Traveling around the world, I noticed that the bikes is became more common as a form of recreation or as a main means of transport. It does not matter who is the layer of the population concerned, starting from students to the director, the case is the former mayor of London, their daily tasks and distance perform by cycling. It seems to me that people are slowly realizing the benefits of this means of transport: no crowds, park where ever you want, preferably assemble your bike and take in hand, a great form of recreation and most importantly saving. In this article we will deal with cycling as a form of recreation, lifestyle and benefits to the human body.
I’m glad to see that people are more and more riding bicycles, especially in larger cities. An excellent example is Switzerland, where despite the hilly and mountainous parts, each part of the country is crisscrossed by cycling paths, so if you have the stamina and time you do not need a car. Although it all depends on the weather conditions, but today under the onslaught of industrialization and production of new materials and types of clothing biking is available and possible everywhere. Thinner tires wider tires, a smaller or larger frame, larger or smaller transfer, material preparation, now it’s all available to make it easier to overcome the field in which you are driving. For those with a little poorer fitness level or high age there is the help of electric motors and easier driving and mastering the climb.
As a form of recreation cycling firstly presents an enjoyment of nature and terms, as well as activity in the fresh air, which is very important for all body functions. Strengthening the lower extremities, especially the quadriceps and calf, shaping muscle, fat loss, weight loss, accelerate metabolism, improve endurance and stamina, improved cardiovascular and respiratory organs, improve blood circulation, reduce mental stress, by time make reduction in heart rate at rest – the heart works slower, more efficient and more productive, the heart muscle makes stronger …all of this is advantages for this type of activity. With bike distance that can pass are truly impressive.
Depending on your condition and fitness level, it is best to ride a bike every day for one to two hours. In such a long process after a certain time (after 20 minutes of activity) there will be degradation of fats. With a lower pulse, 130 beats per minute, drive will be longer and degradation of fat better. If is pulse higher around 160 beats per minute the speed is higher, the ability to quickly get tired is more possible, shorter time for degradation of fats, reduce your speed and pulse will go down. Speed that is recommended is about 20 km / h.
Get a reliable bike, price is irrelevant because it is all in the legs and endurance, in the case of a long drive need to get the bike windscreens, because after the first hour you will feel the pain of sitting, get a comfortable seat, sunglasses for insects, a bottle of water with you always, and of course music that will break the monotony of pedaling. And a very important thing in society is riding a bike is always interesting, because cycling is a collective sport!
Depending on the kind of goal we want to achieve, whether it is to lose fat and weight or increase muscle mass, increase endurance and stamina, strengthening certain muscle groups, progress, and improvement of some motor skills (flexibility, endurance, speed, …), is to lightweight recreational training or cardio purely for pleasure, we have various types of training, whether it be on the type of equipment, intensity or duration of the training. We’ll have to deal with this issue in the text, in a professional way without advertising brands and names of training.
Today we have a variety of different training titles. New names and brands for same kind of workout is very confusing. Essentially all boils down to the same, one type of training can be called on the 5 different modes. It is simply a branding and serious marketing in order to sell something and been on the agenda. I understand that today’s all is marketing and profit. But today we will call the facts with proper name, it is better.
The first very important thing is are you amateur, have you ever something seriously trained or what is your fitness level, and what you want to achieve. To say that, today’s training methods look like similar like gladiators is preparing for battle. It is OK, if you make money from wholesale as MMA fighters and Cross Fit athletes and you have sponsors and all the other things, then it makes sense. But if you are a recreational, difficult and strenuous training can later lead to Overtraining (OVERTRAINING OR PROGRESS ), or can cause serious injury. In the book SCIENCE OF FORCE shows clearly, strength and endurance should not train together, it said top experts and doctors, maybe it sound boring, but it makes sense.
The main thing for fitness and endurance is cardio training in combination with interval training, the muscle hypertrophy and increasing muscle mass is weights (split training) with sufficient intake of protein (up to 2 g of protein per kilogram of weight, per day), functional and circuit training to increase endurance and downloading fat and kilograms with an adequate relationship and entered calories spent days (you will not lose weight if you spend 500 calories per workout, so you come home and enter 1000 kcal), box combined with weights and strength training exercises is excellent for defining muscle with a mandatory removal of fat through diet , longer cardio training with uniform and moderate cardiac frequency is ideal for degradation of fat, short interval sprints in swimming, running, rowing – consumption of carbohydrates, high-frequency heart, rapid fatigue and short duration of activity – power, speed and explosiveness.
Call your training however you want or as it is more popularly known as May, but the basic thing is to break down what you want from a workout. Ask professional staff, find out an inform on the right places. Monitoring online, you tube and group training for motivation can have a counter effect, you think you’re doing well and properly and you can endure the intensity, and perhaps is the opposite. Listen your body, body knows what is the best for you.
