How To Convert Your Non-Smart Exercise bike into A Smart One?

If you want to pair your non-smart exercise bike with any bike training app, your only option is to get one of the cadence sensors for spin bikes.

A cadence sensor is a great gear that can facilitate your cycling and pedaling sessions by allowing you to track how hard you are working. However, finding the right cadence monitor can be a challenge. This is because most cadence monitors aren’t designed to work with spin bikes.

Here you have a choice- Magene S014 speed/cadence sensor for a spin bike.

The sensor supports Bluetooth low energy 4.2 protocol which only be used when riding indoors.

How to install it?

  1. Before installation, please remove and reinstall the battery to ensure the sensor is working.
  2. Install the flat silicone gasket on the bottom of the sensor and install the sensor on the inside of the left crank using a rubber ring.
  3. Rotate the crank and search for the cadence sensor using

Once the installation is complete, you can search the bike in the cycling app and enjoy cycling.

With the sensor, you can get cadence and speed data when pedaling and get better results with these data-based training workouts.

Exercise Misunderstandings You Need to Know

Exercise on an Empty Stomach Burns More Calories?

This is a concept widely held by many people. It is believed that eating leads to being overweight. Without the intake, together with exercise consumption, as the consumption is much greater than the intake, there will be a better effect of weight loss.

However, without food intake before exercise, the energy to exercise is not enough, thus undermining the effect and efficiency of exercise, or in severe cases, causing muscle loss. After exercising on an empty stomach, the human body may want some compensation. Given that exercise consumes a lot of calories, still, on an empty stomach, you will subconsciously indulge yourself with food, letting yourself eat more food instead.

However, it does not mean eating a full meal before exercise but appropriately having some food, such as bananas, bread, and other high-carbohydrate foods to replenish energy for exercise.

Proper nutritional supplements can increase exercise efficiency.

The More Exercise the Better?

Exercise is indeed an important way to keep healthy. However, to go beyond the limit is as bad as to fall short. Only a proper amount of exercise can make the body healthy. Our body muscles will feel tired. Next time, we will discuss in detail how to “strike a balance between exercise training and rest”.

In addition to the physical injury, the body and mind will also feel exhausted and unsustainable if the practice continues frantically all day with excessive exercise.

Proper rest is of great necessity. It not only avoids overtraining but also reduces the risk of sports injuries as muscles have time to rest and repair damaged muscles for the purpose of muscle growth.

Be nice to yourself. In the training plan, add a day of reduced training or a day off every 3 days. Relaxation at the appropriate time is also a necessary step in fitness.

No Sweating, Not Enough Exercise?

Many people take sweat as a measure of exercise quality, holding that the greater amount of sweat proves that the training intensity and time are up to the standard.

However, the mechanism of sweating is affected by many factors, including the environment, weather, temperature, body fat percentage, and clothing. As all these factors have an influence on the sweating of the body, the amount of sweat cannot simply be used to represent the exercise intensity.

The intensity and time of exercise should be judged based on the heart rate. Only the heart will not deceive you. For some people whose body has a strong ability to adjust the temperature, as the sweat drops with several movements, it does not mean that the exercise intensity is reached.

Drinking-Water During exercise May Cause Cramp?

Cramp is sudden involuntary muscle contractions that cause stiffness and pain in the body. Emotional stress, lack of minerals such as magnesium and calcium, excessive water loss, and electrolyte imbalance can cause cramps.

Drinking water during exercise will not cause cramps. The only connection between drinking water and cramp should be: Drinking no water during exercise, but drinking too much after that at a time will cause electrolyte imbalance in the body, thus leading to cramps. Drinking too much water at a time will form a physical burden, making physical discomfort.

The best way to replenish water is to drink water continuously. During exercise, even if not thirsty, drink about 100 cc of water. If the exercise lasts for a long time, have sports drinks to help replenish the salt and energy lost during exercise.

Correct fitness knowledge, together with continuous exercise, makes satisfactory fitness results.

Why Does Weight Go Up After Exercise?

The chosen exercise is suitable for the formulation of a reasonable diet plan. However, after the start of exercise, it is surprising that the weight should go up instead of going down. Why is that?

First, we have to know that the human body weight consists of four parts: bones, muscles, fat, and intracellular and extracellular fluids (water). It is exactly the different proportions of these four parts that make the various external forms of human beings. During weight loss, the bone weight remains the same, but the proportion of muscles will increase and that of fat decrease. For the same weight of muscles and fat, the muscle volume is smaller. Hence, our ultimate goal of weight loss is to reduce fat and increase muscle.

