Why Low Impact?
High impact exercises like running can be good for strengthening your bones but done too consistently can lead to issues. High Impact can be hard on your knees, hips, ankles and other joints. Balancing high impact exercise with low impact exercises like swimming, walking, yoga and biking is a good strategy.
Low impact exercises are easier on your joints, help build strength and endurance, improve cardiovascular health and aide in weight loss.
My Favorite Low Impact Exercise = Biking
My favorite form of low impact exercise is biking. Biking is also a great exercise for beginners because you already know how to do it and it’s fun. Biking helps increase your metabolic rate and builds lean muscle so it’s great for helping you burn calories and get back in shape. Biking is also a great stress relief and encourages you to get outdoors.
To get started visit your local bike shop to get your bike tuned up or shop for a new bike. A local shop will be able to suggest the best bike for the kind of riding you want to do and ensure you select a bike that fits you. Also, get the number one recommended accessory (the helmet).
