Like others stationary bikes also are of two types; recumbent Bikes and an upright ones. The main difference is off course with a position of a human body. Former have a reclined one while the latter goes with an upright body. The usage of both the bikes are entirely different from each other. Both are useful for its appropriate user. But generally recumbent bikes are more comfortable and less hard to ride as compared to an upright bike. Recumbent bikes are very helpful for the patients who have any problem related to lower back. In order to use a recumbent exercise bike at home or at gym one must keep these points in mind before using it.
First of all adjustment of your seat is very necessary. After sitting on a seat adjust it with your comfort level. There are some adjusting screws near the seat which can make it easy to move like your will. Start your ride with a low speed and carefully see the extension ans movement of your knee.
After sitting properly, warm up your body with riding for more 5-7 minutes with a very low speed. But gradually make it high when you feel warm up.
Estimate the duration and timing of your exercise. If someone wants to loose his/her weight, he/she have to use a recumbent bike for 30-40 mints a day. It can only work on a fatty person if he uses it to that time. But if someone use this recumbent bike only for health befits than he do not need to use it longer.
