So, you want to lose some weight. You exercise regularly, but you still can't seem to get rid of that stubborn body fat. If there is one cardio machine that will help you tone up the fastest, it's an exercise bike. Riding exercise bikes helps to burn calories and melt fat like no other machine out there. So if your goal is to lose body fat and tone up fast, this article is for you!
It all starts with an effective training plan. The most effective workout we've found is High Intensity Interval Training. You can do HIIT on exercise bikes by alternating between 30-45-second sprints and 1-2 minutes of easy pedalling for several rounds (around 20). Make sure you are pushing yourself during the intense intervals, but not straining so much that your form suffers!
HIIT is so effective because it is a form of anaerobic training. During HIIT you exercise so intensely that your body's oxygen supply can't keep up with the demands placed on it, forcing it to turn to other sources for energy - such as fat!
HIIT workouts are not just great for burning calories quickly. They also raise your metabolism for hours after exercise, so you will continue to burn fat long after your HIIT session ends.
