AIR BIKE 🚴♂️
➖ ➖ ➖
When it comes to cardio, we love a good piece of equipment that will kick our butts 🔥 And one of the newer machines to hit the floor is actually an oldie but goodie: the air bike 💪🏽Don’t be fooled, though. It’s just like riding a bike, but not at all. Unlike a traditional bicycle or spin bike, the air bike has a big fan in lieu of a front WHEEL! And if you’ve heard rumblings that it ain’t easy, it’s true. These “assault” bikes will blast major calories, but straight up humble you, too😲
While you’d set a stationery bike at a certain resistance (or watts), the fan bike is different in that the faster you pedal, the more resistance you generate. The harder you work, the harder it gets! Plus, you also use your arms at the same time, which allows you to work both your upper and lower body together. Boyle calls it the bike equivalent of an indoor rowing machine.
It becomes a total-body exercise, which you’re not able to get on a regular bike. They’re almost like a well-kept secret, because the average person tends to say they’re way too hard. But now that CrossFit’s gone mainstream and HIIT is hotter than ever, there’s a desire for equipment that takes your workout up a notch.
Because you use your arms and legs simultaneously, your heart rate soars about 20 percent higher than if you were to just pedal with your legs. So it makes sense that you also get a boost in calorie burn by about the same amount💪🏽😈
