Recumbent vs Upright Exercise Bikes

A stationary bike provides an excellent cardiovascular, low-impact workout no matter your level of fitness. Working out even a few times a week with an exercise bike can provide health benefits such as weight loss and toning. You can also reduce the risk of getting diabetes, heart disease and other serious medical conditions. For those power riders, exercise bikes are a popular way to build endurance, burn a lot of calories and firm up your legs, thighs and buttocks in the process.

When choosing an exercise bike, there are two different types of bikes for home use. Each design type has its pros and cons and it's important to understand the difference so you can make a well-informed decision:

Upright Models:

Recumbent Bikes:

Most experts say that choosing between an upright and recumbent stationary bike is only a matter of preference. The recumbent bikes provide a more comfortable workout while the upright models can offer more intensity. You need to decide which is right for you based on your personal needs. With either type, finding a quality model is essential in finding a stationary bike that works well and provides an effective workout. Consider and compare several brands in your search and look for independent reviews that help you in your decision-making.
