The time after Christmas, this is the high season for diets: As in every year comes the eternal good intent: Finally permanently lose weight! But the truth is: The unpleasant pounds, the bacon rolls on the stomach and the ugly upholstery on the buttocks and thighs have not come overnight. Unfortunately they will not disappear overnight. Unless you are put to the skin with an effective concept.
Weight loss with regular endurance training
A safe and extremely efficient way to permanently lose weight is indoor cycling. Why? The body burns fat most effectively when exercising moderate but regular endurance training (aerobic exercise). Only a few sports are suitable for aerobic endurance training and thus for effective and safe fat loss. Targeted fat loss sports should be able to stretch large parts of the muscles, be rhythmic, and moderate over a longer period of time with less intensity.
Bike path in the direction of the slender line
Indoor cycling, like jogging, walking or Nordic walking, takes up the entire lower body, but protects the joints because most of the body weight rests on the saddle. A few years ago, the indoor cycling wave from the USA spilled over to us and has now become an insider tip for targeted fat burning.
"Properly-designed indoor cycling is a special training on a fixed bike that combines the benefits of cycling with independence of time of day, weather and outside temperature, " explains fitness and personal trainer Alexander Natter.
For women, the training on the rigid bike has a very special, positive side effect: They specifically train the muscles on the problem areas, butt, thighs and calves, resulting in beautiful, aesthetically well-formed legs.
How many calories are burned during indoor cycling?
The aim of indoor cycling, according to the Fit Appeal concept by Alexander Natter, is to keep the highest possible pedaling frequency for a longer period of time. An optimal training session lasts between 30 and 60 minutes, advanced students can even train for up to 90 minutes or even longer. During the whole time is pedaling incessantly, which on the one hand stimulates fat burning and improves the condition. One hour of indoor cycling consumes about 450 calories.
Different sitting postures or handlebar grips strengthen not only the leg but also the upper body muscles.
Indoor cycling: suitable for everyone
The most stepless adjustment of the pedaling resistance gives the feeling of going uphill or downhill, which is particularly beneficial for overweight people, people with poor physical condition or for the elderly. If the training is too hard, it simply reduces the resistance and drives at its individual level. No one is hanged or has to surrender before a small climb. So that driving on the rigid bike is not too one-sided, Alexander Natter recommends a varied training program.
The excuse "No time for training" does not count!
Indoor cycling is offered in almost every fitness center! If you are busy and do not have much time or prefer to work at home, you should buy a good indoor bike, a cycle trainer or a bicycle ergometer. So you can train regardless of the time of day or the opening hours of the studios. For example, in the morning before or in the evening after work.
This unique investment in health and fitness is definitely worth it, because high-quality exercise equipment has a lifetime of many years. So that at home no boredom arises during training, it is recommended to complete the training in front of the TV or in loud music and with varied programs.
