Fitness Centers Honolulu HI

It’s a little more of a thoughtful workout in that you need to consider the route and difficulty level of the roads. Doing speed work on the flats, and hill repeats will get your heart rate up. If you want to gauge your effort level, a heart rate monitor is ideal for understanding your heart beats per minute, calorie burn and length in time of the workout.

Running or Cycling: What Works Best

Q: I am tired of doing the same boring thing at the gym and want to take my workout outdoors. I like biking because of the social aspect but do not seem to get the same workout cycling as I do when I am running. Is one more effective than the other and, if so, how can I make sure I am getting the same benefits?







I can relate to your thinking that cycling isn’t as effective as running. I too had thought that with the coasting down hills and seemingly less effort, one wouldn’t get as much of a workout. Boy was I wrong! I started doing triathlons last year and the cycling was just as effective for cardio burn and leg strengthening as any other sport, including running.

The effort comes in adjusting the tension, requiring the body to work harder or adjusting the gears to “spin” with speed. It’s a little more of a thoughtful workout in that you need to consider the route and difficulty level of the roads. Doing speed work on the flats, and hill repeats will get your heart rate up. If you want to gauge your effort level, a heart rate monitor is ideal for understanding your heart beats per minute, calorie burn and length in time of the workout. In either sport, if you see your heart rate is too low, increase the intensity. Remember, It’s your workout, you have control of how hard you work.
