Biking in a Weight Vest

Biking for Fitness

Using a Weight Vest While Biking

Riding a bike. As they say, once you learn how you'll never forget. Biking for fitness is a great low impact way to get your exercise and enjoy the outside. It can be a high impact workout depending on your fitness goals and level of experience. So once you determine what it is you want to achieve, your fitness regimen should support your chosen goal.

For those athletes who train to be elite cyclists, their workouts concentrate on aerobic and anaerobic power, endurance, core strength and most of all lower body strength. However, if you're looking for something a little less intense, biking for fitness and exercise still can provide a great alternative to attaining the same benefits of elite cyclists. A biking fitness program that utilizes a weighted training vest allows you to supercharge your workout while you ride, helping you to achieve accelerated calorie burn and weight loss along with an increase in strength and cardio conditioning.
