The Benefits of the Star Trac Upright Bike

Benefit 1 – A boost to cardio fitness

The Star Trac Upright Bike is a brilliant way to really get your heart pumping. Cardiovascular, or ‘aerobic’ workouts such as cycling strengthen your heart, your lungs and your muscles. They improve the flow of blood and oxygen throughout your whole body. This then, in turn, can benefit your health in a number of ways! This includes:
– Improved memory and brain functioning
– Lower blood pressure
– Better Sleep
– Improved Blood Sugar Levels
– A Stronger Immune system
– Better overall mood
– Lower Stress Levels
– and More energy

Benefit 2 – Helping with Weight loss

Depending on how intense your workout session is, as well as your body weight, you can burn more than 600 calories in an hour with a stationary bike workout. This makes indoor cycling an excellent workout option for burning calories quickly! After all, burning more calories than you consume is the number one rule of weight loss!

Benefit 3 – Burning Body Fat

Working out at a high intensity with the Star Trac Upright Bike helps to burn calories and build strength, and both of these in turn can lead to fat loss.

Benefit 4 – Provides a steady, low-impact workout

A stationary bike such as the Star Trac Upright Bike gives a low impact workout that uses smooth movements to strengthen bones and joints without putting too much pressure on them. This makes them a great workout option for people with joint issues or injuries.

Benefit 5 – Strengthens your legs and your lower body muscles

The Star Trac Upright Bike stationary bike can help build strength in your legs and your lower body. This is even more effective when using a higher resistance. The pedalling action can help strengthen your calves, hamstrings and your quadriceps. Additionally, it can work the muscles in your core, back and your glutes! And the more muscle you tone and build, the more calories your body will use to maintain them! The weight loss keeps on coming!

Benefit 6 – The Star Trac Upright Bike is great for Interval Training!

Interval Training allows you to alternate short bursts of intense exercise with longer intervals of less intense exercise. This type of training is great at helping you burn more calories in less time, and it also elevates your cardio fitness with its short bursts of intensity.

Stationary bikes allow for varied resistance levels, so you can exercise at low, medium or high intensities. This makes it great for an interval training workout!

Benefit 7 – The Star Trac Upright Bike is safer than road cycling.

Cycling outdoors can be a great way to exercise, but it does come with certain hazards, such as inattentive drivers, uneven or slick road surfaces, and poor visibility. Also, if it’s hot and humid, or cold and wet, it can be hard to muster up the motivation to head outdoors. It might not even be safe to do so.

With indoor cycling, you don’t have to be concerned about traffic, road conditions, or the elements. You can work out safely at a comfortable temperature any time of the year.

Working out with the Star Trac Upright Bike

Workout for Beginners

If you’re just beginning to building your fitness, the key is to start slowly and to gradually add more time and intensity.

Start with a 25- to 35-minute workout and progress from there, adding time in 1-minute increments as you build up your fitness.

Here’s a sample beginner’s workout:

Start off pedalling at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.
Switch to medium intensity for 5 minutes, followed by:
high intensity for 1-2 minutes
medium intensity for 5 minutes
high intensity for 1-2 minutes
medium intensity for 5 minutes
Finish by pedalling at a low intensity for 5 minutes.

Workout for Weight Loss

This type of workout helps to burn calories and body fat, and it can be a good option to include in a weight loss plan. It’s also a good option if you want to switch up your resistance levels quickly.

Here’s a sample weight loss workout plan:

Start off pedalling at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.
Switch to medium intensity for 3-5 minutes.
Alternate between high intensity (1-3 minutes) and medium intensity (3-5 minutes) for the next 20 to 30 minutes.
Cool down by pedalling at a low intensity for 5-10 minutes.

Workout for interval training

Once you’ve built up your fitness, you may want to boost your strength and stamina with interval training.

Here’s a sample interval training plan:

Start off pedalling at a low intensity for 10 minutes.
Switch to medium intensity for 10 minutes, followed by:
high intensity for 2 minutes
low intensity for 2 minutes
high intensity for 2 minutes
low intensity for 2 minutes
high intensity for 2 minutes
Cool down by pedalling at low intensity for 5-10 minutes.
Over time, you can increase your intervals one minute at a time.
