3 Health Benefits Of eBiking
Boost Your Serotonin And Dopamine Like many other forms of exercise, cycling causes your body to release chemicals into your system, this includes serotonin, dopamine, and various endorphins. This boost of serotonin and dopamine can be game-changing if you’re trying to fight the effects of workplace stress or if you’re struggling with low mood. The stress-battling chemicals serotonin and dopamine could also help to improve your job satisfaction, thanks to the improvement in mood and increase in happiness levels. You might even find yourself avoiding caffeinated beverages in the morning, finding a morning cycle far more effective at giving you that early morning boost than the cup of coffee your co-workers may be clinging onto as they walk to their desks.
It’s A Form Of Low-Impact Cardio Aerobic exercise, also known as cardio is a type of physical exercise which primarily depends on the aerobic energy generating process. This means that is requires the use of oxygen to meet the body’s energy demands during exercise. There are lots of different types of cardiovascular exercise, including running, swimming, and playing sports. However, some forms of cardio are known as high-impact due to the force exerted on the joints or bones as a result of the physical activity. Whilst high impact workouts such as playing football, running, or enjoying a game of tennis do typically burn fewer calories than low impact workouts, there are risks to high impact exercise, as it results in frequent strain being placed on our joints. So if you’re recovering from an injury or if you suffer from arthritis, a low impact form of exercise is preferable. According to information on treated.com, “low impact exercise can be just as beneficial to heart health as high impact activities.” So in addition to those with injuries or conditions which make high impact exercise unadvisable, low impact activities such as cycling on an electric bike is a great option for those who aren’t currently partaking in regular exercise but want to start, for example if you would like to start a weight loss journey.
It Could Be More Advantageous Than Analogue Cycling There is an argument to be made that cycling on an electric bike could actually be more beneficial with regards to health and exercise than cycling an analogue or push-powered bicycle. At first this may seem strange, after all with a pedal assist motor contributing to the movement of the bicycle, how can this compare to a pedal only option? However, it’s a little more complex than that. After all, in order to gain the health benefits of exercise, it’s not sufficient to exercise once; it requires sustained effort over a period of time. Unfortunately, not everyone has the mental fortitude and/or the physical ability to keep up a strict fitness regime. However, as the pedal assist motor lends a helping hand and makes it less physically tiring to cycle, there’s reason to suggest you might be more likely to continue cycling and more likely to cycle more often, thus in the long term, cycling more than you may have done with a pedal only bicycle. According to information from Bicycling.com “when 20 non-exercising men and women e-biked about 40 minutes three days a week, they improved their cardiovascular fitness and blood sugar in just one month”
Ladies, Would You Like To Join The eBiking Community?
Generally speaking, women’s bodies are different from men’s in a variety of ways. The typical woman is shorter, has less muscle mass, and has narrower shoulders than the typical man. This means that in order to provide a more comfortable riding experience, many women’s bicycles have shorter top tubes and reduced stem lengths. This style of bicycle is best suited to women who are shorter than average or petite in build.
However, it is important to remember that whilst in general women’s bodies are different from men’s bodies. Women come in a whole range of different shapes and sizes. So whilst some women may prefer a “woman’s bicycle”, others may prefer a “unisex” or a “men’s bicycle”. That being said, if you find yourself more comfortable with a unisex or men’s frame, you may want to swap the saddle to a woman’s bicycle saddle. This is because they are designed differently more men and women, for ladies the saddle should provide support to their bones whilst sitting; however it should also relieve pressure on soft tissue.
