Recumbent Exercise Bike For A Low Impact Workout

Updated on July 22, 2010

Aside from providing a thorough workout to the inner thighs, butt, calves, and other lower body parts, a recumbent exercise bike is well-suited for hefty individuals (with lots of extra poundage) or those afflicted with back, shoulder or knee/joint problems, or grappling with mobility issues. With this type of exercise bike, they can obtain an aerobic workout that’s gentle on these body parts.

A quality recumbent bike lets the user recline, taking the pressure off the back area and the weight off of the legs. It also offers lumbar support and exercises the addominal muscles. Moreover, such an exercise bike also works out the gluteal muscles better than traditional exercise bikes.

Medical practitioners also give the nod of approval to patients suffering from back problems or even cerebral palsy to use the recumbent exercise bike for their exercise requirements.
