Recumbent stationary bikes or ellipticals from Portland Fitness are a great way to get cardio exercise. But what’s the difference between upright and recumbent bikes? Aside from allowing you sit down comfortably, stationary recumbent bikes provide a low impact way to workout your endurance. Unlike an upright stationary bike, a recumbent bike lets you rest your body weight on your sitting bones, hands, and feet. That means you can workout longer and harder without getting uncomfortable.
While it ultimately comes down to personal preference, a recumbent bike offers a number of advantages over an upright bike. Staying seated while working out reduces muscle fatigue and provides your body with more support. Recumbent bikes also give you more options for high or low impact workouts, so you can customize it for your needs. Depending upon resistance, a recumbent stationary bike or elliptical from Portland Fitness is a great option for either cardio or lower body workouts.
Many people find using a recumbent bicycle advantageous, either out of need for full back support or a desire for more variety in their workout. Great for the lower body and easy on the upper body, recumbent bikes are more popular than ever.
