What muscles does an exercise bike work?
First and foremost, an exercise bike can be used for much more than simply working out muscles. Indeed, exercise bikes can also be used to help shift stubborn extra weight and to also improve your overall health. However, if there are certain muscles that you want to strengthen, you'll be pleased to discover that working out on an exercise bike can bolster a range of muscles including calves, hamstrings, and even your quadriceps. Plus, it can even work out muscles in your core, as well as your back and glutes to give you a workout that targets areas across your body!
However, one of the areas that exercise bikes typically struggle to work out is your upper body which includes your biceps, triceps, and shoulders. If you would rather focus on working out your upper body as well as your lower body, then it's best to opt for a rowing machine or a cross trainer as they provide a full-body work out experience. Alternatively, if your home gym is more like a small space in your living room or bedroom, then you may not want a large item of fitness equipment taking up valuable floorspace. Instead, you could opt for a kettlebell, pair of dumbbells, or even a pull-up bar to help you achieve your fitness goals.
Which is better a treadmill or an exercise bike?
This depends on what you want a treadmill or an exercise bike for. For example, people who are training for a marathon, will often prefer the treadmill as this mimics real marathons and helps to build up stamina. However, exercise bikes also have their perks if you become tired of running and want to get fitter and train your lower body while also trying something different. Plus, exercise bikes are a lower impact form of exercise when compared to treadmills, meaning they're kinder to the joints and muscles in your legs and feet. This makes them suitable for anyone who is recovering from an injury or looking for a way to ease themselves into running either on a treadmill or outdoors.
Exercise bikes FAQs
Can exercise bikes be as effective as running?
Yes, if used effectively. The key is to incorporate short bursts of intensity, which can mean that for 30 seconds, you go as fast as you can before returning to normal speed to recover. Repeat this six to eight times per session and try to increase the sprinting time as you build up more muscle.
What are some tips for buying a good exercise bike?
When it comes to buying a good exercise bike, it's all about quality, comfort, versatility and value for money. Structural integrity is another important factor, as you need it to be sturdy. If you don't have a dedicated home gym or you're limited on space, look for a foldable model that can be stowed away when not in use.
How often should I ride my exercise bike?
To achieve the best results, you should use your exercise bike three times a week, with sessions lasting at least 30 minutes.
How can exercise bikes help you lose weight?
Exercise bikes require physical work, which is the first and most important step for burning calories. Then by gathering muscle, you eliminate fat, which will help you to tone up and trim down. Regular use will also improve your stamina and strength.
What are the physical benefits of exercise bikes?
It's no secret that exercise is good for your general health and well-being, but did you know that using an exercise bike can give you an energy boost, too?

Not only that, regularly using your exercise bike can improve your muscle strength and even sculpt your body, helping you tone up, trim down and shape up all at the same time!
