Working Out on Recumbent Bikes Is Painful?

Considering the amount of time people put into the GYM, some of you leave the GYM with big muscles, and some of you exit the GYM  after burned a certain amount of calories. Everyone has their reasons for going to the GYM regularly.  There is denying that making the GYM or the workout part of your life a good thing because it will not only open your mind but also refreshes you every time you work out.

There are many types of equipment which you can find in the GYM, but only few machine can give you the workout that can help you lose some weight, gain muscles, and give you the shape you desire for a long time. However, in the crowd, not everyone finds the trainer who gives you detailed information on the workout. Which leaves you with many questions like Should I do it? Is it the pain? And other random questions.

Working Out on Recumbent Bikes Is Painful?

Have you ever came across the machine before? Of course, you did because it is one of the big machine sin the fitness world but in some parts of the country the equipment is still unknown, and one of the major causes is its functions. The Recumbent machine is similar to the cycle or spin bike or indoor bike. The concept of this instrument is similar to the Spin bike, which is one of the reasons why Recumbent is unpopular in few parts of the country.

In other words, nobody knows it benefits, and that is what leaving a wrong impression. Like I have said that everyone has their requirement. If you are using this machine extensively, then you will have pains for the first or two weeks of use because your body is not used to the training and your body does not know the feeling fo workout. However, after few weeks of the use, your body will get used to the exercise, and the pains will disappear for good.

What To Do When The Pain Increases- Precautions

  • If you have a trainer with you, then you should inform him about your status because it will help the instructor understand your situations and suggest you the best.
  • Incase, if you are working out alone at home, then I would advise you to slow down. Let’s assume that this is your second or first week then there is nothing to worry about because it is common when you have started this week then the pains are common in your legs.
  • However, if it is your third or fourth week, then you should slow down. Let’s assume that you are working out for 30 minutes a day then you should decrease it to the level where you are giving your legs some time to heal.
  • If you are having pains in other parts of the body or the pains are not disappearing then consult your doctor immediately.


Sometimes in rare cases, we see that cause of the illnesses are entirely different, and if you ignore now, then you have to pay for it later. “Protection is better than cure” that’s a favorite saying, so what are you waiting for? If you have any questions, then feel free to drop a comment below.

Six Shortcuts to Your Sexiest Body Ever!

Sexiest Body Ever!

1. More Lemon Water: Lemons are alkalizing, detoxifying, appetite suppressing and beautifying to your skin! But don’t stop at just one squeeze. Take a couple of fresh lemons, toss into a blender. Add juice to a pitcher of water and sip throughout the day. Sure, you are gonna put your bladder to work, but you will stave off  cravings and speed up fat loss. Add a fresh strawberry or two for flavor boost.

2. Kick Up The Cardio: Intensity is where it is at to get your best body. Any physical activity beats vegging out on the sofa, but increasing the pace with bursts of intensity, known as interval cardio, is the best way to burn maximum calories in less time, and trigger more post workout fat-burning.

Increase resistance and speed for 20 to 30 seconds and go! Maximum effort for short interval, recover and repeat, can done on elliptical machine, stationary bike, treadmill, cardio classes, etc. Interval cardio is one of the best strategies to transform your body fast.

3. Do Compound Exercises: Swimmers and gymnasts look tone and shapely for a reason. Their sports require use of multiple muscles simultaneously. By adding exercises that simulate the way these athletes train, we achieve similar similar athletic and lean look.

Do compound exercises that work upper, lower and core in one exercise (like kettle bell swings and dumbbell lunges). Sure, it is more challenging, but your body will love you for it!

4. Take Sets to Exhaustion: You are stronger than you think! Don’t be afraid to lift heavy, as long as you keep flawless form. Pick weight so at end of  10 to 12 reps, your muscles are in state of (near) total fatigue. You are not going to get big muscles. You are going to get more tone in less time, and turbo charge metabolism!

5. Cut Carbs After Dark: Many of us have a love and hate affair with carbs: bread, pasta, desert; even fruit with natural sugar can be consumed to excess. Total denial is not the answer, which can lead to binging when willpower falters. We need healthy carbs for energy and recovery. Some carbs (complex, fibrous) are superior than others (starchy, processed.) Earn your carbs through workout quality, otherwise keep intake low to moderate and reduce carbs at night when metabolism slows.

6. Include Healthy Fats: The connection between dietary fat and body fat is a myth. Small amounts of healthy fats help to achieve optimal weight loss and fitness goals.

Our bodies need healthy fats for fast metabolism, cell membrane integrity and optimal brain function. A low intake of healthy fats (2-3 servings per day) daily helps to satisfy hunger to prevent consumption of unhealthy fats and unhealthy carbs.

Craving a late night snack? You are wiser to choose a few unsalted nuts, a spoon of peanut butter, or glass of hot milk over carb-rich treat. Don’t be afraid of small amounts of healthy fat. They are you friends on path to your best body ever!

Best choices include avocado, unsalted nuts and seeds, almond and peanut butter, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, black olives, organic dairy including milk, ricotta, mozzarella, yogurt, kefir and grass fed butter.…
