It needs less space than a recumbent bicycle and simulates the movement of a street bike. They emphasize the use of quadriceps (superior frontal muscle of the leg). Recumbents spinning: the user’s position is more horizontal, with the legs almost parallel to the ground and back secured by the support of the saddle. It is lighter for the lumbar area and exercises above all the area of the biceps femoris and the buttocks rather than a standard bicycle. Resistance: First: the majority of initiation models use a system of friction resistance as a brake drum or tape. They are very simple and have limited operating programs. Second: They are also the aerodynamic resistance, using a device of blade; greater pedaling = greater strength and greater difficulty. They tend to be more reliable and long-lived, because not to be friction and move the air with its internal system there is less wear.
Third: electro magnetic resistance, giving an effect smoother and more quiet. Its price is usually higher, and they include default programs and interactive heart rate monitor. Materials: there are different types of materials. You should take into account while more solid is, more will last. And, even more, if the person that you will use of very high or robust complexion.
Good optional (a little more expensive bikes): heart rate Monitor: which detects your pulse. They may be on the handlebar, and with simple contact show you rate your heart beats. Remember that, for most people, the most effective pace of training is between 70-80% of maximum rate. Depending on the models, now with boards spinning bikes can find electronic high-efficiency when it comes to give you useful data for your training. You can also find models with rear wheels for easy movement. Original author and source of the article.
