Understanding how to use the exercise bike will make your exercise safer and more efficient! Next, share with you the notes on riding an exercise bike:

Reasonable seat adjustment

Adjust the pedal cover

Correct riding skills

Don't bend over

1. Reasonable seat adjustment

When the footrest is in the lowest position, your legs should be almost straight, but they shouldn’t be fully straightened. You shouldn’t need to effortlessly tilt your legs or twist your hips to get to the pedals.

When the pedals are at the highest point, there should be no pressure on the knees.

2. Adjust the pedal cover

Comfort is appropriate, not too tight, so as to prevent the blood circulation of the foot from being blocked: If there is a pedal on the pedal of the exercise bike, it will be more comfortable and more efficient than riding without a cover.

3. Correct riding skills

Do not use your foot only when driving. Otherwise, your feet and legs will hurt.

The correct cycling technique is: use the ankle to make a full circle and force evenly

Most people are used to riding ankles when riding a bike. In fact, pressing down on the ankle will weaken the strength of the leg, calf, and thigh muscles. The force transmitted during cycling will be reduced, and the thighs will be particularly prone to fatigue. Therefore, the force should be uniform.

4. Do not bend over

Rubbing your back can cause back and neck pain.

Don't let the upper body participate excessively. Instead, you should raise your chest, shoulders backwards, droop naturally, and line up with your shoulders and abdomen at the same time.

If you're rocking to the side, gnashing your teeth, or you're having to grab a bit of force, you should reduce your exercise intensity.
