Riding a bike can really lose weight, how long?


The perfect riding time is 40-60 minutes. Less than 40 minutes, the effect of burning fat will not be guaranteed, while more than one hours' riding will cause physical harm. Riding consumes 480 calories per hour, which is similar to that by running with the same intensity but has less impact on both feet.

Riding for body fitness:

1、Riding fast

Riding fastly can make the heart rate reach more than 85% of the maximum heart rate. At this time, the body mainly provides energy through glycogen anaerobic fermentation, which can improve the anaerobic exercise ability of the whole body, especially the thigh muscles, and help to raise the anaerobic threshold. That is to say, physical discomfort after vigorous exercise will be delayed, which will help us to engage in more intensive exercise, or stick to it for longer. In addition, fast riding is also of great exercise value for the cardiopulmonary function.

2、Long time's slow riding

Heart rate generally does not exceed 65% of the maximum heart rate. For more than 20 minutes will burn more fat to provide energy. Therefore, it is more suitable for obese people to reduce fat.

3、fast-slow combination

This way of riding can not only take into account aerobic capacity, anaerobic capacity, cardiopulmonary function, but also increase the fun of sports. If we can get scientific guidance and adopt a more reasonable combination of fast and slow exercise, we will achieve better fitness results.

4、Medium speed cycling

That is to say, to control the heart rate at 65%-85% of the maximumheart rate. It is the best way to exercise cardiopulmonary function and aerobic exercise ability of the body.
