What You Can Get on Bicycling?

Many people do not know what are the good effects of bicycling in our body. Though you can find many positive ones, but also it has negative effects which we are rarely aware. Still many prefer it as a good exercise of body and good effects persist. If you are fanatic or love bicycling not just an exercise but also a sport, there are many benefits you can gain. In this article, you can find some of the benefits which you may experience now. Here are some of them:

  1. It burns your calories. Just like other exercises, bicycling helps you control and lose weight through burning calories. According to some bodybuilder trainer, bicycling burns fats each hour just like swimming and running.  This means that you can lose one pound of fats per week if you do this exercise per hour of the day.
  2. It increases muscular endurance. The riding of bike improves your muscular endurance, especially your legs. This is because your muscles perform repetitive contractions for a long period of time.
  3. Another good effect is that it enhances your aerobic energy. The aerobic capacity of a person is the maximum amount of oxygen your body can consume per kilo of your weight each time you do physical activity. When bicycling improves your cardiorespiratory, your lungs and heart can pump blood and nutrients all over your body without too much effort or causing any respiratory and cardiovascular problems.

But aside from having good effects, you cannot really avoid getting bad effects as well. One of the most common one was developing sores and chafing on your groin part because there is always a friction on your clothes and seat.  This cause some discomfort on your sitting. There is even a study that said sitting discomfort or pressure may cause impotence to the male.
