10 Gründe Fahrrad zu fahren
Hey my loves!
Today I present you 10 reasons why you should definitely ride a bike:
1. Positive effects on the heart and circulatory system
Cycling gets the circulation going and also ensures that blood pressure drops, reducing the risk of a heart attack by 50%.
2. Stimulating fat metabolism
Cycling is good for the figure. When cycling we are in the so-called aerobic range, which means that fat burning is particularly well stimulated here.
3. Strengthening of the immune system
Defenses, including so-called scavenger cells (phagocytes), which destroy bacteria or tumor cells, for example, are activated when you ride a bike and strengthened in the long term. Bacteria are already being fought while cycling.
4. Muscle building
When cycling, not only individual muscles are used, but entire muscle chains. So if you have the feeling that only your legs are being trained, you are definitely wrong! Among other things, hand, torso and butt muscles are built up.
5. Respiratory training
Filling up with fresh air not only contributes to our well-being, it is also very good for our respiratory tract. When cycling, the lungs are evenly filled with oxygen and the respiratory muscles are additionally strengthened. This offers protection against nasty colds.
6. Strengthening of the back
The circular leg movements that you make when riding a bike primarily build up the muscles in the lumbar region. This strengthens the back. In addition, the movements relieve tension in the spine.
7. Reducing the risk of cancer
Good news for women! Regular cycling reduces the risk of breast cancer. Regular exercise can also reduce the risk of various types of cancer.
8. Joint support
When cycling, various joints are better supplied with oxygen but also with nutrients. In addition, cycling is much easier on the joints than, for example, jogging.
9. Improvement in brain activity
Cycling increases the oxygen supply to the brain. The brain can work better and is therefore able to perform better.
10. Happiness activation and stress reduction
After just half an hour on the bike, endorphins and serotonin are released. Well-being increases. stress is reduced. Cycling can even counteract and prevent depression. So ride yourselves happy!
Cycling has many positive effects and can therefore only be an advantage.
I wish you a lot of fun cycling!
