Stationary Bike

Stationary Bike

A stationary bike is a great way to get low-impact exercise.  It is a piece of equipment usually with a saddle, pedals, and handlebars arranged as if it was a bicycle.  It is possible to rig an ordinary bicycle for stationary use. but most of the time a stationary bike does not have wheels.  Some exercise bikes only have pedals that offer resistance, there aren’t any seats or handlebars.

Regardless of the shape and form, using a stationary bike is an ideal form of low impact exercise.  Riding helps burn fat and build muscle without stressing your knees.  You can build a great low impact exercise program around a stationary bike.  Just 30 minutes a day will help ease the pain of the osteoarthritis in your knees.
