Riding an electric bicycle may be the most ideal low-impact, multifunctional exercise option currently available. As a full-body workout, its numerous benefits are evident. It is natural for beginners in this activity to wonder whether riding an electric fat-tire bicycle can change their physique. Traditionally, cycling has been regarded as an exercise primarily targeting the lower body, so it is completely understandable to question whether it can lead to weight loss or muscle growth in the legs.
In fact, contrary to common belief, riding a folding electric bicycle not only exercises the lower body by increasing muscle strength but also impacts body parts that may initially seem unrelated to cycling. This article will address several physique-related concerns that electric bicycle beginners are most interested in!
What muscles can be exercised through riding an electric bike?
Riding an electric fat-tire bicycle primarily exercises the lower body, including the quadriceps, hamstrings, gluteal muscles, and calf muscles. Additionally, it can also impact the upper body by engaging the triceps, biceps, and deltoid muscles. Riders rely on upper body strength to maintain an upright and stable position on the saddle, especially when riding on rough terrains, and utilizing core stabilizing muscles can help engage the abdominal muscles.
If you wish to focus on building larger leg muscles, you can incorporate more weight training exercises such as squats, deadlifts, lunges, and leg presses to target the calf muscles and quadriceps.
Many female riders often worry about developing large muscles. However, the fact is that testosterone is crucial for muscle growth, and women have approximately 20% less testosterone and 20% more body fat than men. Therefore, under the same exercise intensity, women tend to have less muscle definition compared to men. Female athletes with well-developed leg muscles are the result of several months of high-intensity training. Fortunately, the HiPEAK ELIAS folding electric bicycle features 7 levels of pedal assist. Female riders can adjust the assist level to keep their legs active without adding extra training intensity. Therefore, women who regularly ride the HiPEAK ELIAS electric fat-tire bicycle can feel healthier, stronger, and aid in weight loss without turning into bodybuilders.
Can achieve physical weight loss through riding an electric bike?
Although the HiPEAK ELIAS electric folding bicycle is equipped with a 750W motor, making riding easier for people, it still consumes the rider’s physical energy, resulting in calorie burn. When there is a calorie deficit in the body, weight loss occurs.
It’s important to understand that weight loss occurs when the number of calories expended by the body exceeds the number of calories consumed. Therefore, while riding an electric fat-tire bicycle can help burn calories faster, it is not enough on its own. It is also necessary to tailor one’s diet plan to meet the needs of daily exercise and weight loss goals.
Is riding an electric bike benefit for abdominal weight loss?
Riding an electric bike can help the body burn calories and fat, but it cannot reduce abdominal fat solely. Fat loss is a systemic process that requires reducing overall body fat to achieve weight loss, rather than targeting specific areas of fat loss.
However, engaging in electric bike fitness can strengthen core muscle groups, including the abdominal muscles, lumbar muscles, and gluteal muscles, which can improve posture and reduce the formation of abdominal fat. Additionally, moderate exercise can promote normal functioning of the digestive system, helping to alleviate stomach discomfort such as constipation.
While riding an electric bike can’t directly reduce abdominal fat, it can improve body and enhance overall health by engaging in systemic fat loss and strengthening core muscle groups.
Is riding an electric bike benefit for hip?
People often consider their buttocks as an aesthetic feature and hope to look good when wearing tight pants or shorts. In fact, riding an electric bicycle has certain benefits for the buttocks, especially in terms of shaping and strengthening the gluteal muscles. Electric bicycles require significant pedal movements, which provide excellent exercise for the gluteal muscles, improving their strength and enhancing the overall shape of the buttocks with consistent practice.
Furthermore, prolonged sitting can lead to muscle atrophy and poor blood circulation in the buttocks, while riding an electric bicycle increases the activity level of the gluteal muscles, promotes blood circulation, helps improve these issues, and reduces the risk of fat accumulation in the buttocks, maintaining a healthy physique.
However, it is important to note that improper riding posture can cause buttock pain and discomfort. Therefore, it is crucial to adjust the seat height, angle, and riding posture correctly to avoid any potential injuries.
Is riding an electric bike benefit for arms?
The main muscles engaged when riding an electric bike are the leg and gluteal muscles, while the the exercise on the arms is relatively minor. The electric power assist of the bike can reduces the movement of arm, as arm are primarily required for steering or braking in most situations.
However, in certain circumstances, riding an electric bike can involve an arm movements to increase the exercise effect. For example, when riding uphill or against strong wind, additional arm strength is needed to propel the bicycle forward. Additionally, during high-speed riding or when aiming to enhance cardiovascular training, one can try using the arms to increase the intensity of the ride, thereby boosting the overall exercise effect.
It is undeniable that riding an electric bike can have an impact on body, but the specific extent of that impact depends on several factors. These factors include the rider’s gender, diet plan, and whether they incorporate other strength training exercises. Of course, the choice of electric bicycle is crucial in this regard, and the HiPEAK ELIAS folding electric bicycle is rapidly gaining popularity among fitness enthusiasts. This is attributed to the powerful 750W motor and the large-capacity 48V 15AH lithium battery of the ELIAS model. Compared to traditional bicycles, it allows people to ride farther and longer, boosts their confidence, and ultimately facilitates physical and psychological transformations.
