Best Recumbent Bikes

Best recumbent bikes - top bestselling exercise bikes in USA

Recumbent exercise bikes have certain benefits that regular exercise bikes do not have. Due to the leaning back relaxed posture, the recumbent exercise bikes do not put any strain on the back or behind. In a regular exercise bike, there is much greater downward pressure while pedaling, due to the posture. In recumbent the pressure is there but it does not impact the body, and especially the back. If you use the recumbent bike regularly, you will get most of the benefits of regular exercise biking, but without the accompanying aches pains and strains.

The seat of the recumbent exercise bike is chair like, and gives excellent lumbar support. Overall using a recumbent bike is much less jarring to joints, especially in your knees, hips and ankles. When you lean back and sit comfortably, the pressure you exert is not straight downward but slightly forward.

In essence you do your exercise in much greater comfort and with much less strain and pressure on the body. This is one of the reasons why recumbent bikes are a great method of exercising for people who have injuries, are recovering or have back issues.

Even people with limited mobility and back pain can exercise on a recumbent bike, of course after consultation with qualified doctors and physicians.

Surprisingly top athletes and cyclists also use recumbent bikes as they prevent muscle soreness the next day. Thus, before a major event, and during breaks, they exercise on recumbent bikes to keep up the rhythm of exercise, yet stay fresh, rested and ready for the next day.

If you are thinking that just because a recumbent bike is equivalent to exercising in comfort, it will not deliver results, you are wrong. Regular use of recumbent bikes will result in weight loss and increase in muscle strength among other benefits. They are also great as a cardio workout.
