Bike Shop Louisville: How to lose weight cycling

At our bike shop near Louisville, we meet many people who want to lose weight cycling. Casual cycling does not automatically result in weight loss. Those who are able to lose weight cycling are those who set out to do so through a combination of dietary changes and a cycling plan that has the rigor to get results. Here are a few secrets that help maximize the exercise benefits of riding: A bike that is sized to fit will help your body burn calories. When fit is not good, sometimes riders are not getting the full calorie-burning benefit from riding as they are slumped in their seat. Beginning with a stretch and warm-up routine every time protects bodies from injury and helps muscles prepare to work efficiently. Building the intensity level of exercise gradually helps people be safe and successful. Beginning with a low-intensity ride that is manageable, and focusing on developing the pattern of cycling every day is an effective approach. Successful cycling fitness routines alternate short periods of rigorous exercise with rest have been shown to be the most effective. This method allows you to use your energy more efficiently than a continuous hard push where you actually lose strength over time. In order to lose weight, you will need to burn more calories than you consume, so your routine is only one piece of what’s needed to lose weight cycling.
