“When you pick up your bike to go for a short ride around the neighborhood, it may not be just a fun and passing time activity but also you enjoy its many benefits,” says Dr. Tony Gasana. But what are the benefits he’s talking about?
Cycling helps the joints remain healthy and efficient and because your entire body weight isnt on your back, it’s suitable for those suffering from spinal disorders.
Cycling is a great cardiovascular exercise. The heart, which is a muscle, becomes stronger and more resistant to fatigue and high blood pressure is reduced as a result.
Cycling increases the respiratory capacity, improving the functionality of lungs and it’s an exercise recommended for people suffering from asthma or chronic bronchitis. The improvement in lung capacity is particularly perceptible in smokers.
If you want to lose weight, cycling is for you. It’s a fun, relaxing way to lose excess calories.
