When we are all worried about whether there will be no one to support us when we are old or about the occurrence of Alzheimer’s disease, an old man in Xi’an really taught us a lesson! The 82 year old wants to ride in five European countries.
At the age of 80, Wang Jingwu, an 82 year old citizen of Xi’an who once rode around Taiwan, has completed his wish to ride around Taiwan by bike.
Recently, he will go to the Netherlands, Germany and other countries for cycling.
“I want to inspire old friends, encourage young friends and take good exercise through my own experience,” he said Research shows that middle-aged people who exercise twice a week have a 60% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease than those who don’t like exercise, which proves that middle-aged people’s adherence to exercise can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease, among which walking and cycling are better.
Cycling is not only free, convenient and pleasant, but also promotes the health and longevity of people’s legs.
At first glance, it may sound a little exaggerated to ride a bike to cure all diseases, but the middle-aged and elderly people and mental workers often ride a bike far away, which is beneficial to the prevention and treatment of the following diseases.
Waist and leg arthritis: cycling (sports food) affects 3 pairs of joints and 26 pairs of muscle activities of lower limbs.
It can not only prevent and treat waist arthritis, enhance the strength of waist muscles and ligaments, improve the flexibility of lumbar bones, prevent and treat low back acid and low back pain, but also improve the lightness and fitness of legs, and greatly delay the aging process of “people’s old legs decline first”.
Mental retardation and Alzheimer’s disease: on the way of cycling, we should not only look ahead, but also take into account the left and right, avoid pedestrians and vehicles, and sometimes pass through sheep intestines, rough roads, uphill and downhill.
Therefore, cycling can improve the brain’s judgment and response ability.
In addition, the turning and pedaling of the left and right feet affect the relevant left and right cerebral nerves, which can promote the balance of the functions of the two hemispheres of the brain, enhance intelligence and prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
Heart disease, hypertension, obesity: often ride a bicycle far away, sometimes it is inevitable to drive uphill or against the wind, which is very beneficial to enhance myocardial contractility, expand vital capacity, improve cardiopulmonary function and the relaxation and contraction function of blood vessels.
Wrong idea 1: will cycling make your limbs strong? You can go and see cyclists who have many years of training experience.
Their strong and slender shape will tell you that you don’t have to worry about cycling making you a “Big Mac”.
Misconception 2: is the more you sweat, the more you can lose weight? In fact, what needs to be reduced is fat, not water.
The discharge of a large amount of sweat is actually the loss of body water, which does not necessarily mean that the body fat has been consumed in a large amount.
Long time slow cycling: the heart rate generally does not exceed 65% of the maximum heart rate.
If it lasts for more than 20 minutes, it will “burn” more fat to supply energy.
Therefore, it is more suitable for obese people with the purpose of reducing fat.
Fast cycling: it can make the heart rate reach more than 85% of the maximum heart rate.
At this time, the body mainly supplies energy through glycogen anaerobic fermentation, which can improve the anaerobic exercise ability of the whole body, especially the thigh muscles, and help improve the anaerobic threshold.
Fast and slow cycling: in addition to taking into account aerobic capacity, anaerobic capacity and cardiopulmonary function, it can also increase the fun of exercise.
If we can get scientific guidance and adopt a more reasonable combination of speed and speed, we will also achieve better fitness results.
Medium speed cycling: that is to control the heart rate at 65% – 85% of the maximum heart rate.
It is a good way to exercise cardiopulmonary function and aerobic exercise ability.
Medium speed cycling is a good way to exercise cardiopulmonary function and aerobic exercise ability.
When cycling, it is best to alternate the above methods, but one of them is the main method, supplemented by other methods at the same time, in order to achieve better exercise effect.
In addition, at the beginning of exercise, riders should not ride too fast.
The time is generally 20-40 minutes.
If they feel tired during this period, they can ride slowly for 1-2 minutes at intervals to recover their physical strength.
After a stage, gradually increase the intensity and duration of exercise.
