burns fewer calories Both running and indoor/outdoor spinning are good cardiovascular exercises, great sources of recreation and effective fitness activities.

If your target is to lose an enormous amount of body fat by increasing your overall body strength, and increasing aerobic capability you can’t ignore the benefits of these two forms of workouts.

I have done both large muscle rhythmic activities.

When I was 8 years old we shifted our home to Dixon, which is near about 40 miles away from my grandpa’s home and west of Sacramento in the Central Valley.

From my dream childhood days, I have seen my father and grandpa go jogging at 6AM. I used to wait until they returned home.

As I grew old I also took running/jogging workouts as one of my regular calisthenics and started to regularly visit my nearest gym at Union Way, Vacaville.

I carried out very specific equipment to continue my workouts until I was hit by a drunken car driver near my home last December. I visited the physician with my severe spinal pain.

Till now I have to be attentive to avoid further injury.

My injury insists me to consult few health instructors and general practitioners.

That is why some of my personal incidents convinced me to write today’s post about the inconvenience of doing these specific forms of exercise style.

Since they are experts in their sectors I just wanted to convert their words into mine as I have experienced the real incidents.

Inconsistency in Jogging:

Though there are many big advantages of running at outdoors, it is still not consistence in all terms and situations.

There are some negative impacts as well

• Compared to low intensity workouts it require continuous lots of body movements which can produce a lot of muscle, knees, back injuries, joint problems, stress fractures and maladies.

• Though certain stress can be reduced by wearing safety kits, still there are chances of getting a personal injury and who loves to take lots of precautions. I had fallen on the concrete while jogging and had to be in hospital for a wrist bone fracture.

• It’s a high intensity workout and requires lots of physical and psychological strength.

• Jogging in extremely hot weather can be dangerous and if you have seating problems that will create an imbalance in the fluids of your body.

• As now I have turned 40 I am started to feel boring and the need of entertainment has just increased.

Inconsistency In Bike Exercise:

Cycling at indoor or outdoor are good means of low instance but yet good aerobic exercise.

Though the chance of getting bored are tentatively low but yes I did not get so much fun riding an in-house or outhouse riding.

• Cycling is an aerobic exercise for the lower body but for upper body part I have to continue other weight bearing exercise.

• Improper bike settings or poor forms of posture I had to deal with knee, finger, and thigh problems several times.

• Riding usually burns fewer calories and I didn’t get specific bone building benefits.

• Regular biking equipment like spinning, and stationary are not very safe from falling down to the ground due to no back support and small seats.

How To Get Solution, Finally Found ???

I had to deal with those difficulties until I get introduced with recumbent exercise bike.

The resistance level settings and little modification in exercising style facilitated me to increase the intensity level from low to high.

Moreover, combination of doing exercises with few pounds of dumbbells & workout bands is helping me to build upper body strength and stamina.

Lastly my spinal injury didn’t restrict me in continuing training in this bent at my home.
