Cycling and Your Muscles

Cycling and Your Muscles

Cycling can have great effects on your muscles and skeleton. There are hundreds of muscles in the human body, and all of them have to be used regularly in order for the body to remain completely fit. In fact, a week of inactivity can reduce the strength of your muscular system by up to half – and the harm of that can be long-term. This is particularly true for middle aged people and older. So of course, you need to keep active – and cycling is one of the best ways to do this.
When you cycle, most of the muscles in your body are being used. The leg muscles are of course the muscles that create the pedalling motion, but your back and abdomen work as well. These muscles stabilize your body whilst riding. You’ll even use the shoulder and arm muscles, in order to support your body by holding onto your handlebars.
