Summer is coming and when you go on vacation to the countryside by car, you will find more and more people cycling to exercise on the winding rural roads. Any type of exercise can be used for fitness, but negative effects may also occur due to incorrect techniques, as is the case with cycling. Here is some necessary information you need to know about cycling fitness.
There are several correct methods for cycling fitness:
Long-term slow riding: Heart rate generally does not exceed 65% of maximum heart rate and lasts for more than 20 minutes. This method burns more fat for the energy supply and is more suitable for obese people who want to lose weight.
Fast riding: It can make the heart rate reach more than 85% of the maximum heart rate. The body mainly supplies energy through anaerobic glycolysis of glycogen, which can improve aerobic threshold and enhance the ability of anaerobic exercise especially in thigh muscles. This means that the discomfort after intense exercise will be delayed, helping us to engage in higher-intensity exercise or to persist for longer during high-intensity exercise. In addition, fast riding also has exercise value for cardiorespiratory function.
Combination of fast and slow riding: in addition to aerobic capacity, anaerobic capacity, and cardiorespiratory function, this method also increases the fun of exercise. If scientific guidance can be obtained and a more reasonable combination of fast and slow riding can be adopted, better fitness results can be achieved.
Medium-speed riding: keeping the heart rate between 65% and 85% of the maximum heart rate is a good way to exercise cardiorespiratory function and aerobic capacity. It is best to alternate these methods during fitness, but emphasize one method while supplementing others to achieve better fitness results.
In addition, at the beginning of the workout, riders should not ride too fast, and the time generally ranges from 20 to 40 minutes. if feeling tired during the ride, slow down for 1-2 minutes to recover physical strength. After a period of time, it gradually increases the intensity and duration of the exercise.
There are many benefits to cycling, but beginner cyclists may feel that their endurance is not enough, and they may worry about their physical fitness when exercising. For such riders, why not try the Lvbu KD series of electric bike front wheel conversion kit? It can turn your bike into an electric bike. This electric bicycle kit can assist with cycling using electric power, making up for any lack of physical strength during riding. The Lvbu KD series diy electric bike kit is equipped with the Lvbu micro-power system, which has five intelligent assistance modes: exercise, commuting, leisure, manual, and climbing. The exercise mode simulates the three stages of fitness, from warm-up to sprinting to cooldown, providing different levels of assistance during different phases. The kit periodically adjusts the level of assistance to help the rider better control the pace of cycling and reduce knee load and muscle soreness.
The kit is equipped with a 250w high-speed brushless bicycle assist motor, which is powerful, compact, and runs smoothly. Even when the power is off, there is no magnetic resistance while cycling. Installation is simple, just replace the original bike wheel with the bike wheel motor, install the controller and battery pack, and you're good to go. Even riders with weak mechanical skills can quickly reform their bike into a hybrid-manual-electric driving system. They can use human power to drive during exercise by setting the assistance level to zero. When their physical power is exhausted, riders can choose to use the intelligent assistance mode or select an assistance level from 0-99 in manual mode to enjoy electric-assisted cycling and make up for any lack of stamina.
Additionally, the battery is an automotive-grade 18650 lithium-ion battery, with a universal and stylish design, and a hook-type design that allows for easy removal and carrying. The surface of the battery pack is coated with a waterproof layer, so water droplets automatically roll off to create a waterproof effect, making it safe to ride even on rainy days.
Cycling has numerous benefits. if you want to enjoy the beauty of nature while scientifically exercising during a spring outing, why not bring along the lvbu electric bike conversion kit with battery and explore the scenic views?