In fact, the body is lazier than you think as it prefers less exercise, yet more food. When exercise starts, the body will immediately convert the food, which should be stored as fat in the body, into glycogen and store it in the body. It is a good thing because the excess intake becomes the source of power. The increase in exercise will also put the body under tremendous pressure. Muscle fibers are constantly damaged and repaired. To repair this inflammation, water storage is required in the body.

There is no need to worry about water stored during glycogen storage or repair of inflammation in the body. All the stored water will be flushed out when exercise continues for more than four weeks.

When Does Weight Loss Start?

When the body naturally adapts to your lifestyle, not too much glycogen will be stored. With the control of the diet, even the original fat will be consumed. When the proportion of fat begins to decrease and that of muscle increases, even though the number on the weight scale goes up, the body becomes more compact.

Say No to Dieting!

Remember not to go on a diet and avoid exercising on an empty stomach. When you are hungry, your body enters a self-preservation phase where the eaten food is directly converted into fat for storage, instead of glycogen. People who are on a diet will lose weight at the beginning because the body does not absorb water to convert glycogen but directly converts the food into fat. Besides, hunger will reduce muscles, resulting in a decrease in the basal metabolic rate and the conversion rate of glycogen, thus with a higher probability of regaining weight.

Benefits of Keeping An Exercise Routine

I believe that 80% of people exercise to achieve a certain purpose. The most common ones are for weight loss, body shaping, or being healthy. Of course, there may exist other reasons, such as cultivating hobbies and making friends. However, regardless of the original intention, as long as you keep exercising, there will be corresponding rewards or even rewards above your expectations.

In fact, proper fitness training will bring three of the most common and practical benefits.

Weight Loss and Body Shaping

Many people argue, “Fitness and shaping are acceptable, but does it really work for weight loss? Doesn’t dieting also help lose weight?” Of course, dieting is one way to lose weight, yet neither stable nor effective for a long time, still less effective for shaping. Nevertheless, fitness is another story. Fitness is a scientific exercise for the muscles of different parts of the body. Exercise changes the muscles to change various parts of the body, finally achieving the aims of weight loss and body shaping. The fat loss and shape through fitness will work and last for a long time, without an easy rebound.

Making Friends

Long-term fitness can make you more charming and allow you to show your better side to others. For women, fitness means a perfect body, as well as eliminating accumulated toxins in the body to keep energetic and attractive. The same is true for men. Exercise can make the body more coordinated and powerful with a sense of security.

Keeping Healthy

Fitness can keep the body’s hormone secretion at a relatively high level, thereby delaying body aging and muscle reduction. For those who should concentrate on study or work, fitness can help keep a good mental state, instead of being listless every day.

Scientific fitness training brings many visible and tangible changes, such as lowered blood pressure, the building of muscles, and improvements in cardiopulmonary function, joint mobility, and body flexibility. More importantly, fitness has other invisible but real changes, such as improvements in sleep quality, self-confidence, vitality, memory, and immunity. Hence, fitness builds a strong and powerful body, with good physical strength in many sports. Long-term fitness can effectively enhance our body’s immunity to resist the invasion of bacteria, ensuring a healthy life.

So, are you ready to create and maintain a good fitness routine? Welcome to share your fitness routine.

How To Stay Motivated To Exercise at Home?

At-home fitness is more demanding in self-discipline. Why is it so difficult to keep exercising at home? The difficulties may be the feelings of being dull, boring, and lonely, without the company of the scenery along the road, without the encouragement of companions. Fitness at home is more like an inner challenge and practice. How can we overcome them?

Home Fitness ≠ Dull and Boring

Now, just one spinning bike covering an area of 0.5 square meters, together with a mobile phone, can quickly kill the boredom during fitness at home. Create your fitness routine by joining the game. Richer cycling routes, online events, fat-burning courses, and customized resistance adjustment, guarantee the training intensity. Meanwhile, in the online competition, there is an opportunity to compete with many participants to top the list. The fitness training is completed by playing the game.

No scenery during exercise indoors? 3D simulation virtual reality visualizes the 100-kilometer cycling routes which provide a free and smooth riding experience. Routes are subject to free choices with combinations of training units including multiple basic flat roads, hilly roads (up-and-down roads), and mountain roads (climbs). Thus, the training aims can be achieved based on the free choice of one’s own will.

Home Fitness ≠ Not professional

All the courses on the spinning bike are formulated by experienced professional coaches. Under the premise of power training, personalized courses are provided according to the various needs of different users. An exercise plan is tailored for you according to your own exercise level and goals.

As a rare electromagnetic resistance spin bike on the market, MAGENE MG70 provides a more professional way of smart resistance adjustment. It enables a real sense of the different riding resistances of uphill, downhill, and flat roads during indoor riding, closer to the real outdoor riding experience. Automatic adjustment throughout the riding allows you to focus on the scenery along the road, achieving fitness goals more efficiently.

