- Now add your hand up and down with jumping.
- Put down your head and up after a few seconds.
- Do this kind of normal exercise for 10 minutes as warm up.
Follow the steps for an effective workout:
I have experienced the stationary bike exercise many times. Here I have enclosed a deep exercise work out method so that you could have a better beginning. Follow the instruction carefully and do it regularly. Don’t be over smart that you are doing with your own made routing. It may cause harm.
Step 1: At first, sit on your bike seat and measure your heels that they are in the right condition. it means when the pedal is down, your heels and legs must be straight. If they are looking straight, you are all set to begin the exercise. If now, adjust it as I said. Remember that you are in a familiar condition in the first view. You can backward and forward your seat as your size.
Step 2: Now try to pedal slowly to check that you are in the right position. You have to be sure that the bike is comfortable for you. Do not try to spin as you got the bike.
Step 3: Do not fix the handle or other bars too close to you. It could cause a different kind of pains in your whole body. Keep standard distance from seat to handle. It is obvious that they all are in a comfortable mood.
Step 4: Now sit on your seat and put your leg on the pedals. Keep your handlebar gently and make straight your back with your seat. Make sure that your heap, knees, and feet are in the same line. Now spin slowly for 10 minutes as a little warm up. Do not try to spin fast at the very beginning.
Step 5: Keep your heart rate in the normal scale when you are spinning the bike. You can see your heart rate on the bike monitor. To keep a normal heart rate, you can fix the resistance into normal rpm. You can get the resistance guide with the bike.
Step 6: Now make a routine for everyday exercise. You have spin 20 minutes every day in a week. If you do less then it will not work for any change. On the other hand, do not keep much longer in a day. It could be a danger to your health. You can keep these 20 minutes dividedly. Suppose, you can spin for 10 minutes in the morning and 10 minutes after coming from the office. Just make the routine friendly with your timing and health condition.
Must add extra 5 minutes in the beginning for warm up.
Step 7: Follow the professional trainer who trains online on how to spin bike. You can find many videos of workout with the exact method on Youtube. You suggest you spin 20 minutes in a day comfortably. In the last 10 minutes spin faster as you can for 5 minutes and again slow down the speed for 5 minutes. Like that way increase the RPM slowly day by day. You change the RPM rate 2 or 3 days after.
Do not make these mistakes:
- Do not grip the handlebar tightly. It could cause hand muscle pain in a single day. Just grip gently as you can free from the bike. By gripping the handlebar tightly, you are spending another energy that you should waste.
- Do not keep your seat too high or too low from your heel. Always you need to remember that, your heels are standing on the paddles with a suitable distance from the seat.
- Are you feeling that you are not breathing properly? If so then stop spinning and try to breathe normally. You must observe it you are breathing normally.
