Strategies for cycling exercise bike at different times of the day

Cycling at home has become a new attitude towards life, and the combination of music and cycling provides cyclists with a variety of choices. You can sweat and burn fat when you need to lose weight or relieve stress when you are physically and mentally tired.

The exercise intensity of the exercise bike is also determined according to the course arrangement, so the user group is relatively wide, and the elderly and children can use it. But we know that everyone's exercise habits are different, some people like to exercise in the morning, and some people are used to exercising in the evening. So will choose different riding periods to have any different effects?



Ride at Morning

Does it sound good to let the exercise bike wake you up from your drowsiness and start your day with a ride?

But in fact, when we get up in the morning, the body's functions have not fully returned to normal levels, the blood circulation is relatively slow, and it is in a fasting state. At this time, if you ride with high intensity, it is easy to cause symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, hypoglycemia, and hypoxia.

My suggestion is to do some "low-intensity" riding in the morning, keeping your heart rate at no more than 70% of your maximum heart rate.

In addition, there are two things to pay attention to in the morning exercise:

  • Do a good job of warming up: the temperature in the morning and the body temperature are both low, so you need to do enough warm-up exercises;
  • Don’t go on an empty stomach: It is not advisable to ride on an empty stomach. It is recommended to eat some sugar to cushion the stomach, which can be a banana, a piece of toast, a glass of honey water, etc. This can help you avoid other more nasty effects of low blood sugar, such as dizziness and dizziness.


Ride at noon

Some friends have to choose to ride at noon due to work reasons. What should I pay attention to when riding at noon?

After lunch at noon, it is recommended to rest for 30 minutes to 1 hour before doing some "low-intensity" riding. Also, the heart rate does not exceed 70% of the maximum heart rate. This will prevent gastrointestinal indigestion.

If you want to lose fat and do some moderate-to-high-intensity cycling, wait at least 1-2 hours after meals and exercise at noon. It is also necessary to adjust the intensity depending on whether the personal condition is not good and whether the indoor temperature is too high.


Ride in the evening or at night

Evening (17:00 to 19:00) is the golden time for riding. At this time, the physical fitness and state will be better than that in the morning and noon, because the body temperature is higher at this time, and the muscle elasticity is better, which is most suitable for "high-intensity" riding. line (heart rate zone is 80% to 95% of maximum heart rate). If you want to sweat and burn fat, this time is the most suitable.

If you are exercising at night (20:00-22:00), you can do some "moderate-intensity" cycling (heart rate between 70% and 80% of your maximum heart rate). At this time, it is close to sleep time, so it is necessary to avoid excessive exercise intensity and excessive exercise time. Excessive exercise will put the body in a state of excitement and affect the quality of sleep.

Similarly, we must not forget that if you ride before dinner, you need to replenish the appropriate amount of food in advance. If you are riding after dinner, wait until the digestion is complete.
