Cycling - Indoor, Stationary Description
Riding a stationary bicycle is one of the most popular cardiovascular conditioning methods in use today. Its convenience is one of the main reasons for its popularity; you don't need to worry about poor weather conditions or road hazards. Some cycles have electronic programs that simulate the type, length and difficulty of the ride you desire while displaying the number of calories burned. These programs allow cycling to have a wide range of adaptability to an individual's specific training needs. Cycling is a popular activity for those wishing to lose body fat due to its rhythmic use of major body parts and adaptability to longer duration, lower intensity sessions.