Home Fitness ≠ No Socialization

With online group training and online PK, riding at home no longer looks lonely. It supports exercising with several friends but also competing with online opponents matched in real-time. Cycling in real track races can be fully experienced. Cyclists can experience their own indoor track race, with real competition rules enforced, and full simulation of features including acceleration and race tactics.

More interesting courses and more motivated group members are the keys to building a fitness routine at home. Besides, a smarter fitness device that understands you better can offer greater help in achieving your fitness goals.

Armband VS chest strap heart rate monitor, which is better?

Armband and chest strap heart rate monitors are doing the same things but in different ways. They all can guide you while training and can keep your workouts more effective. When we choose, we would like to know them well first.

The principles of heart rate detection are different.


Each heartbeat of the body produces cardiac pacing current. The heart rate chest strap is such a device that can sense the cardiac pacing current. The sensor’s pole piece is located on both sides of the anterior end of the chest strap. When wearing the chest strap, the pole piece in it collects the user’s fluctuation of the cardiac pacing current. It is then transmitted to the heart rate meter through wireless transmission technology and converted into a heart rate BPM value for observation. This is the mainstream and more accurate method of measuring the exercise heart rate.

HRM60 heart rate monitor

An optical heart rate monitor measures the light absorbance of the hemoglobin in blood vessels to monitor the pulse. The heart rate sensor is equipped with an infrared beam emission circuit and a reflection-receiving circuit. The advantage of this heart rate measuring method is that it is very simple and does not need a chest strap. However, due to the extremely weak signal that is much vulnerable to external interference, this method may result in an inaccurate measurement result. In addition, it usually needs to work in a quiet environment.

HRM80 armband heart rate monitor

Magene HRM80 heart rate armband can collect the variation data through the photodiode and calculate the heart rate. With the dual-beam array, you can acquire more accurate detection data and capture real-time heart rate changes more efficiently.

Performances in different sports


For running, cycling, and regular dynamic exercise, the heart rate armband is fully competent for heart rate monitoring and its data accuracy is close to that of the chest strap. The advantages of the armband also include convenient and comfortable wearing and a long time of continuous working, taking the Magene HRM80 armband, for example, can last up to 45 hours of workout after each charging. It is currently applicable to most physical sports such as running and cycling.

In this respect, the armband wins!

However, it was found that in other exercise tests such as Bobby jumps, where blood is in weightlessness and hypergravity, the performance of real-time heart rate monitoring of the armband is less stable and accurate than that of the chest strap. Only about 5 seconds after stopping exercise can it return to normal.

The principle of the optical heart rate sensor is to calculate the heart rate by measuring the changes in the light reflection signal of the blood in the arm/wrist. But, in Bobbie jumps, where the blood is weightless and overweight, the optical sensor cannot process filtering, thus resulting in inaccurate data measuring. The heart rate chest strap, however, has no such trouble. It calculates the heart rate by measuring weak changes of electrical current in the human body through an electrode.

So, from this perspective, the chest strap wins!


Above all, the armband outperforms the chest strap and is comfortable wearing while the chest strap enjoys a higher accuracy.
The armband is more suitable for sports where hand strength can be kept stable, such as running, cycling, yoga, etc. The chest strap is more suitable for the most intense exercises and can meet the need for professional heart rate monitoring.

Fat On Which Body Parts Can be Reduced by Riding a Spinning Bike

You can lose fat on your hips, abdomen, and legs by riding a spinning bike. To avoid heat or chill, many people choose to ride a spinning bike in the gym or at home, which helps them lose weight effectively. It is recommended that you combine cycling with other activities to lose weight all over.

Legs

While riding a spinning bike, your legs get exercised the most. As you need to keep pedaling with muscles on your legs, fat on these parts is consumed quickly to make your legs slimmer.

Abdomen

While riding a spinning bike, the muscle group of your abdomen is exercised along with the moves of your legs. This activates your abdomen and makes it firm.

Hips

While riding a spinning bike, you need to use the muscles of your legs, waist, and hips. Hence, the muscles of your hips can be better exercised to become tight and attractive.

Riding a spinning bike as a safer and more efficient type of aerobic exercise is becoming increasingly popular. So what factors need to be considered to select a bike suitable for you? Here you can find the answers (how to choose a spin bike).

Exercise is good for your health but excessive exercise isn’t. No matter how good the course may be, riding a bike on a daily basis is not recommended.

Riding a spinning bike is an aerobic activity, so it takes some time for you to recover after doing it. Riding a spinning bike every day can be harmful to your knees. It is recommended that you ride it while also arranging other physical activities. Three to four times a week is the optimal frequency to ride a spinning bike.
