Which one consumes more calories? Walking, running or cycling?
Bicycling is a systemic aerobic activity, which can effectively exercise brain, heart, and other human organs. The main reason is that many of its advantages are unmatched by other sports. So there are more and more people who have cycling.
Here are some advantages of cycling:
It also takes an hour. The distance traveled by bicycle is 5 times that of walking and 2 to 3 times that of jogging. In addition, as long as the weather is fine, we can decide the destination of riding according to our mood, unlike other sports such as swimming, basketball, etc., it will be limited by the venue and time. So, cycling is a fairly free sport.
Cycling needs a large amount of exercise:
Most of human muscles are concentrated on the legs, and cycling is to make the legs move continuously. In addition, we will use the hands, wrists, and back muscles when cycling, which is already equivalent to systemic exercise that can increase calorie expenditure. For example, in the Tour de France, the world's most famous cycling event, an average player consumes 5000 ~ 8000kcal (kcal) of calories every day.
Activate the movement of the brain, aerobic exercise with excellent effect:
When riding a bicycle on a general road, we should also pay attention to other road signs and observe the status of surrounding motor vehicles and pedestrians. Our eyes must be sharp enough to notice the dangerous causes of empty bottles and potholes in front of the road. In short, when riding a bike, you need to see the six roads and listen to all directions. You can instantly identify the various information received by the eyes, ears and nose and act accordingly. Therefore, cycling is also a sport that can activate the brain and make people smarter.
Aerobic exercise can take in enough oxygen, which is an effective exercise for burning fat. Our body is made up of more than 200 bones. The muscles that cover the bones are skeletal muscles. It is composed of aerobic muscles called slow muscle fibers and anaerobic muscles called fast muscle fibers. Among them, the main caloric source of aerobic muscle is sugar and fat, and the caloric source of anaerobic muscle is sugar. The amount of glycogen stored in muscles is limited. When intense exercise is performed, all glycogen is consumed. In this way, the aerobic muscles will continue to consume the accumulated fat in order to continue to exercise. However, we can only use aerobic exercise to burn body fat if we continue to exercise for more than 20 minutes.
Advantages of aerobic exercise:
The standard of general exercise intensity is how many times the heart sends out blood within 1 minute, that is, the number of heartbeats. In terms of maintaining the number of heartbeats that meet the standards of aerobic exercise, cycling is a very effective method. When maintaining a certain level of exercise intensity, the muscles of the human body will generate heat energy, which will increase the body temperature. At this time, the body will automatically perspire to lower body temperature. The main component of sweat is water. For every person who loses 1L of water with a weight of 60kg, it will lower the body temperature by 12 ℃. Of course, sweating is not the only way to lower body temperature, and the water and heat expelled by people during breathing cannot be underestimated.
The speed of cycling is relatively fast, and cyclists are often blown by oncoming winds, so the sweat is easily evaporated. Therefore, although we may cause a sharp rise in body temperature when cycling, the evaporation of sweat can ensure that the human body maintains comfortable body temperature, and the advantages of aerobic exercise are reflected here.
Of course, if you take a long bike ride, your body will be very tired. But if you suddenly stop to rest, your heartbeat will suddenly slow down and cause harm to it. At this time, if you can ride an electric bicycle and use the electric power assist mode, then the body can easily ride without suddenly stopping to rest, thereby slowly reducing the amount of exercise and allowing the body to adapt slowly. Electric bicycles can not only help people to ride easily, but also bring convenience to people's lives. So why not choose an electric bike?
