Recumbent bikes

Recumbent bikes are a popular choice for a workout that you can perform while sitting. They are also ideal for rehabilitation. The comfortable chair and back rest relieves your upper body, enabling you to focus on training the lower body.

What are the advantages of a recumbent bike?

'Recumbent' means 'lying back' or 'sitting back' and that's exactly what you do on a recumbent bike. You relieve the upper body by sitting during a workout. A workout on a recumbent bike strengthens the muscles, especially the ones in the lower body. The great thing is that it has a positive influence on the whole body. While cycling, your heart has to work harder to pump blood through the body, leading to increased blood pumping in fewer beats per minute. This has a beneficial effect on your blood pressure, stamina and overall fitness.

Because of the position you sit in, you can read a book, work on a tablet or even watch television while training. This distraction often makes you train longer on the bike than when you are constantly focusing on the workout.

Is a recumbent bike good for rehabilitation?

Due to the support that a recumbent bike gives, this is a device that is especially suitable for rehabilitation and people with back problems. Also, training with a bike has less impact on the joints than sports such as running. This is due to the support that the body has. Finally, you can train at any level and slowly build up your pace and intensity.
