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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The spinning bike, similar to the normal bike comprised of the handlebar, seat, pedal, and flywheel, is stably connected as a whole. However, thanks to scientific hardware design, the spinning bike performs better by following ergonomic design principles, making the cycling posture more comfortable.
Professional cyclists, before cycling, will make specialized adjustments to the distance from the seat to the handlebar of the spinning bike. Of course, before riding the spinning bike, we should adjust the height of the seat and handlebar to find the best posture for cycling.
The above pictures show the common design for height adjustments and braking in the market. Magene Smart Bike has not only optimized these functions but also developed the smart control resistance to make operations easier and facilitate smoother training. The above-mentioned is not enough to make the spinning bike excellent. What matters most is the scientific and rigorous control system for test and resistance detection.
MAGENE uses the electromagnetic resistance based on the normal bike and adds the electronic control device to the G801 spin bike. The size of the current through the iron core can change the magnetic field strength around the flywheel, creating resistance to hinder the flywheel movement. It simulates the actual road conditions and gives feedback to users, creating an outdoor-like cycling experience. In addition, the accurate calculation of torque and cadence values can provide multiple exercise parameters to users, thus improving cycling efficiency and increasing work effectiveness to avoid ineffective output.
Now, follow Onelap coach, and let’s look at the detailed structural breakdown of Magene Smart Bike:
The patented and mm-precision quick-release developed by our own is no longer restricted to the traditional bike adjustments of the hole position with the fixed height. Even non-professional cyclists can make fitting freely.
I. Seatpost + Handlebar with Any Height Adjustable from 155 to 185cm
II. Mobile Phone and Pad Sucker, Say Goodbye to Black and White Screens
Fix mobile phone or pad with one hand. It supports mobile phones and pads of any size. Release lightly and it’s fixed stably.
III. Smart Electromagnetic Resistance, 100-level Resistance Adjustment
The resistance supports adjustments from 0 to 99, creating a seamless transition of the exercise intensity and rejecting the improper fitness method without feedback, and relying on pure hand-twisting adjustments.
The resistance size is adjusted mainly through the main control board to control the current size intelligently, without any friction, no required manual switch. The more accurate the adjustment, the more uniform the resistance. The iron core generates resistance through the eddy current magnetic field to hinder the dead flywheel movement. The stronger the magnetic field, the greater the resistance.
IV. View Resistance Level and Power Value at Any Time
The low-end spinning bike sold in the market does not provide cadence, resistance, and other values, but is also unable to connect with the game or applications to provide feedback. Due to a lack of real resistance and the actual road conditions, it is impossible to provide genuine feedback on the exercise effect.
The Magene spinning bike provides more accurate training data, rather than a blind focus on cadence.
V. Coverage Less than 0.5 Square Meters
The light bike body has a net weight of only 30kg, covering an area of less than 0.5 square meters. The rollers on the front floor pipe move smoothly. It can ensure exercise security during its use. And when not in use, this exquisite and compact product can be put away, not taking up space.
VI. Sensitive Speed Test, even to Test a Cadence of 200 RPM with Ease
The speed test adopts the ultra-high sensitivity chip. Even when the national professional player performs the highly intensive training, it can detect the cycling speed with ease and provide the real-time cadence value.
VII. Q Factor: 155mm
The self-developed crank of high strength ensures a lower Q factor. Compared with iron cranks, the crank looks more awesome with greater strength.
The Q factor is the distance between two cranks, commonly known as the pedal stance width. A distance of 155mm between two feet is found to be the best for cycling based on the ergonomic design principles and tests by hardware developers. The 155mm is the most comfortable and effective stance width as the knees are perpendicular to the power point, making the pedaling more efficient.
VIII. Fixed Gear with Fan Blades
The self-developed fixed gear with fan blades can dissipate heat from system operation timely. Compared with the bladeless electromagnetic flywheel, the temperature is lower by 10 degrees.
IX. Colorful Ambient Light
The colorful ambient light enables us to straightforwardly learn about the self-power or the heart rate zone, as well as the training intensity.
—Exercise status without the heart rate monitor: recognize and output the power range according to the always-on model: [red above 91%] [yellow 81-90%] [green 71-80%] [blue 61-70%] [white 0-60%]
—Exercise status with the heart rate monitor: recognize and output the heart rate zone according to the always-on model: [red above 91%] [yellow 81-90%] [green 71-80%] [blue 61-70%] [white 0-60%]
X. USB Charge, Unimpeded Playing
Magene Smart Bike, over one-year polished by dozens of MAGENE engineers, is a new spinning bike that integrates intelligence, courses, games, coaches, and other multiple elements. The new spinning bike, combining hardware and software, together with the MAGENE heart rate monitors, can resolve the dilemma of home fitness without coach guidance and data analysis, but also it can provide 24-hour smart coaching courses and real coach guidance. Hence, exercise will be more scientific and efficient.
Spinning Bike Application Scenarios
Scenario 1: Professional cycling training athletes and enthusiasts training mode
Use Bluetooth to connect Zwift, Rouvy, and other professional cycling software. Outdoor cycling and training are often subject to weather, climate, environment, roads, and many other factors, making it impossible for training anywhere at any time. In this case, a spinning bike can be used for indoor training to avoid the impacts of bad weather and roads on the training plan. In terms of the power value, power accuracy, data analysis, and heart rate, the spinning bike can serve as a bicycle substitute for indoor professional training. Trainees can also sign up for professional large-scale events to compete with global professionals.
Scenario 2: Online competition mode
As a club of game lovers, it provides a joyful game experience but also enables exercise at the same time. Racing mode: Trainees in the same event are ranked in real-time, which inspires the competitive and unyielding spirit. To challenge your opponent is also a challenge to yourself. Be brave to break the bottleneck, and unleash your potential.
Scenario 3: Aerobic fitness enthusiasts
The cadence course provides a new choice for aerobics enthusiasts. The course requires keeping a stable cycling state and meeting the requirements for aerobic exercise. However, the requirements will change. In stable conditions, the exercise intensity will be appropriately adjusted to avoid a sense of dullness. For the same fitness requirements, this mode allows training to be completed more efficiently with less time consumed.
Scenario 4: Group training and family exercise PK mode
This mode supports several persons to exercise at the same time. The exercise atmosphere can inspire exercise enthusiasm, improve the intensity and reduce difficulties. It can also serve as a new way of interaction among the whole family, enhancing the family emotional communication and interaction.
Scenario 5: Riding and weight loss mode for new users
This mode is very friendly to new users. It makes an evaluation based on the user’s personal sports capabilities and customizes the exclusive exercise plan, making fat burning more efficient and scientific. In this way, even though a short fitness duration, the fat-burning effect is still significant.
Scenario 6: Fitness, shaping and physical exercise mode
Abundant courses are available and feel free to shape your body according to self-demands. Just pick up a course, complete the course as required, and then the body shaping effect will be amazing, yet without an easy rebound.
