The recumbent stationary bike is the one that has a backrest with the pedals out in front. It will give you a good lower body workout and is great for cardio fitness and weight loss.
The main advantage of using a recumbent bike over the conventional upright model is it places less stress on your lower spine. Because it has a backrest, it also offers a more comfortable ride.
When using the recumbent bike, start slow with a gentle warm up, then gradually increase your speed by simply pedalling faster. You have the option of increasing the resistance. Do this regularly, as you adapt to the bike. This will place more emphasis on your leg muscles and ensure you keep making progress.
Proper form is important when using the recumbent bike. Maintain a straight posture with your back tight against the backrest the whole time you workout and push hard with your legs when pedalling. Follow this same pattern if you grasp the side handles. Make sure you finish with a slow pedalling cool down…
