Common mistakes in cycling fitness
Resist the bowing posture
It’s said to sit properly and stand properly. Likewise, there are standard cycling postures. Incorrect riding postures not only affect the exercise effects but also bring about damages to the body. For example, cycling with the legs outward and bowing are both incorrect postures.
The right posture: the body slightly leans forward with two arms straight and abdomen contracted, using abdominal breathing method. Keep two legs parallel to the crossbeam and car cross-beam, coordinate knees and buttock joints and grasp the rhythm of riding.
Step, pull, lift and push properly.
The right way to pedal includes four continuous motions of stepping, pulling, lifting and pushing. Firstly you should step down, contract your calf backward, lift, and finally pushes forwards. This is exactly a pedaling circle. Such cadent pedalings not only save the energy but also help you to speed up.
Learn to “walk” first before learning to “run”
Many young cycling beginners are always so confident that they crave for long distance and fast speed before mastering the standard postures. Some even have cycled for 50 kilometers and pursue mere speed and strength though they have not cycled for a long distance. This kind of cycling damages the body much and may even induce serious water knees.
It is recommended that the beginners increase the amount of exercise after finding their own frequencies. One may pedal 60 to 80 times per minute in average. At least 20 minutes high-frequency warm-up at a slow speed is needed before the cycling so that the body can sweat slightly.
