  • Mudguard: There is a mudguard between the bike body and the brake system. The function of this mudguard is similar to that of an ordinary bicycle, which protects the flywheel from sweat and rust.
  • Flywheel: The main function of the flywheel is to counterweight, that is, increase the load of exercise to increase the intensity of training.
  • Electronic brake system: Many stationary bikes are equipped with an electronic brake system, which also allows many stationary bikes riders to better control and grasp the rhythm when they feel tired.
  • Cranks and pedals: The cranks and pedals are also similar in structure to ordinary bicycles. They act as a driving bridge. Most of the effects of stationary exercise bikes are reflected through this.
  • Seat: The seat height of the indoor bike is very convenient to adjust. This is to allow people of different heights to adapt to the same bicycle. It is a very user-friendly design.
  • Body fixed frame: an integral frame support structure of an exercise bike. Basically, the fixed frame of all exercise bikes is made of metal, which is the main reason why exercise bikes can support people who are overweight.
Advantages of the Exercise Bike
    1. Reliable and solid components: Due to the use of sturdy, high-quality accessories and materials, the stationary bicycle can withstand high-strength and frequent use. The rust-prone part of the bicycle is made of stainless steel, and the flywheel is treated with a chromium alloy coating. The electrostatic spraying technology used in the main frame can prevent rust to the greatest extent.
    2. Convenient maintenance: the exercise bike not only has beautiful appearance but also convenient maintenance.
    3. Simple operation: The simple bolt-type adjustment system of the stationary exercise bike can provide stability and safety; the non-slip multi-function handle can be adjusted with the adjustment button and the adjustment safety system without disassembly; the two bottle cages at different positions are easy to use.
    4. Cushions designed according to human environmental engineering can provide maximum comfort: The unisex cushion is suitable for both beginners and experienced users. Professional design can correct sitting posture and provide maximum comfort.
    5. Two-way pedals: Two-way selectable pedals and easily adjustable pedal straps can meet the needs of different users. Both special shoes for stationary bikes and ordinary sports shoes are suitable.
    6. Provide smooth and accurate resistance: The latest technologies and materials in the automotive industry are applied to resistance control, flywheels and Poly V belts, thereby providing users with a stable, smooth comfort and a continuous "real" cycling experience.

Structure of The Exercise Bike

The Function of the Exercise Bike
Although similar to ordinary bicycles, exercise bicycles have very different functions. Exercise bikes do not have some of the disadvantages of cycling, such as safety and waist pain. All these shortcomings have been improved on indoor exercise bikes. The indoor bike has been scientifically designed by experiment and adopted the method of artificial mechanics engineering to select suitable for the requirements of the human body. It does not strain the waist, but also makes the fitness to achieve the maximum effect. There are two fixed shoe covers on each pedal to prevent bodybuilders from throwing their feet out during exercise. It upholds the concept of safe design. Some exercise bikes have a stretching function, which is more suitable for all kinds of people who are tall, short, fat and thin. According to the amount of exercise you endure, the exercise bike workout can be divided into: intensity exercise and intensity exercise. Riders can choose the exercise intensity that suits them according to the resistance of the bicycle. You can also choose your own suitable exercise method: there are two methods of sitting position and standing position. You have to choose the method that suits you. Both methods can effectively exercise your own leg muscles, as well as leg strength and endurance, and are also good for promoting bone growth. If you want to increase the muscles of your legs, it is recommended to take strength exercises. If you want to lose weight and burn fat, it is recommended to choose intensity exercise. No matter which one you choose, it is recommended that you must continue to exercise for a long time, not imagine it out of thin air. It still depends on the individual efforts and no one can help you exercise. What others tell you is a shortcut to success, but the road is still to go by yourself. You should try to ride the exercise bike 2 to 3 times a week, and each ride needs to be kept for about half an hour to forty-five minutes. In addition, you have to eat some muscle-increasing powder. The effect will be more obvious. In short, if you want to build muscle, indoor exercise bikes workout is a good program. It is not as boring as other training programs. If several people exercise together, it will make the exercise more interesting.

Fat Reduce Principle
Like all other aerobic exercises, fitness exercise bikes can also achieve the goal of reducing fat while consuming energy after fully activating the motor cells of the human body. According to the coach, indoor exercise bike is one of the most exercised equipment in the gym, which requires very high physical fitness. Under normal circumstances, a class of exercise can consume about 500 calories, and also expel a lot of sweat. The water loss of body is very fast, so it is necessary to replenish water in time. However, a large amount of water loss does not mean that it relies on "reducing water" to lose weight. If you wear a heart rate monitor during exercise, you will clearly see that you are completely consuming fat from which moment. During the exercise centered on the legs, the muscles of the buttocks, waist, back, and arms can be fully exercised. At the same time, it can also enhance your heart and lung function.

The exercise bikes that originated in the United States are tainted with a strong American flavor. The sport is energetic and passionate, so it is popular among people aged 25 to 35. However, there is no age limit for this sport, because it is designed scientifically to ensure the safety of participants. Moreover, the intensity of exercise is completely controllable, so it is suitable for all people with athletic ability. However, it is not recommended for people with knee injuries to participate in this exercise, because the knee joints are very frictional during the entire riding process. Coupled with high-intensity pressure, it is easy to form potential injuries. These injuries will slowly manifest in the future exercise process. Patients with heart disease and high blood pressure are also advised not to participate in order to avoid danger during high-intensity training.
