Benefits of Pedal Bike
Many of the better mini pedal cycles will offer a decent aerobic exercise session. It can’t compare with 30 minutes in spin class but it will get your heart rate up. When your heart is pumping and your legs are pumping, your blood is pumping fresh oxygen through your body
Pedalling at a comfortable resistance for a few minutes means you are burning calories too. If you had one of these at home and pedalled for 30 minutes while watching your favourite show, you probably wouldn’t even notice you were exercising. PLUS you could burn 300 calories that you wouldn’t have otherwise.
Once your body is burning calories and getting all that O2 – your metabolism is going to climb. This means that you will start to burn off calories even while you aren’t exercising. You could even be burning more calories in your sleep than before you got your pedal exerciser.
Reduce the Risk of Arthritis
Low impact exercises like cycling can help to keep joints more fluid and healthy. Flexibility improves as well as a reduction in joint pain.
Exercise causes the brain to emits happy feel good chemicals. Working makes your brain produce even more powerful chemicals. This is one reason (in theory) why a person will skip a workout but will volunteer to work overtime.
Increase Work Performance
Alertness increases which increases productivity and performance. When you pedal on your under desk cycle at work you will be giving yourself more oxygen.
This helps to keep the mind alert and the body awake.
Sleep Better, Sounder, Longer
Some studies now show that the improvement to sleep may not be immediate when a person adds more exercise to their day. However after a couple of months many do start to gain a marked improvement in their ability to fall asleep, and remain asleep. If you are among the number that won’t benefit right away in your sleeping, you still be able to enjoy all the other benefits from your pedal exerciser.
Lower Blood Pressure
When you work your cardiovascular system you are also working your heart muscle. Like any muscle when exercised it gets stronger. That means that it can now pump more blood with less effort reducing the pressure on the arteries. This is what results in lowered blood pressure.
Increase Strength and Muscle Tone
Most machines can be used for both upper and lower body strength cycling exercises. As well, most of them will pedal forward and backwards so you can tone and strengthen by hitting your muscles in different ways.
For example, when you pedal forward with your legs you work your muscles differently than when you pedal backwards. As well, if you use the foot straps to their advantage you can get a push/pull action going with your legs.
Using your upper body can develop tone and strength in your shoulders, upper arms, forearms, hands, back, and chest.
