do you think that exercise bikes make it harder to keep a ripped stomach and if so how do you get the correct balance without losing your ripped core
Major saidIts actually quite the opposite. If youre speaking about indoor cycling - particularly in a group class setting - it is one of the best ways to work your abs.
I can personally attribute mine to spin class. I rarely do crunches.
You must engage your core for the entire class - to keep your balance - while shifting side to side - during drills and intervals....
Its literally the best thing for your abs - not to mention a low impact way to burn up to 1000 calories in an hour
(which is essential because no matter how many abdominal exercises you do, they wont show unless you are at your ideal weight)
Hop on the bike
alexander7 saidI have a question about this spinning thing too. Are you sitting down on a seat like the stationary bikes at the gym, and if so, how high up should the seat be relative to your foot at the lowest point of the downward stroke?
rustispassionate saidSo, this is going to be the point where everyone laughs, but, having not really been in a gym, let alone spin class...what's spinning?
Honest question. Honestly embarrassed. Let's leave it at that.
GQjock saidCareful what you wish for....
charlitos saidBut guys, what if I dont have fat? My abs are pretty flat, and no matter what I eat, ice cream, burguers, pizza, cookies they remain the same, should I do 100% abs work?
