Recumbent bikes: joint- and back gentle training

Recumbent bikes originate from physiotherapy and therapy. They feature a very joint- and back gentle training position due to their backrest. This very comfortable training has made them very popular fitness machines for home use. The training on a recumbent bike is like that on a recumbent bicycle: the pedals are rather in front of the body than below it.

The training with a recumbent bike offers the same calory consumption like on a common bike trainer. Thus, recumbent bikes get more and more popular, because - in contrast to an upright bike ergometer - they offer more comfort for the same training effect and allow, i. e., to read or use the Smartphone while exercising. Your hands are free, because you do not have to grasp the handlebar.

The correct training position

The ergonomics and good training position are very important. Compared to ergometers, recumbent bikes have a much deeper and rather backwards positioned sitting position. In this position, the load on the spine is very reduced and the discs are relieved. This training position is much more comfortable and allows the free use of hands. The back-gentle position makes the recumbent bikes very recommendable for users with back problems or herniated disc.

Pay attention to the following points regarding ergonomics

The seat needs to be adjustable in horizontal direction. An infinitely variable adjustment is ideal to adjust the sitting position, so that it is comfortable and corresponds to your personal needs.

The backrest should be multiple adjustable and stable. More and more manufacturers rely on MESH tissue: backrests made of such material are very breathable, which reduces the transpiration on the back. The structure of this material also offers an optimal adjusting to the spine, which gets best-possible supported.

In order to adjust the sitting position correctly, the levers and adjusting screws should be easy to reach and use from the sitting position. When you adjust the seat, make sure that the leg is never completely stretched throughout the pedalling movement.

Recumbent bikes with pulse measuring

Like all other fitness machines, the recumbent bikes are great for losing weight at home. In order to make the weight loss training as successful as possible, the recumbent bike should offer the possibility of heart rate control. In certain pulse zones you achieve certain training targets more effectively. Heart rate control offers the advantage to set a special pulse zone in which you exercise. The machine adapts the resistance automatically so that you always remain in this pulse zone. Thus you train at 55 to 65 % of the maximum heart rate, i. e., in the optimal fat burning zone.

The heart rate can be measured via sensors in the handles. Though the measuring with a chest strap is more precise. These are mostly separately available, we have listed appropriate models in our accessory recommendations.

Recumbent bikes with Watt control

Recumbent bikes are often used at home for continuing therapeutical measures after staying at a rehab or a health resort. In this context, certain heart rate zones or wattages are often defined by doctors or therapists. The physical stress can be precisely indicated with the wattage. using the Watt control, a resistance load can be set, which is precisely kept then. Due to these defined zones, you will protect from overload and train in the zone which is the most effective for you.
