Cycling has many advantages.
It can enhance cardiopulmonary function, reduce the risk of coronary heart disease, and enable large muscle groups to participate in sports.
What specific muscles can you exercise by cycling? Let’s learn together! The main muscles for cycling include quadriceps femoris, gluteus maximus, hind thigh muscle, soleus and gastrocnemius muscle on calf, biceps and triceps of both arms, etc.
Biceps brachii and triceps brachii of the arm when you speed up or climb a slope, the biceps brachii of the arm, triceps brachii and latissimus dorsi of the back will get more exercise.
These three groups of muscles produce downward force, so that you can continue to transmit power to the foot.
▲ the red part is the position of the biceps brachii and triceps brachii of the arm.
In addition to working hard to support your spine, the latissimus dorsi will also ensure that the power generated by the upper body muscles can be effectively transmitted to the legs ▲ the red part is the position of the latissimus dorsi, the quadriceps femoris and quadriceps femoris on the front of the leg Muscle is a group of muscles that straighten the knee.
Its English name “quadriceps” means four heads.
It is one of the largest and most powerful muscles in the human body.
▲ the blue part is the position of the quadriceps femoris.
The gluteus maximus (located at the hip) is slightly quadrilateral, starting from the back of the iliac bone, sacrum, coccyx and sacral tubercle ligament, and the muscle bundle is inclined downward and outward, passing behind the hip joint with a thick tendon plate and ending at the gluteus tuberosity and iliotibial bundle.
Function: stretch back and rotate the thigh outward ▲ the red part is the position of gluteus maximus muscle, the posterior thigh muscle (located on the back of the thigh) ▲ the purple part is the position of the posterior thigh muscle, soleus muscle and gastrocnemius muscle ▲ the position marked in the figure has many advantages of cycling exercise, which can make people confident and energetic, enhance their resistance, and reduce the occurrence of diseases.
Ladies should ride bicycles more, because the front and rear muscles of the legs will be very good, the buttocks muscles will be solid, elastic and upturned, the connection with the waist muscles will be strong, and the calf gastrocnemius muscles will be strong, which is very effective for the lower body shaping.
Note: be sure to stretch after exercise.
Stretching after exercise can avoid muscle soreness, have a certain effect on muscle relaxation, enhance elasticity and ductility, and lengthen muscle lines…
