Everyone should put in the effort of participating in physical activities to aid in the assistance of staying healthy and keeping in shape. By being physically active you are not only extending the length of your life but you are also increasing the quality of your life because of the outstanding health benefits that come with being physically active. It is recommended by most governments that everyone of all ages should remain active and should devote at least half an hour to being physically active, but making and staying consistent with a workout regime may be extremely tricky and boring. So most look to bicycling as it is very simple to engage in physical activity and it is also the most efficient mode of human locomotion way to get around town. Before we begin I’d like to give a shoutout to Synaptic Cycles situated in the Los Angeles area. When I went there for a little spring vacation I obviously couldn’t bring my bike. These guys rented me a great one, and I can only recommend them. Alright, let’s begin!
Better Cardio, Better Health
Cycling helps and strengthens the cardiovascular muscle. Cycling is associated with improved cardiovascular fitness, as the heart is working extremely hard to distribute blood to all of your major arteries to get to the working organs to efficiently supply blood and oxygen. By improving this major muscle you will not only decrease the risk in coronary heart disease but also improve the strength and health of your heart.
Cycling Is Meditative
Cycling is linked to improving mental health: While riding your bike you will be put into your own head and thoughts while also strolling around peacefully. This is almost like your own form of meditation while also being a stress reliever. Cycling on a bright sunny day with great weather is the most perfect time to contemplate and just re-grasp your life. While also finding yourself and compromising with your inner-self. (for you very spiritual people)
It Increases Longevity
Cycling increasing the length of your life. Bicycling is one of the greatest ways to increase your lifespan. By staying active your body stays young and healthy. Since you are working all of your major muscle and arteries this will improve the length of your lifespan while also shortening your fitness levels by 10 years! By this I mean you will remain younger by 10 years by staying fit and cycling regularly.
Burns Fat, Makes You Look Good
Cycling is good for your waistline: for those of you who are self conscious about your weight, it would be a good idea to look into cycling as one of your key forms of exercise. You can burn a ton of calories while biking, you can even tone it up a notch by going a little faster and going up on inclined hills that may be a little bit of a challenge. Cycling is also known to ramp up your body’s fat metabolism so you will be able to burn fat quick.
Makes You Jacked And Tan
Cycling is good for your muscles. While riding a bike you are not only training your muscles but you are also toning and building them all while you are just pedaling along town. You are training the muscles in the lower half of your body, which are your calves, thighs and buttocks. It also does a great job by working the abdomen.
Overall cycling is a great way to stay in shape and increase your overall health.
