Spinning is not only the aerobic activity that consumes the highest number of calories. The practice of this exercise manages to burn localized fat, especially in the abdomen, which is one of the places in the body where we are most likely to accumulate lipids that, over time, solidify and are almost impossible to eliminate using natural means.

But, what are those conditions that allow you to obtain the best performance during spinning to lose weight?

How to do spinning to lose weight?

  1. Use the frequency counter
    Spinning is a demanding exercise, which raises the heart rate during physical activity. This is one of the reasons why this discipline manages to burn fat. However – and this may be your case – some women do not achieve the proposed objectives, because they pedal at a very low frequency, trying to stay in a “safe zone”.

The frequency counter is used to monitor the heart rate during spinning. Thanks to it, you will be able to push yourself up to a limit that does not compromise your health and your integrity, but still achieving the right training zone for burning fat and calories.

  1. Wear the right sports shoes
    The spinning bike has a support on its pedals to support the athlete’s foot. Wearing a special shoe – like those used by professional cyclists – can greatly improve performance during exercise.

Professional shoes designed for cycling, have a hard sole, which guarantees efficient transfer of force, from the leg to the pedal, without wasting energy.

  1. Respect the class schedule
    The instructors usually schedule climbing sessions, others of descent and of course, those that simulate routes on flat terrain. Each of these classes requires different postures on the bike, and more or less energy consumption.

If you are one of those who avoid climbing class, and only attend flat terrain or descent, you will not be able to burn fat and calories, at the levels you need to lose weight and tone your body.

  1. The comfort of the chair
    The saddle, or “saddle” as it is also called, on an exercise bike or a classic bicycle, when used for long periods of time, can cause discomfort, pain and even the appearance of boils.

This decreases the intensity of exercise and becomes an obstacle to achieving goals. Using some type of padded fabric, foam or some type of shorts with special protection, will allow you to pedal for much longer, with greater comfort and thus prevent you from giving up overwhelmed by discomfort and pain.

  1. Hydrate the body
    A bottle of water or an isotonic drink will help you achieve a good performance and avoid dehydration. An isotonic drink contains minerals and carbohydrates, which help replenish energy, preventing fatigue. Do not forget that any type of drink, other than water, will provide you with calories to a greater or lesser degree. So, if possible, try to use pure water.
  2. Keep a towel nearby
    It is always helpful to keep a hand towel in front of the bike. Women tend to perspire a lot. Safe spinning requires your hands to be dry or they may slip on the handlebars during class.
