In this weeks article I would like to have a deeper look into Spinning class and its great benefits. Its one of my favourite classes. In this article i will look into 5 greatest benefits of this workout.
About the basics: Spinning is a cardiovascular cycling workout on a stationary bike on which the tension can be increased, decreased, mileage and lapsed time is kept by a computer, calories burned and heart rate can be tracked, cycling routines ranging from strength and endurance training to calorie burners.
Reason 1: Massive Calories burn
Its been proven that thirty minute workout on a Spinning Cycle can burn as much as 500 calories. Even at very intensive levels other cardio equipment couldn't burn that many calories in such a short time. My Spinning class lasts 45 minutes, and there are over 700 calories burnt during it.
Reason 2: Cardiovascular Health
Most Spinning programs include both endurance and cardiovascular training during the workout. At several points you may be required to break your steady pace and speed up to increase your heart rate. It helps to maintain strong and healthy heart.
Reason 3: Fairly safe
Keeps you safe from traumas and no pressure on knee joints and feet unlike other aerobic workouts.
It is a valuable workout for those who cannot use the treadmill or elliptical because of arthritis. Spinning is more comfortable cardiovascular workout, and can be as intensive.
Reason 4: Perfect looking legs
Spinning not only valuable for its calories burning effect but as well, Spinning uses large muscle groups in your legs. It does not take long before your thighs, hamstrings, and calves begin to take beautiful shape.
Reason 5: Mental relaxation
Last but not least reason, is mental relaxation during spinning workout, which is brought by close Spinning cycle team work, energizing music, and the thought that your calories are burned, legs are getting great shape, and with sweat toxins are out of your body.
