It is pedaling that many people leave stress aside, improve heart rate and even eliminate extra pounds. Elected by the United Nations (UN) as the most ecologically sustainable transport on the planet, the bicycle offers quality of life to the user. However, it is necessary to use it correctly so as not to harm health.
The neurosurgeon of the Federal University of São Paulo (Unifesp) Vinicius Benites, specialist in diseases of the spine, explains that the practice of cycling should be accompanied by muscle strengthening for the muscles, which can be done through bodybuilding. This applies to those who use the bicycle as a means of transportation, for those who like to pedal only on the weekend and for professionals.
Tips to enjoy the benefits of cycling:
– For weekend cyclists or beginners: It is important that the position on the bicycle is comfortable. If a beginner tries to adopt the position of the professional cyclist aiming for high performance, he will not feel natural – and the nuisance tends to worsen over time on the bike, which can end the initial enthusiasm. You should remain standing erect on top of the bike, with your hands on the handlebars.
– For professional cyclists: You should adopt the position with the support of the elbows on the handlebars, as it is the most favorable for a better performance. As they are athletes, they end up complementing their training with strengthening of the core muscles (center), which supports the lumbar spine. Because of this, they can withstand long stretches comfortably.
– For cyclists who use the bicycle as a means of transport: It is important to pedal with the spine as straight as possible. If possible, cyclists should strengthen the musculature that protects the lumbar spine in order to avoid disorder over the years.
And before starting to ride a bike, he does not fail to consult a doctor, who can assess his conditioning and physical endurance. Do not forget to make use of protective accessories like helmet, elbow pads, knee pads and cycling gloves.
