FAQ

There are no right and wrong answers to that question. It all depends on what you want to get out of your workouts. If you’re new to cycling or very out of condition, then it’s probably best to start very gently and cycle for only ten minutes the first time.

If, on the other hand, you’re pretty fit and want to get even fitter, we recommend that you aim to cycle for at least thirty minutes, including warming up.

  1. You should start by being transparent about what goals you have for your workout. Do you feel like cycling at the same load and speed during the whole session? Or do you want to do intervals that mean you increase and decrease the speed and load several times during your session? Both options are suitable when riding an exercise bike.
  2. Once you’ve decided what type of session you want, you need to decide how long you want to cycle.
  3. Then it's time to select the desired training programme on your bike, and also enter how long you want the session to be. Often there are several different pre-programmed options, which give some variation to your workouts.

Cycling mainly builds the muscles in the lower body. This includes:

  1. The gluteal muscles, namely, the Gluteus Maximus, Gluteus Medius and Gluteus Minimus.
  2. The hamstring on the back of the leg, which consists of the Biceps Femoris, Semitendinosus and Semimembranosus.
  3. The large quadriceps muscle on the front of the thigh, which is a collection of four muscles (the Vastus Lateralis, Rectus Femoris, Vastus Medialis and Vastus Intermedialis).
  4. The groin (adductor)
  5. The calves (Gastrocnemius and Soleus) are also involved during cycling. The calves play more of a supporting role, as the force is moved from the quadriceps to the feet.
