The world will be celebrating World Bicycle Day on 3 June and as we all know cycling is a wonderful exercise for various reasons. Especially during our busy lifestyle, cycling for even 30 minutes can help fight many problems.
As our lives become more busy, it's natural to eat poorly and neglect our health, which can contribute to unhealthy weight gain. The weight increase is usually seen on the belly and thighs and no one likes a hanging belly and thick legs.
In addition, weight gain can lead to a variety of other issues, such as heart disease, high cholesterol, diabetes, or high blood pressure.
That's why it is very important to reduce weight. If you're concerned about the fat that accumulates on your stomach and legs as you gain weight and want to lose weight quickly, start cycling right now.
Sports Physiotherapist Dr. Zeeshan Ahmed told us about the benefits of cycling for 30 minutes every day.
Dr Zeeshan Ahmed says, "Cycling is a great way to stay fit and active. Apart from that, it not only helps you lose weight but also improves your mood. Cycling is also a good option for reducing body fat if you wish to lose weight. Its biggest advantage is that it can be done by women of all ages. However, if you do not want to ride a bicycle outside, a stationary bicycle can also be used at home."
"Especially when you are planning to lose weight, always keep a small goal in the beginning, , start riding for 15-20 minutes and gradually increase the time. To get in shape and lose weight quickly, you should cycle for at least 30 to 45 minutes each day."
Take a look at the benefits:
Decrease In Body Fat Level
